This is not the thread for requests :) 

That said, you got lucky, I once did a bunch of FL modding, so I'll explain what you'd need to do. 

About the only way you could do it and have it look halfway decent would be to export all the CMPs via the Milkshape3D exporter tool, convert the DDS textures into something more suitable, then render it in your choice of software.  It's something that would take ages to do even if you're very good, to be frank.

Even doing it the crappier-but-faster way (viewing the meshes in HardCMP and taking screenshots) would take a long time and the results wouldn't be terribly good, because you wouldn't have shadows and all that.

If it was easy, I wouldn't have kitbashed so much.

i have an idea, so a huge try-tachyion fleet was destroyed and they've got most of the wreckage of a oddysye,a astral, a paragon, and a whole lot of broken hypierions (that means you can only use those kind of parts), and i want it to have the roundy boulbus shape of the oddsyye, the the flux capability and shield of the paragon, and the speed and teleportation of the hypierion good luck ;)

Taking someone work isn't taboo, it's illegal! (unless specifically told otherwise, and even then it depends of the author's country laws). Besides, very few of the sprites here ever get used, so the risk isn't worth it.

 I doubt this will lead to any legal issues, I'm not getting rich out of it or anything besides I don't think he even cares anymore, but yea if he comes back and wants it taken down I will do so.
 I don't expect much fuss from an abandoned sprite posted on a cemetery thread anyway.

It isn't... common practice to undertake illegal activities just because no-one cares. If you can't obtain permission from the creator to use their work for whatever reason, you assume you may not use it. Simple as that, at least as far as I'm concerned. The fact remains that the sprite is an original work, and although the creator may be perfectly alright with its reuse, you simply cannot know for sure. And to be frank, if it turns out he really doesn't want you to use it and a massive stink come about as a result, that'd just be awkward for everybody.

On that note, I'm digging up this sprite from the previous page for use in my mod;

Although unlikely, it -can- lead to legal issues. Plus it just isn’t very nice to use other people’s work without requesting permission first. Even if your intentions are honourable (which they obviously are!). I suggest you email StickyNavels. His email address is listed publicly on his profile.

 Your arguments and Tartifletes mail were pretty compelling and insightful ( as I'm a little oblivious to these things ), so as to avoid drama I'll just remove the post and imgur image.
 Lesson learned.

Go ahead! Copy it! As long as you live in Eritia, Turkmenistan or San Marino you won't be doing anything illegal.

This also isn't a discussion thread. I have informed Sabaton of the proper course of action (i.e. emailing the sprite's creator).  Though I appreciate and understand what you're trying to do.

I'll be sure to contact the original thread's author and request that we change the title to inform everyone that this is a sprite dump, not a request or discussion thread.
