TexMod was created as a modding utility originally for use with Tomb Raider 7 back in 2006.

With TexMod you can find, scroll to view, and then extract Direct 3D textures from from applications that use DirectX from DX9 upwards. TexMod will pack the altered textures into TPF files (TexMod Package Files). After packing the files and then loading the packs TexMod will take the edited textures and inject them into the game engine’s graphic stream which will result in the replaced textures being viewed on the screen.

Texture files are the colors, styles, and designs for all people, places, and objects in the game. TexMod will save images of these textures in BMP, JPG, and PNG formats, in addition to saving in other formats. The usual practice when using TexMod for RCT3 is to extract the images in BMP format and after editing to re-load them in JPG’s (for opaque images) and PNG’s (for transparencies).


After the ripped textures are saved you can edit them using any image editor of your choice. Edited images can then be saved and injected into RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 through TexMod. TexMod is essential to our game nowadays what with the thousands of items of custom content available for us to put into our parks. TexMod will switch on your park giving it an appearance that’s pulled-together, and will make your screenshots and videos look like you have the total package:

As great as TexMod is its development stopped with its release. TexMod offers three modes:

Package Mode

This is the part of TexMod that is used to inject textures into your game. TexMod packs built by yourself or by others get loaded into your game in this mode. When using several packs, packs at the top of the list get loaded first and take priority over packs that appear later in the list.

Logging Mode

This is the mode which is used to extract textures from the game files. With each texture that is saved a line will be added to the text in the TexMod.log file which is the mainstay of package building. A slight performance drop can be expected in logging mode.

Package Build

This gets used after the extracted textures are edited, saved, and the user wishes to build a TexMod package. Modified textures get compiled into a TexMod packages which save as a TPF file. The TPF files compress during creation which prevents further modification.

TexMod doesn’t modify any game files and specific modding tools are not required to use it. In view of this TexMod and the retextures contained inside the desired TPF packs will need to be reloaded each time you launch RCT3.

Mass Effect 3 is the only known game where it is possible to modify textures permanently by using TexMod. That’s accomplished by using TexMod in conjunction with another application called ME3Explorer.

TexMod is available at File Transfer Database.
