ok, what about glitches, when running this mod i cant get back to leeds, either juni gets killed while the gothri are nailing the battleship or else once all enemies are dead we just end up sitting there

Ok I've installed it and it shows the WC names of ships (epee, ferret etc) but none of the new models, only the original FL ones. Any ideas how to fix this?

Most likely you have a corrupted install. Follow the instructions on the website, and be sure to delete your saved games.

Ok wasn't a corrupt install it was a rather silly matter of winzip placing .zip at the end of the folder name. my bad :(
Looking good so far now.

Did you follow Bob's instructions in the 5th post in this thread? He's the only one talking here who'd have any idea how to address your problem.
