Props can be placed using three different methods. The type of path is defined by the type parameter. Values are as follows:

  • 0 - Single Points
  • 1 - Directed Points
  • 2 - Line strip

0 (Single Points) - it's a list of object positions, one point = one position, you cannot control object direction. Spacing seems to be ignored. Example: treepalm in SF (index: 6 on the props list).

1 (Directed Points) - the point list is a sequence of point pairs. The first point is the position of the prop and the second defines the direction of one of the local coordinate axis. Object can ONLY be rotated around Y-axis and the angle is determined by vector between two points. Spacing seems to be ignored. Example: sp_transbayexit_f in SF (index: 46 on the props list)

2 (Line Strip) - the sequence is no longer a list of pairs. Instead the points 0 and 1 defines the first line segment, just as in the previous type, but the next line segment is defined by point 1 and 2, the next by point 2 and 3 and so on. Each line segment is filled with props, spaced by the spacing parameter. Example: sp_tree1_s in SF (index: 10 on the props list)


struct Pathset
    char[4] id = "PTH1";
    ulong nPaths;    // Number of paths in this pathset
    ulong unknown0;
    struct Path paths[nPaths];

struct Path
    char[32] name;    // Name of object or texture, padded with 0x00
    ulong nPoints;    // Number of points in this path
    ulong unknown1;
    struct Point points[nPoints];
    uchar type;       // See definition below
    uchar spacing;    // Spacing of props placed between the points in
                      // units of 1/4 metres (spacing = (ulong)(metres * 4))
    ushort unknown3;

struct Point
    ulong unknown2;
    float x;
    float y;
    float z;
