Can someone who knows Ryan forward this to him?
1) I think I discovered a bug with the fleet builder. Namely, you can view (and potentially modify? - I didn't want to screw up someone's fleet so I haven't tried it) other user's fleets by replacing the number in the URL.
2) Do you guys know why the "swap ship" feature has been removed? And if the reason has to do something with CW factions, does he plan to add it back on? Was one of my favorite things in the fleet builder.
It used to let you swap your ship to a different one, while transitioning all the upgrades that were possible to be equipped by that ship. It was a very very useful thing when one wanted to switch between a chassis of a given ship without the hustle of equipping everything to it again.
You can indeed view other ppl's fleets in that way. We use it to share fleets so it's more of a feature. If you edit someone else's fleet and then save it - a new copy of that fleet is saved to your user.
Moving to 4-faction made it buggy. So it was disabled. The feature is SORELY missed.
