Right, don't know if this is the right section for this or not, but..
Here's my idea. Most people, Dev's included are unhappy with the current implementation of the skill system.
Frankly, I agree with them.
However, this idea popped into my head the other day and should help those people concerned about not being able to use more then one ship of a certain kind, or being able to cross train effectively, while leaving most of the skill system relatively unaffected. This idea removes no skills, adds no skills, but simply changes the ranks. point distribution, and how skill points are spent. Most of the annotations on the image are self explanitory, so. Yeah. Just my two cents worth.
Keep in mind it is a big ugly, I'm not the best when it comes to GUI (re)design
