Turret Structure And Upgrades


This mod will bring you to new heights when it comes to automatic defense system. With turrets, you can concentrate having fun with your friends in your base. Open Modular Turrets also comes with a good selection of upgrades to make turrets more useful against stronger mobs.

Choosing Turrets For Your Base


The turret block is a tile entity that spawns a turret NPC on top of it. The turret NPC can be targeted by enemy NPCs and can be destroyed.

Turrets Can Damage Allies

Beware: Turrets can damage both friends and foes. If they stand in the way between the turret and a target they can get damaged and killed by it.

How To Place & Use A Turret

1Place down your Turret Base on a strategic location.
2Attach a Turret Head (weapon) directly to the Turret Base. A Turret Base has 2 Addon Slots and 1 Upgrade Slots which you can use to upgrade it. Upgrades can be extra turrets or buffs.
3Choose and equip a weapon of your choice depending on the level of your Turret Base.
4Prepare TONS of bullets! The Turrets have Inventory Expander which can be attached to the turret to increase its inventory capacity.
5Equip and feed "Addon - Redstone Reactor" so you can use Redstone to power up the turret. You can also use other mods to provide RF energy.

Turret Placement And Upgrades


If you want your turrets to last longer, you can put them on a high ground or strategical location. This increases the effectivity and survivability of the turret as there are no Turret Armor in this mod.

Defend Your Base And Make It SAFER!

Your Turret has a slot on each side, there you can add 2 Addon slots and 1 Upgrade slot making your base the safest place in your Minecraft server! Having those defenses will make sure that any threat that comes close gets destroyed.
