When you look at Jetfreaks' new ambassador class, your jaw drops and you just say "look at that.....". I know I did. Yet when I get it into the game, it looks nowhere near how great it looks in the screenshots. I have this problem with many good-lookin craft. How do I get it to the standard seen in the screenshots? Any help would be appreciated. Firestorm603. We (Modders) Are One.

Few things ever look as good as they do in screenies, after all, you can 'alter' screenshots and they are taken for aesthetics. Not saying Jetfreak did alter or anything, but lighting and camera position makes pictures a hell of a lot better. And the Midnight Universe package just adds to the whole atmosphere, makes it look damned good.

But when I view the ship in Storm3D, it looks pretty good there, but not ingame! yet it should be displaying the same thing in each!

That may have somthing to do with the way the model is lit? try entering the map editor when in game (ctrl+A) and changing the lighting of the map you are playing - that may help? I dont know why - maybe somthing to do with the way the models are rendered?

If the model came with 4 sets of decreasing quality textures check your graphics settings bar is turned right up, it might not be using the high quality set.
