Alright, I wanted to have at least a screenshot or something to show you guys before posting again here, but wanted to at least provide an update. Unfortunately, the cockpit models are a no-go. For our purposes, they'd just require far too much re-working in order to be really usable, and we'd probably be better off trying to make them from scratch.
All is not lost, however, because now that the two mods are communicating, we're looking for other ways to collaborate and share resources. They have a number of good looking ships that we don't currently have, and even besides our starfighters we have a good deal of ships that would amazing in their Unreal 4 engine.
We're still in the trial phase of working out the technical bits, but so far it's a promising development that could lead to some great opportunities down the road. I promise that as soon as we have something working in our mod, I'll post a screenshot here for you all to drool over.
