Right, I have got a ship that exports fine without any hp's added, but when I add them, the ship doesnt export right (the exported file size is 2kb, and it should be around 85kb). Has any1 seen this before? Any ideas what might cause this??

My money goes towards a heirarcy problem. I've seen it happen in Milkshape from time to time. If you have the nonstock sod importer, try deleting the entire heirarchy and export you model. Now import the ship using the nonstock sod importer, it will have a basic heirarch already made. Now add your hardpoints and then export it again. This usually works for me.

this is a common error, and easily fixed. make sure you node each group otherwise the sod format will disregard anything "un-tagged." use Major Payne's hardpoint tutorial. it should clarify what im talking about.

Pepperman's advice has solved the problem. I know how to hp a ship, but this 1 just wasnt working even though all the hp's where names correctly. Oh well, its working now :)
