Cannon ideas... Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

What about chainballs? They'd do more damage (Or, maybe have a chance of doing more damage, or do a random amount of additional damage), but would cost probably a little more than twice as much (and might be harder to load somehow?)

Also, large ships should be able to fire more canons. Sure, I can load 18 canons (I think?) on a war brig, but I can still only fire one a turn, right? It'd make sense that a war brig (something tht size) has a second cannonball slot in the battlenav screen - could be right below the first. Even larger ships should have more - they have more canons available to fire from than a smaller ship, so they in theory should be able to inflict more canon damage - at a cost of more balls being used, of course.
