What is a WolvenKit project?

Mod Projects are the core of WolvenKit functionality. Projects are primarily used to separate and organize source and game files into distinct directories. Each project can be thought of as the source code for any given mod. The Project Explorer is the central component for each mod project. Project files are separated into two main system directories: The archive directory is for W2RC files. The raw directory is for Raw source files. These are core directories for WolvenKit's file operations. These folders are never exposed to the game inside the packed mod.
WolvenKit expects unbundled files with Oodle compressed internal buffers. Files extracted with WolvenKit Console using uncook cannot be packed correctly. All files added with the Asset Browser will be the correct format.
