    People who vote no clearly don’t own enough ships. :)
  • I can sort by all sorts of methods, and I have all the ships, and need schems for only 5.

    I have every ship at at least level 1. I'd rather have a better way to sort them, like W.W. Carlisle's suggestion of starring ships.

    I like the redesigned Build & Change Ships Interfaxe. That was a huge improvement. But it’s still a frightening mess to try and scroll through every single ship when launching a voyage, which I had hoped would be fixed at the same time as the main ship inventory.

    I suppose it really comes down to this: would it be easier for the programmers to build a Mothball Fleet functionality for unused ships to be stored until needed or would it be easier to reconfigure the ship selection interface used when preparing voyages to have favorites or at least a search function?

    As there is no current limit on the space available for ships, freezing them is pointless.
    But as been pointed out many times a better system for searching would be nice.
    However I would prefer they put that effort into a better crew search across other areas.

    From what i can tell, they are organised by when they are added to the game ...
    If you view your " datacore import" with Firefox, it will provide a json view, where u can see the ship id's .... the lowest of which for me is the ship i see in the first box when setting up a voyage.

    No, just sorting.

    What about giving us the option to favorite them? They would rise to the top like crew do. If we could do that, I would mark my maxed fives (maybe the nine of tens as well, since, with trait bonus, they would top a normal maxed five), since I'd pick one of those that matches the trait, if I have one first. You'd have all you ships, but would have less sifting to do.

    I think that's a far better option, if they were going to implement a change...

  • Agreed with ideas mentioned above, that would filter ships in much the same way as crew. Implement a favorites tag, and add search options to help locate key traits or ship abilities.

  • Favorites tag and search by ship abilities sounds great.

    I agree with the above statement. LLAP

    Personally I would rather they made ships *ACTUALLLY* useful... Really you only need one, skirmish battles are pretty pointless the whole ship combat engine needs a rework

  • No
    i vote a respectful no, would like to be able to upgrade ships somehow, a bit like our crews but more subtle like, maybe strictly for AM capability on voyages?
