Is it possible to have weapons block placement only for a limited number of tiles?
Ie, Being able to place more than one Dorsal Turret along the top of a ship, as long as they are 2 tiles away from each other.
I would go further with this Idea:
We can place modules left and right of a Dorsal Turret, but this will decrease the fire arc.
Do all weapons really require endless line being unoccupied?
Weapons are shooting over obstacles, self-ship, other-ships and just anything fine.
Is it necessary to make, for example, grenades require that nothing is ahead of them until infinity?
I believe there could be so many interesting designs without that limitation!
Is it a balancing issue? Because you can just stack 10 cannons one on another anyway, that just looks stupid.
I understand that one of the reasons (maybe the main?) of weapon placement restrictions is related to them being destructable at the edge of a construction? But it is possible too to make the weapons specifically destructable at any place of construction, leaving the hole and internal edges.
