So, with Project Erlkönig as of today being 4/4 on mission gameplay and heading for the grind of adding all the visual elements and the AI tweaks (so you don't accidentally sideswiped by a ship ten times you size), and the Rain on Ribos IV
-update waylaid by the addition of mjn.mixeal's "Waywarer"-mainhall (from issues with the dependencies -key word file limit- to actually utilizing those new points of action); I am putting Vega must burn
on the top of my list starting next week.

I am pretty sure that will just work itself out once I tackle compatibility with the 4.X MVPs, as I am pretty sure the problem is just it with loading two versions of the Mainhalls included in both mjn's knossos distribution version fo the mainhalls and FS_Port Medivps, which I don't think are needed anymore. But since I am locked with the 3.8.2 MVPs anyway due to whatever gives me eyestrain about FSO's PBR mapping, it is not issue I've tackled so far.
As the script is done, I can go straight to the the 5 missions that still need work - esspecially now since in Erlkönig
I just went and solved some items of the "technical challenges"-list - its called synergy.
One thing that already happened is that I did a little to make the PVN fighter all a bit more playable. As you probably know, the original crop of Vasudan Fighters, except for the Seth and the Anubis, have a bit of a problem when it comes to bringing all their primaries to full effect.
I added a little and simple weapons convergence to all strike craft of the Vasudans - I didn't go for dyanmic convergence, because that is reserved for the FS-era craft because there had to be some upgrades in 30+ years of service. It doesn't do a lot, but it at least at range now the Horus and the Toth will no longer the forced to choose with which side of their armaments to hit.
Next up will be adding weapons to along with change, with the as the VML-4 and the "Mako", a quick lock on and high acceleration "javelin"-type seeker missile for short range combat (which will replace the MX-50 for Vasudan craft). Full profiles on these guys once they are balanced.
