Uh... that depends. I know of at least three that are either finished or in progress. I promise I'll look into each of them and pick the best to go in.

Re: Latest FSPort MVP releases here
How will this interface with other mod files that use the FSPort?  Do you need to add an addition to the secondarylist for fsportmvp?  Why not just add it to the fsport file?
Normal people believe that if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
The difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers is:
Mechanical Engineers build weapons.  Civil Engineers build targets
An optimist sees the glass half full; the pessimist sees it half empty. An engineer sees that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: Latest FSPort MVP releases here
Because the FSPort files are designed to be retail compatible. FSPort MVPs are not.

As for interfacing with other mod files, well, it would behave just like FS2 campaigns; you would either need to edit their mod.ini to specify the FSPortMVP folder, or make an updated version specifically for the MVP (just like the Campaign Restoration Project did with Derelict.)

Alternatively you can just plop the VP into your main FSport folder and forget about it. But that's at your own risk as then bug reports can't be reliably disentangled.

Re: Latest FSPort MVP releases here
Can you post a screenshot off the GTS Centaur? I started working on one and i might have to abort it and do something more productive.

Re: Latest FSPort MVP releases here
A HTL Centuar is actually about 2/3 done in among the HTL uglies. Cockpit and neck is on the Comanche, engine section is on the Navajo. Considering the overall simplicity of the thing it shouldn't be hard to whack a centre section together and make a new texture for it. Those models can be downloaded from freespacemods.net if you wanted to have a go of that.

(Incidentally there's also around 1/3 of an Athena as the right wing on the Seminole.)

BTW, if you wanted something simple to do and yet needed - well apart from the TC-Tri, SAC3 and TAC1, all the cargo units remain un-HTLed. ;)

Re: Latest FSPort MVP releases here
There already is an HTL Centaur; I uploaded it to freespacemods at this location.

It was evidently made by:
Model - SLICK2K6
Mapping - Woomeister
Conversion - Woomeister
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

The cockpit on that thing is terrible :ick:.  Even worse than the standard one.

Re: Latest FSPort MVP releases here
Soon there will be two off them. Sorry, i spend the whole weekend working on Vasudan Admiral's model and i think that the result is a litle bit better.
However we must find a way of communicating more efficiently about this matter. :beamz:

Re: Latest FSPort MVP releases here
Bumping a sticky thread. Heh.

Official 3.6.10 Media VPs are released... however due to some delays with the next FSPort release, which is also a dependency, the FSPort MVPs won't be coming for a little while. I'll do everything I can to wipe out the last remaining delays and get them both out this weekend (12/14.)

Sweet. The community looks forward to it.
I did consider making my biggest necro-bump to ask about that in this thread...but wasnt sure if i'd get in trouble bout it.

Hmm wondering how long it will be before playing Normal-mapped FS1 and ST/ST:R....

Shaitan? Scorpion? An00bis (as I recall someone was working on an An00bis but it was never finished)?
