Did you make sure to place a unit close to the door (after placing it) for team definition?

I am aware of this, same happens to the GunShip too I believe, but I don't know what causes this and how to fix it...

I tried that, but still it turns on no matter what team is near it. Is there something in the Lua that's making it do that?

Hmmm... Odd...

Well, I just checked and everything seems to work fine for me, maybe you should try first placing a unit and then placing a door near it because the way the door defines it's team is by checking the nearest actor's team and setting it as its own.

If there is a sophisticated way to define teams via player (Red/Green) check or something, i'd really like to know how to use it.

The acid sprayer looks neat. Plasma cannon is now gore-tastic.

However, I notice the revolver is quite weak, even when compared to the pistol.

Excellent work! I especially enjoy the redone brain vaults and the missile silo. A most enjoyable mod! I look forward to the next update.

I know absolutely nothing about Lua, but I took a look at the code, and is it possible that when the door doesn't detect a team it assigns itself it's own team and attacks anyone in radius? I see something like a 60 pixel radius of initial detection, but I put the actor down before hand and put the door right next to it with no success.

On another note, maybe you could try using the vanilla doors as a detection base.(just a thought)

Btw, is the Acid Grenade Launcher supposed to have a 360 super large blast radius or a more directional blast like an "acid flak" of sorts?

Since there is no 'if no actors around set self team to whatever' part in the code, no, that can't happen.
I really don't see how it doesn't work for you because i've been trying to get it not to work the hard way and I just can't... It works perfectly fine, team definition works like it should.

I don't quite understand what you mean by this... Care to explain?

Yes, it's supposed to have a 360 degree blast radius and the 'super largeness' of it is cause by the long lifetime of the acid.

Methinks he said 'glue/put a very small actor/door very very close to the laser door as a means of detection', because vanilla doors auto-choose their team, that is, the team of the one who built it. Make one small enough to be detected by your door, yet won't pose a problem to the laser door.

Ohhhh, well i'll see if that works.

Considering it's a revolver that's bigger than your arm, that's reasonable. Just make it has short sight range, maybe.

By what I'm seeing, it should be like a hand held artillery cannon shooting duds.
And by using a lowred rate of fire, and what somebody discovered, you can make a multi-frame cocking sequence... here is the quote.
Could probably make the barrel cock back, which makes the cylinder revolve to the next round, and the barrel cocks back into place...
And when you reload it just drops x shells.

Not quite. Using AnimMode = 4, I was able to make another gun show a whole five frames when shooting. And spinup doesn't help anyway, as it always makes the animation play several times in a row, no matter what the duration variables are set to. Oh well, I guess I'll just follow your advice and transform the gun in a pseudo-attachable, then.

I am well aware of how SpriteAnimMode works, but I think i'll pass on this... Though I do like the idea of shells falling when reloading, so i'm on it.

CarrionTrooper had it right: since vanilla doors are assigned to whichever team built them, then you could graft on the laser barrier and it would be perfect (theoretically, it's way beyond my limits to try something like that)

Maxim, how good is your Lua? Because the gunship is really kinda crap right now. If it functioned like the EDV gunship, like all gunships should, it would be so many types of awesome I can't even begin.
