Andorian Escort Weapon Hardpoints
 
@Cryptic:

I would like to make a request that if the wing cannons are not equipped, the DHCs fire from the wing cannon hard-points. If you want to fly this ship with all DHCs, it look silly, because the giant guns on the wings never fire.

I noticed that also, I thought the 5th slot would always fire from the wings but alas that is not true does look pretty silly.

I'm surprised the DHC hardpoint isn't at the joint on the wing. Looks kind of silly. if you don't use the Wing Cannons (Which look awesome)

same idea here, approved :cool:

Any other /signatures for this idea? It would really make the whole andorian escort experience a lot better. It couldn't be that hard to program right?!

I like the idea, just shift all Fore-facing weapons to fire from the wing cannons

luk3gittins 09-29-2013 05:42 PM

+1 i like this idear

dave18193 09-30-2013 01:44 PM

+1 to this suggestion.

Dont like the wing cannons personally, so it makes my beloved charal look a little strange in combat since her biggest guns arent firing.

I know this isn't the brightest idea, but personally, I think I might leave the wing cannons on and fill out the rest of the slots with whatever I wanted to put there, and build it around those weapons. Leave the wing cannons on as an accessory. Sure, my dps may take a hit, but then again, I don't exactly know how to figure that out or how to work with it anyway. I just try to build my ships as strong as I can.

Yeesh, I wish you guys had posted earlier, most likely this thread will be closed due to the long gap in posts. Maybe I will post a new one and link to this older one.

The problems are: Aesthetically, I don't think anyone wants ANY build using DCs DHCs to have the big wing cannons graphically silent.

The item wing cannons do not come in other flavors other than [dmg]x4, which I could deal with if it weren't for:

The blue phasers don't come in [CrtD]x3!

So, an easy solution to these problems that doesn't involve all the balance issues of changing stats is to simply make DHCs fire from the graphical wing cannon hardpoints when no item wing cannons are equipped. Easy Peasy! Right?!
