Post in this topic and one of the guys will send you the MPR++ link via PM: viewtopic.php?p=37920#p37920

But AFAIK MPR++ uses an outdated graphic engine (OGRE?), so I'm not sure whether creating new ships is recommended?
I don't know how many bugs is too many but that point is reached somewhere before however many in BotF is.

It uses a very outdated version of Ogre3D: 1.8.2 (Byatis) while today they actually are at version 13.4, released Jun 7, 2022.
Since the basics kept same it should not be too much effort to update and patch the ship models and stuff. However, beside all efforts, it is still way off from other engines that could be used for free nowerdays. So whenever I manage to proceed on the project, I will rather look into porting it to some more advanced engine.

Still, when you do some new ship, it is just a matter of exporting it to either format, and it is indeed both easier to export to mpr++ than the original BotF format, plus it allows for much more detail. Therefore it is also way more likley to be re-used when at some point of time we port it to another engine.

In any case you should provide original files of your favored 3D modelling program with appropriate copyright notice. TC will be happy to archive files in his inexhaustable file treasure. :)
