Yes, it would have. That said, I've decided to re-release it with the latest 1.0 version number for the sake of consistency:

Happy Hunting, folks!

The funny/best part about this update is because I have been wishing that your turrets didn't explode just hours ago. I use your turrets as weapons for my Mechanoid Army (courtesy of "What The Hack?!"), and let's just say that 30 raiders was no match for 2 gatling-gun and grenade launcher-strapped centipedes, but they were easy pickings for the 6 surviving raiders as soon as the centipedes' own turrets exploded on their backs.

Thank you very much!

Why is the magazine capacity of the turrets so low? Any chance to increase it?

The funny/best part about this update is because I have been wishing that your turrets didn't explode just hours ago.

Exploding turrets in the stock game bothered me as well - my understanding is that Tynan wanted to simulate ammo cook-off, but more often than not a group of raiders simply surround and melee the turret, so it didn't make sense to me that a turret would explode from being smashed with a club or something.

Incidentally, Combat Extended also doesn't use CompProperties_Explosive for their turrets, so I removed them from the stock version of DMGTP as well for consistency.

Why is the magazine capacity of the turrets so low? Any chance to increase it?

The turrets' magazine capacities were based on real-world data.

In the case of the M134 Minigun, while 3,000 and 4,000-round ammo magazines do exist, Combat Extended has a technical limitation in that the maximum stack size (and maximum amount that pawns can reload) for its 7.62×51mm NATO is limited to 500 rounds. After consulting with CE's author NoImageAvailable, we decided to cap the M134 Minigun turret's ammo capacity to 500 rounds.

So no, CE will not allow the limit to be increased.

When reloading the turrets the magazine is getting "emptied" before. Even when it still have 400 ammo the process of reloading is deleting the current magazine before placing new one? Is that the procedure? Couldnt check it yet.

But isnt it possibly just to add ammo to the current magazine instead of replacing it so it can be stacked above the carry capacity of haulers?
Just like they do with any item piles.

That's standard behaviour for reloading Combat Extended - instead of simply topping up ammo, it completely removes any existing rounds before reloading it with a full stack.

There's nothing I can do to change this behaviour to increase the M134's ammo capacity, and any changes would adversely affect the way CE works.

It kind of makes sense too.
With any weapon where you do not manually feed it with rounds (forexample a classic pump action shotgun), you detatch the whole magasin, or you detatch the belt. Topping off would be quite unrealistic unless it was some sort of caseless ammo where you could just pour more into the box.

Does removing mean deleting existing magazines? Or is the replaced ammo put into backpack for later use? Couldnt check myself...

All good, just wanna know the rules. Keep up the great work!

The existing ammo is first moved to the pawn's Gear invetory, before the weapon is completely reloaded.

I assume you have played with Combat Extended before? Because this is standard CE behaviour.
