Basically, I'm hoping to get the WC I and II ships working in Freespace Open (maybe eventually Star Citizen). I plan on starting small and going from there. If I could get the ferret, Sartha, confed pilot and Caveravin Station models that would get me off to a great start. Im not too worried about poly limits at this time.
Sorry to hear about your troubles. I hope things are rectified soon. Thanks for all your help!
If you don't want to pay the monthly rental fee for Cyrsis engine, look at Unreal 4 for the time being. It's free and you can work surprisingly fast. It converts many times faster than POF and you can get a nice walkaround of the ship. (This really helps in finding little bugs in the ship)
