It seems the game has tied ship sets to family types so you can not have each races have their own set.I hope this is changed in the near future.

Agreed. It should just take a bit of work by the devs. I would also like to see extra ship images so that I'm not tied to using the one image for each ship role. MIL1A, MIL1B, etc should be included for us to use. This shouldn't be difficult to implement at all.

Unfortunately, I think we may have to wait a while for these kinds of changes. The devs are focusing on bugs, game balancing and smoothing out the rough edges. So this sort of thing is going to be pretty low priority. At least that's my general feeling.

I am amazed that you can't just choose which shipset to use at the start of the game.

I'm also amazed at this.

Seems a pretty basic feature.

Ha ha. I spent hours getting the Star Trek Mod to work (works like a charm BTW!) but imagine my dismay when even in my earliest battles all My enemies keep showing up in Federation style ships   THE eMPEROR will not be pleased.

I've got it set up pretty well now, races that deserve indidual ships get them and everyone else gets a generic set that suits them.

Yes you can.......you just edit the right figure in the racefile (or use bubblewraps editor)
For example, my current setup is
Family0 Star Trek ships for my custom starfleet race
Family1 BSG ships for my custom BSG race
Family2 GSB allience ships for 3 reptile races
Family3 Brown Eve ships (forget the name) for 3 insect races
Family4 Mixture of tauri and eve ships for 2 remaining humanoid races
Family5 Vanilla browny green ships for 3 rodent races
Family6 GSB tribe ships for 3 ursidian races
Family7 Various blue ships for 3 Amphibian races
Family8 Star wars ships for custom Galactic empire race

Of course this leads to unlikely encounters.....Palpatine vs starfleet lol but at least the shipsets make sense.

That just uses the different familys.You can not have humans,Securans,Kaidens use different ships sets.

Yep, you can never get more then 9 sets. All you can do is make the best use of what you do have.
You can have humans,Securans,Kaidens using separate shipsets but you will have to make sacrifices elsewhere to get it working. Any more then 3 or 4 truly individual races and your going to wind up with everyone else sharing the few remaining sets.
Imagine 8 truly unique races and the remaining 12 sharing a set.

Personally I really hope this is opened up in the future. I would also like to see more moddability regarding the special governments. Perhaps we should start a modders wishlist.
