Summary0003180: Protect ship - Turret threats: Laser protect ship also causes it to be protected from beams, turrets still track.
DescriptionSetting a ship to be laser protected from turrets causes beam turrets (at least confirmed on multi part turrets) to also not fire on the target. They do still track the target, but never fire.
When the target is beam protected, the turrets do no track.
TagsNo tags attached.

Is this beam weapon perchance defined in a "#Primary Weapons" block (or have a "$Subtype: Primary" line)?


Spoon (reporter)

Yes, every beam in the table is under #Primary weapons. Just like the retail weapons.tbl, the #Beam Weapons block there is empty too. So if this is the cause, then it affects probably every mod and retail too. I've never used $Subtype: anywhere myself.


Goober5000 (administrator)

Is this still an issue? I looked at the x-protect flags at one point recently and they all appear to be working properly.


Goober5000 (administrator)

In the process of fixing this. The ai_fire_from_turret function has suffered from a lot of code rot over the years, and the multi-weapon-turret feature wasn't implemented very well.


Goober5000 (administrator)

Turns out MageKing17 identified the correct cause, but since this was never confirmed, the bug was never closed.
