tobj is a section in the item definition file in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto IV. It is used to define standard map objects similar to the objs section with an additional in-game time range defining when the object gets rendered. GTA IV also support time controlled objects linked to animations through the tanm section. Most, if not all, time objects use the object flag 2 (DO_NOT_FADE) to prevent them from fading into and out of view at those times.

Type 1

This is used for non-breakable objects.

GTA III GTA Vice City GTA San Andreas Identifier Type Description
A Id integer Unique object identifier.
B ModelName string Name of the .dff model file without extension.
C TxdName string Name of the .txd texture dictionary without extension.
D MeshCount integer Number of meshes. 1 for this type.
E DrawDistance float Draw distance in units.
F Flags integer Object flags.
G TimeOn integer Hour to appear
H TimeOff integer Hour to disappear

Type 2

This is used for breakable objects.

GTA III GTA Vice City GTA San Andreas Identifier Type Description
A Id integer Unique object identifier.
B ModelName string Name of the .dff model file without extension.
C TxdName string Name of the .txd texture dictionary without extension.
D MeshCount integer Number of meshes. 2 for this type.
E,F DrawDistance1, DrawDistance2 float[2] Draw distance in units (one for each mesh, only the first is actually used).
G Flags integer Object flags.
H TimeOn integer Hour to appear
I TimeOff integer Hour to disappear

Type 3

This is used for complex breakable objects.

GTA III GTA Vice City GTA San Andreas Identifier Type Description
A Id integer Unique object identifier.
B ModelName string Name of the .dff model file without extension.
C TxdName string Name of the .txd texture dictionary without extension.
D MeshCount integer Number of meshes. 3 for this type.
E,F,G DrawDistance1, DrawDistance2, DrawDistance3 float[3] Draw distance in units (one for each mesh, only the first is actually used).
H Flags integer Object flags.
I TimeOn integer Hour to appear
J TimeOff integer Hour to disappear

Type 4

This is used for non-breakable objects and behaves equivalently to Type 1.

GTA San Andreas Identifier Type Description
A Id integer Unique object identifier.
B ModelName string Name of the .dff model file without extension.
C TxdName string Name of the .txd texture dictionary without extension.
D DrawDistance float Draw distance in units.

GTA IV

tobj
ModelName, TxdName, DrawDistance, Flags, Unknown, MinX, MinY, MinZ, MaxX, MaxY, MaxZ, SphereX, SphereY, SphereZ, Radius, LODModel, NightFlag
end
GTA IV Identifier Type Description
A ModelName string Name of the .wdr model file without extension.
B TxdName string name of the .wtd texture dictionary without extension.
C DrawDistance float Draw distance in units.
D Flags integer Object flag.
E unknown float Unknown integer (0 by default).
F,G,H MinX, MinY, MinZ float[3] Lower left corner of the bounding box for the object.
I,J,K MaxX, MaxY, MaxZ float[3] Upper right corner of the bounding box for the object.
L,M,N SphereX, SphereY, SphereZ float[3] Center of the bounding sphere for the object.
O Radius float Radius of the bounding sphere into all dimensions.
P LODModel string Name of the .wdd file that contains the lod model for the defined modelname.
Q NightFlag integer If enabled (1) the object only shows at nighttime, otherwise the object gets only rendered at daytime. Day- and nighttimes are hardcoded.
