I must say, the light cannon is just really satisfying to use.

Yes I quite agree. Is there a possible way to make the bullets just as strong but not kill terrain?

When I put these things in my base (the light turrets), and when I have a second base structure across from the turret, after a while, it chews threw it (even the white vanilla bricks).

Do you also think you might be able to develop the shield part of the turret more so it plays more of a significant roll in defense?

And going on that, maybe make the "gut" of the turret more vulnerable, thus making the shield more important?

Oh, and did I mention how good this mod is?

And have you been thinking about making a medium and heavy version?

The Light Cannon Turret will probably be renamed to simply "Cannon Turret" and Light and Heavy versions made relative to it.

Those balance ideas are very interesting, and create much more of a black-and-white vulnerability system. I'll consider it.

Ha, I'm sure you were reading my mind, Soup, I drew up a sketch of a cannon similar to that a few weeks ago ^_^
Mind if I base my code of yours?

EDIT: Nvm, just realized that I created a bunch of turrets in my mod :P

Sure, why not. As long as you learn the difference between "off" and "of." 8)

Eh, how do I switch turret direction? Holding and moving does nothing.

Give me a break, I'm sick. :'(
I really like your spriting style, by the way. I would suggest adding shells to the light cannon, but they would just build up. Good job over all.

What do you mean? If you mean turning the turret left and right, it's simply done by taking control of the turret and aiming.

Ah, alright then. I thought it was only a one directional.

If I knew -how- to make a one-directional turret, I would.

You could use lua to make it always face one direction. I guess it wouldn't be a complicated code, maybe something like
Code:
function Update(self)
if self.HFlipped == true then
self.HFlipped = false
end
end


I suppose.

I've tried such codes, but the issue was that you could aim in the "restricted" direction and still fire.

In that case you could get the aim angle of the actor and change it to something like 90° or 270° when it's between 91° and 269°.
But I'm not sure if that would work, since I don't know much about how angles are measured in Cortex Command.

Asklar, anyway to manage another actors AimAngle by using the up / down controls from a separate actor?
