@MrQuetch Now THIS is some amazing stuff! You haven't implemented animations yet right? I was having a lot of trouble making them work with Blender, but actually I don't remember exactly what was the issue... I think it was related to the rotation of the bones, the logic to storing the rotation information seems to differ a lot between Maya and Blender.

I was using SpriteIlluminator to create the normal maps, and got the sprites from a slightly modded version of LBArchitect (I just changed a button from export to batch export to make my job easier). The AI upscaling can be easily automated but I have no idea of how to implement them in the original game, maybe the lba2remake could support it? I made a small application to slice the upscaled sprites back to bricks so that would not be an issue.

You mention having something for Blender, would you be willing to post that? Even just having the rig would be an improvement on my STL exporter. I'm 3D printing a bunch of the characters and it's tricky finding a decent pose that will print well.
I will be uploading the Blender version soon, the only issue with that version is the missing animation importer, but the rigging is working so you can at least pose the models.
