as i am too stupid to add my a.gif texture via blender - can anyone show me a *.hot file where there is only one *.gif as texture?

i guess i can simply add this via editor in *.hot ;)

i am also lacking phaser slots ;)

as last resort: when i have to buy the program (which i would do - but later - but have to save for maledives in may) it would be nice if you could add 4 forward phasers and 2 rear phasers and create a hop that has a texture.

i added: *.flt + *.obj + *.mtl (i guess you dont need this) + *.gif and even the *.tga - so i guess you have all you need to make it working ;)

nice model, But if you want it in BOTF you will need to limit your faces at least by half or be able to combine them during conversion

hob file has approx. 500kb limit and this = about 1000 face model with bsp planes

creating models for BOTF take a lot of practice and time. it is not easy, that is why you don't see as many models as other games.
