Deployables
« on: June 07, 2014, 01:03:38 pm »
I am really liking the concept of the deployable weapons such as mines, although in practice I haven't yet found them terribly useful.  Is there any plan to have turret deployables?  When playing as a miner, it would be nice to be able to deploy some kind of automated defense turret(s) nearby.

Some additional thoughts about mines:

1) It might be nice to have some kind of mine that will move towards any target that wanders too close.
2) Having mines that emit some kind of pulse that drains shields or energy (or depletes shields or energy when they detonate), would be pretty slick.
3) Having some kind of mines that can be detonated manually.

I am really digging the latest update of VE!

Update: whoops I should have put this in the Suggestions board.  Perhaps a mod could move it over for me :)

We actually plan to implement drones later. But your idea of deployable mines is also cool. I think it would be possible to make both using the same system.

As for homing mines - yes, it is planned.
