ACTI records contain information on activators, which seem to be of 2 main types:

  • Actual objects with models (and/or destruction information)
  • Simple triggers with nothing more than a name and VMAD information.

This seems to be an older alternative to FLOR/TREE as most of the harvestables are in those 2 record types but there are several functional types here as well such as Nirnroot.

Record header flags:

NavMesh Import Options (at most one is set - defaults to Collision Geometry)

0x04000000 : Filter
