My corp is about to set up a medium Hi-Sec POS and we wanted to confirm a few things from the thread "POS Setups: Jump Bridge, Cyno Jam, Reactions, Moon Mine, LoSec Mining and Labs" were up to date before we spend a bunch of isk and set it up.

First, for POS weapons, is the range of the weapon really measured from the tower rather than the weapon, or is it all from the weapon itself?

Also, when a POS gunner is running weapons, do all the weapons that he isn't using turn off while he is running the other guns?

Second, if I offline things like manufacturing or research while they are in the middle of something does it pause until put back online or are they canceled?

iirc, but it has been a while since I had to play gunner

pause, at least used to

This. About the guns (and I don't know ether) it hardly matters for a high sec pos. The best defence is excessive ECM batteries (amarr heavy) and shield hardeners. Let them know it'll take over 50 BS 5+ hours to RF it and the'll look for easier targets.

Unfortunate that you chose not to post in that thread, so that others could benefit.

Turret range is measured from the tower, though for a gunner it is shown as from the module. EWAR is measured from the module.

I've personally tested pulse lasers, autoCannons, and warp scramblers. I also tested ammo and found it affects the range of these turrets. Beam lasers and artillery have enough range to not really be concerned with ammo. Hybrids and missiles are useless, so I did not test them.

No. They stay in automatic mode, where they change target 30 seconds after locking (or 7.5 seconds for ECM on a bonused Caldari-type tower).

Offlining moves them to a paused state that is resume when the array goes back online.

Unanchoring a module will cancel all jobs in it.

Thank you for the answers.

We're gonna focus on ewar to be annoying, but wanted to anchor a few guns just in case someone gets determined. Unlikely but we wanna be prepared.

As for not posting in that other thread, sorry, but I wasn't sure how bumping old threads was regarded on these forums.

most of the threads here auto lock after 90? days of inactivity
and that thread keeps some activity, so noone would have cared much
