I meant you want three markers for the turrets and I would give them a radius of about 10 so you can check what's in them for turrets.

So, could we use this code you already have?

Adaptation will be EASY, but what is time-consuming is the testing, coordination and implementation...

I think there has been a misunderstanding stemming from the angle pictures where taken. There are actually four turrets around each statue. As you can see on the picture of the overall map, there are 5 levels (if we exclude the most bottom and upper ones). Every level has 4 statues and 1 control shrine (where CL are located). Every statue has 4 turrets and each critical location as 4 turrets which gives a total of 20 turrets per level, 100 all together.
When it comes to radius, I presumed that radius is equivalent to range and radius 20 is equal to range 20, thats why I will placed marker underneath every turret with radius for 20 ( the one seen in pics) because I thought it is possible to extend turret range through use of markers. Is that possible?

As far as testing goes, I was planning to test it myself, so that is sorted, now, coordination and implementation are issues. Could someone without SCAR knowledge adapt the code which you would send. If yes, then I could try at least. Maybe written instructions on your part could help me out and I could do the manual work.

Radius is just used for scar to detect proximity of stuff by if it's in the marker or not. You can apply a modifier to make weapons range change, but you would need either a new weapon or you always spawn a turret different to the players race - ig turrets for marines etc.

Well, this is a job of the coder, so that to fix whatever may be "off", on the spot :grad:

No way!! You will be throwing yourself against a totally new world, .... Unfathomable the odds to survive... :p

 

 

It seems it is me or Fuggles the ones to do it. You can also ask brother Kasrkin, if he is not busy at the time he may be the guy!.

So, if I understood you correctly, Im stuck with range of vanilla HB turrets? If so, thanks for the clarification Fuggles. So in esence, markers I would place under each turret could be used to detect enemies and spawn the turret itself?

Right, so I guess nothing to do now but go back to my next map project :) while you get some time to give this attention. And thank you brother, I don't really like unfathomable odds of survival :D 
I will talk with Kasrkin, ask him to follow the thread if nothing else.

No I think you can increase the range, but you will need to spawn a turret different to that player's race and apply modifiers.

Right, well thats the thing, map, aesthetically, works only with SM turrets, so I will have to go with range SM turrets have. Do you maybe know what their actually range is?

That will cause you problems with sm players, unless you make it a mod.
Not sure on range, no point guessing, someone else will be able to fire up corsix

Fuggles, sorry for the late response, the Kill Team thread has preoccupied me in the last couple of days. 
I understand that setting all turrets to be SM will cause issues with SM players, but I guess there is no way around that without complicating map more than necessary. I will give out warning to the SM players in the Read me text that will go along with the map. They will just have to go with it. 
I will mess with Corsix to try and find this data.

Not really, just spawn a different type than the capturing race uses.

You could get around the Space Marine problem by making it so that the Unification mod is required, and then use the special turrets Gambit has created for the survival mode that have no build limit.

 

The other issue though is that Space Marine players can upgrade to missile turrets once they have upgraded their HQ - other races would have to make do with the basic heavy bolters.

Can't the marine turrets be ported and made for the npc_race?

Essentially if he wants to avoid it being a mod then no. It just needs a different ebps name than that of the player's race.
