⚠️This repository focuses on REDengine 4 for Cyberpunk 2077. For WolvenKit for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt please see: https://github.com/WolvenKit/WolvenKit-7
WolvenKit is an open-source modding tool for Cyberpunk 2077. Our vision is to develop a standalone software which is capable of reading and writing all REDengine file formats. Additionally the WolvenKit application is designed to simplify and accelerate modding workflows. This repository was created to demonstrate how CDPR's proprietary REDengine reads and writes file formats.
This toolkit is being made solely for research and educational purposes, and the dev team is in no way responsible for any malfunctions that occur from its use. It's completely open source, licensed under the GPL-3.0, and in no way is it made to generate revenue.

An ancestor to this tool was W3Edit, initially developed by Sarcen in 2015, around the time The Witcher 3 first came out. After Sarcen stopped working on it, a few of us picked it up and continued from there.
