Turret Factory

From Avorion Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In a turret factory you can produce turrets. The resource type of the turret depends on the position in the galaxy. For example a xanion mining turret can only be produced in an area which is naturally filled with Xanion. Every Turret produced at a turret factory also has different traits. Turret factories randomly produce turrets with random traits such as Burst Fire. These will be displayed prior to creation. Some turret factories produce turrets with the Burst Fire trait, some won't. Independent targeting trait can be added by expending Targeting Systems. This, however, will put a 50% damage penalty on the turret (unless a mod that disables this penalty is installed).

Turret properties such as DPS (damage per second), damage type and range are random. However, DPS also greatly depends on distance from the centre of galaxy (more DPS closer to the centre).

Be aware that the the requirements of goods will scale with rarity. The values listed below are for base rarity.

Turret Factory Tech Level[edit | edit source]

Turret factories have a tech level that is in a linear relation to the radial distance. It can be approximated using this linear function:

TECH LEVEL = -0,104 * Radial Distance + 51,84

The tech level needs to be rounded accordingly to match the in-game tech level. The values have been obtained empirically.

In conclusion: The closer to the core you are the higher the tech level of the turret factory with the highest level being 52.

Building a Turret Factory[edit | edit source]

There are several reasons to build a turret factory. Manufacturing turrets in your own factory costs about 20% less credits compared to an NPC factory. Furthermore, it is possible to build a turret factory very close to the center of the galaxy and achieve the highest turret factory tech level of 52 starting at a radial coordinate of 3. Lastly, it is possible to put goods, which the factory trades, in it's cargo bay. NPC traders will then visit it and buy the goods for very high prices. This is somewhat profitable, but cannot be automated (because Turret Factories only sell goods and do not buy them).

Manufacturing turrets[edit | edit source]

Turrets will use the following goods during manufacture. They require a specific minimum quantity, and this minimum quantity is modified by a random variable quantity. The player has control over quantity during crafting, and this is often limited. Often, you may reduce the variable quantity but you may receive penalties to the final product.

When looking for a good turret to build, it is usually a good idea to visit (or even build) several turret factories. The initial turret stats (when the factory blueprint is selected) can sometimes be misleading, as for example in one factory you can get much more extra DPS (on the same turret type and rarity) per added good than in another factory. So it is advisable to check the turrets with max quantities of goods.

Blueprints[edit | edit source]

Factory-owned blueprints are unlocked as the player improves reputation with the faction. Typically turret factories deny service entirely unless standing with owner faction is at least "Good", and Exceptional-rarity blueprints are unlocked at "Excellent" standing (i.e. only turrets of "Rare" quality and below are initially available).


A turret a player owns can be deconstructed for a certain amount of credits to create a blueprint. The turret is destroyed in the process, but the blueprint allows to recreate the turret as many times as one wishes as long as a turret factory is of tech level high enough to build it.

Note that unlike regular turrets built from factory blueprints, turrets created from player-owned blueprints have fixed amount of resources. Meaning that while a factory-made turret can have investible resources, a blueprint created from this (or any other) turret is a direct copy and cannot be changed after creation.

Player-owned blueprints occupy space in turrets and systems inventory and count towards maximum limit of 1000.
