If they do end up allowing users to utilize the foundry to "build" customized ship interiors, I hope they include assets to allow owners of the unique ships ( Bug, Galor, D'kora, Tholian) to finish their interiors. Also for that matter, allow proper interiors for the D'kyr and Atrox as well as period proper assets for the NX, Constitution Refit, Miranda, Excelsior, and Oberth.
Same love needs to go to the KDF as well. I am tired of going to my Gorn ship and stepping on to a Klingon bridge. We may be allies but the Klingons did not build my ship!

Its really disappointing that the company that created the outstanding Super Group base editor for City of Heroes can't seem to do the same quality of work for ships and bases here.
It's funny that I hear so many people praising CoH's base editor NOW. Back when I was playing that game a few years ago, I remember everyone saying that it was the crappiest excuse for a editor with no actual choices so almost all bases ended up looking pretty much the same.
Also, didn't supergroup bases come into play after Cryptic sold CoH to NCSoft?
No, we built the super base editor even before CoV (i.e. long before the sell off)
We heard very little praise back then for the editor, and got almost nothing but complaints. Our statistics showed that only about 10% of people used the base for anything other than a quick door to teleport around the rest of the world.
All of that is one reason we've been hesitant in doing it over again. We tried a new method with Hideouts in Champions, which seemed to be met with moderate success, but took a lot of work to build.
I've heard nothing about redoing ship interiors. My personal feeling is that there should be little customization on layout. If you have an Intrepid, you get an Intrepid class layout. If you have a Defiant, you get a Defiant class layout. But I think players should have control over a few different overall styles, textures, colors, and lighting. So all Galaxy Class ships would have the same layout, but you could choose from TNG style (beige, brightly lit) or 2409 style, or random style A, B or C. etc.
However, that is just my personal feelings on the matter, no work is being done on Interiors at the moment, and havent heard of it being added to the schedule at all. Plus, all of that would be a lot of work.
