Beautiful models! I'm eager to see these implemented in-game. :)

you can add them to your MPR++ mod;

For each model, folow the steps below; this is for the Achilles model:

download the model files and unzip them somewhere. For each ship, TC has provided gfx.zip, a placeholder, HobMappings.xml and package.xml.

1. the placeholder
using UE, load the stbof.res of your MPR++ mod; go to Edit->Graphics->Add/Remove Ship Models and import the placeholder over one of the models NOT USED in your game currently. If you need to make a new place follow the UE tutorial for adding a new ship.

Now comes the only tricky part; notice in the picture above how TC has named his model "HH3" and the place in your shiplist is "L__"; make a note of that; HH3 will become L__

2. HobMappings.xml and package.xml.
you need to add the data line from this (the one enlarged below) to the mpr++/data/mappings/HobMappings.xml and mpr++/packages/Demo_ship_pack/package.xml files in the MPR++ directory under your mod directory. Here you are to replace the hh3 with l__ in our case.
<HobMappings>
<path root="Demo_ship_pack">
<hob name="hh3_a.hob" target="fed_Achilles"/>
</path>
</HobMappings>

<package res="gfx.zip">
<templates>
<ship name="fed_Achilles" unitname="Achilles" unittype="Dreadnought" mesh="Achilles.mesh" sizeX="334.6" sizeY="103.6" sizeZ="735.0"/>
</templates>
</package>

3. copy all files from gfx.zip into the gfx.zip of your MPR++ dir

Now your new ship model is available in UE as i_l__120.tga; notice the l__ instead of hh3; if your original ship was named L_ (like the ferengi Marauder from the picture) the l_ would have replaced hh3.

Bonus: if you want your new ship to display in the Demo shiplist of MPR++ (F12 + d) you need to add it's target, i.e. fed_Achilles to the list in mpr++/data/mappings/UnitMappings.xml; you'll notice there that some ships are listed 2-3 times; just use one of those duplicates to replace with "fed_Achilles" as target.

The Achilles, in game, looks a bit longer that the Sovereign and definitely more voluminous than the Galaxy. I'll link some photos once i get home.
I always envisioned it as a tactical cruiser; we have enough dreadnoughts already (Sovereign, Vesta, Galaxy-X).
If it were up to me, for the next MPR++ release, I would make it a touch smaller than the Sovereign; something between the Prometheus and the Sovereign; 550m in length.

i´m missing something, because i´ve followed all steps, and i can even watch the ship in the demo shiplist (F12+d), but i can´t see the ship in game, i´ve added to the tech list and can build it, but can not see it in 3D :(

regards

did you edit the hob mapping to correct model prefix?

the hob mapping is only an example when model is added to shiplist the prefix will change.

<hob name="hh3_a.hob" target="fed_Achilles"/>

Just plain "L__.hob" with double underscore.

PD: was trying to connect to msn with trillian but it seems it has some problems, lol.

if your prefix is l__ (2 underscores) you would need l___a.hob (3 underscores)

I must say once you take a look at the new meshes, it´s hard to come back to vanilla models. :up: :up: :up: :up: :up: :up: :up:
