BSG Ships

Coxxon & Icewindo

So, here's a small BSG pack containing fighters and 2 freighters (models from "Coxxon", see credits). I also added a link to my Asteroid Field space map. The fighter don't have cockpits, but it's still fun to shoot some toasters.

The models are also not exactly at ArmA levels polygonwise, but imo Coxxon did an outstanding job on their quality.
Note that the AI will prefer missiles to shoot, but once they're out, they will also use normal weapons (Kinetic Energy Weapons).
I may update this pack/add more ships in the future.

If somebody wants to spice the addon up (e.g. scripts, custom animations... particle effects... - aka. "all the stuff that makes my head spin") speak up.

- Viper MK2 with 2x KEW, 8RD Missile Launcher and 2 mounted missiles
- Viper MKVII with 3x KEW, 8RD Missile Launcher and 2 mounted missiles

- Raptor (unarmed)
- Colonial Movers Freighter (unarmed)
- Another Freighter (unarmed)

- Cylon Raider with 2x KEW, 8RD Missile Launcher

As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

Included files:

Known issues:
- shadowLod on some ships (I got thoseweird shadow artifacts on some, so I disabled them)
- Gear animation doesn't work yet
- there are no cockpits in first person
- Cylons Raiders will parachute, leaving just a parachute since I used a gamelogic to pilot them -> needs a script to delete the "empty" pilot on eject?

mlods :
Just so if anybody wants to work on this further or learn by studying the files, here are the mlods for the units + space ships as I'm on "modding leave".
Feel free to use these for addons or improve the current addon and thank Coxxon for these awesome ships.
Download the mlods from here.
