(probably inb4) enemy arrows getting through my team's platforms

    I like relying on builder/knight to shield me while I charge triple shot, but thin cover doesn't always work


    these filters were supposed to be 1way, but arrows moving nearly parallel to platforms got past.
    It appears that the moment I let my arrow lose, the stone block right in front of me shunted them sideways so they don't get stuck immediate after being fired, although I'm not sure whether that's a contributing factor

    Very odd. Maybe it has something to do that (in-code) the stone blocks are tiles, while the platforms aren't..?

    EDIT: The actual stuff starts around 0:20 in the video the OP posted.

    I hit stuff on purpose to show I didn't just change background sprites to platforms. Test it out yourself if you don't believe me

    I don't think gaps are supposed to be that easy to shoot through. For comparison, see this clip

    showing an angle that's barely close enough to perpendicular for arrow to get thru 1-tile gap

    I admit the "shoot through gaps" trick isn't that practical

    (I didn't do embed media cuz it hides the start time)
    this wall's wooden outer layer is designed to make big stuff like kegs roll off, while allowing arrows through. Use stone for inner layer, so enemy fire arrows that pass through outer are wasted. Bombs do splash damage, so distance expensive stone layer away from outer to minimize the amount of material lost per explosion
