Glad to help out. So far I haven't run into any other problems whatsoever, and I'm glad that I haven't been hit with this mysterious .dds problem.
So, not to sound like an ungrateful kid, but are there any plans for the Vasari Flagship, graphically? The other two flagships, despite being kitbashes, flow together really well and look like logical designs for their races, while still remaining unique. The Vasari one...not so much. Most of the time I'm unable to tell it from a Kortul, then I get a smack in the face when I flip to a different view and theres that seemingly random protrusion, and it really breaks up the model.
Obviously this should be taken as the observation of a random bystander, and not as a serious criticism, considering that I don't know the first thing about Sins Modding. (though, if you can use it, I might be able to whip something up in blender later this week.)
