Some of you might have already noticed, but there's a new round of models available! Sorry for the late update, but an unfortunate trip to the emergency room and a surgery afterwards has cut my PC time very short these days. So without further ado here's the scoop on the new ships!


First up we have a new ship! Warb Null presents the
Neutron Bulk Cruiser
He has done amazing work yet again and the model turned out great:



Next up two smaller models again by Warb Null
Propane Tank and Cargo Canister
You'll find those packed into the containerPack which has been updated to version 4. They might be small, but they add a lot to the overall immersion and look just great:



Last up DTM did a great update of the
Modified Nebulon-B Frigate
What an absolute beauty that one turned out to be! Just amazing work!

Out of curiosity, What exactly has been improved on the NebB2? The model looks similar, but I guess I lack the attention to detail to notice changes.

You can compare with pictures here : http://www.mtdindustries.com/xwa/1_NebulonB2_images.htm

Basically, Hangar look more like the current version of the Nebulon-B, engine section is like the Nebulon-B instead of inverted and model look better in general.

That said, @DTM I think that it should still have the inverted engine section like the original model...but that just me. It would be nice to have the choice between the Nebulon-B engine section and the inverted one (Maybe to differentiate from the Modified frigate and the made from factory one ?)

Bug report time!

The pressure tank is too detailed and lack LOD, which cause problem in Battle 0 Mission 3 (framerate drops quite low when you hyper in zone 3 where the pressures tanks are with that mod installed)

I think you need LOD on that model

Looking great all! Can't wait to check 'em out!

I did get one error when trying to download the Container Pack:
Multiple Choices
The document name you requested (/download/ContainerPackv4.exe) could not be found on this server. However, we found documents with names similar to the one you requested.

Available documents:

/download/ContainerPackv4.0.exe (common basename)

Please consider informing the owner of the referring page about the broken link.
I won't lie, it's pretty cool that the server is smart enough to find the correct link :)

Ah damn, should've double checked that. Hope to be able to get on my PC today to fix that. But at least the server will tell you what to get ;)

Really nice, especially the bulk cruiser. The original model really stood out like a sore thumb.

Love how these all came out! Was a little surprised by the Nebulon-B2 though, the engine configuration was drastically different from its older brother.

Models are great.
There is a bug concerning the new Pressure Tank though: the new Pressure Tank cannot be part of a convoy.
I explain with a screenshot what I'm saying:
New Pressure Tank in convoy.jpg


When the Arrival condition of a container Flight Group is set to "100% of CTE [XX] must be towing it/be in convoy" the containers of such FG are placed in the train, regardless of their actual starting coordinates.

Since this problem doesn't happen with other containers nor the old Pressure Tank, I thought this problem was related to the new values of the Tank.
So I opened with MXvTED v4.2 both an XwingAlliance.exe with the old one and an XwingAlliance.exe with the new one and I found that the values under all the tabs are exactly the same.

Is it possible that this problem is simply related to the installer?
