So I'm in kind of a space sim mood, and I've been playing a lot of from the depths and watching star wars channels, so I want to play a good 4x or similar game, but I want to be able to design my own ships in it. I know there are a few out there like that (Galciv 2 for instance) But I want my designs to matter, and be able to control (not 1st person necessarily, but have influence on the ship's movement, fire, etc) the ships in combat. I've got a standby for that, Stardrive, but it has a lot of problems, outside the amazing design system. Other than stardrive, I really don't know other sims that have both. I've heard of Star Ruler, but haven't tried it yet, and I think Galciv 3 is similar to 2, with cinematic style battles. any suggestions?

Master of Orion 2. It's old, though. I've never found another space sim that works quite as well.

True. That one is quite good. even with gun facings and similar. Honestly, the only thing that turns me off that one is I like to be able to design the looks as well. Still, probably one of the best options out there.

As in, equip it with different weapons, armor, etc, or the whole thing, with visuals and end the whole nine yards?

Equip with different weapons at a minimum, the whole nine would be preferable though.

How about Endless Space? Cant say anything for the new one but I remember in the first there was ship design and I think you had control over battle tactics. Its been a long time since Ive played it so I cant remember a lot of the details. Theres also Sins of Solar Empire (not sure which is the more "complete" version) but I think thats more Real Time. I dont know if theres much ship design but I think there are a ton of mods for it too. The Star Trek one jumps to mind. Might be worth a look at on Steam anyway.
