Chunk Data

Information

The game's data is split into chunk files, which have an .rpkg extension. These chunks contain all the assets the game uses, and are numbered from chunk0 through chunk28. Each of these "base" chunks will also be accompanied by two "patch" chunks, which follow the format chunkXpatchX.rpkg. Generally, these chunk files correspond to a location in the game and hold the content that is specific to that location (e.g., chunk27 = Paris). When the game loads a level, it will only load the content needed for that level, but the chunks will also be accessed in a specific order. However, some chunks contain assets used in most levels and will therefore always be loaded (e.g., chunk0).

To visualize the relationship between chunks, we can use the Hitman 3 Chunk Hierarchy flowchart. After locating the chunk on the flowchart, all we need to do is follow the arrows. Using chunk27 (Paris) as an example, we can see the chunks are accessed in the following order:

chunk27 (Paris) -> chunk21 (Season 1) -> chunk8 (Legacy) -> chunk1 (Base) -> chunk0 (Boot).

Note that while chunk0 can be accessed from anywhere, it is a one-way street; chunks higher in the hierarchy cannot access chunks lower in the hierarchy. The lower the chunk number, the higher it is in the chunk hierarchy. Therefore, while chunk1 can access chunk0, chunk0 can not access chunk1, because chunk1 (Level 1) is lower in the hierarchy than chunk0 (Level 0). Furthermore, chunks cannot access adjacent chunks. So, as we can see from the flowchart, chunk12 can not access chunk11, but it can access chunk9.
