What is the different between these?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so, starting to learn to mod, and wondering, what is the difference between .MU files and .mbm files?  Is there a reason they are needed?

The .mu files are the KSP model files that the parttools script spits out from the Unity editor - definitely needed. The mbm files are an old texture format - dds is the preferred format now. If your making parts you can use .png for the textures and convert to dds when your done fiddling around with the textures - or leave as .png but I believe KSP will convert to dds internally slightly increasing load times.

So, if I wanted to convert mbm files to dds, what kind of program would you recommend?
