I loaded the files into c:/users/appdata/local/ironclad/sinsofasolarempire/mods (the default mods location). The game runs just fine, I can build all the normal ships, not the new ones, no crashing or anything like that.
Are you playing as TEC, building scout, light frigate, and battleship? they don't look any different until you build them, just b/c I haven't had time to change the buttons for them... Sorry for my recent lack of progress, I've just been caught up with the upcoming finals. For some reason, all the professors decided it would be a good idea to put a lot of tests and labs condensed at the end of the semester, even though there was plenty of time last month and the month before when we were doing nothing (see U.S.S. Lakota
). I'll upload the xsi meshes tomorrow for you all to tweak if you want. and if anybody would like to give a hand texturing (hint, hint) that would greatly expedite the release process... I've got one new trek ship mesh, the sabre, a half a new trek ship mesh, the defiant, and one new halo mesh, a CCS Battlecruiser (wtf?). I'll upload them tomorrow, and depending on what kind of response I get to this, either start texturing the sabre, or if someone else is doing that, start modeling something else.
Thanks for keeping the thread alive, even if I'm not!
Oh, and p.s., I'm going to release an update with gameplay improvements soon, hopefully, so those of you who just want to play, and have no desire to mess with meshes will have something cool to mess with instead.
