I thought Assault Missiles used to be Heavy Assault Missiles, no? And they were changed recently so that "Heavy Assault Missiles" and "Heavy Missiles" wouldn't both be in the game, because they sound too similar and are confusing? Now you're undoing that recent good work, unless I'm crazy.

Surely you want to change Heavy Assault Missile Launchers -> Assault Missile Launchers instead!? Then the potential for confusion between HAMs and Heavies will stay removed.


I have only been here for a short period of time (wonder how long I can use that excuse?) so I can't comment on the previous name changes to the missiles. My objective when I came into this was simply to match missile to launchers and that could have been changing either the launcher or the missile.

As for why we changed the missile names instead of the launchers, after much discussion and back and forth about it we decided to change the missiles instead of the launchers. I know that doesn't really answer the why, but we did talk about it at length.

I will admit one of the talking points was no one wants to call them AM Drakes instead of HAM Drakes. Ham is just so tasty.

If you're gonna be working on missiles FoxThree would have been more appropriate BlinkRoll

While this may not be an official definition, I approve of it:

Quote:
"Fox 4" = facetious reference to missile shot; for example, if someone claimed to shoot a missile in an impossible situation, he might be accused of shooting a non-existent "top secret" missile requiring a "Fox 4" call. Also jokingly used when an aircraft is brought down by something other than a missile; for example, a midair collision.

Okay, I would have preferred the Assault Missile name (for both the missiles and the launchers) instead of HAM, because of the HAM/Heavy confusion possibility, but just knowing that y'all thought about it carefully is a comfort. Smile

This change to implant structure on the market is amazing, thanks.

Now, if only I hadn't dumped my Genolutions after concluding they'd never be added to the market :argh:

Thank you! I think the way you organized the implants/hardwirings is much nicer. Now I just wish the LP stores would be cleaned up a little.

Yay on renaming!

However, I saw the Auto-targeting Missiles and then immediately jumped to thinking they were going to get iterated on. Then I was slightly let down.
