Manned turrets not shooting

Post by bird1000000 » Fri Nov 13, 2015 6:29 am

So when I am placing the manned turrets (5 in a U shape) one of two things happen (barricades contribute to this)

1) Only the outside 2 shoot

2) None of them shoot

I have lost many matches to this :lwangry:

PS: Sometimes it is working then after about 10 mins it stops and sometimes it stops working as soon as I place it.

PPS: It is not due to range because if I put a unit right in front of them they still don't shoot.

PPPS: Sometimes when I break one of them it works but when I place it again it stops working.

I've had a similar issue in the map "Village": If you make manned turret pointed towards the destroyable rocks behind a base, once the rocks are destroyed, the turret won't fire.
Perhaps something is left over when the rocks are destroyed? Issues with colliders? Don't know, but worth checking.

Hello,
Yes, we are aware of this issue. The turret positioning doesn't play a role though, they work somewhat in their own way. However, it is hard to determine what exactly causes this.
There also is a bug sometimes when turrets wont be attackable when placed under some weird angle (or either their origin is somehow beneath the ground).

No idea what caused this. Needs to be reproduced to properly find out what causes it.
If you find anything - please post here! Thanks for your research ;)
Mr. Darkness: fucking game
Sandern: yeah, game sucks
Mr. Darkness: ya, the devs must be some total twats
Mr. Darkness: Who even names a game like that
Mr. Darkness: "Lambda Wars"
Mr. Darkness: fucking pathetic
Mr. Darkness: right?
Sandern: yes

In the singleplayer map "sp_waste", when a manned turret is placed in front of the openable gate, after the gate is open the turret will not shoot.
It works as if it cannot see enemies past the gate, but the gate itself is gone.

If I put a turret in the spot the selected unit is, it will not shoot. Turrets have to be placed outside, because they can't see past that gap.
