This mod require my other mod "PredictabowlWarfare".
The objective of the mod is to cover different options and add variety to your defenses without replacing or surclassing the existing turrets.

Ver 0.1.2
- Renamed the Rocket Turret to avoid collisions with other mods

Ver 0.1.1
- Minor Bug Fixes

Ver 0.1.0
Rocket Turret
- Use rockets as ammunition, but beware on using explosive rockets because it can result in suicide, normal Rockets and Incendiary Rockets are fine.
- The range is from 2 to 25, it can't hit enemies at point blank range.
- It have 6 tiers of technology to increased the turret damage up to +120% (like the gun turret).
- It's a very powerful defensive structure that will probably do the most overall damage of all your defenses (excluding the flamethrower turret), but you'll need to feed it a constant supply of expensive ammunitions.
- Designed as the perfect defense of your main base, as is the place where you need the higher firepower and the supply of rockets will likely never run out.

Plasma Turret
- Use electricity, and consume the same amount of power as a laser turret.
- Is sturdy as a laser turret with 1000 hp.
- The range is from 4 to 25, so you'll probably need other structures for short range defense.
- It have 2 trees of 6 tiers of technology, to increse the damage and the rate of fire (like a laser turret).
- The damage per second is very low, the lowest of all defensive structures being a bit more than half of laser turret dps, but it inflict area damage whitout having to worry to self desctruct your buildings and walls, making it very valuable when hordes of enemies come at you.
- Designed to to be a defense complement for the laser turret in small temporary settlements, where will be impractical to set up an automated transport system for the ammunitions needed to operate Gun and Rocket turrets. Having a laser turret closeby to kill solitary targets will help plasma turret efficency, since it will let the plasma to kill packs of enemies insted of wasting firepower on a single one.

Notes:
I took the liberty to take some pictures from internet, if i used something that I shouldn't just notice me and i will remove it.
