I downloaded VPView to extract the contents of the ship.tbl for the apoc. and diablo and some other ships i downloaded, and i was wondering how to extract the contents?  Also the Diablo and another ship i downloaded, when i unzipped it, it just had the .pof file and a text document that was called "ships_tbl_entry", there is no .pck files or anything, is that the way it is supposed to be or is the download bad?  I downloaded the Apocolypse and it had all the .pcx files in it, i just needed to extract the ships.tbl contents which i am here to ask.

If the model references textures already present in the FS2 VP files, there is little point in making them part of the download.

Extract files from VPView by clicking on Extract.

ships_tbl_entry is the text file for the entry you add to end of the ships.tbl to use the ship.

also, the Diablo only uses textures already contained in the FS VP files, so you don;t need to DL those.
