Fully working tractor beam will paralyze targets once their shields are down and gradually draw the tractored ships to a position directly in front of your ship for easy disposal.
The release (press 'U' then 'R') now works as intended.
Also included is the repair cannon, which shoots small nano-colonies that will perform repairs on the most damaged armor segment on the ship that it hits without adding extra hitpoints.

Won't this be bad to use for dragging freighters if it also damages the freighters that you drag? :P
You know this would be a pretty nasty thing for a capital ship to have - not only can they blast the daylights out of you, but they can grab you with their tractor beam and prevent you from running away.
What happens if you get caught between two tractor beams?
a phobos with a tractor beam would be nasty :D it would have the time to aim and fry you with the plasma cannon!
Now I want to create a new sovereign that makes thorough use of tractor beams.
You mind if I use this in my Gravitron cannon?
wtf? game version is 1.0RC2? o.o whats that!? but could you make one compatible with 0.99c?
yeah XD im using RC2 now but whats this thing named in game? i cant find it at a trading post D=
Just look in the XML. Its called "Tractor Beam", its level 8 so it'll be late game, and its very rare and military, so most stations won't even sell it. But you might find it in wrecks.
Trading posts won't let you order military goods, or specialty or illegal either I think.
Hmmm... Bit of tinkering and I can get it in Eridani!
Ok, bit of tinkering here... made it level 1 and common, but made it deal 0 damage... oh, and just 8 mw. Beginners version :D
With that Centauri Boss, I just grabbed him, dragged him back to commonwealth, and BAM! He got zapped by the police!
