Texture Compositor - TXTC
Game Version:The Sims 3



This format is internally known as the "TextureCompositor". It describes the process of combining various texture files into what is actually rendered in the game. Texture Steps are to be read sequentially, as the previous ones affect the ones that follow. Sources are generally external textures referenced by an image key, destination represents the render texture specified by the steps, thus a virtual texture.


DWORD	// Version
DWORD	// Offset of the I64GT Count from the end of this DWORD

--if Version >= 7
	BYTE EmbeddedTxtcCount
		BYTE	// TGI index for this embedded txtc's resource key		
		DWORD	// byte size of this embedded txtc
		--Insert another TXTC
		BYTE[3]	// don't know but seems needed

DWORD Pattern Size
DWORD PartType
BYTE //00
DWORD	// entry count

--if Version >= 8
	BYTE //00

--repetition(entry count)
	{Entry}	// see below

BYTE	// I64GT Count
--repetition(I64GT Count)

Entry format

An "entry" is made up of a repeating group, as follows:

--Repeat until the next "property id" is 0x00000000
	DWORD	// Property ID - see Properties below
	BYTE	// 0x00
	BYTE	// Data type - see Data types below
	{Data}	// 
DWORD		// 0x00000000 the next "property id"; not a full entry group

Property IDs are derived from an internal name hashed with the FNV32 algorithm.

Step Types

These are the known values for the ID field of the properties. The ID is derived from a FNV32 hashed internal name.

ID Name Description
0x034210A5 Draw Fabric Draws an embedded fabric txtc. This comes from Default fabric parameter, which has overrides all over the place
0x1E363B9B Channel Select Masks future steps based upon the colour from the "Channel Select" parameter using the mask texture in the "Image Key"
0x43B554E3 Skin Tone
0x5D7C85D4 Hair Tone
0x890805DB Remapped Channel Select
0x9CD1269D Colour Fill Fills the texture buffer with a colour, this is often limited to a masked channel
0xA15200B1 Draw Image Draws an image to the buffer, this is affected by masked colour channels, src/dest rectangles and src/dest blend factors
0xC6B6AC1F CAS Pick Data
0xD6BD8695 Set Target Sets which render target future steps will use
0xDC0984B9 HSV to RGB
