By "anyone" do you mean the devs? I'm sure they care, and if it was easy it would have been done by now. :P

If you do mean anyone at all, I do still care. Sucks to know it's still not fixed.

I've already suggested a quick fix to the problem. While I don't know if its possible with the engine, it is the best way to fix the issue baring a real fix.

I noticed two things that can lead to SRM-suicide (SS):
1. Dumb user shoots ground/railing/mech which is close to the dumb user (most common case)
2. LAMS hits the SRMS

or we could try.....

I've seen and had this happen in mid air once or twice, looking up while in the open.....so, it's a bug.

aye, its not just lams hitting the SRM, you can be anywhere, fire the srm and have it kill/damage you. extremely annoying to the point where i've stopped using SRMs on BA for the most part.

I've had what appears to be the second SRM strike the first SRM and explode 6" from my face.  Happens to me more often when other hit detection problems are occurring.

I shoot myself quite often with this and it is never the first missile. The second one always explodes in my face. Usually happens when my ping gets a little high and im moving around a lot. Liked to have it looked at. I've learned how to avoid killing myself most of the time, but it still happens occasionally.
It is far better to be heard and not seen than to be seen an not heard; such is the way of a Ghost Knight.

Often for me its just the first missle that kills me, so it doesnt seem to be them colliding.

Alright this is the simplest and also a realistic solution to this problem...

A minimum arming distance safety fuse.

Weapon manufacturers do it in real life and it's the quickest fix i can think of.

When I've experienced it I've died on firing the missiles, but not because of the missiles hitting anything near me - I've seen both my missiles fly off and hit the target 200m away on the death screen (I wasn't getting shot at the time, just standing with a clear shot at the enemy, no LAMS involved). Boosting slightly so I'm not on the ground when I fire seems to prevent the problem.

While this might still be true for some suicides, I had to learn the that there is indeed more to this. Some SRMs just kill you, out of nowhere.
As soon as I find reproducable info, I will post it here.

Y, I like. Solves the issue with the BA jumping on top of a Mech and firing without taking any damage too, if the BA was modified to not take damage from his missiles.

I do not think this is caused by srms detonating on launch, but seems to be an issue with the launch itself - iirc whenever I get killed by this the missile seems to keep going without exploding.
