Feedback and Suggestions / Ship weapon ideas
« on: December 14, 2013, 02:49:23 pm »
These are just ideas so don't freak out if you think they are the most stupid things you have ever seen.

1. Heavy whirlwind Gatling gun(medium weapon platform), Basically 2-4 whirlwind Gatling guns one 1 frame.

2. leacher rocket(light weapon platform), a very slow firing rocket that connects to a ship part(other than the hull) and does damage to it over time. To get it off your ship you would simply have to hit it with a hammer a couple of times.

3. Heavy flamethrowers(medium weapon platform), longer range flame throwers with more flame.

This next idea is WAY out there and is probably a terrible idea.
Mini airship, a very small, fast, but weak single man airship with a single light weapon controlled by the pilot. you would control it like a normal airship but you would also use the mouse to aim and fire the weapon. Pilots would still be able to use there piloting abilities by selecting it then right clicking, gunners would use there ammo types just like they normally do. This would have to be on a different weapon platform so someone doesn't outfit a galleon with four of them and do a lot of damage. once deployed you would not be able to repair it or get off until you move back to the launching pad on your ship. If it dies anyone with a engineer tool would be able to re-build the mini airship and the pilot of the mini airship would wait a few seconds before they re spawn on the ship. It would be a very slow re-build on account for how useful and powerful it would be.

I haven't played Guns Of Icarus Online for very long but one thing i have noticed is your see many different weapons on the ships but one you almost never see is the Javelin Light Harpoon gun. Honestly i have a feeling this is cause it is next to useless. There are so many other guns that are much better that people use. Yes it does lots of hull damage and can pull ships towards you but it does not do crazy amounts of hull damage and the pull does not do a whole lot. What i am suggesting(there are probably better ideas) is to make it so when the javelin hooks onto another ship you can then send small explosives down the rope that do damage. You would be able to get 1-5(mabey) total mines that you can send down it then the rope would break and you have to re-hook them. This would make the javelin Light harpoon guns so much more useful cause you would have a way you could get some sure hit shots. If you can hit the ship with the harpoon. If this is added i would even decrease its accuracy a bit since it would be a easy way to do a bunch of damage.
This is just a idea and I belive there are some that love the Javelin light harpoon gun but many others may agree with me, just please don't start raging at me.
