Description
Mod Panels lets mod creators add simple 512x512 graphics to the ready room to explain the mods that are running. No need to modify any maps, this works on anything with a ready room.

Special thanks to Brute for the help with meshes!

Want to see the mod in action? Check out Nin's Mod Box in the Arcade Tab.

It's easy to add support for Mod Panels to any mod!
* First, copy the test.material to your own source/materialsrc folder (it's important it's actually be in source/materialsrc for the Builder process) and call it something unique, like new_test.material.
* Create new *.tga and *_opacity.tga files (again, important they end in those extensions for the Builder process)
* Precache your new *.material file like so
local myMaterial = PrecacheAsset("materials/mymod/new_test.material")
* While your mod is loading, call "if AddModPanel then AddModPanel(myMaterial) end" from almost anywhere (Globals.lua okay to hook)

You may also supply a second argument to AddModPanel() in the form of a string (url). If the user presses E while looking at that panel, a web browser will open to that URL.

I have now removed the info panel that comes with this mod! I'll look into the docking issue.
