Is it possible to change the model of a sub-entity/change the sub-entity while the game is running? I'm trying to make a ship that changes its shape when it goes on injectors, and I want to know if I can do what I described before I continue work on my model so that I don't have to go back and attach the would-be moving parts to the main model if it doesn't work.

Yes, you can remove and add sub-ents 'on the move', so something like you suggest should be possible.

I'm a bit of a Firefly fan and was wondering if anyone has thought about creating said ship for Oolite.

Also on another subject, I happen to really like Ace's Cruiser and wondered if anyone thought of doing a couple skins for it to give some verity to it. I would try my hand at changing the skin color but can't open said oxz. Tried a few times.

OXZ is just a renamed ZIP, if you rename to ZIP you can easily expand it

If you give me new textures I will be happy to do the code for you, easy to publish as an extend.

Okay. I did a quick color change last night on the current skin but could not repackage it.
I'll be honest, I have no clue what I'm doing. Never did a ship texture and definitely have no idea how to code or package anything for a game.
I'm just an artist.

So what 3D modelling software is most popular for ship creation?

I believe Blender is popular - and free.

Thanks for the link! I may well end up using it mostly for non-Oolite related things, but I think I'll be toying with this a little.
