Hey guys.

I was looking through some .tbl's, and came up with an idea. What about burst weapons? Table entries could be something like this:

$Flags: (Burst) ;Add burst to Flags.
$BurstShots: 6 ;Number of shots per burst.
$BurstFireTime: 0.2 ;Time between each shot(Burst).

This would probably be useful for a Chaingun-type weapon. :)

Burstage sounds like a very good idea.

the same stuff can be done with the "swarm" tag, we need to rewrite some ai code for it to work with turrets

didn't you do something like this for the corkscrew flag?
as I understand all we need to do is make sure the turrets are pointing the right direction when they fire, though i don't know were that is.

We've made a similar request over at the TBP forum.  Bobboau knows about it...some others do.  This would fit the bill I think....very very nicely.

yes, this is one of those things that will make many people happy (ai turrets shooting the swarm primaries properly)

the code assumes that turret swarms are heat seeking missiles

I assume that TBP wants something like this for the Thunderbolts main cannon?

Actually no, Thunderbolt's gun works fine. It would be more an annoyance if TB's gun would be burst type. No fun that way.

Burst weapons are for capital ships. Omega phalanx pods and Narn/Centauri twin-array weapons as an example.

I think the effect is very similar.  Capital ships release barrages of blasts at other capital ships instead of continuously firing.
