Information
Basic Info
The ITH (Imperial Triple Heavy) is a double TNT Cannon with adjustable arc functional in Vanilla Minecraft. The shell of the turret and gun barrels are for both aesthetic purposes in order to cover up unsightly exposed Redstone and for protection if the turret is shot at by another TNT cannon. The turret has two TNT cannons mounted side by side within it in order to double the firepower and area of effect.

The cannon was designed as further development of the Silver Empire's heavy artillery deployed on their artillery cruisers. The necessity for weapons capable of punching through the increasingly heavier composite armor of the ships of Lanier and South Haven pushed for stronger and more compact heavy artillery systems. The result of this development was the reduction of the overall bulk of the large artillery piece while retaining similar range and firepower. Instead of a traditional twin barrel mounting for the gun, a triple barrel mounting was opted for instead in order to greatly increase its destructive effects on impact with the target. The reported strength of the turret is stated to be three times the strength of the original artillery cruiser's armament. However, a ship had yet to be conceived to mount the large artillery piece.

Note: Make sure when installing the gun that you do not block any of the places a piston needs to extend into.

Nerd Stuff
The central timing mechanism for the gun is a pulse extender. How it works is that when the turret is powered by the Redstone torch tower underneath it, the propellant is dispensed. Upon powering the turret, the comparator clock is also locked preventing it from dispensing projectiles too early while a delayed signal is sent to the back of it. When the power turns off, the comparator clock is unlocked and the delayed signal stays on for a period of time turning the comparator clock on dispensing projectiles. A separate repeater train is sent to the pistons which control the arc of the gun. The pulse extender acts to determine when the piston will extend and when it will drop. The projectiles when dispensed will sit on top of the extended piston and drop when the piston retracts.

The point at which the projectiles are at while they fall as the piston retracts when the propellant explodes is what determines the arc/trajectory of the gun. The longer the pulse is given to the gun, the later the piston will drop and thus the higher the trajectory. The shorter the pulse is given to the gun, the lower the trajectory. Because the projectiles are in mid-air when the propellant explodes, the blast force from the propellant TNT is unhindered by anything and allows the gun to reach much longer ranges with less propellant than most guns that use slabs or other mounting blocks for their projectiles.

The central timing mechanism/pulse extender is outside of the gun and can be wired to multiple turrets to adjust the trajectory and fire multiple turrets at the same time with the same trajectory.

Movecraft Compatibility
The turret is compatible with the Movecraft plugin and can be mounted on airships or as a stand-alone rotating turret if you wish to use it for base defense. This gun is primarily designed for Silver Empire ships. The subcraft rotate sign in the gun allows you to rotate the turret when right-clicking it or left-clicking it if Movecraft is installed.

The color pallet of the design is inspired by that of BaccaYarro's Silver Empire weapons.

Stats



    • Max Range: 520-600m (520-600 Blocks)

    • Projectile: 30x TNT per chamber (60 Total)

    • Propellant: 22x TNT per chamber (44 Total)



Plugin Requirements ( None / Optional )

No plugins are required for the cannon to function as it is a purely Redstone device. However, the cannon can be used on Movecraft warships with their turret feature to allow it to face in different directions. Some servers that run Movecraft are ToTheEnd, Airship Pirates, and Strangelands.

Terms of Use

You may use or modify this gun on your server, builds, and/or ships but be sure to leave a diamond, credit me and link the gun if possible. Thank you!

o it might be an issue with world edit and observers

the observers are probably activating the second they're pasted in because block updates are actually occurring

I recommend pasting it in an area where explosions or TNT is denied

However I'll make a note to make a version without any TNT in the projectile dispensers so it won't explode on the initial paste in the future

thx!



you need WorldEdit or Litematica in order to load them. However I'll make a world download in the future for a bunch of cannons.
