The description says that this turret will be helped by scout craft. Does this mean the turrets will be able to shoot beyond visual range like artillery?

In reality it means that is can shoot further than the ship itself can see, a lot further i mean. So basically to get the full firepower line of sight is important

This is a good way to enhance strategy I feel. And it's pretty easy to do if I'm not mistaken?

The 50K poly turret, it's here to shoot **** up. When I used it on the diver I reduced the count to a third just by replacing the barrels alone. Looks a little...rusty...though that's intentional, wont there be any shiny guns? I was hoping for shiny guns...

That's rather high for a turret, I remember reducing the barrel polys on the mon cal turrets for you when you asked about it, the one I sent back to you has 512 tris, so it's half, not a third.

I agree it is to high in poly for the scale at which it is being used/ more or less to late to change it.

They're cilinders, uving them takes 5 seconds and then copy paste the barrels over so you only have to uv one of them.

Warbs arrow corvette has 3800 triangles, a single turret that's used over and over again of 1050 is I think going to be a problem ingame, you haven't exported all of them yet (I assume) so it's still changable without doing a bunch of work.
Unless ofcourse you're planning to stretch the engine to its breaking point in terms of rendering, you might want reduce the polys on the barrels. I doubt even C&C 3s engine would handle these well.

No it's not an issue on my end, strobe would need to mess with the UVs thats all.

I wasn't blaming anyone ;) I UVed them already when I did the blue diver for my Re mod, no need to mess with uvs at all. I sent it to him along with the rest of the files so he should have it. It uses 2 8 sided cilinders per barrel, which halfed the poly count. Would love to be able to use the higher poly ones but damn this game hates triangles. Probably because the game is about 7 or 8 years old now.

The New Republic was still a fledgling government, stricken since its birth with war due to the the Imperial warlords, Ssi Ruuvi, Yeveetha and the countless other adventures and mishaps that plagued it since its creation. Ships were designed and built out of need and necessity. While some artists depict the New Republic ships all new and fancy, the truth is that they were made a certain way because they were economical. The 5th fleet was made to be extremely modular, so that if one ship is damaged, it can easily take parts from its sister ship (see Majestic Cruiser and Defender Carrier). We will be showing more of this modular design when we design the Hajen, the Sacheen and the Agave and Endurance.

Our universe is going for a realistic look. It will be gritty, it will be dirty, it will be hard times. It will be done this way to portray the turmoil and struggles and travesty that was dealt to the galaxy, just as the theme of the novels described.

The mon cal built rugged ships meant for survival, they were not dainty nor shiny by the least. They designed to get the job done. This is the turret of battleship, meant to take a beating, and dish out even more.

So will this turret also be the same triples on the new class ships and the Galactic class battle carrier? It looks like the same model from looking at the renders.
