I would vote for this but more like a entire different menu, like a workshop only, so you can just design and build ships without having to be in, and also add file management to manage your saves, mainly because like sometimes I have five auto saves of the same ship. I think that this could be a very handy tool
Ok I don't have all the answers but... The game is great but becomes repetitive very quick, my idea to break this... Add planet interaction with a *SimCity like* build and monopolize style gameplay... So to inhibit the players from just going build crazy, it makes resource gathering more competitive... So, I love the game but.. grindy repetitive gameplay leads to quick burnout in my opinion. Add a fun planetarty interaction simulation style to it!!!!
