Just for fun, this is what happens when your coding goes horribly wrong.

Why do work yourself, when you can write a program that will do the work for you.

Haha, this can also be done without coding. Simply click on the normal HQ, open the ships tab (in editor), then click "Add Ship to Inventory" a few times.

Just thought I'd share that little tidbit.

LOL, you can even move the big blue command module around, I'll definitely find out how to put that on custom ships, it's gonna be great. It seems like a special module that isn't avaliable in the editor (nothing interesting there), but doesn't collide with other modules when you place it.

This could lead to people creating custom HQ's for their maps, thanks for the tip.

Cool, but does any of your ships have 4 HQs? :D

If you are wondering how on Earth did I do this, check out my Custom ship builder (shameless self-promotion FTW), I'll upload version 0.1.3 later tonight where you will be able to do this as well.
