Changing weapon stats
« on: September 05, 2023, 03:49:08 PM »

So, I'm just wondering if you could change the stats on weapons like range or weapon arc radius and etc. how would you do that if that is possible.

For weapon range, you open weapon_data.csv and edit the weapons range there.

Weapon arcs are based on the ship's mounts so you'd need to edit the ship file.

Even for small changes it might be a better idea to create a mod instead of directly editing core game files.
