What if you wanted to have 2 different types of turrets on your ship so it fits different purposes?
Here is what i propose.
Have 2 weapon slots.
Suppose you are in an Interceptor. Have an RF Blaster in one and a Shrapnel Cannon in the other. You can’t use both at once because targeting would get messed up so press CTRL to switch between weapons.
Suppose you are in a Fighter. You have four weapon turrets. 2 of each for each weapon type.
Suppose you are in a LRF you have six weapon turrets. 3 of each for each weapon type.
You are able to switch between weapons for a certain purpose maybe like use a laser against a slow moving frigate or use a kinetic weapon against a ship with no shields. The only draw back is you can’t employ all weapon turrets at the same time.
Tell me what you think.
