Will we have a smaller or bigger type of ammo drum for all the mounted weapons?
I thought if I want to add an autocannon on Vasama , the ammo drum would be too big.
It looks strange and easy to be hit.

And the Mining Lazer , hope we will have types like:
A shorter range but higher mining speed.
Or a wider beam but more energy cost.
Customable parts will be good.

It's been discussed, my self and I think several others are also fond of larger magazines being made into stackable assets like the modular battery and linked to their appropriate weapon by a new cable type for ammo.

I'd like to see high cap magazines but I think they might cause balancing issues. Also a big part of designing ships in Starbase is to make sure the ship is serviceable, and large mags sort of takes that aspect of the game away.

serviceability balancing depends on how the ammo boxes or whatever are reloaded and whether or not different types of weapons have different rules as to how they reload or what they're reloaded with as well as how long it takes as the modular boxes stack up

I am just thinking about the security of it, too big maybe too easy to be hit and explode.
