Nowhere in the segment about payload launchers does it specify what does and what doesn't count toward the size limit on a creation, which is what my question was. I see what you're saying, but I'm not asking what is paid for or not, I'm asking about size limitations.

the laucher would be the limitation.
Otherwise their would be a size limit on the number of minifigures(could be used as a payload) you could cram on to it.

That's why I was wondering about EXPLOSIVE payloads, as explosives are on the list of weapons in chapter 7.

I would count them as being nothing.

For cannons with explosive payloads, I generally give them infinite reloads.  
The downside is that, as a rule of thumb, the cannon is 2X as big as a rocket or other one-use munition with the same damage and accuracy stats, and (if you use CP) about 4X as expensive.

Yea, I had rules for infinite payloads, but it didn't really work in this case because of the size requirements I wanted.

How so?  Is the creation too small for infinite reloads?

For the amount of weapons I wanted on it, yes. I like to follow the rules and make things pretty equal when I make up house rules. I was out of space for more weapon size and I haven't really perfected a balanced unlimited ammo formula.

for explosives (shells, sticks o dynamite etc as launched from a launcher), they don't take up equipment inches but they do cost cp. or at least thats the rule of thumb i use
