The aim of the NifTools project is to build software that enables users to create and edit content stored in the NetImmerse File Format. These NIF files store the 3D models used in several popular PC games based on the NetImmerse/Gamebryo game engine. So far, we have focused our efforts on NIF files from TES3: Morrowind, Freedom Force, Freedom Force vs the 3rd Reich, Dark Ages of Camelot, Zoo Tycoon 2, Civilization IV, and TES4: Oblivion.
If you are skilled in reading hexadecimal, or programming in C++ or Python, and want to help out, please read the article on How To Contribute. We can always use more help and would love to see some of the abandoned projects picked up by a new person!
You can visit our NifTools forum for the latest news, to get support, or to discuss game-specific modding techniques using our tools with other users.
Everyone is encouraged to be bold and contribute to this wiki! If you have no idea how to start out, consult MediaWiki's user's guide for information on using the wiki software. The first thing you probably want to do if you want to start editing, is sign up.
