The only way currently involves PDCs, which are basically ground based ships. (With extra armour)

These are designed identically to ships, through the ship design screen. (There's a drop down at the top that allows you to switch whether the design is a ship or a PDC)

The cannot have engines, nor jumpdrives, have 4 layers of 'free' armour, do not apply maintenance rules, and due to their specific circumstances they also do not require deployment time. (They're always at a population so always have shore leave)


Also, atmospheres interfere with all beam weapons except for Meson. So missiles and mesons are basically your only options for functional weaponry for PDCs on habitable worlds.

can you take screenshots of your design of how you created the particle lance and the weapons you created? Pls
that would be cool

They are just renamed standard weapons; Defence Turrets are Gauss turrets, Bombardment Cannon and Nova Cannon are large lasers, Torpedoes are missile launchers, the Particle Lance is a new form of Particle Torpedo available in C# Aurora and Weapon batteries are railguns.
