    I thought i heard of a mod that allows you to change how the ai controls turrets when firing at enemies.

    i want to be able to salvage more than just iron plating and scrap.

    Does anyone know what the mod might be?

    Thanks

    Smart Turrets is the one I know of off the top of my head. Thou it seems that the latest patch may have broken something with the mod.

    Just shuck-and-jive on in there with you trusty ‘ole hand grinder and disable the point defenses manually. That’s what I do.

    I hope they do something about that. I mean, come on. A determined player with a hand grinder is often more devastating to a player or NPC than a ship full of turrets. How about energized armor where you die if you try to grind. IDK, but I have taken down some pretty decent ships with a hand grinder or by just dogging it til it ran out of ammo. The introduction of sensor controlled thrusters adds a little evasive intelligence but not enough.

    But it’s not so different than the Star Wars scenario with the rebel forces sending in fighters to disable the Death Star...small, randomly moving targets are hard to hit. It’s a reality. However, the addition of “knockback” (getting hit by enemy rounds) makes the process much more challenging. It used to be much, much easier to disable enemy ships and stations. I like it now...harder, but not impossible.

    I just built a new SPRT planetary station (SPRT remote drone assembly facility) with four spawning antennas and a plurality of point defense systems. It’s much harder to take, but certainly not impossible if you’re Forrest Gumption. But, then, hey, there is the warhead boobie trap that awaits. It’s the most fun you can have with your clothes on!
