Sorry about the delayed response, i am still looking into it (and trying to find a solution)
I do know i have seen beams go under turrets on the vanilla ships - again, once i get some info together i will post my findings below
So i have conducted a few experiments and here are the results:
In Exhibit A we see the beam from the firing turret A go under the turret B in front.
This is due to the order of the turrets in the ships code:
1 = 172.00,142.00,TURRET, <-- Turret A (which is firing)
2 = 168.00,102.00,TURRET, <-- Turret B
In Exhibit B we now see the beam from the firing turret A go over the turret B in front.
This is because we have now swapped the order of the turrets in the ships code:
1 = 168.00,102.00,TURRET, <-- Turret B
2 = 172.00,142.00,TURRET, <-- Turret A (which is firing)
In Exhibit C no matter how i changed the sub turret configuration, the beam will aways go under the turrets in the same group.
1 = 147.00,64.00,TURRET,(145.00-29.00),(151.00-53.00),
1 = 147.00,64.00,TURRET,(151.00-53.00),(145.00-29.00),
Findings.To avoid a situation like you see in Exhibit A i would suggest that you place your turrets starting at the bow and ending at the stern, that way the further “down” the ship you go the higher the number and you end up with the graphics looking like Exhibit B
Hope this helps
So nemesis - in your picture i wouls say that the turret that is firing has a lower number than the 2 turrets that are on the front of the ship. If you change the turret order, it should fix the problem
