That's an excellent idea. You could have a two-letter code Y*, where the second alphanumeric was the maximum hull size (So Y1 mean a yard that makes 100T ships only, YS means up to 200,000T hulls, etc.) Type of vessels built are always both ships and boats, except when TL is pre-stellar. Total tonnage tend towards !T per 1000 population, but may vary by as much as one order of magnitude.

You'd have to come up with some other way to distinguish between Class A and Class B, but other than that I see no objections at all.

I wonder too if maybe the Starport TL mod wouldn't be more appropriately a Shipyard TL mod? Not that talking such ideas out on the forum is going to influence anything official of course...
Modifiers would include population size and volume of through traffic (what trade routes is the world on).
