The Sidewinder Missile is an Action Block that detonates its explosive payload on impact. The Sidewinder Missile has multiple modes of operation, and can function as a straight-fire missile, a homing missile, or a dropped bomb.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Sidewinder Missile can be attached to any other block by only one of its surfaces: its side connector plate. The Sidewinder Missile detaches from its parent block when fired.
- The Sidewinder Missile has three distinct behavior modes, one of which can be selected by adding the appropriate Action tile to the Programming Window:
- Each Sidewinder Missile Behavior tile (Missile, Ballistic, and Bomb) can be clicked to set the Sidewinder Missile's explosive force with a Slider. This displays an inner red sphere and an outer white sphere. Blocks caught within the explosion's red sphere will always be destroyed; blocks caught within the white sphere may or may not be destroyed on a randomized basis.
- Each Sidewinder Missile can be assigned to a unique numbered group using the Label tile. When used together with a Missile Controller Action Block, this allows controlled firing of specific missile groups separately (for example, firing all missiles on a plane's left wing at the same time, or staggering fire from every other missile in a rack).
