Summary0019370: Investigate grenade launcher explosions being too small.
DescriptionNotes from Keith and myself:

> It would be kinda helpful for me to know how big to make these things slightly more directly, so that I can make an underlying "plate" in space and then size the effect I'm doing based on that. That's what I was doing before, but I think you changed some unrelated things that then changed the effective plate size, and now I don't know what the plate size is truly supposed to be.

Here are all the "reference" distances, the only absolute distances left in the xml:

      distance_scale_gravwell_radius="10000"
      distance_scale_unit_radius="75"
      distance_scale_shield_radius="575"
      distance_scale_weapon_range="1250"
      distance_scale_aoe_radius="500"
      distance_scale_ship_speed="167"
      distance_scale_shot_speed="3334"
      distance_scale_beam_endpoint_separation="70"

All other distance numbers in the xml are defined as a multiplier of one of those numbers.

So a normal blast radius is about 40% of a short-range weapon's range, or about 5% of the gravwell radius.

Most aoe weapons have area_of_effect_size_scale="1", which means just the straight 500. Lightning warheads have 2. Mines have 0.1, though that may be hopelessly small.
