Just to give you all an update, testing is well underway and has provoked several adjustments to the mod. It'll definitely be a better experience for it, but it's going to take a little time to tie up all the loose ends it's revealed.

I'll throw in a few shinnies to hopefully tide you over.





Hang in there!

A missile nicknamed the Massacre that can target multiple fighters at once is just too awesome for words.

Well, you fail.

It's MACROSS Massacre, a reference to TVTropes. :P

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Well, you fail.

No need to be that way about it.

I rather suspect the term predates TVTropes anyway, though that's hard to prove.

Is Cobra referring to the Macross Missile Massacre? He fails the full alliteration by only mentioning two of the three words of the trope.  ;)

But yeah, Cobra is right that I wasn't reminded of this trope when I saw the Massacre tech room screenshot. I was probably distracted by the fact that Multiply (the verb form) was used instead of the grammatically more correct adverb form (Multiple). :D

Well it's supposed to be pew pew pew; and that one video (even though it was just a tech demonstration) on Discord looked pretty much like it.
