Just found a rather annoying bug.
I created a ship design (with the empire praetorian model i believe) with Cruiser Plasma Launchers, and saved and went back the the battle deployment screen. When I launched the game I found the ship now had only Light Plasma Launchers. I’ve tried going back and replacing the CPL’s, but the LPL’s keep coming back. I quit and restarted=nothing. I saved the setup with a different name=no change.
I was, however, able to swap the LPL’s for different weapons other than the CPL’s, so I’m at a loss for what’s going on. Here’s hoping you find what’s wrong!
