That simplifies things quite a bit. I’ve divided everything you need by folder and put each file within a spoiler under the filename.
Everything with colored text is the stuff you’ll need to edit. Red text are things you need to only choose one of.
For deciding which weapon stats to use between autocannons and point defense you can look at the weapon wiki page, or in the weapon_components spreadsheet in the vanilla common/component_templates folder.
Replace t3 with t4 or t5 depending on which tech tier you want it to be a part of.
Add volatile_motes = @s_t4_rare or volatile_motes = @s_t5_rare to the cost bracket if it’s from those tiers.
Change tier2 to tier3 or tier4 based on if the weapon’s tier is 3, 4, or 5 respectively.
