Even though I love stacking mines on top of one another and it is an important strategy currently. I think the game would be better-off if it were not so easy to stack them. I suggest the hitbox for the mines gets shaped like a fairly flat pyramid. With a point at the top instead of a flat surface, mines will tend not to stack on top of one another, and by being fairly flat they won't interfere with other geometry. Mines could still lay in a close pile, but at least other people could then get a fair idea of how many mines are in that location. Plus, it would seem a bit more realistic. Pros: Realism Allows people to identify quantity Cons: 8 mines in one location would do less damage then they used to do. funny multi-mine tricks would be lessened.
