Munder posted an idea in MW 70. To pull from that a little and add a little extra I have the following idea.
Eships are based on families only.
6 player family
8 ships a day
48 total available.
Just like you suggested, we can do it like defense station, everyone can fund the area and make the ships, however only the leader can distribute them to players.
So say after a day your family has all 48 ships.
They can have 1 player send them all.
This would change how estage works, AND add a flare for new ways to do things. Races wouldn’t need specific ops, ect.
So it can fix an issue we currently have, plus add a little spice.
Yeah it can have some flaws, but I think the reward is much better than the risk.–
