Cargo expansion for specialty haulers

Both cargo expanders and their rig counterparts only affect base generic cargo hold capacity.

The problem is obvious: We need items that can actually increase the special cargo bays in specialty haulers, i.e. ore, minerals, etc.

The holds would have to be nerfed to compensate and then you're using slots for expanders rather than agility mods, warp core stabs, etc. I wouldn't like that at all.

I understand your thinking but i could see this killing the use of larger haulers. Why bother using an orca when an expanded miasmos carries as much ore? Why use a freighter to move minerals when 5 expanded kryos would be a fraction of the cost and risk? I haul in smaller ships all the time and this would stop me even beginning to consider a bigger hauler.
