There's a number of thing to consider for created new planet sizes. Besides just changing PlanetSizes.txt, you also have to create entries in StellarObjects.txt that utilize the planet size and tell the game what textures and images to use and don't forget to edit the settings block at the top of SystemTypes.txt. There may be one or two other little things to do as well...
Tried that. It didn't work; I just replaced all instances of the Tiny planets with my new planet size, and instead of generating the new size it..generated NO tiny planets OR the new size. Medium and above only..

When creating a new weapon, How will the AI determine if it is a primary weapon, heavy weapon, or a special weapon? Can you change present weapons type from one to another or is this hardcoded? Can you possibly add a 4th type like missle/torpedo weapons? Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

There are list variables that tell the AI which weapon to use as primary, heavy, and so on. The variables can be changed in the source [Empire]_Main_Script.txt file. Any changes require the script to be re-compiled and then added to the appropriate Empire folder to take affect.
