Homing logic for projectiles should be fixed, preferably post-4.0.

My idea for fixing it involves setting a player to "easy" mode when they switch to a homing weapon or enter a vehicle with a homing weapon. This will enable aiming assistance, which will completely fix the almost broken homing logic, as I found out when I played with some single player weapons in level edit.

Ideally, this should be completely optional. It could be a setting server owners choose to turn on or off, so that base gameplay does not change.

I checked the aiming assistance code and its all done via the camera, i.e. its got nothing to do with actual bullet or homing logic, it just looks like its improving the homing logic if you are the one doing the firing.
So no, that particular engine feature wont help get homing missiles to work better.
If there is a genuine legitimate regression in the homing missile logic vs stock renegade we can look into it (as regressions vs stock are important to us), also we can dig deeper into the bullet code post-4.0 maybe and see how homing works and try to improve it.

The trick with homing is to get your curser closer to the origin of the object you want to lock to.

Jamie also said you must aim below the turret while right clicking. While I do that, some of my missiles still miss. I think if we can improve the homing logic, the field on Field would be easier to take.

You need to aim at the 0,0,0 point of the object, if I recall correctly. StealthEye knows it exactly I think.

In other words, aim for the feet when shooting at infantry and the centre of the treads when shooting at vehicles.

Actually I think I was wrong, I think you actually have to aim for the bullseye offset.
