Speaking of which, I think it would be really neat if someone did a really clean mod of an EF2 phaser for EF1! Ditto for the tricorder.

@#1 How do you mean that ?

That would be impossible, as EF2 uses Ritual's .tik modeling system while the original EF uses the id Tech 3 .md3 model files. You could take the ones in RPG-X which are a lot better anyway, but you have to ask permission to do it yourself, or ask them to do it.

You are incorrect fraggles, many models from ef2 have been imported to ef1, don't ask how exactly I dono, but I know that it is possible, it just requires advanced knowledge.

I personally prefer the STX phaser over the Voyager one.

They are both good, but on the STX phaser the blinking lights are annoying me a bit, one moment it's set to stun 3 seconds later it's set to maximum. :rolleyes:
So i voted for the Voyager Phaser.

Yeah Ritual did some good Star Trek models but had no idea how they worked. Like the fact that a single micro quantum torpedo would devastate the whole level or arena one plays in.

You would need Milkshape at the least, I think.
If the weapon models are stored in .tan, then you can import them with the EF2 Importer plugin for MIlkshape.... then make a couple changes and then export to .md3
For some reason I think they're in skb format though.. which may or may not work (The Milkshape importer is a bit finicky with skb's). But if it imports fine into milkshape then you're good to go.
