That cockpit area in particular looks gorgeous.

Is this based, in any way, off of TrashMan's Athena mk2 that was at one point being used as a (crummy, cause it wasn't right, nor was it ever even intended to be used as such) standin?

Only inasmuch as I pulled the cockpit from it to use as a foundation. Rest assured, the base geometry is based off the retail Athena.

Yes. I can't put too much effort into editing them since there's a lot of stuff in there that is either duplicated from what we already have, or stuff we wouldn't use anyway (like weapon variants.) If you have a TBM and a bitmap that replaces the FX for a weapon we already have in the Port, then I'll use it for a while and see how I like it, but I don't really want to have to take it apart and figure out what you've done.

Also please don't hijack my threads. :(

You know, despite its flaws, I actually liked a lot of the geometry found in Trashman's Athena:

(a.) The cockpit did have a lot of problems, but it blended in well with the hull of the bomber - the retail Athena never was able to do that. As a whole, though it missed a lot of details, the details that were there merged in well with the rest of the design.

(b.) The gun housings on Trash's Athena I felt were particularly well managed. Again, they complimented the bomber's appearance, and the uppermost housing made A LOT more sense than the low-poly job found on the retail model, in which a gun would assumably never fit.

That said, I know this commentary is kind of moot, but that's just my perception of the design elements. For the record, I would have played with the model of the Athena Mk. 2 myself if it were not for the fact that it would crash PCS2 upon trying to export the model...

Sorry to "hijack" again, but the last pack I sent you had pretty much nothing taken from any other sources; Talon1024 had made all of those effects himself. And it's not hard to figure out which one is which considering that I labeled them "ML16_Bitmap", "VLL9_Bitmap", "Training_Bitmap", etc.

The model's attached, you could just pull it up in the Ship Lab (F3.)
