Added Modules, Stations and research
You switch between Ship, Station and Module on the Ship Info Tab.
Consider this more Beta than usual. I've tested it, but I tend to make the same kind of ship and haven't tested how all combinations react together...
Keep your OLD version. Just in case...
I'll keep the last link (in the previous post) intact as a precaution.
Also, I recommend renaming the blank file to differentiate between the one you use for ships, stations and modules.
Some systems are not compatible and this shows on the bridge... plus nothing's worse than finding out you saved a 2,000,000 dton starport to your master copy and now you need to make a one hundred ton scout (What? No, that's not personal experience talking! Why do you ask?).
Most Starport Components are located on the 9b-Options Tab. That page will tell you the equivalent starport grade for each section, and when you are in station design mode, there is a colored chart on the Ship Info Tab that does the same.
You can toggle whether to combine station housing with crew housing on the Stateroom Tab. Note that in this version, Residential zone common areas are automatically added at a rate of half the housing volume. So if you want a cramped crew section, use the Stateroom tab.
