Think outside the box? You mean put missile launchers outside the ship info window?

Grr! I really want to put 8 missile launchers on my larger ships! Better that you had never told me I could fusion! :)

I've tried everything I can think of using the ship designer, so do you have to do something outside of that? Like modify the files or something

C'mon, give me a hint! Please!

How do you put 9 components on the front of a ship?

First you have to remove the command points from a ship, by filling up a side without a command point with 8 components and dragging the command point across. Then if you fill the front of the ship with 8 components and bring a command point into the center of the design, the picture of your ship, the editor will ping you with an error box saying, 'you must have one command point'. The command point will then snap to the front of the ship (or the side you were last messing about on) if theres 8 components there, you've just added a 9th!

But this makes the ship invalid and it never becomes available to purchase.
