I put a good number of hours making designs for the community and got several PMs saying thanks. Since that time, it seems the Devs have been working more on having the AI do better designing. That's all good, but I still find it very limited and lacking. I think we could have both systems. Here is what I would like:

1. Build a final design for each ship type
2. Build a starter ship for each ship type
3. AI be smart enough to auto upgrade/add each part of the ship until the end design made and all steps in between.


I think with a starting template and an ending template the AI should be able to fill in all the pieces. That's my hope anyways. The whole movement towards "check here" building is better than what we have, but it will still end up with generic ships.

Some people still want custom ships, including me.

Agree, so long the AI isn't much better to create own designs the whole system is pointless !!
Since DW isn't a Multiplayer game and never be one (i hope so) the Dev's need to improve the AI behavior at first before they made the player stronger.

In addition to custom designs, I would like to be able to make a custom research order for each of the NPCs. This would make them build the improved designs faster and make the AI more challenging.
