Hello again! I'm back with another teaser for the latest addition to YRXP 3.0!


This one took quite a while to make! Easily, it's one of, if not the most complicated ship builds I've made so far. I hope you don't mind, but I feel like talking a bit about it below, so if you don't want to be spoiled, go ahead and watch the short video above first!

Spoiler
SDF Macross was always one of the primary inspirations for YRXP, and I'm quite happy that I've finally got the coding chops to give it justice! Even then, I did compromise on a few things, like folding animations for the wings, in favor of just getting something that will work!

But there were some things I *really* didn't want to compromise on, and that was the authentic Macross SFX, and the search for those sounds, in a crisp condition, took weeks! In the end, I was able to make a good enough composite of the gunpod and missile launch sound, but I really still want that authentic Valkyrie transformation sound! It's unlikely, but if anyone out there can point me to a clean sound file of that, I would be very grateful!

There are still some minor kinks that need to be worked out, like a problem with the launch offsets for the gunpod when it moves from left to right and vice versa, but I hope you can look forward to flying these Frigate-class ships in the future!

Oh, that is beautiful! I love fighting as or against your factions! It's always a spectacle! And I'll be able to upgrade to 9.5 soonish then!

Oh man, at last! This mod (together with its utility weapons companion mod) and Vayra's Sector are all that's missing from my "Mandatory Mods List"

really looking forward to some beautiful missile spam

Looking really cool, one comment is that the dreamland torpedoes look virtually identical to the Tearstorm missiles, (in terms of engine flare/trail) which is not really a great thing in gameplay terms to have something so powerful look more or less the same as something much weaker. (although this could just be placeholder trail effects in which case all is good)

2: With YRXP not having any shields (and likely no phase ships either) it brings a (slight) issue with the 0.95 skill tree, that being how you have to pick the shield/phase skill to get to the missile skill (which is blatantly going to be a high value skill on YRXP ships). Have you thought about any way to make combat 4 (shield/phase) not a wasted skill point if piloting YRXP ships?
Also this "issue" i had is now redundant, with the upcoming changes to skills, which is nice.
