I calculate surface area by configuration.

What I was aiming for was an alternative way to balance the number of weapons available to a ship, without having to track EPs for the weapon systems.
Following some excellent suggestions I'm wondering if max. hull hardpoints can be used as a much more versatile accounting system in simple ship design?

For me, this is not a engineering rule, but a design consideration.

I agree completely.
Quote:
I also think sensor and communication arrays, and propulsion nozzles should reduce available surface area and therefore available hard points.
More to add to the list

Thanks for the feedback.
