Has anybody made any undead soldiers along the line of Unitec's Subjects, but not as hard to kill?

Is cortex command's unit of angular velocity in radians per second?

It seems to me to be arbitrary. For instance, an angular velocity of 6 does not equate to a full circle per second. Perhaps it is in degrees per second.

That could be because 6 isnt exactly 2pi though. The documentation says it is, but you know Data and his scallywagery.

True, but it's pretty close (6.0 < 6.24). Shouldn't make too much of a visible difference for a few rotations.

1 Can you make a turret that can switch between 3 or more fire modes ?

2 And how many sprites does a turret need ?

Ah yes, but which standard are you using to measure a second?

Give an object an Angular Velocity of 6.28 and then have a Lua script remove that velocity 1000 sim MS after creation.

See if it's a full circle.

Ah, that might do it. I forgot about sim time vs real time.

1.Yes, if you use obscure bindings and would like to work with "virtual" bullets (read bullets that read a table entry related to the actor they're being fired by and delete themselves after placing what you actually want to be firing in their place).

2. That is pretty subjective. You could have a 2 sprite turret or a 500 sprite turret.

A turret doesn't really need a sprite to function.

Minimum is 1 sprite if you want it to be visible (technically you could do a mopixel based display but pleh), 2 if you want the gun to move. Look at the shishi turret by Darlos9D in his Darkstorm pack for an example.
