It has been a long time since I posted here but I thought I'd give an observation I noticed about the last few screenshots we had. In the three starship pictures showing off the starship customization I noticed a certain similarity in the components. Or at least their placement. And so using this revelation, I formed a possible method they may be using for their starship creator. Below is a chart displaying the possible method they will be using?

It would probably work quite a lot like Spore. At least the character created anyway. When you start the game you'll start with a tier 1 class ship. It will be a small ship consisting of only three components. The main body, the nacelle pylons, and of course the nacelles. Each component will have the ability to be switched out for many different selections. Body styles, pylons styles, and nacelles styles. Once you get a high enough rank you'll upgrade to a tier 2 ship. It will consist of a body, disk, nacelle pylons, and nacelles. And of course more components will be added the hired tier you go. As far as I can estimate there will probably only be three tiers, with the third one adding a neck component. But cryptic is full of surprises even their name is cryptic.
