And I love that you added a few extra flight group colors for pirate/bandit. If you want a few more done, and have a template already, send it my way and I can knock out a few more for you.

I like that cockpit. Nice job. When would it ever have a beam weapon, though?

Now I'm wondering how hard it would be to implement some analog gauges...

IIRC you can add beams to most ships now can't you?
So better to have the option and not use it than not have it later

Beams can go on any ship in either skirmish or AlliED mission, generally speaking.

EDIT: Also I have no idea why, but images seem to be broken for me. :?

The game engine can do it, sure. I meant anyone who actually would put a beam weapon on a Z-95 is reaching a little.

Fluff wise, yes most likely true. Tactics wise the additional energy dump to engines or a decoy beam if you're in a pinch is helpful. Point is, why would DTM leave out the HUD functionality and leave in place the default beam weapon display in the event somebody does use it. Seems counter productive in regards to immersion.

Shouldn't the Z95 now have a NEW logo over it in the download page?

And it should have been v4.0 not v3.1

New Opt = Major Number
Updated Installer = Minor Number

Where in the download section is this? Does it just replace the Original Z95?

Is it a completely new opt? I thought it just added the cockpit and new flight group colors. If it's a new opt I guess I need to make new screenies.
I also set the new status correctly and under the XWAUCP link is a link now that let's you view only new crafts to make it easier to find them.

I would say so, the model might be the same but it has new higher res textures the cockpit is remodelled so yes new opt :)

Speaking about base and exterior opts: on the fusolage, one new high-res texture replaces more standard textures. There is not a great improvement in quality, but I was not happy with the old alignment of the textures on the fusolage.
The wings have a better textures quality.
Aside from these things, there isn't much new. No new screenshots are needed.

Is it a new opt? No...and yes...maybe ;)

I am trying to put those new flightcolors for the updated Z-95 in to a mission, just having a hard time with it. Is it possible to show a example mission as a tutorial?

Read the readme file: you find it in the Backup folder. As example, you may look at the .ini file of mission 2 Battle 2
