I'll be honest, threads like this one really tick me off. And it's not because people disagree with an implimentation of a model, it's because we (be that Bob, or Galemp, or Raa, or FireCrack, or WeatherOp, or Raven, or Nico, or myself, or anyone else who spends their free time to build these things) get crap no matter what we do to improve them. If you still want the old Orion, it's a two minute job to extract it from the retail VPs and we don't have to hear about it. If you want to make a high poly one yourself, then please do so. If you want to make suggestions about how to improve them, then that's great too. Every person I listed, besides maybe Nico (who's the best moddeler among us anyway) actually takes that sort of thing into consideration (not that you'll see it necessarily, but we do listen and often try them out). Simply saying that something "is bad" is helpful to no-one. Especially when people say polar opposite things and expect everything to be perfect.
Oh, by the way, one damaged ship is fine, but if you apply it to the HTL model, you wind up with every instance of the class being damaged in the exact same way.
