Pretty much identical comments to Vitak: streamline the capital weapons and segregate them and the std weapons to save on FCS.
Thanks to FCS, Naval Lasers are completely USELESS, except on corvettes (that maybe don't have the mass for NPPCs). Similarly, L and M NPPCs are as well.

I follow your line of thinking as far as seperating the weapons, but doing that seems to led one base warship and a thousand clones...I thought the idea was for each weapon set to support the other...

Putting all of the standard weapons in the boardsides and aft area seems kind of odd to me, give that space is 3D not 2D.

But, you see, the arcs overlap (as they should). This allows you, if you're putting all weapons in all arcs, to have coverage from at least two (sometimes three) arcs on whatever target.
But...if you care more about minimizing FCS tonnage, you can separate the Standard and Capital Weapons--remember, the Fore Sides and Aft Sides arcs are REDUNDANT. Therefore, you actually have two *different* sets of arcs to play with: F, A, BS; and FS, AS.
That way you can keep your capital weapons under FCS limits, and your standard weapons (which mass *sooo* much less) can easily exceed FCS limits but not make your capital weapons even larger.
You can still have overlapping range brackets--because the FS arcs overlap the Nose and LBS/RBS arcs, and the AS arcs overlap the LBS/RBS and Aft arcs.

This is, of course, all bull because, as you say, space is 3D...but the arcs themselves are arbitrary anyway, and 2D themselves.

If I were designing my own version of AT2 now... (and I am)...
Arcs are now represented by letters, A-X (therefore 24 arcs, each 15 degrees). Turrets cost the usual 10% * #arcs/24 (so 5% to fire into half the arcs). FCS limits are--of course!--tossed, and capital weapons are brought into line with standard weapons (or, better said, their efficiency is on the same range curve as std), and armor is massively increased to compensate.

I follow the over lapping and I do see the FCS weights...here rubs the problem for me.

Cramming all of the secondary weapons in the boardside and aft which would make sense given that the F and A sides would have the largest overlap this would be the best place for the capital weapons leads very little difference between the ships.

Remember we are suppose to be building pratical warships that fit into the game...I know it's smarter to go with all H-NPPC and very little else on the ship but after awhile all you have are smaller version of same ship all armed with H-NNPCs and fighters and some point defense weapons...not much fun is it?

I feel that tossing in a set of Gauss Fifles or AC10s depending on the tech level or time frame, in with Capital weapons in the same arc helps keep the other side guessing as to what you have.

As for the 3D of space, it's a mute point since AT2 and BS both work with a 2D model with some attempts at 3D.

Yeah, I've pretty much given up harping on AF weapon choices...they're relatively inconsequential for warships, anyway, and it just makes people so *happy* to mix-n-match.
Nitpick: cramming AF weapons onto the Fore, Broadside, and Aft arcs.

The difference, IMO, comes from the differing roles of the ship; since, due to the way BT weapons are structured, 500pts of damage is 500pts of damage, no matter where it comes from. Thus, except for fancy names, there is no difference in AT2 between the damage a cER PPC or Gauss rifle does. So it comes down to the role(s) for the warship as the area to innovate in. Ack-Ack escort ships, massive fleet carriers, fast carriers that try to stay well out of range, picket ships with ungodly speeds, your average plain-vanilla battlewagon, general purpose cruisers, anti-dropship destroyers, etc.
