Change Turret bases to inherit the durability of the block they are placed on.

Suggestion

Simple enough, it sucks that turret bases are incredibly weak. and we are punished for using custom cosmetic turrets.

 

Having a single low damage pulse cannon Shred all of your custom turrets off of your ship and then having to go back in and manually replace all of them sucks because turret bases have no health and just die instantly to a wet fart.

Design philosophy you could adopt:

 

Primary DPS or "Main turrets" Build it like a Barbette for  battleship guns.

 

Make sure it is in an integrity field.

 

If you are scattering super flat blocks all over your ship for many weapons that won't interfere with internal design and for Point defense, best you can do is put little defense walls around them to give them a hunkered or semi sunken appearance and thus defense. Won't stop attacks vertical to the turret though.

 

Hope this helps.

Currently Turret Base blocks seem to have as much HP as armor, though making more durable hardpoints can be done by making the base block thicker. I have almost never seen my Turret Bases (even jutting out) getting destroyed before most of the ship: only time that happen was raging against asteroids in a Nanowar 😅.
