Model Upgrade Pack has arrived! This initial version provides a massive graphical overhaul for the game with some major visual enhancements created by DefianceIndustries and Dark Sentinel. This alpha only has fighters and small craft at the moment, but capships and other items will be added in the future. PopsiclePete and Pedro have helped bundle things up nicely with the OpenGL patch so there's a neat installer that contains everything you need to get going. Advanced users can even dig in a bit further and tweak the game's framerate to take advantage of gr1mre4per's higher end Prophecy Unlimited features.

It's embedded below, but blow it up to full screen and make sure it's streaming in high definition so you can appreciate the full effect!
