From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,Fighter_Ace wrote:I doubt it. Shouldn't be too hard to code. Just place a mini-turret on top of the craft and have it replicate the same X and Y coordinates as the player. I envisage rail guns, EMP missiles, and anti-missile flack being a much greater challenge. That would require a whole new script. Not to mention the whole issue of graphics and the capital needed to make such a melioration. We're talking about a need for a whole array of graphics.
And no, I don't think a turret mounted on a ship would incur any adverse changes in physical appearance. Seriously, I'm a huge fan of WWII airplanes. And let me tell you this, I don't think any of those turrets on that B-17 Flying Fortress make it at all "ugly". 13? M2 Browning .50 caliber (12.7 mm) machine guns in twin turrets, including single dorsal, fore and aft beam positions (with optional extra nose armament fitted in glazed nose). Wanna play?
And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
Six miles from earth, loosed from the dream of life,
I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.
