[Idea] Capsule Turret

Post by Umbral Reaver » Tue Dec 23, 2014 10:20 am

I don't believe this has been suggested before, but I think it would be quite interesting:

A turret that can store a stack of capsules of any type, and throws them at enemies within range, at a much lower rate of fire than conventional turrets.

Only thing(in code) i did with factorio mods was #1 Added green and red wires to cartmen's complete overhaul #2 added molten bronze recipe to the same mod(some crafting used it)(same input/outcome ratio)

I loved that idea so much that i just had to try it :D It was surprisingly simple, no control.lua needed, just some copying of things from the base game:

Is that a single turret that will throw whatever you fill it with, or a different type for each kind of throwable item?

From the linked post, a turret that takes a packaged (one might call it a magazine) form of capsule, and uses that as ammo
