simple idea to compete using player made ship designs.

we set basic rules such as size and tech levels allowed in a given ship design.

then we trade ship designs and run in the editor a little battle using AI vrs AI and see whos design wins.

then do it player vrs AI.

and share the results.
does this sound possible and doable?

anyone interested?

But how do we get them to fight?

we would just have to trade our specs, or can you send some sort of file for the ship?

then we would each just set up a one on one in the editor with either two AI's at war OR AI and you control your ship.

place the two ships and see what happens.

As Data would say, 'Intriguing'.

Probably worth posting in the main forum. Not everyone comes to the modding forum.

Someone could record the battle with fraps or bandicam. Either upload to youtube or zip it and attach here? I'd do it if I had the time, but I'm swamped with other stuff right now.

May I suggest that we use tier 4 tech - that would give more diversity and options...

I suggest that we should only do 1 vs 1 - to get the rules and logistics sorted. - if this catches on we could do endless combinations later.

But it is your idea, so just set the rules, and I'll design a ship within them.
