Author Topic: Fighters launching from slots added by hullmods don't use launch bays  (Read 531 times)

When a hullmod such as converted hangars adds fighter LPC slots to a ship, fighters launching from or landing on that ship will only do so from the ship's centre, instead of using launch bay locations if they are provided. This naturally applies to all hullmods that add fighter slots, but isn't a vanilla issue since no vanilla ships have launch bay locations defined in the eventuality of converted hangars being used, making it a modded issue. This could also make the decorative hangar bays on the eagle/falcon functional as an easter egg of sorts ;).

Upon inspection, the onslaught, eagle, falcon, tarsus, mule and paragon sprites appear to have some form of shuttle bay that could be defined to fit the theme of the hullmod.
