Which is good, but also something I wasn't aware of.
Let there be light
Let there be moon
Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters and let there be pain
Let us begin to feel again

Just like the name suggests, INFASA is standalone (it isn't even in my FS2 folder) and doesn't need the MVPs as a mod folder to boost the quality of its assets: we take what we need from the MVPs (especially FSPort's, giving the FS1-ish nature of the project) and update the modpack accordingly.

Oh, that' a shame.  :(

Since when making things easier to use and less vulnerable to problems is to be considered a shame? :p

Well it won't be up-to-date and fully supported, so you'll either have to keep updating them or just leave it.

It's a shame that it's either going to be out of date pretty fast or require constant updates that duplicate MVP content.

These are only virtual problems: if the team will not update INF whenever new MVPs come out, I don't see why other community members can't create unofficial upgrades and release them. Even tutorials showing how to upgrade Inferno by extracting files from the MVPs would be welcome.

At the beginning I was a bit worried about this, I admit it - but Woomeister told me why it had to be done and now I wholeheartedly agree with him. There's nothing to be worried about.

I think a standalone could be cool. It'll be fine for most users.

It's incredibly friendly to newbies thanks to its intuitive installer. The hardest thing to do in order to play Inferno will be using the FSO launcher.

EDIT:
All-side view of the GTB Zelos superbomber. (The current version has a perfect cockpit and much better textures, so don't worry.)

I'm working on it, but it may take a while because I intend to add a special graphical effect to the screenshot... ;7

What about them is awful? They're exactly the same as the ones on the Ursa.

The ones on the Ursa have shape to them, they're not just simple cubes as seen on this model.

Also:

Do you like being an idiot? What he said has pretty much nothing to do with what I said, seeing as how I was talking about the missile pods and not the cockpit or textures. I guess I could see how you could confuse them.

I think Zane's point was that the new texture might make the missile pods look less bland.

They would still be just a cube. A cube with a good texture is still a cube.

True, it's a square

Well then, let's find a modder that will change the mesh, shall we?

Let's open the call for help:

INF needs modders, apply please! pretty please?
