Importing Custom Models which aren't in the \Objects folder is quite tricky though, I would only post instructions if you intend on doing that.
I'd like it very much if i can do it, i want to get an alternative appearance for the mothership. But then, how will the custom model deal with turrets and rockets ( for fighters-class crafts? ).
