Deployable Turrets

One issue with this addon on the previous server Splonter mentioned is that it potentially causes bugs/general issues with picking up normal props. 
Just a heads up.

Through my time of using this addon i'm yet to encounter this bug/issue with the addon.

Although I am aware of it

I just played around with it on single player. It works fine but for it to be implemented on the server we would have to rework how it allows users to pick it up or we will have ST's running up picking the turret up and possibly placing down one and having a RDM spree. The model is pretty basic and its currently a Clone Wars Era turret from a clone wars era model pack which wouldnt really fit in to the server.

If someone can find a suitable Imperial turret model i might have a go and see what i can do but for the amount of work required vs possible performance drop (just like how the gatling laser lags the server currently) vs potential benefit its not really worth it

PS the turret has to be a base + a turret top.

You can fix that issue by freezing the base of the turret using a physgun, The turret still works and you can't pick it up until its unfrozen.

Also the turret may be used in the clone wars but doesn't mean it originated from it, It easily still fits in the timeline and era.

As well as with the lag issue from my previous experiences with this on different servers with roughly the same population as IG, It hasn't affected it. It would only affect the server if you have 4+ on at once. If you feel that it would be too risky it can be restricted to EMs for events rather to regiments specifically to use.

Its not physically picking it up if you press e on the base it goes into a weapon in your inventory

The one that puts it in your inventory is the 1 time turret spawner tool. Rather if you use the Q menu and go to entities and spawn it though there that is the one that doesn't go in your inventory but let's you pick it up when E is pressed. If we wish to minimise the chance of someone taking a turret we can restrict it to events where it is spawned using Q Menu rather than the weapon.

I really think this turret would fit the Cinder Tech role and also the heavys of each reg. Even 442nd having this would be pretty cool (although Id wait until Sergeant or something), all together I feel like this turret would fit well into the server and if used effectively would make for a more fun time for the people that get it.

How ever my only concern is the possible lag if a whole reg got it, because having 12 of these things blasting away at enemies would definitely cause some lag at least.

Overall I say +1 to this.

Any update on this yet or is it still under discussion. While I'm here I'll voice my opinion...+1 due to the reasons stated above and the fact that it would be fun using these in battle, I have used these in single player mode and they shoot really fast so that might need some tinkering to slow down a bit but that's all the problems I see so far. Good Luck.
