Feature request: Turret weapon

Post by tropicalpioneer »

I remember in Frontier there was a turret mount for weapons, on bigger and less agile ships.
I am thinking how it would make it easier to defend yourself on the Bluenose.

JohnJ did a Frontier style implementation, I might have a copy of that branch from... many years ago, or his GitHub might still have it.
Nozmajner did me a lovely model of a turret and I got as far as mounting it ingame on a ship but I couldn't get my brain around the maths for orienting and pointing... they would have been auto-turrets, i.e. You choose the target and it just shoots them without player control.
