If the mapping scheme and UV mapping is preserved during conversion, I don't see why.
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

Actually I think the texture have to be adapted a bit, for example the glowmaps aren't handled the same way at all between HW2 and FSO. It's probably the same for normals, but as I never got to test out I can't tell.

no. just swap the channels back to the "normal" way of using them.HW2 uses the typical normal mapping scheme with the added bonus of height maps being included in the alpha channel of the normal maps.

Arparso, the creater of the Nexus Skirmish Tool, was working on a FreeSpace mod for Nexus, though I havn't seen any updates in a while....
Maybe he'll put some BP ships in after finishing with the vanilla ships.

[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward

[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

I'm a huge fan of RTSs (especially Homeworld, which had fantastic mechanics), so i'm really looking forward to playing this; the HW2 engine is quite open to modding and can get scarilly close to Freespace-like effects (i dowloaded the old FSNA mod at one point). Will be interesting having the two factions with such different tactics as you say.

Something i would recommend would be to give Federation frigates the Ion cannon frigate's AI, so they keep the nose aimed at their target and can use their forward railguns as much as possible.

What about Shivans? I know that a Freespace 2 mod is in development.

Or the Vishnans, the great Preserver ;)

Working on it, given that the UEF ships are too much unoptimized for me to work on them.

I can't wait until I get to see those ships on something other than an Intelgrated graphics card.  That, and the hopefully the HW2.0 shaders so they can look as awesome as they should.

BTW: Released mods would be good :nod:

what about the Lucifers flux cannons?
I mean; the UEF ships are powerfull, but the Lucifer (and Sathanas) should be stronger than any type of Terran and Vasudan ship. Especially since it's the only capital ship who's using a shield.

It's gonna have the same stats than in BP. And shields are worth peanuts against beamzor.

Sounds like a good reason not to make it's beams more powerfull to me....
On balance, shields + superbeams would make it too strong.
On story, the shields drain so much energy that they can't install the strongest beams and have to settle with LRed in front and HRed on the sides (I think the Lucy was equiped that way in AoA).
