Idea for limited firing arcs


#1

Just wanted to let people know about this idea I had:

If one were to create a turret location (on a hull) that uses the feature where there is the location of the turret image (and origin of bullets/beams) and also where the turret is placed in the ship editor and also gave the turret a short range, then one could use that to create a limited firing arc. This is because the area where a turret can fire centers around the point where the turret is placed in multiplayer. This would make the turret only able to shoot a very small area. I have not yet tested this (its late), but I will tomorrow.

Sorry if this has been done before.

hmmm… it looks like a nice idea that should work! =D

The problem is that the range of the weapon would be limited by the sprite size. :confused:
