Author Topic: Breaking the "Cannot build this close. . ." message, semi-pointless  (Read 2871 times)

Got bored and did some constructor testing, found that you could almost stack sentries, and edge them just a -bit- closer together.. it isn't a considerable difference, and might not matter at all but..

If you leap off of a ledge, or jump high enough to be out of the air be above the "Cannot build this close to another building" message and drop an autogun, you can build it a bit closer to another autogun - example:



Bad example, I know, but it was just a test. Could find a better spot to do it but meh, it gets the point across

The autoguns cannot shoot through one another but can shoot over, cover the back, etc.

Drawbacks: there are a few pixels around the sentry where your autogun will automatically explode from being too close (prevents TOTAL stacking),  Detonators/Rocketmen can destroy both with ease

Dunno. Wasn't entirely sure if this was worth posting or not, and hope this is the right forum for it.  :c1:


edit: You can probably get a rocketman or detonator to launch you in the air and do it that way without needing any elevation (totally flat surfaces and such).

I remember the days when you could stack sentries. It was the definition of OP.

Didn't know people still played on the tourney mod, but ya, stacking isn't as much as a problem since autoguns can't shoot through each other. Don't get me wrong, it's still a pain, but the main issue with turrets is lots of them, not how close you can place it to another one, so it's probably not something that needs to be fixed.

I don't think anyone plays on it unless we are testing or practicing.
