Subject description: Weapon Range

After Modding my Carrier with a Dummy Unit that spawns another plane, Turns out OpenTopped, does not respect Range=-2.

For Modders out there, don't use Range=-2 Spawner Weapon on the Passenger  on an OpenTopped=yes unit.

Also if the OppenTopped vehicle's primary weapon has a longer range than any of the passengers inside, it will not fire until it hits the range of the passengers

Also OpenTopped with passengers wont work via reinforcement. Must evict occupants and send them back in for the passengers to fire out of the vehicle

I have a feeling OpenToppedRangeBonus=2, in modifying the Range of your unit from -2 to 0 has something to do with this.

Did you try with Range=-4 perhaps?

why, what does it do?

I know -1 and -2 are special cases in-engine, so I dunno, make it -2.5 maybe?
