Hmm. That ini chunk seems to be okay. I guess it's the missing textures and perspective that gave me wrong impression of effect offset. Not quite sure what's the deal with that though, all materials and textures are in a single shared .mat file. Unless you've had a typo when referencing the file in ship archetype definition, so be sure that all ships have correct reference to no2_playerships.mat. Granted main textures used there are 1024x1024, if all else fails try to scale them down perhaps.

If you want to make them look even nicer try make custom attached lights (light_equip.ini) and put them on runninglight hardpoints, some are on same spots used by turrets. Because of surface material blending mode they aren't going to visibly clip into geometry unlike on regular objects.

I haven't touched the textures, same as in the original download, so i'm a bit stumped myself atm. Because of the boss ship size, i've turned it into a giant turret and that works ok. It's just those lattice lines on the fin. for the engine fx which you normally can't have on a static object, i added an extra fx hardpoint where the engine one is and attached the engine effect to that. Don't know if that makes a difference

ALE effects used for engines are just like any other effects, you can make [AttachedFX] out of dsy_no2_bossengine01 and apply it to arbitrary hardpoint (including HpEngine01) of a static solar object. That's how I tested things without making them full-fledged ships as solars are much easier and quicker to define and put in system.

I just added the artillery ship and that worked out fine, forgot the engine trail fx you did so i've added that now to all the big engines as well. Apart from custom lights, that's the only thing missing. Think i've added everything now
