That's fairly easy to add without the editor though, it's a single line at the end of the .ship.

I'm pretty sure it would be the .variant to assign weapons, not .ship. The hull files don't contain the weapons choices, they contain the weapon slots.

And there's a line at the bottom of the .ship to say what weapon is in the built-in slot

Ah, you're (both) right. My mistake.

Even if it works partially, I still plan to go in and make doubly sure everything is good to go for all the changes in 0.53.1a RC5. There could definitely be some bugs

Are you going to have the built-in weapon sprites show up in the ship editor? Just so that it's easier to check if the weapon will blend in nicely with the hull?

I would second that, its not essential, but indeed it would help fine-tune the weapon placemnt without the need to save-open game-check in game-close-open editor-make adjustment-open game... etc.

Yeh, and If that was included, how about making that work with other weapon sprites?

I've been in the middle of a massive rewrite of my JSON parsing/stringifying library, but once I'm done it will be many times easier to deal with the more complex weapon data format. Fighter Wings, Weapons and Projectiles are all in the cards. Showing weapon sprites is pretty trivial to do, so I don't see why not. The rewrite is at the point where it's now as feature complete as the old library, but there are still one or two parsing bugs; but I also have a more complete test suite that I borrowed from JSONLint.com, which should reduce the likelihood of data related bugs once I squash some of the current test failures.

Patience ;)

Wait...you're making your editor be able to make weapons now?  What will my job be then? :(

Probably the same as before, except your superiors will demand 20X the output. Isn't it nice
