Hi nice builds!

I didn't know you were on RCG. I saw you in Steam guides at first.
You make some great guides.

I'd like to tickle your brain with a little question if you don't mind:
What do you think about hitboxes? Do you think that all blocks have the same hitbox, or that tetras and prisms actually have smaller hitboxes than cubes?

There have been experiments like this one before: http://imgur.com/a/Z7T6a
But I'm not entirely sure it is accurate. Because I've done some pretty extensive testing in practice mode and I've found that for your own gun-fire all blocks have the same hitboxes. The shot he was able to land between two prisms in practice was a bug, one I experienced quite a few times while testing.

But I don't know if the same rules apply to enemy hitboxes.

This could allow some pretty significant weight reduction on fliers if this is the case.

What are your thoughts?

Thank you for your good words :) Many players don't have steam so this is the only other way I can share my guides with them.

It's absolutely impossible to test this in battle. There are many things that could mess with your results, like lag, animation(ex. smg is hitscan weapon but your shots appear to take some time to hit the target so the animation is only there for the effects) etc.

I tried to use the collision system of the game in the garage and see if this system can detect that prisms and tetras are smaller and their hitbox is different and it appears that way. Prisms/tetras can fit in some places behind electroplates where cubes can't fit which means the collision system can tell that they are smaller blocks

This test you sent me is really old and there have been many changes in block collision since then.

Still, the only way to be sure about something like that is to ask a developer. I will make sure to ask Drognin about it when he has some free time.

In any case, I use as many prisms/inners as I can when I build fliers since they need to be light.

Great. Thanks. Do get back to me if you hear from him.

Drognin told me that they used to be different but they are all cube-collision now!

I hope that helps :)

Oh, great. That certainly helps for building defenses and fliers.
Thanks a lot.
