... and maybe similar could be done here.

https://www.planetside2.com/player-studio

basically, players themselves design content in exchange for part of the profit if said item is accepted and added to the game.

this is one of the most blatantly obvious ways i can think of for adding new cosmetic items to sto's zen store, in a way that would take a dev 30 seconds of playtesting rather than 3 days staring at at autocad/maya/etc.

initially such could be done here for new ship skins, then tailor items/packs, armor & weapon skins and possibly even new maps eventually.

heck, initial submitions could be fixing texture/goemetry/clipping errors on existing items...

Nice idea, but why stop at c-store stuff? Players being able to make their own art assets would add a lot of appeal to the foundry. Imagine, players not only being able to make their own alien races, but design unique costume pieces for them, unique gear, unique ships, unique architecture, and perhaps custom weapon effects.

Maybe hold the occasional competition to get them into the game proper.
Exploration suggestions thread - give it a read

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'

I protest the removal of exploration clusters

indeed so. but "own alien race" outside of humanoid frame aliens would rely on new animations etc being added. something not needed when even the old character animations as clunky as they are thanks to animation locks.
