There's a cool piece of software for mapping out your thoughts.  Its different than most other information storage systems I've ever seen.  The software is call "The Brain" (http://www.thebrain.com).  I'm using their free version, however it allows a PUBLIC web-copy to be made and available for others to browse.  I've created my plans for my particular Starship Simulator LBE and have recorded down quite a bit of it into this Brain software.  

Although I've been successfully self-employed for 25+ years, this LBE project is more a labor of love than a true business model for me.  This being the case, I don't mind sharing my LBE plan and business model with whomever wishes to see it.  I just want to see something close to my vision manifest itself in the 'real world'...  ;-)

Here's a link to my Brain:  http://webbrain.com/brainpage/brain/D95E9ECE-BEE6-C920-F42B-2CF6D05FAFC1  

It's by no means complete, but I work on it fairly regularly and invite suggestions, criticism or any other comments on it or my plan overall..

Eventually I'll be looking for investors and collaborators, but for now, its just a plan......

How are you planning to integrate the non game elements like a cargo hold and probes into the game, how many ships will there be?

The honest answer is simply; I don't know...   Most of these other elements are really only values in a database.. 

Things like probes have been discussed on these forums since the beginning.  I expect that eventually many of the things that the community believes are good for the game will be implemented in some fashion over time.

The fact that there is a robust scripting language that is continually being expanded and a mod community that is stretching the boundaries way beyond what the base game currently offers, gives me confidence that over time, all is possible.. ;-)  Therefore....

I should plan out what I WANT, rather than what is currently offered.  I'll hopefully just trim-back to what's available at the time of launch.

How many ships there will be is a question that is MUCH more grounded in what the software will allow.    I'd LOVE to see a ~10 station capital ship or two, running around with 6 one-man fighters plus a couple of 5-station cruisers working either as pvp or co-op in a single game environment.  

Having ships of various sizes also allows the LBE portion to accommodate various group sizes as well.
