Thanks for this enjoyable game. Recently I have hit a snag. I purchased the game through Impulse and played it. When my ship tree got too bloated, I deleted all the ships and designed them fresh for each mission. I concentrated on fighters and cruisers but on the final mission in which no cruisers are allowed, I had to use frigates. The problem though, is that I could not redesign the frigates. When I chose “load” to pull up a frigate hull, the “save” option was greyed out. Since I deleted all the original ship designs, this meant I could not use any frigates.
I poked around and found a thread here that suggested not deleting the original tutorial ships.
I uninstalled the program, deleted all my user information and reinstalled the game. Now I have the tutorial frigates which I can edit and save under a different name, but I still cannot “load” a frigate hull and save my own design as the “save” option is greyed out.
Have I missed something obvious?
