Greetings.

Curently I have only the very basic of mounts - that is to say I have only 1/2x and 2x strictly multiplier mounts for each vehicle type.

I do plan on adding a general range and accuracy enhancing mounts, plus a number of weapon or race specific ones. Are there any interesting mounts you guys like to use from experience?

I like mounts to be simple. I hate having to go through a ton of mounts to find the best one for the weapon I am using. To many choices makes me feel like I am not getting the bang for my buck. It really gets confusing when you have Gattling mounts, X type mounts, Y type mounts, BFG mounts, and a whole host of others for one weapons. To much work.

Where we're going we won't need roads.

I'm in that same boat as well, hence the current setup. I'm thinking in general these will be options you'll have for a typical ship:

  • 1/2x or 2x multiplier mount
  • Accuracy mount
  • Range mount
  • A specialilty mount

You can do it the way i did it in Eclipse. Make weapons mounts other than the standard size enlargements require specific weapon mount tech areas. That way you can make a nice selection of mounts and leave it up to the player to decide which ones they will research. Wink

Mounts will be research in this case as well, but perhaps your right that players will only research ones that they are interested in and so the list wouldn't be so cluttered.

Here are the current general mounts in the mod:

  • Light Mount (ships, bases, platforms, sats)
  • Heavy Mount (ships, bases, platforms, sats)
  • Accuracy Mount (ships, bases, platforms, sats)
  • Range Mount (ships, bases, platforms, sats)
  • Preservative Mount (ships, bases)
  • Conservation Mount (ships)

Each of the major races will have a few speciality mounts (undecided at this time, but could be weapon or hull specific etc) and I may add 1 or 2 fighter mounts to the general list if they seem fitting.
