Both good examples. However I do think we should note in the latter case that continuing to shoot a weapon that has malfunctioned like that is not the smartest move, too. I was always taught that you should pop out the magazine and either find someone competent to tear down the gun, or start very carefully tearing down the gun yourself. Either way, shooty time is over.

The equivalent for muscle cylinder fluid is probably 'mop up spills very carefully before continuing to fill things'. All it takes is one spark.

This just gave me an idea, pools of MCF on a battlefield that if ignited by gunfire, start fires that hinder a frames systems, or explode for extra damage if a frame is standing in it... that'd be a pretty cool battlefield hazard to play around with tactically.

Yeah, the guy is a jerk in a lot of ways. I'm not even that experienced with guns, and that seems totally obvious. That chabber is treating it like a video game when, in fact, it's a machine that focuses explosions and is subject to material failures at several points. Like, I'd hate to see that guy with a wood joiner. Or a pencil sharpener.

That said, battlefield conditions are much worse than those controlled conditions, and under stress, people make all sorts of weird mistakes that you'd think they'd be above.

Yeah, same as gasoline or other volatile spills. Hm. Might be time for a TEM safety poster.

I love little details like this in a game! You guys have such an awesome sense of immersion and attention to detail.

Interesting... would this be represented with 1x1 rounds for drums or would it come from a frame taking structural damage (losing white dice); both? Brickforge has those nifty liquid spill pieces, though their prices are quite high.

Holy hutch. I think you just solved a design problem for me.

I feel like the little tea cup from Beauty and the Beast here.

Whatever it is he has been inspired to finish. I just love seeing more canonical stuff released.
