This scene was something I played with when studying numerical methods. It uses Newton-Raphson's method to calculate the angle which the artillery should point in order to hit a specific (x,y) -coordinate within it's firing range. This way you can select a target not only by its horizontal range but also by its vertical range. This allows for precision targeting when targets vary in height. To demonstrate this, Three buildings, a couple of floating balls and a basketball hoop at the end of the map can be engaged.

The artillery does require manual reloading. I might upload a self reloading version in the future but for now this is how it is. Primary reason for this is that it's fun reloading it.

To select a target point, simply press left_mouse while holding '2' (Not numpad). The artillery should automatically set itself for a proper firing angle withing a second or two. To fire the artillery, press '1'(not numpad) and the artillery should automatically empty itself from the empty casing allowing you to put a fresh round in.

I hope you enjoy this!
