    Making them upgrade when the research is done had all of those level 1s and 2s become level 3, I'm surprised nobody noticed that.

    I noticed, but I didn't think it mattered all that much. Turrets die blisteringly fast on Escort anyway.

    it does matter cause it fucks up any map with research completed. even a map with level2's restricted for engies would have level 3's throughout it

    I bet you could "unresearch" turret research for the relevant team to fix it.

    Anyone could.

    emp_sv_unresearch_item "Upgraded Turrets Lvl 2"
    emp_sv_unresearch_item "Upgraded Turrets Lvl 3"

    Into the cfg file for the map.

    It seems like "unresearch" method might be a clean way to limit a team's preplaced turrets to a uniform level on maps that start with research completed.

    However, I think this is a good example of how minor changes don't always have any measurable effect on complex things like Empires gameplay. I always found that fascinating.

    escort turrets need to be changed to some kind of model that can take 3x damage and deal it out same as current amount.
