It is the main gun of my Cobra Mark III. There is a Field of View setting in F2/Game Options, I increased it to maximum to see more around me. A side effect that now I see the gun also.

This is a station from 4km using max. FOV (80 degree):

The same with min. FOV (30 degree):

About 3 times larger - snipers can use it as a magnified view, I use the other for dogfight.

Side aim works well enough - especially on the large targets deserving of a proper broadside ... for dogfighting, yes, setting the accuracy high enough to avoid the penalties is useful - the bit which was removed was the old-style AI command to force side-weapon attacks on a target (because of how combat flight works it wasn't a useful or effective command - letting the AI choose which laser mount to use works better)

If you want to properly force a side-weapon attack, [wiki]OXP_Scripted_AI[/wiki] is the way to do that.

A quick fix and two more ships in v1.2:

Fer-de-Lance hold dual forward lasers in the same center position.
Staer9's Monitor Mark II has dual forward lasers.
Fixed "cannot make vector" errors.

Hello Norby,

I note the Caddie has been gifted but was wondering somewhat ( incredulously to some perhaps ) If the Dark Rainbow Variant will get the same Multiple Lasers as the Caddie...

Wonderful oxz by the way.

Will this be made available for 1.82 soon?
The act of talking b*ll*cks whilst waving one's arms about wildly is referred to as testiculation.

Sadly, it's very likely that it never will be, as the feature, that mostlikely allowed this modification (weaponport spliting and multipling), is brand new in 1.83. :(


EDIT: Maybe this helps: http://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite/nightly/
If it does, give your kindly regards to cody, as I have got the link from one of his posts. ;)

You can try it if you install the trunk version into a different folder than your main game, just be careful and save often into different files for sure. I hope the new functions bring more testers who send more reports which help to release the stable 1.84 sooner. :)

"dual forward lasers in the same center position." sounds powerful. I like the concept, that the Fer-de-Lance higher price is finally justifiable now. The Fer-de-Lance is fast, but also easy to hit and an excellent energy recharge rate doesn't compensate only two energy banks for 485kcr. But a higher laser-dps that's unerring?...That's something worthy to pay for. (Haven't tested it though. :oops: )

Re: [Release] Multiple Lasers v1.4 (for Oolite v1.83) - Buy/

Hey there Norby,

Long-time lurker coming out of the shadows. Just thought you should know that there's an issue buying/selling lasers with multiple lasers installed.

For example - if I un-mount all lasers, then buy a front laser on a Cobra Mk 3 then resell, you get 3 times the money back.

Buy/Sell/Buy/Sell for infinite money! Probably not as designed :)

Welcome in the Oolite forum!

Refund is handled in the core game, please update your trunk game due to I can not reproduce the problem at me in the 1.83.0.6660 build.

I observed that a new commander can sell the tripled Pulse Laser for 1200cr right at Lave. I think the player should decide: take the extra money or play without this bonus so I left this in.

Hi Norby and Thanks for your warm welcome!

Updated to latest trunk nightly build. My previous was about two weeks old.

Can't replicate "free 3x money by buying and selling" any more, which is a good thing :)

Thanks for your help!

Ps: Also started a new Jameson - my old one went through too many oolite versions .. so may have been corrupt.

Keep up the awesome and interesting work!
