One thing bothers me is why I can't repair my ships!! when it loses its guns what happens? wait for it to get blown to pieces?

Did petroglyph really intended it to be that way?

In a perfect realistic game all ships would self-repair over time, like repair crews rebuilding destroyed stuff, also in a perfect realistic game ships would be repaired by docks, but petroglyph obviously didn't care very much to make stuff repairable, probably they thought that a battle was too short and therefore didn't warrant the time needed to code in repair stuff. I might add repair abilities to stuff in my mod, if I can figure out how to make them work.

In the last mission on FoC, the empire has 3 space docks that repair their ships and replace hardpoints that have been destroyed.

However, this was done with LUA scripting, not xml coding. I'm not too savy on scripts, but it is possible to make buildable repair docks that repair ships.
