Love this mod and am finally able to field a large number of turrets but I've run into a snag. I am using Dual Cannon (Frontline), Thermal Laser (Frontline) and Rocket Turrets (Frontline). The lasers are firing as expected and are fantastic but the rockets and the Cannons are not. I have the cannons arranged in my firing line next to standard gun turrets but the cannons do not fire, am I missing something?


The Rockets DO fire but not over my walls, one rocket mount did fire but it was in a small box outpost and the mount fired behind my line at enemies on the opposite side of the outpost (not at enemies to the turret's front) who reached the wall, it killed the enemies and destroyed a large part of the wall along with them! Am I missing something on that too?



Sorry, I got it. The turrets have a facing... And also I think perhaps I am the only one to have posted here to ask for help rather than the mod discussion page. My apologies for that, I will leave this here and hope that you see it and will then delete it. Thanks again for all the great work!

Glad you figured it out. Yeah, directional turrets can be recognized by the field of fire preview. If its not a full circle, then it needs to be rotated where you want it.

Please could you update your mod please, it's not more playable with 0.17.66 (game will not start) and it's not more fun to start every new week new savegame, because of updates! There is an error in data-updates.lua on line 148 (in main chunk).

Thank you!

If you don't want unstable, 0.16 is ====> over there. You chose to play 0.17, and that means you chose to deal with instabilities -- including mods not working. Alternatively, Lua tutorials are ====> https://lmgtfy.com/?q=lua+5.2+tutorial and I'm sure they will happily take patches, if they have not already fixed it for themselves.

PS: you didn't actually include the error message. Those are pretty important when it comes to fixing bugs, and without it ... well, unless the author can reproduce it, you are gonna be short of luck.
