No, this topic is in the oxz as info url. Changing the WIP in topic title (the subject of first post) to Release is enough.

After almost 2.5 years in the making, it's nice to see this project finally bear fruit!

Like any father i only had a little input. cbr and Norby did the hard yards in the creation of the OXZ .

i even had help with the command module which i couldnt quite get right in wings3D. I cant remember who helped so sorry for not mentioning you. but you gave me the basis from which i spent hours tweaking each little vortice to get a shape i could live with. the Texture is taken from a paper model set of sheets and still really needs tweaking on the spine as it distorted the round pipe ends.
i got official permission to use the artwork from the paper model sheets author so all is good.

Just curious, anybody still maintains this OXZ ?

Great :) . cbr, I will create a standard wiki page for the ships, please have a look after I am finished. Btw while getting the data for the page I recognized some bugs in the shipdata.plist. Do you have update-rights ?

I believe Norby took care of the oxz-managing part.

Since phkb will help us with the update, your gift for graphics is required. The Eagle Transporter could use a normal map, maybe another diffuse map for the escort ? :wink:

wiki page is updated. :wink:

EDIT: Is anybody using the player versions of this ship now ? I will change the keys, therefore if nobody is using it I could skip the backwards compatibility.
