Considering the number of people that seem to be using the estab editor, might it be possible to included a dedicated feature for importing part or whole of another author's estab, such as i suggested in this thread:
Leading on from this, might you set up an place that willing modders could upload Estabs to, from where they would be available for years to come, so that other modders can get stuck straight into scenario design, or map making, if estab creation isn't their bag? And vice versa for maps.
Apart from what PG is willing to do in this regard, I'd urge caution. Players might end up importing data that's no good. Picking up a weapon here, and a vehicle there, and a formation, or two, will mean that your estab may not match that of ANYONE else. And, I don't know if PG is going to be willing to provide support for a modded estab if we break someones game. These comments aren't intended to inhibit folks embrace of what you're suggesting. However, WE do need to think through the particulars of how it's implemented. I say that because we want whatever is done to be a positive, something that enhances ownership and play of the game, rather than FUBARs it.
Government is the opiate of the masses.
