Tractor beams on all ships would be bad for me.
I rely on the speed of my ships and constantly picking up cargo would be very annoying. This is especially true with larger ships that can hold a decent amount of cargo and really slow me down when its full.

You could always set orders to not pick up any cargo, although the downside to that is they won't pick up goon pods either.

I find it is usually balenced so ships that should have a tractor beam have one. Why have that ship that can hold 2 cargo needlessly slow itself down?

EXEPT... the space cruiser. Why the F does that huge deck have ONE... TINY... PATHETIC tractor beam. It's got such a short range that I have to position stuff right next to the ship for it to pick up. It rams stuff with the front before it's in range. As the ship with the highest possible crew, it should have a beam to pick up crew, yes?

My favorite ship is the carrier I think. Would be the sunspot but I like having manual fire cannons along with my turrets.
