So I was thinking, and as mentioned before, fighters should be built of smaller parts (Custom modeled parts) and be put together for a greater variation, and differations of performance based on parts and pilots. Also They should be built in a a factory GUI and use redpower microblocks building HUD. Parts could also be rotated and mirrored on the other side as one would like, and options of amount of pilots going from 0-4 etc. And parts included would be wings, weapons, normal blocks, engines, canopys, cockpits, VTOL stuff, life support systems, landing gear, inverted wings, folding wings, thrust nozzlers, tails, and stuff like from KSP. (Kerbal Space Program) and same thing with dropships, bombers, and gunships.

IIRC we've already discussed fighters. Twice.

Yes.
That part has been done.

"Done", however, is a little extreme to call it. Let's just say it was discussed multiple times, like many other things, and there have no definite plans been made, like for many other things.
Except that it absolutely has to include modular parts, maybe, but that's about it..

It is done in the sense that several of the ideas in the list have been circled.
But I mean, that's the hard part, right?

It appears that once again, I was left out of important details...

That is because during the time it was discussed, you happened to spend 90% of what little activity you had on the ship-building section.
You propably even missed the roleplay.

Not to worry. Not one line of code has been written for that. And I am nowhere close to starting on it, either.

There is not much to discuss, I already summarised it all when I presented the idea for the first time a few years ago. Ships are made out of modules , each having a unique mesh so that when they are all combined together you get more or less unique fighters. Each module is edited by the player.

When a player edits a module a window pops out with a grid (like your inventory grid just with the general shape the module has). Inside that grid you put armor blocks, cables, engines, power, everything the ship needs to run and in this way you decide the ship's stats. As a result you end up with a unique shape and unique stats.

You can also use it to make other things such as torpedoes for example or guns. If we look at a torpedo it will be one module that is a quite narrow cylinder, means you will have to think about what's really important for your torpedo to function.

If you want to dive into the topic any further it is necessary for you to begin programming it. The only thing that can be discussed at a level of discussion only is the mechanic in general, for the rest you need to work with it to feel it and to make sure you don't miss any specifics.
