Extra large turrets

Post by Galwail » Wed Apr 11, 2012 9:13 am

Why can't we put heavy plasma/fusion/AM cannon into those three barreled extra large turrets on war section?

Beams and drivers ... but not heavy cannons. That's like discrimination :yell:

I guess I will go cry in a corner and maybe research heavy beams :x

Drivers in them make sense because there isn't a heavy 3 shot version that fits in a standard large mount.
I think you just want a mini projector mount for the xlarge mounts... after all 3x triple shots would be about 1/3rd the output of a projector (think those fire 30 shots). :)
Would be a little overkil especially if you outfitted an LV with it.

Isn't overkill the entire point behind Leviathans?

Can you fit Chakram in them? Those would probably be pretty good.

I'd like to see a special Very Heavy only weapon in a future expansion or update. Something other than just more barrels of other weapons, not that moar dakka isn't great (cuz it iz!).
N* makes me miss my Commadore 64 and my copies of Starflight I + II :(

i think the Morrigi Grav cannon is a very heavy weapon, having only one barrel.

I just found out that the answer to this is no. Which is rather disappointing, since I got locked out of AP rounds *and* neutron beams. There really aren't very many weapons that fit these things.
