My intent for the next version will be:
UNIVERSAL slot = weapon "type" completely ignored (ENERGY, BALLISTIC, etc)
LARGE slot = weapon sizes LARGE, MEDIUM, SMALL
MEDIUM slot = weapon sizes MEDIUM, SMALL
SMALL slot = weapon size SMALL only

Minor correction: you can only slot weapons one size smaller. So, no SMALL for a LARGE slot. Also, UNIVERSAL trades this flexibility for being able to use any type - so, for UNIVERSAL slots, the size must match exactly.

I wonder if its a possibility that when you do the .ship when doing the engine, that the program can show you how the engine trail will look exactly, would be nice, but I bet its impossible

this ship editor is becoming very very amateur friendly. I love it, though I haven't used it very much yet >.>

Thank you for the new version. Posible idea for next version - would it be possible to have pre-set angles?

like 45°, 90°, 120°, 180°, 360° ? or to have an option to type in the digit, so the numbers would be absolute and exact? Like the drag system, but 360-ty is an exceptional pain in the ass for example.

alright, I'm getting that same error as before, but this time it happens when I try to assign a weapon to a weapon group. I was working on getting a fighter's variant.

^^ THIS. Pre-set angles would be extremely helpful. What would be even more helpful would be MrDavidoff's idea of a floating textbox in which one could type the desired numeric value on a per-turret basis. From a precision standpoint, that would completely rule. Please consider adding these features! Thanks.

If you can post detailed, reliable steps-to-reproduce, I can fix bugs. If external data is required to produce the bug, post that as well.

here is all I have to do to reproduce the bug. Alright it's very simple.

-Import image
-Mark the weapon hardpoints (just slap it on there, no changes)
-press 2 to go to variant mode
-Press G for weapon groups.
-Finally move the right arrow key to reproduce the bug. (this happens by doing these steps in complete order, or going ahead and doing anything else then trying to change the weapon group [as far as I've tried it])

@Zilerrezko: Confirmed, I can reproduce it. Thanks for the bug report. It will be fixed in the next release.

In the meantime, don't press G to assign weapon groups, until you have at least one weapon assigned to a slot.
