Well, I have the ability to now import ships into Gmax. Spent some time installing all the many various tools required to modify, import, export ships as well as decompiling all the CAT files into various files and formats such as models and scenes and the many textures and TXT files, which I believe they use as aircraft config files.
I should be able to do some neat stuff with this.. But there is alot to learn. If you remember, each ship has various settings and things which interact with the game, so I need to find out how to do all of that as well as mapping, texturing, developing the CAT ship installer, etc, etc, etc..
But for now, boundry one has been crossed and on to boundry two.
