Modular turret specialization

Post by Iphrid »

I put this idea in the FF for combat revisit 2 but I thought it would be a nice enough idea to put it here.
I like the idea of a bigger tower defense aspect coming up for Factorio but I'm afraid the limited types of turrets might make this aspect very bland and not very interesting. My idea to remedy this is as follows:

What if the turret was made out of two parts you had to put down? A base and a turret that slots onto it?
It would open up whole line of turret specializations. Bullets, lasers, rockets, grenades, destroyer/distractor drones.. Almost everything could have its own turret you could put on the base. Turrets for single, tough units, turrets for large groups, turrets for slowing, turrets for continual damage, turrets for weakening defenses, turrets for long range units, turrets for boosting other turrets like laser painting for rocket launchers to increase rate of fire for example.

No good tower defense game has towers that all do basically the same thing.
