1.861 now live!

Really pleased to announce the Advanced Projectile System is coming to stable branch for the first time. It features a new type of cannon that fires customisable ammunition (customisable in the same way as the missiles already are) and all sorts of neat features like ammunition clips, belt autoloaders, multiple barrels and rail guns. The ammunition can have all sorts of payloads (explosive, frag, emp, kinetic), fuses (altitude, proximity, timed, penetration, inertial), heads (squash head, shaped charge, sabot, AP capped) and auxiliary components (base bleeders, fins).

The custom cannons are not going to be removed.

[feature group] Advanced Projectile System released

[feature] New wood textures added

[bug fix] When a propulsion unit is placed on a spinner or turret only ‘main’ mode can be selected from the GUI now
[bug fix] air pumps will recalculate buoyant volume even when turned off to stop them getting out of date
[bug fix] dedicated hel spinners use their ‘drive fraction’ variable now
[bug fix] Desired gauge now reflects actual shell diameter for multibarrel systems- not the single barrel equivalent
[bug fix] hydrofoil force calculation was incorrect (using degrees as input to a function requiring radians)

 

Several other bug fixes have also been added.

  • Destroyer - "Frost" December 16, 2018
    This destroyer is the culmination of all that I have learned over the past few months. Which may not actually be much, but still... The Frost costs about 50k and goes around 20m/s. It has active stabilization and floats via downwards-facing propellers.  It has 2 turrets of double-barreled APS 174mm ~30 rounds/minute timed fuse frag shells. […]

  • Support Helicopter : Ultair December 15, 2018
    Hello people ! Today I present you my second craft ! The Ultair !  The Ultair is a support helicopter that can be used early game and against factions that uses very few missiles (more on that later) , it is very cheap so very disposable (23k ressources) but VERY fragile (again , more on […]
  • Trying to do an airship December 14, 2018
    Heyya, I'm trying to make a cheap airship for my campaign, but for some reason it keeps trying to fly upside down the whole time and I don't know what the problem is. At first it just wanted to pitch down all the time so I put some rotorblades to try and counteract that but.. […]
  • Good Base Location December 14, 2018
    I'm starting a new campaign, where I'm going to be RPing a Steel Striders captain who defected and struck out on his own. I need a good location for a main base, which has a good harbor that can fit a couple of battleships, an aircraft carrier and a few smaller ships. I'd also like […]
  • Ship Build December 11, 2018
    Calling all skilled shipbuilders! I am looking for somebody to build me a WW2-era battleship. CAS Sea Wolf, as she'll be called, is essentially a modernized version of the L 20e α class battleship. She is to be 240m long, 35m wide, and have a draught of 11m. She is to have a top speed of […]

  • Campaign - Obtaining Materials December 11, 2018
    One of my biggest goals in the campaigns is to obtain as much material as possible. The more material I have, the more options I have to build and I always love building my elite constructs.  As of right now, there are 3 ways of obtaining materials: * Resource Zones * Destroying Enemies  * Capturing […]
  • Frag Module December 11, 2018
    Is it just me, or is the Frag module more powerful than everything else, by a factor of 5. I normally use 120-100mm shells in 400-800rpm guns. The frag module seems to be the only module that can plow through metal armour. Heat shells don't do any damage to armoured targets since the January update […]
  • The P7A5 December 10, 2018
    After relearning how planes worked I made a big and sorta fast prop plane It can go over 30m/s, has 2 dual barreled fixed guns and two spinning guns on the wing tips. It carries 1400 of ammo, has 6000 of energy, a fuel engine generating 100 hp at .4 fuel per second.   P7A5.blueprint (Size: 111.79 KB […]
