Thank you very much! Very cool mod!

Is there any chance of getting the Phobocaster (Queen Stregas ship in AN2) back to work? I can't get it to load, as it seems the game will only load .msb not .osd files. (I'm a noob doing this stuff. How do you open .osd or .msb files? Blender is not working.)

Thank you!

OSD files are ship definitions that can be edited with a simple text editor. In order to make the Phobocaster work you need to specify the phobocaster msb model file inside a playership osd file and there are many more things to edit, like ship name, camera position, collision, equipment, stats and so on. AquanoxRePak tool can extract AN1 and AN2. Then you can find the msb and osd files and even some different textures because Phobocaster was a playable ship in AN1 multiplayer. There is also a msb to obj converter tool and you can convert models to msh format (not msb) and then load modified msh files into the game. Aquanox has msb load priority, so if you want to load msh you need to use another name that doesnt exist yet or the game will just load the default model. Also converted msh files need manual reworking because the existing tools are all flawed. Getting my modified Succubus to work was not easy.
