Ammo(box) suggestions

#1
I'd like to suggest two things about ammo boxes. Currently, ammo is stored usually in armoured housings, with multiple boxes stored in the same location. Detonating a single ammo box will result in a 3m radius explosion, which I find reasonable.

However, I find it odd that a large number of ammo boxes together will not lead to a significantly heavier explosion, while I think that it should. Each connecting ammo box should increase the explosion size by a fixed amount, say with a factor 1.2. A ammo store with a 3x3x3 would blow up more violently than a 2x2x2, and less violently than a 5x5x5. This has a few implications. It will be more interesting to spread out the ammo stores across the ship, which will make it harder to just place ammo in locations where battledamage isn't much of a problem. It will also lead to designers having to calculate the risk of concentrating the ammo versus spreading it.

It will also create bigger booms, and who doesn't love bigger booms?

Second suggestion: The introduction of a "High grade" ammo box, which contains more ammo than the standard box (I'd say in the range of 500 per box), without resource generation and with a 7 radius detonation. This should aid the more realistic builders, and will allow for a larger ammo pool to help adress high peak usage. Like with the standard ammo, the explosion radius increases with the amount of connected ammo boxes, so there is a significant trade-off.

Let me know what you think Smile
