Bind export to current tech levels
« on: July 22, 2012, 03:33:56 AM »
One of the more annoying parts of the game, especially when you come back to it after a while is that you have to hold a lot of information in your head regarding which of your designs are meant to be imported with what levels of technology. Ships can be imported as soon as all their components are unlocked, but often designs are optimized for higher levels or won't run at all with such low leveled components.

I suggest an option or check box or what have you when exporting a ship design to set the design's related tech requirements to the levels you have when exporting. That way, in subsequent games it won't allow you to import the design with low tech levels for which it wasn't designed, and the error will handily remind you when it was intended for.
