Simple Versioning System During Ship Design/Save as?
« on: May 17, 2018, 10:05:16 PM »
How do folks that do a lot of creation in the ship editor approach periodic saving and versioning of their designs?

I am trying to save each version/variation of a ship design (e.g. draft 1, draft 2,etc.), but the only way I can do it successfully is to exit the game and then utilize Windows Explorer to find the user folder and manually edit the names of the ship files OUTSIDE of the Avorion program.  Is there still not a simple way to "save as" within the program?  With so many ship designs out there, I must be missing some simple approach that everyone else is using to accomplish this.

There is a "Saved Ships" section bottom right of the building menu (the one on the left side of the screen).

There it auto saves ships and you can also save it yourself or upload it to the workshop.

Sadly that does not let you rename saved ships (yet).
