Title: Is there a maximum number of turrets for hulls?
Post by: Ohfive30 on April 05, 2015, 03:55:46 pm
I was just wondering if there's a maximum number of turrets for a ship? the most I've seen so far is 4.

You can go as far as 5, but beyond that you start to get display issues on the hangar tab.

Thanks for the info, I can manage with 5.
I was thinking it'd be fun to make a man-o-war style ship with an array of light weapons down each side !

I'm currently creating a heavy duty mining/cargo vessel (http://i.imgur.com/49Mp4Oj.jpg (http://i.imgur.com/49Mp4Oj.jpg)) at the light cruiser level, I was thinking my next ship would be a heavy cruiser version with more turrets, if more thank 5 causes UI issues, I'll just bump the tier of them up a bit (the light cruiser will most likely have all tier I weapons, i'll see what it's like during testing)

That looks pretty badass, especially from the front. :D

I had a similar idea about a plethora of light weapons, but no luck   :-\

Wow, that looks amazing indeed.

Are you creating this ship from scratch?

Yep, created from scratch, the modeling's done and I've pretty much finished the uv-mapping for it too, then it's on to testing and texturing.
