Fundamental flaws with Starfield may never get fixed, but I do REALLY like the ship building aspect.

I'm of the opposite opinion but I am honestly glad you are enjoying it.

To me, the ship building reminds me of Snap-Tite models. You aren't building a ship, you are simply assembling ships from a fairly limited set of pre-built modules plus some disheartening restrictions even during the assembly. I wasn't looking for a Stormworks level of building or systems simulation but I did want more depth. A lot more depth. Why can't I have multiple power plants? Why can't I extrude points on the ship pieces to make the shapes I want? Then have the interior conform to those shapes appropriately? I had a lot of "why can't I" questions. On top of that, the lack of disconnected parts that sometimes clip inside of other parts not being highlighted was frustrating. I also absolutely hated how the camera worked in ship building. It was sluggish and snapped to fixed points frequently. Points I didn't want the camera to be at. Why is every piece essentially just a square or a rectangle? Where are the conformal curved surfaces or spherical shapes?

I just felt very frustrated with it and limited by it. If you're going to tell me I can build a ship, then let me actually build a ship, damn it!
