Yeah. We didn't want engine upgrades to just mean extra engine nozzles or a bigger engine section. This basically just means the reactor can run hotter and pump more plasma through the engines.

If you're making reactor upgrades, you could also have an upgrade that reroutes additional power to the MAC, thereby decreasing the amount of time needed to charge up between shots. I've always wondered why the UNSC didn't do that...

There's going to be MAC upgrades, yeah. Though it'll probably be more along the line of energy recycling/more efficient capacitors, something that'll be visually specific to the MAC.

As far as I know, you can't edit weapon files with a sub-system.

Basically you'll unlock them by researching a broad sort of internal hull upgrade first, then either build the subsystem or the research will add it automatically(depending on what we can do!)
In this way, you'll know what sort of upgrade path your enemies are taking, and will get a chance to counter it.

Well, we're aiming for research to be more integral and for you to put more thought into it than just "grab everything eventually" - Honestly, i think the way that the game currently plays, armour upgrades will be more valuable at the start of the game to bump a frigate up from only taking 2 hits from a MAC to barely being able to survive it, allowing it to fire it's own MAC rather than instantly being taken out by a destroyer.
