There are ships of all sizes in the game, but you need Small hulls and MassDriver to build a Gunboat.
In prior versions of GC3 you needed a Small Hull for the gunboat and then it would put the best kinetic weapon it had on it. That's what people are expecting here. I didn't do that because I wanted a Gunboat to be a Gunboat with specific stats and abilities not have one Gunboat with 3 attack and another with 26 attack.
We could either:
- Bring back the "place the best kinetic available"
- Do a better job communicating "you need mass drivers to build this ship" (ie: the ship shows up disabled in your shipyard list with the tech prereq on it).
I probably need to give up on my idea of ships having specific stats and go back to placing the best available weapon.
