Dynamically replaces boring auto-aim bullets with skilfully inaccurate projectiles for guns and turrets. Extends the max range of misfires alongside a magazine size increase. Let the biters experience true bullet hell. All configurable.

If you have an emotional attachment to trees and rocks, this mod will not be for you!

Features

  • Transforms magic auto-locking teleporting hitscan (default) bullets into beautiful projectiles that keep their damage and effects.
  • Increases max damage range. Allowing your turrets to hit their (un)intended targets.
  • Adds built-in inaccuracy to both direction and range. Increasing efficiency and style.
  • Increases magazine sizes
  • Piercing piercing ammo.
  • Dynamically calculated target leading
  • Extra physical damage reduction to rocks and trees.
  • Built-in mod compatibility.
  • Highly configurable.
  • Shakes up optimal defensive configurations.

Performance Impact

To be measured.

Mod Compatibility

This mod dynamically changes bullets into projectiles. This means compatibility should be relatively built-in, please let me know if you have any issues.

Projectiles in Factorio have a max range which is heavily used in this mod. This means "sniper" turrets or guns that use much higher than vanilla ranges can have their projectiles expire early. You will receive an alert if you try to build a turret that has this issue as long as it is detected correctly. Fix this by increasing the bullet range in the settings or by asking me to create a custom fix.

Companion Mods

Seems to work interestingly with either of the Rampant mods because you cannot as easily take out the scary biters if they are actively behind others.

I will publish my lighting mod soon that you can see in most of the GIFs and images. That will also go here. Lit up projectiles are not included in this one.

Author Notes

This was surprisingly difficult to make because I ran into some interesting quirks with graphical offsets. I have more features and compatibility code planned but could use more feedback first. Anything before version 1.0.0 is to be considered a beta.
