This is Stargate Universe game in development, this will be simulator like game, simulating life in destiny and worlds exploration.
Hm, very nice! But it looks so steampunk-ish... ;)
It is supposed to look steampunkyish, whole ship will be like that
have you never seen SGU?
I watched it, but here on this video it more noteable...
Wait...did the "turret" ever rotate in the show? For some reason, I had gotten the impression that it was more of a spinal mount that could retract into the ship (like the bridge) than an actual turret.
Regardless, I do not mean to detract from the excellent work here.
So why would it need gears at the base of it?
I'm not sure what you're asking -- I'm not sure that it had gears at the base of it in the show. E.g., see: Static2.wikia.nocookie.net
Regardless, if the dev. team for the Game wants to make it a rotating turret, I don't really see why they shouldn't, and the work shown here is excellent.
This is not a main weapon in the video, it is one of turrets (there are 2 types)
As for turret rotation, you can see in these 3 screenshots its movement:
(other type of turret that will be done soon: Dropbox.com)
Not the main...
...I stand by my statement that this is excellent work! ;D
