The solution is fix the code so that the turret checks for friendly obstructions before shooting.
I agree, but isn't there some kind of movement restriction for model turrets so they can't shoot, like say, down into the ship they are sitting on? Or some kind of angle restriction for beam weapons that tell them they can only fire like forward and maybe a maximum of 45% up, down, left or right?
And while this is the first time I meet one of the First Ones here
, don't you think Zathras should correct canonical issues like the Drazi or Nials firing wrong beam colors? Especially when this is really easy to correct? The game is called The Babylon Project after all for a reason, isn't it
