Compatible with Dark.Revenant's GraphicLib.
Use Version Checker to get noticed about any mod update.

This utility mod is pretty straightforward: it only replaces the vanilla rotary weapons' animations with (imo) smoother ones that spin-up and down progressively, and rotate faster when using Accelerated Ammo Feeder. Nothing more.

Take a look:
Modded
Vanilla

I hope Dark Revenant-senpai will notice this and include this in Starsector+ under graphical enhancement.

Eschewing obfuscatory verbosity.

Already done for his next update.

I have a preference for the Assault Chaingun myself, but the Heavy Needler comes close second.

I'm really liking the Storm Needler myself, too. Such a nice feeling of heft as it spins down!

Well if someday you ask David to take some... hum "inspiration" from this to reproduce the animation and take a look at the script, I wouldn't mind at all.  Grin

I'm a huge fan of the little dark mark on the Storm Needler that only come around once/rev. Makes it really look like a rotating cannon instead of just a repeating pattern.

For the Thumper I would like something out near the end, like on the Chaingun (also love it) - it just seems odd to have the barrels unconnected like that.

All three animations have a small marker (red for the two others) but the Storm Needler rotate much slower than the two other and is much more visible. Also all turrets versions have the barrels disconnected like vanilla, only the hardpoint versions of the Assault Chaingun and the Strorm are long enough to accommodate a ring easily.

Sadly, the SS+ version won't have the marker: with all the normal-maps and material-maps it was a bit too many sprites to add.

Actually I just use a repeating normal map pattern; the main texture still has the full animation.

The Chaingun seems to have an issue when it is placed on a turret slot, where it's barrel looks a bit like the Thumper. It looks as intended on hardpoint slots. Also, in either case it seems to have the Thumper's windup and windup sound.
