There will hopefully be more cannons in OC soon, but they need graphics. If you would like to contribute you will see your work immediately in OC as the scripting is already done!

The current idea is described and discussed here. There you can also download scenarios to test the new types of cannons.

Discussion of the graphics can be done in this thread.

Maybe something like that?

Yes, that looks nice. I would prefer a frame where the cannon is mounted in the middle though, so that I don't need turn animations and scripts for other nasty stuff.

I created a rough sketch of how I would imagine a lightning cannon.
Or did you want something that looks more like a tesla coil?

Looks good! I would like to use the Diamond as a component. So that could fit in your design where the three rods of the dish come together.

The gun is not needed by any scenario yet. And since I lost that discussion and we have diamonds we might as well use them for complex objects like the tesla gun.

I added diamonds to the Horrid Highway round for this purpose.

Imo, the diamond is a very bad resource in the sense of a part in a planned economy. However, that was also never the reason why I liked the diamond. The diamond was solely intended as a variable reward for exploration (in a B.F. Skinner sense) - where we are still lacking more! A lot more!

If a scenario requires diamonds for production, it should either make them visible from the start or at least fix their position and provide the user with hints (e.g. signs) - and have e.g. animals defend them

> where we are still lacking more! A lot more!

We also lack any kind of hands-on reward after discovering a diamond. Being able to sell it for money is not very thrilling. But what if you get a cool and exceptional item?!

I agree that any scenario based upon such an item (like Horrid Highway?) should make finding diamonds more obvious.

>But what if you get a cool and exceptional item?!

Yeah, nothing against that. We need a lot more (minor) variations of existing items (e.g. better helmets, better arrows, better swords, blah) - but all those would be stuff that you don't need to finish a scenario - unlike the cannons in Horrid Highway

Hey, we did Horrid Highway without the cannon before ;)

As you're destroying most of the landscape there for resources anyways, you'll find all the diamonds sooner or later in any case.

PS (important PS, thus new post):
"High tier" items should be items that you reach later in the game. E.g. because they require some sort of production chain that takes time to set up, etc. The diamond is very unsuitable for this, because it is very possible that the player finds one in the first two minutes of the game

I put the model in the Milestone Dropbox.
