Besides any other potential or existing issues, one thing in the new crafting system leaves me wondering. The special gear you can start making at level 15 in different schools. Why are there no Heavy Cannons or Turrets?
They added omni-directional beam arrays, wide-arc dual heavy cannons, conductive RCS accelerators, exotic particle exciters, particle emission plasma torpedoes, and even the TR-116B. However, heavy cannons remain exclusive uncraftable items.
Why is this? Omni-directional beam arrays were previously similar exclusives to heavy cannons, and wide-arc dual heavy cannons didn't even exist before. (Love both, along with the other new special items, by the way. Thanks!) I would love to be able to make heavy cannons/turrets as well. Especially turrets, considering that regular turrets are now outclassed by the omni-arrays, which can't use cannon skills.
