I think the ship hull selection system to be changed. I’m thinking first you select race, than class of hull, then the hull, not scrolling down through a big list. Same with loading. I find it hard to find any ship designs I’ve made, now it is about 50… So If I want to design a ship using the Federation eagle class Cruiser Hull, I would press ‘Federation’. This would lead me to a menu with ‘fighters’, Frigates’ and ‘cruisers’, (maybe if I hovered the mouse over each one it would give the names of the hulls.) So I click ‘cruiser’ then it looks like the normal selection screen.
[Federation] Rebels Alliance Empire Tribe Fighters Frigates [Cruisers]
Sort of like that. (the square brackets are the ones I clicked to get a eagle class cruiser.)
On a related note, I think eagle class is the best fed cruiser!
