1. Captain Slug, how is the turret coming?

2. Could an attachment be designed for the +bow that imitates that but without the auto-advance feature?

3.On a final note, the term 'turret' is being kind of misused when referring to the construct in question. It's really more of a revolver magazine.

1. I'm working on it.

2. No. I wish people would quit asking the same question repeatedly.
3. It's not a magazine because it doesn't have a follower or spring in it. If we were using firearm terminology it would be accurately called a cylinder, but it's too late to just arbitrarily change the term used.

Sorry to annoy. I recall that you dismissed an option because without the auto-advance it would be too hard to line up the chambers and sealing the chambers to the piston and barrel was a pain. I didn't realize that was the Sledgehammer concept. :angry:

It's never too late to be arbitrary. If you start calling it a cylinder, others will follow.

I think I'm going to postpone working on the turret for now. It's just proving to be too annoying to work on.
