Each field contains a chara.one file that contains multiple field models (PNJs), or calls to main fields models (Squall, Laguna...).

Header

Offset Length Description
0x00 4 bytes Number of models (not present in ps version!)
0x04 nbModels * varies bytes Model headers
0x04 + nbModels*var 256-(0x04 + nbModels*var) bytes Padding (the header is always 256 bytes)

Model header

For each model:

Offset Length Description
0x00 4 bytes Offset to model textures + data. Warning: in pc version, you must add 4 to this offset!
0x04 4 bytes Size of model data
0x08 4 bytes Size of model data (bis). Warning: Sometimes not present!
0x0C 4 bytes if this DWORD >> 24 == 0xd0, there is no tim offset list, and "model data offset" is 0 because this is a main field model
0x10 Varies Tim offset (relative to the "Offset to model textures + data") list, ends with value 0xFFFFFFFF
0x10 + Varies 4 bytes Model data offset (relative to the "Offset to model textures + data")
0x14 + Varies 8 bytes Model name, usefull when you must call a main field model

This is the same data structure as a MCH model (without header). In the PlayStation version, each model textures + data is LZS compressed.
