Well, actually the trains code can be easily adapted to any kind of
transportation system. I changed all the references to  "trains" to
"Flying Dragon" and "Wood Worm", so you could easily translate it to
"Space Arc" or "Corellian Corvette" and you'd be set.

You should also rephrase most of the communications commands (it is kinda
dumb shouting and be heard two planets away..:)

You can do this already, first than anything see what can be done with
what's existing, renaming the commands and the system, but using it as it
is already, this could be done with the current alignment system of

Blasters would be harder, unless you implement missiles or something and
the "scan" command (in some way)



What does "prolly" means? Exactly..:) (Koepke: I am in Mexico..:)
