I've seen some ships with more, although autofire becomes an issue. maybe that's what you're getting at? on one of PLIOU's ship mods one of the ships has 8 slots if IIRC. I think maybe getting a drone system might screw with that, but it is possible to start with more than 6 slots.
I probably didn't write clearly enough: the idea of 6 or more weapons was an extra, meaning that I needed first to place the weapons correctly, and only after that I could consider placing more than 4 of them.
My Exp. with SL is limited: if I read "Having more than 4 weapons can cause multiple issues" I'm definitely going to reconsider it.
Still, the problem that weapons are always placed below the hull remains: I will have to find something else...
