    It doesn't really make the mod look bad at all really, just all that's missing is some kind of blue bubble around the turret which can act as a 'shield'. If it's not going to change, the best way to deal with it is improve the knowledge of its existance.

    I don't see how the turret having a hitbox which looks as though it came out of a game made ten years ago can do anything other than make the mod look bad.

    So the fact that you can't snipe through the turret hitbox is the defining feature which will force reviewers to give Empires a good or bad score. I doubt it will even be mentioned.

    I'm not arguing over the fact that something needs to be changed, or made clearer, just that the impact of the reputation of the mod is negligible.

    Any flaw is a major flaw, because flaws are what people remember. And if a flaw is obvious, and occurs a lot, people will remember it a lot.

    For example, if you are up against a wall in CS and you try knifing someone, you will hit the wall and not them, at the same time giving yourself away.

    This is a flaw, but it will not make me want to quit. It is easy to get around and easy to use for anyone. It's not like some l337 jumping spot that only can be gotten to if you are awesome, or know a trick. I think this is a low priority, and maybe will be fixed if they ever decide to redo the turret models.

    sniper rifles get removed soon. can we get accurate turret hitboxes now? (no need to make the hitbox more complex, just a bit lower)

    Its been fixed for shooting people behind turrets apparently, but now it seems it is super easy to get tanks (especially BE meds) stuck on turrets.
