hey Brad, just got an idea, maybe in order to keep the textures of WCU ships we are modeling of the same design, maybe i should texture them? That way you may mainly concentrate on the model developing and all the ships that come with WCU will have the same style, which is essencial for the game. Just when the model is finished and UV maps are layedout you may send them to me and i'll start to texture them with the same style i did Rapier and Shuttle, is it a deal? Of course keeping the original color schemes.
Concerning original textures... well that's another thing, you still may continue do them for your ships and i'll be doing for mine. So there be not oly 99.9% proper modeled ship but textures as well.
