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[bug fix] air pumps will recalculate buoyant volume even when turned off to stop them getting out of date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

  • General Detection System Question(s) September 19, 2017
    I've seen Lathrix mention "tweaking" the DS for fast or slow targets and that each weapon type needs different set ups. What does that mean? And what are all the bars and crap on the system when you press Q?

  • Sparrow Multipurpose fighter September 18, 2017
    This is a cheap fighter project I made to design a simple yet somewhat effective combat aircraft. The sparrow was the result and will be used as a carrier-based fighter, torpedo bomber and escort fighter. The variant I will post is the default low altitude fighter version, although it is easily modifiable with multiple variants […]
  • Make LUA consume power/electricity September 18, 2017
    The small lua block should have a slider, as how much energy it consumes per code command. The code is slower at low power consumption, preventing lag, and quick with ineffective power consumption at the high ranges. You could also include a 3*3*3 big lua computer, which has mid-level code execution quickness, with fixed reasonable […]
  • My hovercraft doesn't respond to enemies September 18, 2017
    So I'm attempting my first hovercraft in the land designer, but my ship doesn't react when I spawn an enemy. It will shoot the weapons, but it won't move. Any one mind taking a look at the blueprint to see what's up?   Land.blueprint (Size: 53.26 KB / Downloads: 1)

  • Player weapons, new maps, and other things September 18, 2017
    I have a suggestion for a new player weapon, a sniper rifle with three customizable rounds. Each round has 6 modules using the same system as the ammo customizer for ships except you can use the rounds in a weapon held by the player. Obviously this will use the same calculations as the normal system […]
  • Jotunheim-class Battlecarrier [2.01] September 17, 2017
    Note: I am still fairly early in the campaign and not really rushing it so, all munitions are currently focused on HE or flak damage to blow the mostly wooden DWG craft apart. I have attached two blueprints of the ship, an automated version for fully toaster-controlled battles and a manual version with all auto […]

  • F-22 Raptor September 17, 2017
    "The F-22 is the world’s most dominant fighter, but potential adversaries continue to develop capabilities intended to challenge the ability of U.S. and allied air forces to gain and maintain air superiority. With that in mind, Lockheed Martin is dedicated to working with the U.S. Air Force on a robust F-22 combat enhancement program to […]
