Another thing that's missing for fleets and management thereof:

- Mass rename objects: Let us select a number of objects in the property owned list and 'batch rename' them (e.g. prepending text, or giving them all the same name which will be autonumbered). This is important to properly sort the list into categories, and while it's okay to do it manually for smaller numbers, this can be a major pain when you have a lot of objects to go through.

- Allow us to filter the property owned tab by object type and/or selectively hide certain types of entries. Deployables such as laser towers should allow you to hide them, whereas nav beacons, resource probes, etc. should allow you to show them if needed.

Having to manually rename all these so they don't clog up the list is no fun.

Yeah, as i'm getting closer to making my own Fleet this is a must, it's getting tiring to just capture abandoned ships and renaming them.

- Allow setting a dress code for your employees. Especially with the implementation of sector ownership and creation of your own faction coming. My employees should look the part.
That would be awesome. Color and logo on the uniform would be a bonus too.
Just add it like the ship logos, maybe in a later update/mod

It would be greate to have ability to also select which type uniform for which NPC (e.g. Pilot, Captain, Engineer, Marine) - but I probably ask for too much.

I don't even know what to say. Reminds me of the genius words from
Homer Simpson: "Oooh! A piece of candy."

It also, in a small way, reminds me of the futuristic feature invented by Devolver Digital called
Comment Created Content that was showcased in their E3 "Big Fancy Press Conference 2017" on youtube. Brilliant!

I want my captains in proper uniforms. Not a T shirt or hoodie!

I would like to see an option to sign a peace treaty with NPC factions or declare war on a faction. And I really don't like the fact that when you go below certain rep with a faction that you can't recover from that.

Or everyone with a T shirt or hoodie.
It's somehow harder (or time consuming) than it seems, because you need to create the same textures on Argon, Teladi and Paranid (and Split and Boron, in the future).

Nope :x I keep checking in hopes that they will at least say something about it.
But still nothing, very disappointing :( :(

requested features

1. Allow turn off of highways (without affecting mod status). Increasing travel speed a wee bit for this would be a bonus.
2. Change priority of modules being built on a station. Really handy when you have 50+ modules and you just want to have the docks built first (then storage, then production...etc.)

If you go further, then it is probably worth introducing medals and orders for captains and marines. For 100 shot down xenon .. for 10 taken ships, etc. :P

Should we expect large number of bugs with the new expansion in the end of 2019? Or from the sounds of it, there won't be any new game mechanics that require additional scripting but only new ships, new sectors, new missions and new race? From what I understand it will be just extra sectors to explore, missions will be similar to what already in game, just nested to new stations, by using similar mechanics that are already in game, maybe new trade guild based on similar mechanics as well, and possibly couple war threat missions, sectors will be similar to what is already in game, just different names and graphics, race will be similar to the humanoids with just bigger squared heads?
