I have a mod that I want to use some specific ships from and put them in my game. Knowing which specific textures go to a specific ship is the problem. There were many different ships added to this mod and each ship could have several textures but the name of each .tga isn't named specifically for each ship.

I can open the .tga and see what the picture looks like but it's not always clear what ship it goes to. Is there a way to find out what specific textures go to a certain ship? Storm? 3DMax? Paint Shop. I actually just downloaded the texture tutorial by Wrath of Achilles but am heading to bed so will check back tomorrow. Thanks in advance.

rifraf. Are the models in A1 format?? If so then you can use the SOD viewer/editor to check which textures. Failing that do you have UU3d to hand?? If you do then drop the SOD into the textures folder and load the model up.

Finally if all else fails then point yourself to this thread:

Thanks for reply MAP, ironically the mod I was referring too was your Borg Incursion VR mod. I wanted to pull some ships/stations out and put in my game so of course for A2. I have none of the programs you listed. I think I have MS Paint on my older XP computer which is what I was using last nite to just open the .tga and see what the picture was. I checked some of the programs on A2files under utilities and may try those. I'm at work so will be tonite when I get home. I appreciate the assistance.

Well what models are you after?? Also whilst alot of the ship models are the same, many of the structure models in the latest mod I did for A1 have been ovehauled.

I haven't totally decided but I liked how you did the cards with the dominion/sona mixed in so I want to use some of those ships. I've decided to use Dan's card ships as well. I'd like to use a couple of your fed ships too.

I guess what started this thread was that even though realizing I could probably download most of these from A2Files, I already had BIVR installed and thought I'd just do some quick copy/pastes and I'd be all set.
