As the title states. I was curious as to what the process of taking ships/stations from Fleet Ops and putting them into basic A2 would be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time/help. =)

You'll need to get the model (sod) from the SOD folder. You'll also need the textures that go with the sod. Sometimes they are labeled to easily know which sod they go to other times not so easy. You can use a free program HxD to look at the sod file. On the right side of the file is all the info about the model including the textures. It'll take practice, but you'll soon be able to pick out the textures that are assigned to that sod.

You'll also need the ships ODF file. Once you have those 3 items you can put them in your stock A2 game. In the odf you'll need to scroll down about half way and change the name of your weapons as they won't match anything in stock A2. You'll also need to add the name of this ship to a construction yard in order for it to be built.

That's a very brief description, but should get you started. It'll become second nature once you do a couple and know what to look for. Regards

If I remember correctly some of the lights and stuff attached to the models used for fleet ops are different to stock. So I think you will need to either change them in a modelling program, or find the relevant entries in the sprite files and copy it across to your stock files
