Since I got my new rig set up and everything configured again for FS2, I got back to JAD and figured out what was going on in Neon Genesis Volition
Previously, I wasn't able to complete the mission because:
When attacking Crunchr Team, the bridge subsystem must be destroyed to allow for directive progression. On previous attempts, I just took the time to Progressive Chainsaw them to death which are not considered mission kills.
It could be my fault for using such brutish tactics, but I figured out how to continue progressing and reached the end. Absolutely incredible way to end JAD, absolutely incredible mod from beginning to end, and thanks for the shout-out! <3
