Ooh! You mean turrets! Razz

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think what you're asking for is, can combat drones do fancy manoeuvres when in combat so that it looks more like dogfighting?

My guess is that it's probably possible to do but it might take some work and there are a few ways to go about getting it done, for instance the manoeuvres could be part of the flight path itself, which would probably eat up some of the server resources OR an animation that the ship does when in flight (like how some ships tilt left and right while floating in space).

Either way I'd like to see it. Very Happy

Although this would be great, drones, fighters, ect are processed the same way as ships in the game. Adding more complicated maneuvers would add more lag. The only way you could change this is somehow cure lag or change the way drones and fighters work altogether. I.E They changed fighter bomber torpedoes to be more like turrets while retaining the graphics to cut down lag from them.

Bracket and zoom lag is a different issue, It's down to your computer not being powerful enough to process the volume of graphics. This is why CCP are developing a lite client, so major alliances can have lagless battles... atleast client-side.

Drone maneuvers is a server issue and can cause server-side lag. I'm not sure if you understand or not since the language barrier may be causing some problems. :P I don't think they should ignore this idea, but I don't think it can be implemented without changing how drones work or without CCP fixing lag. :P

or we could have ultra light drones that hunt other drones. i'd buy a set of those whenever i was up against gallente. your drone dogfights could be between those drones.
