Shipbuilder, I have a specific need for an escape capsule based on the core game model that has serious damage to it like a whole corner missing and cracked glass and the texture should look like it has been burned really bad with smoke damage marring the texture, not much color, pretty charcoal-like. I will use it in CustomShields.oxp if you make it.
Take an idea from one person and twist or modify it in a different way as a return suggestion so another person can see a part of it that can apply to the oxp they are working on.

Quiet day at the golf club so I sketched a few example pods.

@ CommonsenseOTB - I have a couple of small projects that I am helping people with having said that it will probably only be a couple of days work.

I will be very happy to look at a damaged escape pod model towards the end of the week. Oh and by the way your CustomShields oxp looks very impressive.

@ Tricky - You have some good concepts their I look forward to seeing them when you have modelled them. I also aim to post some screenshots of some pods shortly.

Just a thought would it be possible to include a number of pod models in an oxp and have Oolite randomly select from the range of pods included ?

Does anyone have some screenshots, schematics or other references for a core game escape pod model referred to in CommonSenceOTB's post above ?

Those should be in its .dat file in the core Oolite folder.
