Before you start a mission the selection screens for ships and weapons will try to use the in-game models instead of .anis if possible.

It will use anything that has 3D models in the game.

The next MediaVPs should have a complete set. For primary weapons, you might check out this post. Some of these models clip the edges of the view window in this release.. however, that has been fixed and will be out with the next MediaVPs. They are definitely workable though.

I remember also being confused as to what these flags did. I think the meaning would be clearer if the descriptions read "Use 3d models" instead of "Use models", as is done in sanmadjack's (defunct) launcher.

(I was working on a patch to make these kinds of small revisions to the flag descriptions, but the cumulative changes ended up being so small that I wasn't sure whether it was worth posting it on the SCP forum for review.)

Is the complete set for just primaries or including the rest of the new missiles as well?

The latest FSO builds actually have a feature that tries to replicate the green grid, wireframe-to-full-model and angle shift effect seen in the Retail FS2 ship select screen.  Its not precisely the same and it has some minor visual anomalies with ATI cards, but its an improvement over the standard simple FSO rotating model when the use-models option is selected.

Primaries and Secondaries all have hi-poly tech models. Remember this post? The FSU team gave those missiles a workover too.

Documentation changes usually are small.  If it is an improvement we will normally include it.
