Thanks slocket, yeah I finally looked in the hardpoints file, and found them, and it seems the tartan cruiser actually has 5 guns. I also managed to increase it's size in game, and replace the small guns with mediums. Now I need to figure out how to add more "hardpoints" (guns) to it. I'm trying to make the corvettes more like they really are, like on SWG. That means 7 guns, and about 3 times the size of a X-Wing (at least). I have 3 master pilots on SWG, and I can tell you, the corvettes don't play. By default on EaW, the vettes are not much larger than the fighters lol.

Also, I don't know exactly what that
"<Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance> Fighter, 5.8 </Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance>
<Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance> Bomber, 5.3 </Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance>
<Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance> Transport, 1.0 </Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance>
<Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance> Corvette, 10.0 </Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance>
<Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance> Frigate, 70.0 </Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance>
<Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance> Capital, 30.0 </Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance>
<Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance> Super, 30.0 </Fire_Inaccuracy_Distance>"

stuff is for. I'm guessing it's the distance at and beyond which the firing ship begins to suffer a penalty to accuracy? The larger the vessel, the easier it is to hit even if further away. However, if this is the case, they have the modifier applied wrong for frigates. Supers and Capitals are bigger (or supposed to be), yet the frigates have a much higher number.

Also, I've noticed something weird about actual damage, I'm still testing it. I d/l'ed a mod where the guy set all the weapon damage to 99999 on the imperial ships. (you have probly seen mods like this). I lowered the damage numbers and have played/tested with a wide range, setting it at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 99, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 999 and of course 99999. I really don't notice much of a difference, but it seems like I'm getting more in-game damage when it's between 10 - 50. Maybe there is a cap somewhere around 60 - 100? I just don't think it does any good to set it to 99k. I might set my tartans to 40 and try that.

Here's a screenie of me and some pals blowing up a corellian corvette on SWG (sorry it's not in one piece any more lol)

You can see my friend's X-Wing is much smaller.
