    In light of how popular the engine porn thread got, I just thought "why not make the same thing for turrets?". So here it is: THE TURRET PORN THREAD.

    Let's get this show on the road.

    It is when you see the wedging on that turret kep, that you realize how large this thing actually is. Do you have more or less finalized stats for it to share?

    My largest operational turret at the moment is just ~40x40 wide. I still like it, it makes a good long range sniper turret with two different 100% beam support cannon groups (one very large with ion, and a small with punch-through to deal both block and shield damage in one seemingly coherent projectile).



    There is also a ~20x20 rapidfire version, and a small point defense one.

    That is, hands down, one of the best turrets I've seen so far. I could actually see something like this being used on some futuristic terran ship irl.

    I am, honestly, not surprised NuclearFun has found a thread named "turret porn". Master of turrets, you! Especially the vertical launch missile ones, I have never built a forward-firing missile turret ever again after witnessing how they not only evade PD better but also look stunning when launched.

    I am right there with you! Here are my vertical launch missile turrets.

    Nice swiss flag you have there. Where are you from?
    I'm American but I really liked how the Swiss flag looked on that particular ship.

    Nice turret, I haven't heard of the new docking feature though. How did you build your turret to rotate like that?

    You can build turrets this way with the new blocks there already is in the dev build. This is the incoming feature and it's already playable except some few bugs.
    Each entity can rotate 360° in a single axis (collisions are working so the barrel cannot turn if something is obstructing it). So depending on how you build your turret you have more or less angle. Turrets doesn't clip throught mother entity anymore
