I've mentioned this before but would it be possible to get some more slots for textures? Custom or otherwise. Or even just let us put custom textures into all the slots (except material). If there is some worry about people flooding the game with textures you could always impose a file size limit to them.
On the material texture, could we get the ability to pick which version to use. Because I noticed when you go into the full texture list there are three styles of material textures (box, squares, and X) Could we have the option to pick the style it shows up as? So all the ships don't have to use the basic 'box' style.
Also I've noticed a lack of fabric/carpet textures. Such as something we could use for chair cushons, beds and such. (I guess in a pinch we could use like the snow texture colored to look like fabric)
