I assume the firing angle of the turret will be limited to the side of the ship it is being mounted on? Say, a left-mounted turret can only fire at targets with a 90 degree or 120 degree cone from the centre left of the ship.

This would put a bit of a limit on the usefulness, and make sense because you cannot fire through your own ship.

Best wishes,
Oscar

Well YMMV, but why would an elite commander with zillions of credits in his safe want to make his life easier by buying an uber ship? Surely, if he is THAT good, he'd wanna trade DOWN to maintain the challenge of the game?

Try becoming elite in an Adder, that's when real respect lies.

The planet Zaonce is a Tedious place. It's a bit of a short description in the planets database. However 'tedious' actually points to the warm, dusty climate.

Damn that's looking hot!
I get the feeling my machine would really struggle to make it look like that and run smoothly though.
Although considering how cheap you can build a PC for these days.. perhaps it's about time for an upgrade.

Should be fine. My PC is very low end but System Redux OXP runs fine on mine.

The largest permanent storm system on Zaonce is hurricane Kev. Feeded by the large oceans on the planet. wind speeds are estimated to exeed 350 mph.

The hurricane looks weird, the distortion area is too well delimited. Other than that, I love it - and the watery planets really needed clouds.
You know those who, having been mugged and stabbed, fired, dog run over, house burned down, wife eloped with best friend, daughters becoming prostitutes and their countries invaded - still say that "all is well"?
I'm obviously not one of them.

Does kev stay in one place? I hope so. Would hate to go in there. but if i was flying a lander, I would not effect you much, you are going so darn fast. How long has it been up?

@FSoneblin

Kev stays more or less in the same place (like the eye of Jupiter)
Scientists don't know why this is possible because the weather changes on the rest of the planet. What they do know is that at the place 2 powerful gulf streams meet; namely the West and East stream. It's not known how long the storm system is up.

There's always one isn't there. You have a serious conversation about a hurricane and someone has to mention curry :D
