In order to change weapon arcs, go to your DefaultCore and on the ship line you want to modify, you'll come across something like this:

PrimaryHP:1:300_360...

1:x_x - X represents the angle in degrees (in this case, the weapon fires in the north-northwest direction [\|] )

x:300_360 - X represents the weapon number (ie. the weapon you'll be modifying, eg. aft phaser etc.)

The same concept goes for all the other weapons. I believe you can make completely new weapon arcs but there won't be any graphics (on the refit/weapon HUD display) to properly display it. There is a useful weapon arc image file in the 'Adding Ships Tutorial' that you can reference with to get the weapon arcs that have the graphics. Get it here:
