So, I've taken up the modder's torch and written two weapons, planning a lot more and a playership or two. I want to know if I'm doing it right. The first two are powerful, but balanced(?) early-ish game equipment.

While I can't for sure determine their exact balance conformity w/o testing each weapon specifically, I can tell you that you're heading in the right direction. You've got the right idea, with the capacitor & heating imposed limits for otherwise highly powerful weapons for their level.

So, I uploaded a new version. I added a 'magazine' based launcher, two magazine types for it, and the beginnings of a playership. Same download link.
