Obviously the recently-released Erinyes and Centaur models would be included.  Given the string of encouraging images being posted in the Meme thread I would hope that work is progressing on the Faustus, but someone with access to Hades would need to weigh in if that is a short-term possibility or not.  There's also the upgraded Lucifer that Oddgrim was showing off back in the spring.  I'd also like to point out there is a slight problem with the Boadicea, (now THERE'S a model that's itching for an upgrade), that's been around since retail but it only shows up on a debug.  It has two dockpoints that have the same name.  I fixed it in my install by adding a -L for one and a -R for the other (left and right).  I think the Sathanas distantce model suffers from a similar problem.

Already in the files, awaiting for release.

I doubt if I can finish it for 4.5. Mesh is complete, I started working on it but looks like other stuff demands my attention more.

There's also the upgraded Lucifer that Oddgrim was showing off back in the spring.
Unlikely to be included in 4.5 unless Oddgrim pop-up from nowhere. His inactivity period is likely to be caused by overwhelming amount of irl projects, like it always does.

I'd also like to point out there is a slight problem with the Boadicea, (now THERE'S a model that's itching for an upgrade)

Overally it's not going to be huge release like the last couple ones, but it has cool stuff in. Mjn is back in bussiness, I managed to find some time to add my 2 cents to the pile. Aside brand-new Erinyes and Centaur, it will contain upgrades for existing assets like Leviathan and Rakshasa, FS1 versions of Fenris and Lev, new subspace effect, bugfixes and stuff.

It's not gonna be that awesome release with 3 HTL destroyers :]. But I doubt if anybody will be disappointed.

IS the Erinyes model glitched or something?  It only shows up as a cockpit. There is no rest of the ship

Check integrity of your files. The issue you experience is likely to be caused by corrupted download. FSO can't read damaged VP file that's containing textures.

OKay, its working now, and the models are quite impressive. I see the Argo has finally gotten a facelift

Negative. Argo still uses vanilla mesh. One of FSU artists - BrotherBryon is working on update, but BB is busy man and can only pop-up from time to time to space a moment for FS work.

Next revision of MediaVPs is likely to contain his reworked Mara.

Nebula missions do look strange: I can see the black silouettes of all the ships present, an any distance. Any way to fix this?

If you have post-processing turned off, try turning it on.
We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.
