Default Hull Type Identifiers

In the VehicleSizes.txt file, are the "Short Name" and "Code" used in the game at all? What about the vehicle description?

Code is used for the combat summary in the log.
The description should show up somewhere on the select-a-hull-size screen.
I'm not sure where the short name is used.

I think it might be used in the analyst's reports.

Interesting. I'm trying to see if I can mod Q-ships that are identical to standard transports, but don't have the cargo requirements. So I'm trying to find identifiers that are only seen by the ship's owner and not by enemies when they view the hull. Sounds like the code is viewable only in combat reports and the short name is only viewable in the Design Detail section. So it looks like either would work.

The enemy sees such things in the combat report and the design reports too.

Yeah, but by that time the fact that its a Q-ship is an open secret, because its been busy shooting at you..

I just did this for Proportions 3.0.6, but I was unable to find anything that only appeared for the player after design selection. I had to give them the same names as the types they mimic.
