Update! Two new wheels for the Old Star Sub-Branch: Heavy Iron!
(and a few block updates and fixes)
Old Star - Heavy Iron Rollers
Iron Roller Icon.png
-The Heavy Iron Rollers are not as fast as the rest of old star but their ability to deal with a load is better than the rest of them.
-With 2 extra APs on the back you can link 2 of these together better capacity .


Old Star - Heavy Iron Clearance Wheel
Clearance Wheel Icon.png
The Heavy Iron Clearance Wheel is a large SOLID wheel that raises the ground clearance of any tech that needs it.
- With high torque and abundant AP this wheel can be equipped on any tech with a decent weight as light techs will get yanked around by its power
- the Wheel itself is heavy enough to help keep some techs upright and itself if detached

(do not use the clearance wheel for mining this is only aesthetic)

why yes that is smoke
The High Noon Cab has its coding bugs fixed and had a slight nerf in its mobility by installing Eurobeat into its Drive computer while also fixing its suspension.
multiple blocks had some slight coding/cosmetic changes

Hey pachu! I am here to provide constructive criticism, as well as praise. Firstly, this corp looks absolutely gorgeous, i love the wild west theme you have going, especially the gatling gun youve got. Though...i must say, the damage it deals is incredibly underwhelming for a weapon it's size, i suggest that you significantly buff the damage, because it deals less dps than both the Hawkeye autocannon and the Venture dual autocannon. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I wish you luck in your future old star blocks :3

I just checked the description and I must say vertical aiming has to be a thing otherwise it would not be much use at all like the lance laser(which no one remebers except me because I used it in a plane once). And it even looks like it should have crazy vertical aim.

Issues with the Gatling have been noted and currently applying changes to it

So while i take the Rotary Auto Cannon for an inspection have some fun with this lad

The Old Star - Quick Draw Revolver!!
Revolver_icon.png

This lad is much more flexible than the old Rotary but also demands to have elbow room
Pros
- He shoots 8, 3 Pounder shots after a quick spin of the chambers in quick succession
- full 360 Turn radius with proper elevation
- Solid custom metal work from the blacksmith should ensure that he can take a few hits
Cons
- Dislikes being cramped
- Reload intervals might leave you open

also updated a few more blocks
mainly the wheels
- improved their grip values and carry capacity
- both Carriage wheels, Iron wheel, Heavy Rollers, and Clearance wheels

Hey again pachu! I am back to ask you a question. Why did you alter the heavy iron roller's size?

i just forgot to extend its box back to what it should be after doing testing it as its current size will no longer allow two rollers to clip into each other as the main body is actually not flat on the sides but gradually slanted.
Plus Old Star wheels have high ground clearance in mind

Hello there! I am here to provide some feedback and suggestions for this lovely corproration!
Firstly i have a problem with the heavy iron rollers. Their carry weight needs a drastic buff, along with their turning ability. But otherwise its pretty good!

The rotary autocannon buff is a step in the right direction, but it definitely needs more damage, as it still feels quite underpowered. It suffers from big bertha syndrome, too big and not enough damage to make up for the massive size.

Now on to the suggestions for new blocks!

Old Star gatling gun: a small high fire rate multi barreled machine gun. It has a short spin up time and no reloads necessary, as it is belt fed. Looks wise, look at the Brass Beast from Team Fortress 2. 3x2x2

Old Star repeater: another smaller weapon, styled like those old winchester lever action rifles. Slower fire rate and relatively high damage for its size. It is also on a 360 turret 2x1x1

Old Star coach gun: a shotgun with high damage, knockback and long range, though it has a slow reload time. 2 shot burst. And on a 360 turret. 3x2x1
