    Okay, long story short, I'm interested in knowing if the peeps here have any knowledge regarding the Caviar 3D model format. The people are the Alpha Centauri modding community are interested in finding programs able to modify the files.

    The most information I could find is <a href="http://www.jonof.id.au/forum/index.php?topic=1558.0" target="_blank">inside this forum topic</a>, but have been utterly incapable of finding any software that is actually capable of modifying the files.

    I actually poked around the files myself, and was a bit surprised to learn that they're completely uncompressed, but I don't think anyone is interested in modifying the models with a hex editor. :words:

    But yeah, long story short, you guys being the obsessive 90s peeps you are, I'm interested in seeing if anyone else has a vested interest in this technology, and better yet, would be able to direct me to any tools that are capable of opening and modifying these models.

    Nobody was interested, I take it. That, and the download link is dead.

    I've made some marginal progress on my research, mostly pertaining to finding more advanced Caviar players. Either way, the lack of interest does sort of worry me greatly.

    Below is the players that are able to open the 3D model files, and the accompanying .cvr files for the curious:

    <a href="http://www.mediafire.com/?lyf1vgcy86e6y1o" target="_blank">The player itself</a> (Which, fortunately, is a 32-bit application)
