Ship images support paths , but ship minimages (in customizeUI) do not. At least, as far as I can tell.

Ship configuration files (.txt and .xml) also support paths (that is to say, in blueprints.xml you can use a path to point to these files)

Are Augmentations hard-coded, or is there a way to mod a dummy one in through the data files?

The effect of augmentations are hard coded. You can make dummy ones to be used in event <choice> triggers, though.

anyone know if you can change the game parameters for having crew (e.g. make it so you dont need any crew at all) thus making it you only lose when you die? also a way to change it so any crew that do appear on the ship are AI controlled rather than Player controlled?

I believe the only way to do this is to start a ship off with no crew. (You could have the first event at the start beacon add several crew and the ship would still count as AI, i.e. not lose if all your crew die.)

This isn't possible. But you could use a bunch of System Repair and Anti-Personnel drones.

While creating a ship I ran into a problem, which can be solved by two ways:
1. Making a weapon unremovable, so that it can't be changed throughout the game. May be through an event, which appears when you try to remove the weapon and prevents you from doing so.
2. Creating a copy of artillery system and altering it's parameters. Or is it possible to alter parameters for only one ship?
Is any of these ways possible to realise or i waste my time trying to do so?

I'ts not possible to make a weapon unremovable, and it's not possible to alter a weapon's properties for a single ship only. So your only way out is trying to alter the artillery (you can't add new systems AFAIK)

Well, thanks. I'll try something else then.
