It will fire it from time to time, but the issue is that the game doesn't allow me to make a weapon that the AI won't fire at a random lone fighter without making that AI also incredibly hesitant to fire it at all.

Oftentimes a nod is better than an outright copy. For one it gives you the room to adapt stuff to the setting of the game as you see fit, and additionally people will be happy to get the reference instead of having it fed to them.

Good on you for reaching out. I tend to play it safe and avoid IPs altogether, but this is actually the right course of action.

Sorry, I still need to fix a few thing so it will be tomorrow. I'll post the schedule tonight.

Ah, the great internet myth of "it's free so I have every rights". You want to take copyrighted stuff from a litigious publisher that is currently trying to revive this specific IP? Yeah, I wouldn't be so sure about the soundness of that idea. You don't want to spend time working on something only to get a cease and desist letter? Then do something original, even if it is inspired by other material. Because while the risk is mild indeed, it's not 0.

And if you manage to get proper dialogs in the game, writing original stuff will be the easy part to boot.

Sorry for the Necromancy trick but this fits here I believe:
ShipAPI.getVariant().getNonBuiltInWings() returns an empty list on ships that have both built-in and non built-in wings

Speaking of rounds, I added the VoDs to the OP.

What would be worth testing too is PD Laser with IPDAI against Tac lasers, as well as LRPD with IPDAI. I suspect the double damage to missiles will change the results a lot.

A lot of faction/ship packs mods add pure "playerbait" ships for that exact purpose. Off the top of my head:
Blackrock has the Imaginos and the Morpheus
Imperium has the Royco
Diable Avionics has the Versant and possibly the Pocket Gust
Scy has the Stymphalian Bird
And there are a plethora of them in Tahlan Shipwork or Seeker Ship Pack.

You can find the pre-rework release further back in the thread, or easily in the "previous files" on Nexus.

Speaking of which, today's round is about to start on Nemo's twitch since our scheduled streamer is still ill.

One of our casters fell ill, therefore we have to postpone tonight's stream until tomorrow, same hour same twitch.
Apologies for the inconvenience. (I swear this tournament is cursed)

The only way this could happen is if another mod modifies weapon groups, which would be weird. I don't know if any in your mod list can do that, but in any case that would break the Frost and that's not something I can fix on my end.

There are a bunch of mods on Nexus, so that can help. But not enough to make it a viable alternative yet. The problem is that those things take time to put in place so that costs money. And even then they can not be picked on by modders.
