Hiyo Rogo

Just a couple quick questions about the tractor beam.

1) I was looking around at assorted ship stats and noticed there were quite a few ships that possessed docking bays, but lacked tractor beams. This seemed quite odd. In addition, there are some ships that fall into the reverse, they have a tractor beam but lack a docking bay or even a hangar bay.

Was this intentional? If so, is there sufficient ground to propose a change to give ships that have logically should have them?


2) Why are tractor beams currently listed as displaying damage? This is not important at the moment, but I do find it mildly amusing and wondered as to the reason for it.

Thanks,
Hiyo

Tractor beams are only partly implemented. They are expected to have increased capabilities later on, so the lack of docking bay will not prevent their only function.

A docking bay without a tractor beam can still fulfill the normal function of docking (piloted) ships, so would not be sufficient grounds for adding a tractor bay either way.
