This might be a stupid question, but when making a Build button pack, do you still need to give credits to the author's of the ships included there?
I'd do it to be on the safe side. In a total conversion when you make your buttons the ships get their credits as ships anyways, but as your just releasing the buttons I'd be polite to mention them.
well if you make a buildbutton pack for these ships, its your work. But i think it makes sense to add the names of the models which you have chosen in your readme. Maybe you can add links to these files.
I wouldn't have actually thought you'd need to include credits for the ship images. They are ship 'images' afterall. If you think about it, from time to time, people will release something, and have an Admirals Log image of a ship (whilst being different to the ship in game) they don't credit that image. Why should they need too?
Well Ash, there is a precident for this. All high detail rendered sci-fi art credits the makers of the ship models used as far as I'm awhere. For example:

I would do what FahreS recommends. You don't need to provide credit, but do list which ones you took them from, so people know which will best fit.
