Design Mode



There's "Build Mode" but it requires an active ship.

"Design Mode" allows a "virtual design of a ship" in game without the use of resources or limitations, and is ENTIRELY client based. No communicating with servers---just the local machine. Once the design is saved, it can be loaded server side.

Design mode would be a resource independent, client-only (regardless of whether you are on a server), no-ship-required

This would allow a fix for things like:

  • Having to log off a server to design in single player like a Neanderthal because of server communication time
  • "You do not have enough slots"
  • "You do not have access to that building material"

Honestly don't care if I don't have access to that material---I need to get into the ship so that I can fix what's missing/in place so that I CAN build it---without having to log off and go to single player to do it.

I would love a "Design Mode"!

I often redesign the ship i currently fly. Sometimes i redesign it from scratch. Thereby i regularly run into several issues like:

- make ship smaller -> to much crew
- make ship bigger -> not enough crew
- rebuild cargo hold -> current cargo blows into space and fades away
- ...

So yeah, a "Design Mode" would be really great.

I'd like to add to this the ability to work on rootless pieces to make into clipboard templates rather than having to build a sprue off an existing ship then build whatever cool looking structure and copying and saving that piece so I can paste it onto whatever ships I want to build.
