To be honest, I really don’t like them.
Most of those changes amount to “everything that was fired from the front weapon pods is now fired from the rear weapon pods”.
So let’s begin:
Vulcan Chaingun, Boron Railgun and Moron Railgun are, well…
The projectiles for some reason spawn to the sides of the rear weapon pods.
This also applies to the H&C X01 (though that at least matches up with the wings):
In fact, a lot of those patterns look like they were made for the H&C X01 and don’t fit the M40X at all (which may be a bug, I am not sure).
Those two patterns appear to be exactly the same and they don’t fit the M40X’s weapon pod setup.
The one thing that looks slightly different is the Ion Blaster pattern:
But it still seems like a completely unnecessary change for the M40X.
I didn’t test out all weapons on the H&C X01, but none of the changes made for the M40X make much sense imo (especially since the Deliverer is the ship for which all the weapons were originally designed).
