Just wondering about this. Is there a way to group weapons with different ammo types? For example, I'll have 6 heavy missile launchers, and I want half to fire thermal damage and the other half to fire EM.

load up the weapons with the ammos you want, then drag and drop the icons for them onto each other (thermal to one pile, em on another), they'll stack and group automagically now.

Weapon grouping was introduced as a way to make the servers only have to do 1 calculation instead of 1 per weapon. As a side effect it makes it more convenient to activate and use weapons. All the weapons have to be exactly the same with exactly the same ammo for the math to work out on the backend. You can do several smaller groups if you'd like (shift-drag one weapon to another.)

I have 2 groups of 3 missile launchers each on my ship, it works fine.
You just have to drag them manually into 2 groups of 3.

You can't make 1 group if the launchers have different ammo.
