Dude don't derail your own threads, tone has a point in conversations and his is used to imply he doesnt see this as ever being worth adding. Your changes would make a sentence that that implies he is asking for more infomation, which he clearly doesnt care about. yours is not a change in tone, its a change to remove dissent.
I assume the carrier and the tractor beam run off the same code. You'll probably see a set range and also a trigger to only work when a plane is at a certain velocity (so asf don't enter the carrier at high speeds.) So i'ts probably possible, but that doesnt mean you should suggest changing it.
This ability is probably more something for the air stations that one would turn on for short periods with a toggle.
