Thanks for the explanation. For creating my SUR file I used the "FL Sur Creator" tool. Seemed to work well for my custom ships and what not. This tool seemed to work well enough for this, do you have another way you'd recommend for creating the SUR files?

Turns out the I had the wrong path for the MAT file in the SolarArch. If anyone in the future has trouble with getting custom stations to appear in game for them like I did, what fixed it for me was adding "HpMount" to the CMP file.

Here is the CMP file

https://www.filehosting.org/file/detai ... Wraith_LargeStation01.cmp

http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=00842562909119468051

Here is the MAT file

https://www.filehosting.org/file/detai ... Wraith_LargeStation01.mat

http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=06380221799373931620

Here is the SUR file

https://www.filehosting.org/file/detai ... Wraith_LargeStation01.sur

http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=87509541864835587010

Here is my SolarArch entry:

[Solar]
nickname = Wraith_LargeStation01
ids_name = 1
ids_info = 1
;type = Planet
type = STATION
DA_archetype = SOLAR\Wraith\Wraith_LargeStation01.cmp
material_library = SHIPS\Custom\DK1\Wraith_LargeStation01.mat
material_library = fx\envmapbasic.mat
envmap_material = envmapbasic
LODranges = 0, 30000, -1
mass = 10000.000000
;loadout = dk1station1
docking_sphere = berth, HpDockMountA, 1400.500000
docking_sphere = moor_medium, HpDockMountB, 150.000000
docking_sphere = moor_medium, HpDockMountC, 150.000000
docking_camera = 0
solar_radius = 3600
shape_name = NAV_largestation
hit_pts = 999999961690316250000000000000000000.000000
destructible = false

I've found out that I didn't add the "HpMount" to the CMP file which fixed the issue when I added it to my smaller (in terms of station size) CMP files, but doesn't appear to work for something like this.

I've been trying to create custom stations for a little while now. It seems like no matter what I've done I can't get them to show up in game. My models show up in Freelancer Mod Studio, but not in the game itself. I've been working in Blender, exporting as an OBJ, then importing the OBJ in Milkshape 3D, then exporting the CMP/MAT files from there, then using FL Sur Builder to create the SUR file.



Things I've tried so far include: changed the "LODranges" values in the solarArch file, changing the "type" value in the SolarArch to planet, using FLModelTool to resize the CMP and SUR file. I even tried importing one of the stations from the base game into Milkshape then re-exporting as a CMP, but ran into the same issue. Not sure if any problems would be on the modeling/milkshape side or elsewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
