My idea revolves around a tool specifically for applying decals to ships, maybe some kind of paint spray gun? Although, liquids and gases would not work in space! The tool would add a decal to your ship starting from the bottom left block of the decal. Left clicking once would apply a holographic decal to the ship. This will allow players to check that it is big enough and fits how you want it to, etc. If you're in creative ...more »
This is an alternative solution to the problem set out here, but it also provides other benefits as well. http://spaceengineerssurgestionbox.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Renewable-Recources/45617-26587 The problem in the above suggestion is that resources will eventually run out, and "renewable" ones wouldn't really be easy to implement (where physics is concerned).

Like you can set who owns the ship already, just add like ...more »
So that you can have better communications and hacking(remotely)
Maintain Antenna as is.
But the beacon, except for lower power consumption, is useless. Have the beacon be a faction only signal.
Have a feature to automatically set a ship to be shared with you faction, im honestly sick of spawning a ship with a friend for it to only be annihilated before i get a chance to get in it and change the factions.
An ownership timeout for multiplayer servers option would enable a more serious survival mode gameplay. There would be an adjustable period of time, where if the server is running the game (not paused) that if a player does not log in during this time frame, all of their item ownership should be surrendered to 'nobody'.
