Looking through things today I realized that I had created the special unit "scout" (small ship that can be built without a SY and can be involved in ground combat) and realized that I forgot to make any components available for it.

I've done that now. Anything that can be put on a Ship can be put on a Scout. And anything that can target a Ship can target a Scout. But since it can be involved in Ground Combat, some weapons need to be adjusted. Eg: APB currently cannot target any ground forces, weapon platforms or buildings. I've changed this as well.

However, I have a question I'm hoping for some feedback on: Since it is an atmospheric craft, should the Scout be able to mount Small versions of weapons as well as full sized?

Why not have it able to use both smaller weapons and normal sized ones but only the smaller type weapons can target the hostile troops etc?

Without created another version of each type of small weapon, I don't think that can be done. Creating a new version of each isn't really a big deal either, just more than I wanted to put in Smile

None yet. Just the txt files that I've altered. I'm hoping that one of the testers has some graphic abilities and is willing to contribute something (hint, hint). Otherwise, I'll have to figure out how to use this graphics program I've got installed to do it myself.
