    Dang. Error in the BP. The keel dock logic is missing a wireless module. The Cosmo fighters each have a wireless module that is supposed to connect to the pictured wireless below. It's a launch button for the fighters. There should be one wireless for each fighter on each side of the keel hangar hooked up as shown.

    EDIT: was wandering around the Yam today and found another bug, the side cargo dock doors are not supposed to open when the internal door is closed. They're only supposed to close when the internal door is opened, a la an airlock. Haven't looked at where I broke the logic but I had an accident with it shortly before I posted the BP, it was pretty simple if I remember rightly and should be easily fixed if you're so inclined... I will add it to the fix it list anways.
    PS. Has anyone found any other issues or have comments on anything that you think needs improving? How have people found the drones and logic? Works for me but I built it so I would be interested to know how others have found it.
    The Not to the And...

    Edit2 : Have been revisiting the Yamato with the new decorative consoles and blocks as well as fixing up the docked Wave Motion Gun and Missiles as they can no longer shoot through the hull and I discovered I'd removed all the missile capacity blocks and forgotten to put them back when I was refilling... oops... minor oversight there. So if you were wondering why the missiles weren't working very well there ya go...

    I'm currently updating and revising the Yamato. I'm having a hell of a time trying to make a Wave Motion Gun that is both visually acceptable and at the same time destructive enough to be even remotely worthy of it's name.
    With Beam / Beam now dropping shields on the mother ship I'm considering hull mounting the weapon rather then having it docked, and /or swapping it to Beam / Cannon as I'm really not keen on the shield drop mechanic.
    (Also under consideration is making an RP weapons room for the wave motion gun, even though in canon it is fired from the bridge?)

    I'm going around in circles just thinking on it myself so I'm wondering if anyone here has any ideas or a preference on how I should go about setting up the WMG?
    B/B or B/C?
    Docked or hull mount?

    (Any other comments or ideas on general improvements also welcome.)

    Hull mount would be the way to go to take care of the "can no longer shoot through the hull" issue.

    Yah agreed, the alternative would be to cut the front out of the Yam and paste it onto the weapon which I'm not keen on. I've been leaning toward leaving the missiles docked and hull mounting the WMG. If I leave it B/B, it'll give the feedback on when it's going to fire, turning it on and just hoping for it to fire with no feedback was not satisfactory. B/C is not really working for me in my testing so think I'll leave it B/B despite my aversion to the shield drop mechanic. Also hull mount means I can separate the weapons computers and incorporate into a firing room or into the bridge deck. Cheers for feedback Tydeth.

    What about just an enormous waffle of Cc that fires often enough with large enough projectiles that it resembles a beam? Could be a good way to make it a viable weapon. If you're just going for RP, then yeah, hull mounted Bb.

    EDIT: I think this is the last time I'll post here since I've now opened a full shipyard thread. All future Yamato updates or issues can go there.

    As a fan of the original Space battleship Yamato animation, I absolutely love this ship.

    How does the elevator on the QF edition work?
    Nevermind, figured it out. It's a really cool system!

    To use the main lift, enter the floor letter/number, eg 1, 2, A1, B1 etc, combo into the screen and push the button. (Must be capital letter.)
