With the new anomalies we’ll need to design specific ships for them. Well for every race I’ve got 10-20 designs between cruisers, frigates, and fighters. Well if I redesign even half of them for each anomaly I now have 70+ designs for each race… That’s a big mess with no organization.
For the ship design screen you should be able to create folders, that you place ships into. So you could make four different ones for each race, then add sub-folder however you want. I would probably make sub-folders for different anomalies at least, but you could also do it for classes of ships, rolls of ships, etc.
Then for the deployment screen you pick which folder to show from. I’m not sure the best way to do this, either it could show ships just in that folder, or ships in that folder and every sub-folder in there.
On the deployment screen it would also be nice to add more data to show what ships you are putting down. I’ve been adding speed to my ship names because some times I only want to use ships of the same speed, and can’t figure it out any other way. It is also annoying when I can’t afford to place any more ships, and I’ll want to see how many frigates I have to take off to afford a specific cruiser. I can’t tell which cruiser is which because they all now say you can’t afford to place it until I take off enough ships to afford them all. I’d like to still be able to see what the cruiser is called, even if I can’t place it.
