    space guns not projectile was result of sc_base_weapon entity being parented inside ship

    i recommend making lua autoparenter tool ignore sc_base_weapon entities

    very good

    actually, i've done some more stuff, and for some reason duping is breaking cruiser class autocannons/pulse cannons

    i put one on my ship, it fires fine. i parent it, it fires fine. but when i dupe it and respawn, it doesn't fire, even if i don't parent. it does, however, make noise and take cap.

    also i moved the turret body out of the ship to make sure it wasn't colliding

    (also it's not aiming at my own stuff)

    weirdly the missile launcher on the same dupe works fine

    Thanks to my massive penis, I have ID'd the problem. Turning a Cruiser Turret's base upside down, Adv Duping it, then pasting it, makes it shit the bed for some reason.

    Have a look, this is some cruiser turrets after reduping

    If you look close, the one on the left is upside down, but the bullets are coming as though it was right way up.

    (this was why my underside-mounted gun wouldn't fire - it thought it was right way up and thus the gun barrels were in the ship)
