Rifled barrel

I'm not sure you really need to get quite so complicated as the post a couple up from here though, just have some method of picking twist & an ideal twist for a particular shell given by the ammo processor ( have a look at the labels in the ammo processor sometime btw ) - if you fire a shell that wants a different twist to be ideal, then take the accuracy hit.

As I said in my own thread, I'd like the rail assist accuracy pulled if this happens though, that is a rather odd idea unless the rail magnets are spinning the shell up... either that or you can have one or the other.

I'd prefer the simpler system I proposed with "rifling" determined automatically by the first shell loaded and locked to that shell's ideal rifling for the duration of that ammo load. Sure, it would give us magical self changing rifling, but it's preferable to using the atrocious UI to set up precise values. Sliders and text boxes in this game are an absolute pain to use for precise numbers and I like to avoid them whenever possible. I agree that rail assist shouldn't work with rifled barrels, but should still work with smoothebores. Also, railguns shouldn't really work with rifled barrels at all, given that all current large railguns use a saboted projectile and the excessive speed would most likely wreck the rifling.

As for the complicated information about rifling, that was to give some sensible background for the shell accuracy mechanic based off of real world physics as opposed to pulling a silly game mechanic out of thin air.
