The Secret Ops Model Upgrade Pack is itself getting an upgrade! One of its earliest ships, the Tigershark, has been revamped and looks better than ever. DefianceIndustries has cooked up several variants including a generic Confed skin, Diamondbacks Squadron version for WCP and a throwback green livery for Secret Ops. The renders below look fabulous, of course, but the in-game shots are just as pretty! Stay tuned for another significant playable release due out soon.
Admission time: I dislike the MUP Tigershark. I did it along time ago without the benefit of the actual mesh only loose guesses based on the renders. So while it's passable, it's not my favorite. So... what to do? Make a gen 2 Tigershark model!
On another note, I've begun packaging up the files for the next MUP release. I'll update everyone when we have the next package ready to go as well as the full changelog and feature updates.
Look for this and other fun enhancements coming soon!
