To be fair to Matrix, while there are certainly limitations, and I was underwhelmed by what was moddable before Universe release, in some respects it's a lot more moddable than I expected. The ability to mod the AI was not advertised at all, yet due to changes in patches, and changes that were possible already, I've developed an AI Improvement Mod. With Phasers, while I agree with your point that we can't mod the bypass shields effect and that would be cool, note we can change the damage and range.
That's the point, we can indeed change the damage and range and pretty much everything in the components.txt file, but cannot change component features such as bypass shields or targeting bonus. I really don't understand why they decided to not include it.
