Good stuff man, perhaps we could get this embedded on the moddb page as there's been a few questions about how to install?
New models for Elite and Retribution...

WHilst I appreciate the effort, I think it's sad that people don't read the instructions and then whine the mod is broken, so you having to make a video on it is testament to the general ignorance. Anyway good work!
The internal battery has run dry, the game can now be played. However, clock based events will no longer occur.

Can you make one for Linux users like me? I really wanna play the elite mod, but can't seem to get the install right for the linux version. When I download the file, it doesn't give me an install prompt like it does for windows. I get the raw data packs, extract them into the location provided, just like in the video, and it doesn't work.

The game works, just not the mod.

Added the video to the Steam group overview. Would add it to the ModDB page, but I can't edit things on there. :P

I'm not really familiar with Linux. Anyone know why the mod wouldn't work on it with the same installation process?

I was thinking about updating the video for 2020, but that would be cool if you put it there. I will let you know if I update it.

Sorry for missing the comment, though I wouldn't be much help I have never owned a Linux and thus would not and still do not know how to mod games on a Linux.

Please do! I can't figure out how to get it working with the new 2.9.2 installer. It installs to my Retribution install path but it just won't work. There might be extra steps I'm missing somewhere, please remake it!

If you can wait a few days I will. I travel this Friday so if I can't complete it before then, the guide will have to wait til monday.
