Well...the problem is accuracy, player can hardly hit the target unless they make the weapons fire automatically, so I think maybe I should totally remove manual attacking system. However, I would reserve part of the system: players can choose to select targets that in front of the camera automatically or not (all selected enemies would be attacked first). So, change to first person and open this, it would be similar with (even better than) manual attacking system.

Another problem is that the turrets rotates very slow, because the targets to shoot are all secondary, the primary target is invisible and locates at where the ship is flying to.

About the targetting system, take a look on how Battlestargalacticaonline does it, if you can make it work like it does there everything will be easier. All you would have to do is aiming.

Description

Flying and firing system upgrade! Player can make weapon fire automatically if they can, and they will shoot the target you picked out first.

In past two days I was working on an new idea about the new flying system, and I finally succeed! Now players can change the direction by not only the camera but also WASD, and ship can still fire towards the direction which the camera is looking at! This would be very useful not only for corvettes but also for frigates and capital ships in the future!
