Looks interesting. The design on some might give me some potential ideas when/if I move on to weapons in my hard-coded mod. Keep up the good work.

Nice weapon pack, some gorgeous sprite work there.

I haven't checked whether the ion beams really are beams, but just in case you don't know: Ion damage on beams does not really work. Beams deal their ion damage every frame, so they pretty much add full stacks of ion damage to anything they hit. You can see for yourself with fully upgrade sensors. They will also instantly ionize any amount of shields, so generally they are broken/OP.

Yeah, I tried and tested ion beams before, I've tried to balance it out by making the beam length fairly small.

Yeah but even with one pixel beam length it will still compleately ionize any system through any amount of shields. Meaning as soon as it is charged you can thoroughly disarm every enemy ship. That behevaiour also makes the difference in ion damage meaningless. If the mark I charges faster than mark II it would be far superior actually.

LONG OVER DUE UPDATE!

Added 3 new weapons! Check main post for more details.

<<READ!>> Note: Since the AEA ship patch has not been updated to have the starting ships be equipped with these new weapons, their rarity and cost have been lowered, for now.

Sweet this looks awesome. Would you mind if I used it in my Super Ship Extension Pack on certain ships?
