So I've been wanting to do this for a while. It's easy enough to come up with massive lists of things that we want added to the Foundry, however the Devs have stated before that adding assets isn't as easy a task as we would expect. To that end, I want to find out what my fellow Foundry authors think is the highest priority asset that need to be added to the Foundry. So my question is, if a dev asked you for 5 individual assets to add to the Foundry, what would you choose?
Before you answer, I need to lay a couple ground rules:
It can be any specific asset (detail object, structure, costume, NPC group, ship variant, or map) currently in the game. If it's a map, it can be any map currently in game, as it appears in game.
It needs to be a specific asset. No groups of assets. I can't just say the Jupiter Uniforms, as the Jupiter uniforms are actually 5 uniforms + the Vet variant. Same goes for something like more interior parts. You have to list them individually. If it's an NPC group, it has to be a specific group such as Tholian Captain Ground Group, not just the Tholian faction. If it appears as an individual item in the list it should be good.
It has to currently exist in-game. The only exception might be something allowing the lines of a new building block or a new generic map, but don't go nuts. It has to be something a Dev could quickly make.
Don't skip an item you want because someone else listed it. Duplicate items are actually a good thing as it shows that said item is more highly requested.
Assets, not features.
You are totally allowed to change your mind. If someone comes up with a better assets, feel free to update your own list in support of said asset.
So why all these rules, this is stupid. Well, I'm giving you the chance (although only hypothetically) to chose what is more important. It's not about coming up with the longest list, but what would you choose to add with a limited amount of dev time. It's sort of a challenge.
So without further adieu, I'll get things started:
My Top 5 Most Wanted Assets
Ship Corridor Ceiling
Ship Corridor Carpet Floor Square Block
U.S.S. Dewitt Interior
Ship Wall with Red Alert
So with limited time and dev resources, what are the 5 assets you think Cryptic should add to the Foundry?

We have the Facility 4028 in the foundry, which is a nice map, but we don't have the sliding doors, the horizontal and vertical forcefield they use in the mission. The assets currently in the foundry are not made for this map.
1) Some method of improved lighting for custom interiors.
2) Transporter Pad
3) A ramp that is a plane instead of having a block bottom.
4) The opening door from the Tuffli freighter (as well as other non-starfleet opening doors).
5) A ceiling/floor more appropriate for a starship or starbase.
