Mod request: New Fighters

I'd like to request several new fighters for Freelancer, starting with the fighters that go along with a previously-suggested mod of mine.

The brilliant people here at the Starport have already created - or rather, reinstated and updated - the legendary Space Battleship Yamato mod for this game.

Therefore, in keeping with the SBY mod I already have, I'd like to ask for the fighters of Space Battleship Yamato 2199, specifically the Cosmo Zero, Cosmo Tiger, and Cosmo Falcon, to be added to that mod.

I would also like to request a new mod adding the Variable Fighter aerospace mecha of Macross/Robotech, the VF-1 Valkyrie (based on the F-14 Tomcat) complete with their alt-mode configurations if at all possible.

Additionally, since the size of the Yamato makes landing a pain in the behind, often causing massive collision damage to the docking rings and invoking combat, I would like to request a mod that enables player ships to moor at stations and docking rings instead of having to go through said rings.

Alternatively, a mod allowing for "ghost rings" that will allow player ships to pass through them without colliding, could be of use. I believe that one of these is included in a previous version of FLMM.

To fix your docking problems, you can either use the moor code from the new balancing or rename docking_ringx2_lod.sur

Just my two cents:
Unless you can find free as in freedom 3D models online you are probably on your own. What you are asking for is hundreds of hours of work, if you need to create the models first or >20 hours if you find models and know what you are doing. Add even more for custom equipment (models).

OK, I have images to work from and blueprints for the Valkyries, but not custom models so that could be a problem.

Could I bother you with a commission? You did a really, REALLY good job on the Yamato herself so I know you can do a great job with the fighters.

Also, how do I access the mod files? I like the old balancing but I'm afraid to "screw around and find out" how to add the moor code or change the mod files as I don't want to accidentally mess up your superb mod fixes.
