Gauss STO unlimited shoots?
« on: June 19, 2020, 08:26:55 AM »
I have a STO unit with 20 STO gauss, they only should have 3x20=60 shoots per tick, but they are happily shooting as many they need to shoot down missiles up to 600 for now.

Are the gauss STOs turreted?

I believe the gauss cannon functionality is that each cannon shoots 5 shots per 5 second increment (not 3?). So you should have 5x20=100 shots per 5 second increment. If you had quad gauss turrets you would have 4x5x20=400 shots per 5 second increment.

That still doesn't account for 600 missiles though. Do you have any ships in orbit that might also be firing? Or some other STO ground formation hidden somewhere?

Another thought... If you have high enough gauss tech (level 8 I think) it's possible your gauss cannons will be able to fire twice at an incoming missile volley, so in that situation you could have up to 2x4x5x20=800 shots in I think still a single 5 second increment. That could account for your 600 destroyed missiles.

those gauss should only have a rate of fire 3 ( 3 rounds per 5 seconds ), and shouldn't be turreted either.

There is a bug in 1.11.0 (fixed in 1.12.0) where area PD weapons can fire multiple times in the same tick.  This may be related.

That one is for area PD only though. I think this one still needs to be tested by Steve in his latest version.
