Could moving weapon mounts even be coded? have a hammerhead type ship that could move them to the sides for better coverage, or to the front for forward firepower.

As I said, a lot of new things will be possible with modules. Whether it is difficult or desirable remains to be seen though.

Hey Tart, noticed something weird for the Draft; the ballistic and energy weapons end up glowing green. Not sure why.

Forgot to bring up this bug before the first round of the tournament. Sorry in advance, Corry. (Technically I did bring it up in the Discord chat, but didn't do so very loudly, and then forgot about it   Embarrassed  )

Diable Avionics ships do not suffer the range penalty from Safety Overrides. This is probably because the built-in hullmod messes with the Weapon Range Threshold stat on line 69 of DiableAvionicsUpgrade.java. I don't know, but it seems to be a likely place where the problem is? Image below for evidence.
The below is a Hayle outfitted with Safety Overrides and a Heavy Machine Gun (450 range, for reference), Glaux Lance Repeater (650 range) and Hypervelocity Driver (1000 range), from left to right. 60 seconds have passed, so there's no range modifier from the built-in hullmod, and Starsector+ has been disabled to prevent the built-in 5% range bonus on destroyers.

the Shear-class(tug) is too cheap compared to the Ox-class(tug).

It has almost half the price.
It has a small hybrid weapon slot.
It has enuf OP to to add augmented engines.
It cost less 1 fuel in hyperspace.
Okey it has less hull and armor but makes up for it in an front-shield and in +35 speed.

I say it should cost at least 30000 credits before tax.

Wait, they can equip augmented engines? could it possibly bring up an 8 Burn ship + augmented engines ( 9 ) with its own 9+1 to 10?

Tugs cannot equip Augmented Engines.
Because of their lack of OP

It may be SS+ change (I usually play with it), but Tugs simply can not equip Augmented Engines, even when they do have OP.

I tested it and even with the Shear's high enough OP, it says the two are incompatible. Though the shear is very much an upgrade to the normal ox
