This mod extends the Turret and Weapon generators to add a new Gatling-Railgun Weapon to the game.


  • weapontype.lua A new WeaponType GatlingRailGun has to be added so that the Turret and Weapon generators can be extended for that type.
  • turretgenerator.lua is extended to add a new generator function for the new turret type and some specifics about that turret.
  • weapongenerator.lua is extended to add a new generator function for the new weapon type, which builds on the existing Railgun generation function
  • In galaxy.lua the drop probability for the new weapon is added and set to a weight of 1, so that the turret will be generated in loot drops


  • serverSideOnly = false This mod would be server-only, if it wasn't for some localization files that have to be present on the client to translate.
  • clientSideOnly = false The mod cannot be client side only, since weaponry has to be generated on the server.
  • saveGameAltering = false The mod doesn't add any new scripts or assets to the game, so it doesn't alter save games in a way that they might become corrupted once the mod is no longer active. It only alters some numbers in weapons, but doesn't add any actually completely new weapons.


In the data/localization/ folder you can find an example for a German localization of texts that appear in the mod.
