Make turrets on airships. Like on WW2 bombers that fire at enemy planes. So your bellies aren't exposed! You can also rain death on the defenses. Until...
Flak! Be able to attach a gun on defenses that mostly shoots upwards and at enemy ships. Maybe have it to where they explode on impact? Will be so useful once Zark codes planes.
I think Flak should be similar to the Dorsal Turret, Takes quicker shots with terrible accuracy, even in Aimed mode. I'd make punting huge ships out the sky even more awesome. (Apart from when it inevitably falls directly on your shit. Screw you, Banzai AI.)
I agree with CptnObvious, but unlike Dorsal and Ventral turrets, flak turrets should be able to be placed next to each other.
The one thing I don't really like about the ventral and dorsal turrets is that they have to be at the very top or bottom of the ship due to their firing arcs and such.
Pretty much agreed on all points here. :) Flak is definitely something I want to put in. Current planned stats are something like:
That looks amazing! I can't wait for these!
This will make for some amazing ship vs Building pvp videos
Now you need fast moving small bombers! :P
Or we could have small hangers that we can install on the ship that has paper airplanes with guns flying around. Just a thought :)
