2x1 rma max. so its 16x8 titles. there are some half finished models. but i think its not possible to add new aircrafts to game. others will explain.
if you really want to make something good you can redesign that alien human dropship (sorry i forget its name) in such way its 2x2 rma and has 3 exits. 2 side and 1 back. also redesigning herakles in such way that cargo pod would be 2x1 rma wouldn't be bad either. if you can make it.
if you really want to redesigning some existing dropships and making them a bit smaller and nicer is always welcomed.

smaller ships mean more of other terrain in map so can map be more interesting. also having dropship in smaller maps.

i think making some civilian models like aircrafts/cars/trucks would be great if anyone would like to make new maps or improve some existing maps.

Thank you for quick reply.
As i understood you want me to make another ship.(redesign i mean).
I new to the forum and it's a little bit confusing to find what i want.
If possible can you give me exact name, link..etc.
If everything goes right, i can continue for other models that you want me to edit.
note:ı guess you will show me the model i will download and redesign the model you will show me?.

The name is Raptor.
I'd wish for the Herakles dropship to have exits to the sides, as the current model essentially forces the player to waste the first turn. Map changes tend to remove those maps without the dropship on the map, thereby removing the possibility to use Herakles on them. Giving the Herakles more exits would re-add this tactical possibility.

Actually Hyperion is planned for the official UFO:AI and we have a place for it in the aircraft list.

We have a little written in the wiki about its role and technology.

So we do need a model for Hyperion, I hope we can get one finished finally.. :)

Thanks!

all models are in 0models.pk3 (models used in game) you can unzip it with winrar. probably some other program too. for those models that you want to redesign.
