So, while you guys are all fiddleing around with your nukes and antimatrer bombs, I will load up my cruisers 15 90mm cannons, all the missile tubes, and shout on the intercom, FIRE ALL WEAPONS! And the fall of the dreadnought. Simple is best, I think. Its easier to just blast a hole in a ship, then use 3 or 4 dropships filled with troops armed with high ROF guns and tons of ammo, and just have them clear the ship, then blast it. All while the antimatter launce codes and authentication keys are being activated. I think everybody is just overthinking things...

Auth codes won't exist. Your cruiser would be annihilated far, far out of its' own range. The end.

On another note, we now have 1000 posts!

Or you could just skip the cruser part and have about 100 robot piloted fighters to swarm any large ship.

Because of computing limitations, or because of how stupid the idea is?

Programming, mostly. We are not making a AAA game, nor am I a AAA game designer, so we have limitations in what we can do. In this case it will mostly be netcode related. Would be fun, but it impractical.

Fun is a subjective term. Smile While it might be fun for you, It would be comparable to trying to fight off a hive of bees with a rifle for me. XD

What about a laser machine gun that can be placed down, and has a high ROF and uses a battery or solar generator for ammo creation?

I have an idea!

In Halo Reach, after Reach was glassed, some Spartans took a hijacked Covenant gunship, loaded it with a subspace (you know, that place where ZPMs get energy from?) bomb, and detonated it aboard a large Covenant ship. I think a subspace bomb would be a good idea. Just think; you managed to make a frigate that looks exactly like one of the enemy's frigates, and loaded it with salvaged enemy equipment to make it seem authentic. Then you managed to start flying alongside the enemy ship(s) (or maybe into the hangar), set a delay timer, leave in an escapepod, and watch as the enemy ship has a large chunk taken out of it by a large subspacey orb of pure energy. And make it EXTREMELY hard to build, like maybe 5-6 ZPMs, some sort of delay timer, and other rare materials.

Have you guys discussed manned Gun Stations?. Say you have crew of four in SMP. While you fly the ship your crew can get on the GS and fire at the enemy.
Im not a coder, but would it be easy to create seats so that once you sit down, the view goes into first person of the gun station. Couldnt you make Gun station minecraft character that has the form of a gun station attach to the ship. The only controls as the character gun station would be to look and fire.

Easy as pi. I could do a bad job using a boat and sdks gun mod, and I don't even know much of java at all.
However, what would be harder is autofiring turrets. You know, have them still lead a bit without being to OP. That could be a challenge. Humans should be better than AIs at firing. And maybe craftable better AIs to make guns more accurate? Also could be used for drones.

I'm referring to manned not unmanned, i could see issues with unmanned. What they could do is make all unmanned turrents point foward, like a fixed weapons and just point and shot when flyign your ship.
