Madden Stadiums in FIFA? Possible?

FYI, on a similar topic to Madden stadiums. I'm doing some digging with a group that does NCAA Football 14 mods for consoles, and there's a good chance we can find a way to get stadiums out of that game into FIFA.

I'm still in the early stages, but it looks promising. Here's a rough early view of one model I'm working on. A lot of cleanups and figuring out to do, but the data is there. This is Spartan Stadium which was home of the San Jose Earthquakes in MLS from 1996-2004.

If anybody's good at, or has experience with pulling 3D model data out of hex files, that would be a big help at this point. That's the main challenge with NCAA stadiums right now.

Making good progress on figuring out the NCAA stadiums. Got the models and faces extracted correctly. Next step is the textures.

I've made some progress on textures this week. The conversion is a messy, though. Definitely not a straight copy/paste. Most parts convert cleanly, but not all of them, and there's a lot of guesswork involved in matching the textures.

A lot of work still to be done - several remaining stadium objects, ambient textures, crowd placement, lighting, etc. It's going to get there. Not an easy process, but it's come a long way since just 10 days ago.

Great work mate. Did you made the crowds? Or you are able to convert it?

From what I've seen so far I'll have to make the crowds. Doesn't look like NCAA uses the same format as FIFA.
If you find the crowd files and use the 3D hex its possible to transform in crowds, even If the format is not the same. I ve been doing this for Football Simulator stadium.

With NCAA it doesn't look like the game has individual meshes for every seat like FIFA does. I haven't spent a lot of time looking at it yet, but from what I've seen I'll have to create the seat meshes myself.

That and lights will probably be the last thing I do, though.

Getting close...

I'm ready to start testing it in the game, however...

I've hit a snag. I can't get the textures to export. I'm getting the error below. Usually, I can figure out what's wrong pretty quickly, but this one has me stumped so far. Any ideas?

Send to me, I will take a look.

Did you manage to extract the textures?
