Is the a utility or tool to manually edit ship stats such as weapon power and shield strength?
Alternatively can I manually edit the files? If so what files?
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Use the MPE. It's located in the SDK.
I follow teh Moo!

The MPE/SDK also contains the .py files that can be edited in notepad, so download the SDK whichever way you want to edit them!
There are a few files that can be edited, the hardpoints (ship properties) the pointer file (in the directory above the hardpoints) and the plugin if appropriate. The last one is created automatically by BCMP, but there are none for the stock ships. The other two are created by hand or by MPE. They compile into .pyc files of the same name once the game is activated.
Lots of info in the forum on all this.
