OK, so I just had a revelation.

Right now, there are several ships with different variants - after market modifications, line variants and so on. For the Victory Starfighters Series alone there's 4-5 different variants, meaning I would have to create several different OPTs, or clones of the same OPT with more or less noticable variations. All in all this will bloat up the overall filesize and likely waste ship slots.


With Jeremy's latest update to the Mission Objects hood, I could actually combine all the variants into one OPT and use the ObjectProfile to configure the mesh Layout for each variant.

There are still a few things to be considered - flightgroup colors, varying stats etc., but I think this is a great spot to start from.
