Thanks a lot Galemp! I'll give it a shot! I'll be playing the game when I get back to school, I left my X52 there for break. Sounds like I should be able to get the models I'm looking for.
EDIT: I've gotten into the VP files, and gotten the POF files out, but the link for the POF Constructor Suite that you linked has a broken download link. I got another version off the web but it doesn't have collada support. Any ideas where else I could find a collada export program?
Also, from what I can see in the POF viewer, the fighter models aren't quite as detailed as I was hoping. I'll be trying to put the displacement maps on to help this, but I'm still on the lookout for more detailed versions if anyone has any ideas. The battlestars look awesome, though! I suppose I'm also on the lookout for a model of Galactica, since that doesn't seem to be in game.
Thanks again for your help!
