We need a cannon (Uservoice suggestion)

Mod EternalDarkness  one year ago

Uservoice post

After experimenting with gun systems on my ships, and not being satisfied with results, I have decided to post a suggestion to the developers to add it as a stock part.

Systems I have tried and their shortcomings

  • Wing gun with second gun for recoil: no muzzle flash, unreliable;
  • CF gun: no recoil, range limited to around one mile, needs slow motion to register a hit;
  • Boom25 gun: no nozzle flash, high part count (two parts per shot);
  • Boom25 gun with nozzle flash: ureliable, huge part count (3-4 parts per shot).

Suggestion for the gun

  • Design:
    The gun should be simple, like all parts on SimplePlanes. It should have a clean barrel, so that it doesn't interfere with custom details.

  • Function:
    The gun should fire slugs at ballistic trajectory (spawns at the tip of the barrel, with V = 800m/s). There should be a simple muzzle flash, and animation of barrel moving a bit backwards (recoil).

    @BogdanX optimally, we would be able to xml edit that.

    @MIWTheGamer but that cannon won't have a realistic delay between shoots or "boom" sound

    I can make a cannon that has a belt system, has recoil and does damage, I can't figure out a name for the type, but it's a bit complicated, and one wrong placement of it could mess it up....

    Actually I managed to make a Recoil system for CF gun but my gun doesn't do any damage

    A smoke particle effect would also be very nice

    @doge they need a lock-on or limit ammo to three shots (I need my activation groups). Also, they leave a smoke trail and have no muzzle flash, recoil, or a gun sound.

    great suggestion! i think we should have a series of cannons, from 20mm to 155mm, and possibly 300mm in the future.

    They should be like fuselages in which we can edit them.

    @EternalDarkness ok.

    @Botfinder we probably won't get anything fancy there. Devs are focusing on SR2, which is supposed to bring money, and thus keep Jundroo alive. Then they'll have to fix bugs on SR2. So, a simple gun is the best we can hope for.

    @Ihavenorealideawhatiamdoing woops, I missed that. I never say "nozzle flash", except three times in a row today XD

    @ShatSlanger I'm trying to make the concept so that devs can make it "on a lunch break". Of course, it's still not really that simple, but still... Whichever is easier to make works for me.

    Don't forget the gun sound and the types of munitions.
