Extracting png files from the module

Hello. Is there a way to extract the graphic file (png/jpg etc) from the module itself? Using the mod editor of course. For instance I would like to edit a map and edit the png file that the module comes with it.

tks

I think you would need to unzip and rezip the module.

A .vmod is simply a .zip with a .vmod extension.

Make a back-up copy of the module and then just change the .vmod extension to .zip and unzip it. It will display a folder called "images" that will contain all the graphics used in the module.
