Arguably, the world does not need another High Guard designer but I wanted to create something different so here a peek of work in progress...

The metaphor is obviously a spreadsheet where items will recalculate based on the changes in ship tonnage. There is also a powerful dependency model which means for example, that if you set the jump drive to 6, the powerplant and computer will change to 6 if they are less than 6.

This feature also works with Tech Level, if you reduce the tech level from 15 to 10, the program will tear down your armour, computers, jump drive and so forth to conform to the new tech level. Changing your ship to a dispersed structure will tear off the armour and fuel scoops.

What you see here is already working. The next step is to model the weapons and after that, crew accomodations. There will be a dependency model between those too.

Question is, how interesting is this program? I plan to make it 100% High Guard compliant at least to start with. How important is designing ships for the other races ? Is anyone interested enough to test it ?

Does anyone know what the deal is on copyright acknowledgement, would it need clearing with Far Future ?

For those of a technical nature, it's written in Visual C# and runs on the .NET Framework V2.
