Manned Mobile Lab Texture Replacement

This is a texture replacement for the Manned Mobile Lab. I've replaced almost all of the textures inside and out.

Added weathering to exterior textures to make them more realistic. I.e. fading paint, sandblasted edges, dirt on the undercarriage, flaking paint, dirt on the vents and grates, etc.

The idea behind the changes is that exterior airlock doors should be marked with a bright color to indicate their importance. I've also added caution stripes around the edges of interior doors to avoid pinched fingers. Some doors would be used for rescue purposes, so I've added instructions for rescue procedures, explosive bolts and other safety items. Ramp and door edges have received the requesite NO STEP and CAUTION warnings where appropriate. There's even a bumper sticker!

I've painted the exterior lighting frames white so they are easier to work with in dark and dusty environments if the lights need to be replaced or reaimed. I've replaced the interior flourescent bulbs with LED panels as flourescents do not make sense to me. I've also added LEDs to the tail lights.

I've noticed that the colors of the vehicle are more or less saturated depending on the map, time of day, storm conditions, etc. So on Earth and the Moon maps, the red color really stands out. But on the pale blueish lighting of the polar caps, the red looks more like a rust color.

I changed the color of the interior flooring from metal to dark gray/black so as to simulate rubber flooring. I'm not very good at bump mapping so the original bump map for the interior flooring is still present, which can still be seen from certain lighting angles, but I'm working on replacing that.

The original gold wheels have been changed to a darker gray/black color inside and out but I did leave the edge of the rim coated in gold where it meets the rubber for better thermal management at that potential weak point.

Throughout history, art has only been able to survive and flourish through the generous donations of those who consume that art. I greatly appreciate your kind donations in support of my work. Your gift helps offset my immense costs such as licensed sound files, software subsciptions and most of all time and effort. Consider supporting artists like myself by Donating Now.

Saturn, it should be bottom right display on the back of the vehicle. If it's not there, then maybe it disappeared temporarily due to the game still being in development. I've seen some critical things disappear and reappear as changes are made to the game.

Thanks everyone. @spin-planet, they recently redesigned the interior. Now, if you go into Stats, there's a button for the headlights on there. This is now true across all of the vehicles as far as I can tell.
