I'm kinda surprised nobody's done this already.

I'd expect to see stuff like this in CE or the sM Polish Kit, but it doesn't look like it. Oh well, more concepts for me.

The crystal flak is already here, I'll get to coding and releasing the charger pretty soon.

slow actually made a proper Flak Charger in his Insurrection expansion as a exclusive weapon for one of his ships (Presumably the Lanius A/B). but dummied it out due to a glitch where it fires burst-fire style when two charges were fired.

Damn, I was afraid of something like that. Guess I'll have to come up with something else...

Clarification: weird flak behavior happens with more than one shot, regardless of the CHARGER property. Even if it's a simple two-shot flak weapon without charging or chain properties, it'll still glitch. The best you can do is define each flak burst to be only one projectile.

A mostly-assymetrical (possibly radially-symmetric) WIP enemy Zoltan ship (subject to change, especially with its room layouts), along with a working stun ion artillery. Plans changed, and it now has 4 ion stunner cannons and a stun beam, rather than 5. The above .gif purposefully shows it off, and is in no way representative of my skill level at FTL.

Ion stunner artillery (all parts combined)(WIP, and it still needs a more detailed beam animation)(the beam fires a bit later than in this image): Image

Ship hull image (WIP, and it still needs a glow and better lighting): Image

I made a generic-ish, unexciting visual of what could be made into some sort of a chain version of a hull-and-system-damaging ionized weapon if effort is put into it. Image

If anyone is interested in this preview, I can add more effort to these, playtest them more, and put them up for download. Constructive criticism is still welcome.

That certainly is an interesting artillery weapon system you have there.
