OniTools was a level creation addon for (formerly "XSI") Mod Tool. It is no longer developed or maintained. Nowadays, modders are expected to use Blender rather than XSI.

Download and installation

Install by dragging and dropping OniTools.xsiaddon into Mod Tool's viewport.

OCF thread


  • while in point (vertex) mode, creating a flag/powerup/TV/weapon will move it to the selected point
  • while in object mode, creating a flag/powerup/TV/weapon will spawn it at 0, 0, 0
    • check the point snap checkbox, then use move tool [V] with [Control] to move object to desired point

Change log

known issues of v7.1.x

  • FURN particle not yet supported by export
  • not compatible with OBJ drag and drop plug-in (it appears to be taken down anyway)

known issues of v4-v7

  • manager windows sometime don't update what results in another opened instance
  • slow flag import, I will probably make the flag numbering (textures) optional in a later version (then turned off by default)
  • broken weapon depot update function (temporary solution: delete depot and add all dae file to folder)

Material-depending polygon cluster deletion: You need to find the material.
Material-depending polygon cluster deletion: before and after image.

version 7.1.8

  • material-depending polygon cluster deletion

version 7.1.7

version 7.1.1 - 7.1.6

  • bug fix: TRGV writing/reading
  • CRSA (corpse array) import
  • scaling support for TRGV
  • print absolute position and rotation of selected objects
  • print relative position and rotation of selected objects
  • furniture library (alpha)
  • basic OFGA import / FURN export

version 7

  • a "character export (TRAM)" button (select one bodypart and hit the button, it will select the tree automatically)
  • the code includes the "Make Rotation Keys Continuous"
  • the addon will change your save file settings (to framerate 60 fps)
one person can send a new *.exp file and the other person can make a *.dae from it
old *.exp (that were created based on a 30 fps setting) needs to be scaled down by a factor of 2
  • currently removed the features made in version 6 (hopefully we will not need that any longer)

version 6

  • repair major character rotation flips (beta)
    • select a body part and set keyframe range and flip amount
    • fine-tune problematic zones by hand

version 5

  • pathfinding manager (alpha: ghosts can be created on edges)
  • trigger volume manager (plus BINACJBOTrigger Volume.oni drag'n'drop support)
  • bugfix: flag xml code

version 4

  • flag manager (plus BINACJBOFlag.oni drag'n'drop support)
  • "(un)hide" button works now properly

version 3

  • weapon manager (plus BINACJBOWeapon.oni drag'n'drop support)
  • disables transparency on weapon textures
  • button to access OniXSI resources folder
  • fixes glitchy PPGs (manager windows sometimes switched from "locked" to "refresh" mode, etc.)

version 2

  • better support for future custom resources (check out the readme files in OniXSI resources folder)
    • for example new LSIs can be added at ...\Softimage\Softimage_Mod_Tool_7.5\OniXSI_resources\PowerUps\LSI

version 1

  • powerups manager (plus BINACJBOPowerUp.oni drag'n'drop support)
    • LSIs gets imported with a placeholder geometry (there's no easy way to detect what actual LSI is used for a level)
    • using LSIs from the manager works though (just keep in mind that levels are fixed to one type of LSI)
  • drag'n'drop support for OniSplit update
