New Turrets and Weapons!

A while ago we purchased a really nice set of turrets fromĀ 3dRT, and we’ve got them in game now as our weapons! They’ve all been fitted to work on our rotating turrets and fit nicely on our ships!

One other advantage of these models is that they all share the same single texture. This saves us texture memory and context switches within Unity. It also allows us to combine several meshes into a single mesh that uses the same material. This can significantly save on draw calls and allow us to draw an impressive number of highly detailed custom ships.

Another nice feature is that we can swap out the texture to reskin ships by their faction. The above graphics show off the “red” look, and we can adjust this highlight color. For example, here’s the same weapon with a grunge look:
