ships fireing without wepons

I was thinking...
You know how wepons have a hard point from which they fire, could it be possible to put these hardpoints on a ship and put the wepon entry into shiprach so the ship can fire without any wepons mounted?

I was gonna test this theary out but didn't want to mess up my freinds save.

Hmmm, well, a HpWeapon hardpoint is the only thing u can mount a weapon onto, so having a weapon without a hardpoint being on it is impossible afaik, mounting a weapon onto any other form of hardpoint would be silly as for example, other hardpoints such as thruster, would fire only 1 way and would'nt revolve with aim.

So I'm more or less saying no to this one..

hotwire ^^ if you put your guns inside the ship nothing will happen, should just fire normally (im stabbing in the dark b/w taking it off post experiences), the SUR wont register its hit. I say this because we have managed to merge 2 ships in vanilla FL unmodded on a server and it looks weird as hell ^^

hmmm when i tried it it blew myself up

no i mean when you open a wepon cmp the wepon only has two hard points: HpConnect and another one from which it fires. so what if you took that hard point and put it on a ship and then placed a wepon entery in to its ship arch file.

*cough* you guys bothered to look at the nomad weapons? They don't have mat textures which makes them invisible, so looks like the weapon is firing internally

yes i know. not to sound rude but I don't think i explained my idia correctlly.

What i want is for the ship to beable to fire without any wepons mounted. for example: you by a dager and lanch with no wepons but when you press the fire key it still fires.

I am going to try this this saturday to see if it works cause i don't think i can place what i whant into words.

Remove any weapons mounts from the shiparch.ini and then make sure weapons are mounted on said mounts in the goods.ini package for the ship.

Voila - buy the ship and launch. You can't see your guns in the hold etc, but outside you can "turn them on/off" as per usual with the numbers and still fire too.

I guess you didn't read then mate.

As for battleships not transferring weapons - yes, same method.
As for making guns unmountable... yes, same method.
