Is there a mod that allows us to test ship designs?

I'm thinking of a mod that allows us to build a "target training" drone ship (or something) that we can use as targets to test our ship designs.

I tried setting one escort as a target of my fleet, but that didn't work.

Can this be modded in?

Using the game editor you should be able to make a custom savegame seeded with the ships you want to try out any changes. Will take some time to setup but should do what you are after.

Can't we create a "dummy" race, say called "Combat trainer", that has no home planet and is very aggressive?

Then, we can Give them ships that we want to use as target practice/

Would that be feasible? I'm currently looking at the Modding Guide. It looks doable. But because I have no experience with modding DW, I can't think of any "gotchas" with this approach.

Thoughts?

The easiest way would be to build the ship you want for testing and then gift it to a pirate faction. Then you can blow it up.

If you don't mind Modding the ship templates you can test your designs with Game Editor. I have some fun doing that in this thread. TOnce you have the templates set-up you can test any permutation.
