Produced completely in a digital form, both spacecraft and drop pods were a large part of the FX for MPC, centering about the arriving spacecraft dropping off the drop pods.

Adrian De Wet compositor, Stuart Penn modeler and Sule Bryan digital compositor at Framestore CFC produced the designs and models digitally along with Christoph Ammann effects technical director, while Danielle Nadal senior dataop, Ben Dishart 3D texturer, Ryan Harrington 3D artist and Paul Beilby lead CGI artist and lead technical director at Cinesite produced particle effects like dust, snow and debris.

Various
Drop Pods are only deployed from a Predator's Ship. In the film Predator as in the film Predators the Predator's Ship is of a smaller size, this smaller size also is a feature of Predator's Ships in games like AVP: Evolution in the level Predator Ship. In this level a predator escapes the damaged ship by using an escape pod which was similiar with the escape pod that featured in the film Predator. Escape Pods differ from Drop Pods as they are equipped with multiple rockets and are able to be manoeuvred in flight, drop pods only descend to the surface on set flight paths.

Both clan members spacecraft and Scarface's spacecrafts are of similiar design.
