I was hoping someone could help me. I've imported two new ships into SF3, but they are only displaying as solid white, no textures. I've imported ships before and haven't had this problem. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I appreciate any help.

Most likely, it is because you are lacking the VL file for the ship(s) you have imported. You can create one by using a mod viewing program (a free Taldren version can be found here: After manipulating the image, transfer it to a suitable image program like Photohop and save it to the model file as .bmp. A fully functioning model file should have its own BS, TI and VL file. The problem may also be that the file was not transferred with the necessary bitmap images and/or were not converted and/or layered properly. This can be done, but requires you to have a modeling program.
