      Default New types of massdriver weapons

      Since the massdriver uses ammunition, I was wondering if it would be possible to add more types of this weapon in different sizes.

      This could be a terranien weapon type. Bigger guns should have a reduced fireing/minute, and the ammunitions should be more expensive, but therefore
      the Effect should be worse.

      The standard gun has a 30mm projectile and bigger guns should have up to 20cm projectiles.

      It is possible, but there is a limit as to how many lasers can be added into the game. We are working on some new laser possibilities.

      New mass driver? Hmm. What about old style heavy, explosive, armor piercing, shield denting (aka not through shields like mass driver, but limited ammo, like mass driver) capital class cannons? Instead of Depleted Uranium shells, Enriched Uranium mini nuke shells.
      They'd be highly expensive and take up cargo space but pack a nice anti cap burst. Basically another delivery system for the hornet explosive.
      Anyway, now I'm just daydreaming. Game's good as is.

      reminds me of the old Queen Elizabeth class battleship side guns, sandwiched between decks on each side.

      8 15" guns (4x2). 12 6" guns (12x1). 8 4" AA guns (4x2). 16 2pdr AA (2x. 2 21" Torpedo tubes (2x1 fixed).

      a lot of old school mass ammo.

      my crew were trained by space monkeys....

      only problem with adding mass driver style weapons is that they can be player-used only (unless you want people mad as hell at you for letting the comp put giant dents in their cap ships). With the limited space for new weapons atm that means the few slots we have will likely be used for something that can have wider usage

      what do you think about beam weapons like the khaak ones but for the other races?

      and torpedoes much faster and bright light?

      that would be cool
