Billboarder is a simple, universal mod that makes missiles and some other effects-related Actors have XY billboarding. This is useful if you only want projectiles and effects to be XY billboarded, and not everything else in the world (monsters tend to look weird with globally forced XY billboarding, plus they gitch on 3D floors anyway).

I use this personally, figured some people might be interested, so here it is.

Suggestions and improvements welcome.

I like the idea.
I've quickly tested and the only weird thing I've found is when shooting with the RL all the way up to the zenith, the sprite missile sometimes shows the frontal view. Also, when shooting looking up while strafing, the missile almost instantly changes to the lateral view.
