    I thought it would be good to have more options with turrets, like:

    • Shoot Enemy players on - off
    • Shoot Enemy Blocks on - off
    • Shoot Unowned Blocks on - off
    • Shoot Moving Blocks Over (x) Speed 1.............x......104mps

    I don't really see the point, if a player is your enemy, why would you ever only want to shoot the player and not his owned blocks?
    Or do you mean, you want an option to only target the pilot of a ship, without doing too much damage to the ship itself?

    A good use of this would be while grinding down abandoned ships. I can't activate my turrets, or they go ape on the thing I'm trying to salvage.

    So I sit there with a well armed ship that cannot defend itself against yellow creepers coming in at ramming speed.

    Shoot enemy piloted entity or enemy player? if there is a large ship with a cockpit in middle and your guns don't shoot enemy blocks it would see the player as obscured allowing them to enter your base unharmed as the turrets could not directly target them, id say make turrets shoot at objects/any ship(block) piloted by an enemy regardless of ownership.

    I think we need UI that allows us to flag ships as 'harmless' if we have disabled them already but dont have ownership.

    This only works for things you do while online.

    I wanted it so it was a bit safer placing blocks in front of a turret and so it doesn't obliterate captured enemy/cargo ships.
