WORLD.WDB or World DataBase is an asset file for LEGO Island. It is one of the few files copied to the hard drive during installation rather than the majority which are streamed from CD-ROM.

Overview

WORLD.WDB is the only .WDB file in LEGO Island, unlike the much more common Interleaf File format. As such, it is generally even less well understood. It does not follow the chunking/streaming conventions of the Interleaf format as it is always read from hard drive.

Contents

It is known that WORLD.WDB contains most of the 3D models used by the game and many of the textures (but notably excluding the phonemes, which are in Interleaf files). There have been successful attempts at ripping and even swapping assets from WORLD.WDB, but no known attempts at reconstruction.
