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[bug fix] air pumps will recalculate buoyant volume even when turned off to stop them getting out of date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.

  • Best Anti-Torpedo Torpedoes filling. March 22, 2017
    I need anti-torpedoes for my submarine, but I need what components should i use. What kind of payload should I use? How much of it? How many propellers? What kind of seeking?
  • Distrupt vs. Reflect (Shields) March 22, 2017
    What's the difference? I've never used disrupt, but they sound like the same with reflect.
  • How in the world can I make my tanks hit things!? March 22, 2017
    I really tried to work this one out on my own, but I just can't seem to figure it out. It seems like all of my tanks (except the very rapid firing AFV I made) always fire a bit behind or below whatever they aim at. I have tried putting even crazy amounts of detection […]
  • PT Blimp 'Nomad' March 22, 2017
    * * * I made a fat blimp. It is quite cheap, but does not sacrifice HA, LAMS or shields. It is usually able to take on enemies 2x its cost and size quite happily. It is a hardy beast. Weapons: -12x multipurpose cannons -1x torpedoo Defenses: -good shields -weak ass LAMS -flare STATS: -Cost: […]
  • Ionic Revolution: From Skimmers to Hovercraft March 21, 2017
    Ionic Revolution will be getting a major change to divert from water skimmers. Allow me to explain the reasoning. - Water skimmers, no matter how durable on the body, are generally weak due to the instability of losing just one section of hydrofoils. This is the nature of the craft and doesn't fully conform to […]
  • As someone aspiring to get into the game industry. March 21, 2017
    Don't we all? AAAAAAHHH C'mere buddy!!! ehm,, anyways, enough talk-writing. I was born in the 90´s and aspire to become a game designer(or at least involved in making games either with small or big teams). Now before you go on about how it's pretty silly to mention that like some 7 year old hitting on […]

  • Disrupt shield on submarine March 21, 2017
    Is there any point in using disrupt shield on submarine that travels on -100m? It's safe against shells but not torpedoes, but my question is: is it worth using in such way as I used? Strength is 4.0
  • How do IR seekers work? March 21, 2017
    So, I wanted to make my spaceship invisible to ir seeking missiles, but I can't, they somehow still see it, even though I have steam engines, it only uses ion thrusters and it is at about 2000 meters from the enemy, how do they still see me?   IR.png (Size: 2.08 MB / Downloads: 10) The […]
  • The power problem March 21, 2017
    I've been trying to figure out exactly how to power different designs. The discussion is all over the place, and I'm not sure what the most current understanding is. Maybe we can consolidate that discussion here... Steam engines are a right-out sucker punch to fuel engines based on what some people are figuring out, but […]
