I figured you'd probably prefer a different approach...

Though we often ask how and why, we must also do to get the answers to the questions.

You lose weapon flexibility, but imho this is not a big concern with a dock as it can't really 'support' cap missiles properly until you get nexii (with only 4 elec slots).


heh.. html code is off? Laughing

Alternatively, instead of combining the three weapons slots into two you can break the shield slot into 2, giving 10 slots which you can easily make symmetrical.

By the way, with regards to your question about aligning slots in HTML for your hull-displayer, by far the easiest (and most recommended) way of doing this is CSS positioning.

Was thinking something like this:

    W
  E _ E
 S [ ] O
 O [_] S
  W   W
    A


E = electrical, S = shield (12), A = shield/armor (24), O = orbital/electrical, W = weapon, and the box in the middle's the dock.

Hmm, one of the references on the W3 CSS page is a short tutorial on using CSS, I could PM you with more information but don't want to derail the thread with it. Very Happy
