A Missile Controller is required to launch any rockets, torpedoes or mines.

Application[edit | edit source]

A single missile control block can control any number of missile launchers at the same time. They must be next to the controller, or connected via a Missile 6 Way Connector.
If AI control is desired, then a Local Weapon Controller should be placed next to the Missile controller block.

Requirements[edit | edit source]

Controller should be placed next to the Missile Launch Pad, or Missile 6 Way Connector if extension is needed.

Settings[edit | edit source]

If you face the missile controller and hit the action key (Q) then you will have access to the settings. You may then edit the firing angle either through the simple slider or complex settings and may also choose the firing group (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or all). You, as with most menus, have the ability to halt the camera's rotation with the E key while editing. It is vital that the missile controller be facing towards the front of the vehicle, and not necessarily in the direction the missiles are intended to fire, and then the Field of View should be modified from their or the settings will be interpreted incorrectly. i.e.: if the missiles are firing off to the right, the missile controller should be facing forward, and the FOV should clearly be facing the right. Note that the required accuracy setting does not affect hull-mounted missiles – you can, however, limit firing arcs to achieve the desired effect. There is an option to set the firing mode to continuous, salvo, or full salvo.

Controls[edit | edit source]

Left CTRL or MMB - Fires the weapon, when character is in a range of the weapon, or a Fire Control Computer.

Limitations[edit | edit source]

Can be placed only with its side and back faced to the Missile Launch Pad, or Missile 6 Way Connector. Different placement will not result in a connection.
