I'm sorry to say this, but they are. As someone who has been modding all kinds of games for years and has used all kinds of tools, I have to say that these are a big dissapointment.
They are very limited and feel more like "my babies first mission-maker tool" rather than an actual tool.
I experimented with every option, trying to find hidden menus and possibilities, but to no avail.
Something as basic as switching IFF or giving ships initial orders is not present. Setting up the strength of a opponent (trying to make a boss fight)? Non-existent.
