Joined just for this. But I want to ask two questions:
1. How is damage going to be handled? Are we going to need to watch for listing, flooding, flash fires, magazine detonations, and other dangerous situations?
2. Exactly how much control will we have over things like hull shape, superstructure, armor placement, and weapon placement are we going to have and how will it affect gameplay?
Edit: A third question, what kind of game are you aiming to make this? Online only? Single player only? Single player but with online skirmish? Other?
Further Edit: I know these don't look like they have much to do with the thread topic, but I'm sure anyone here can tell you how important these things are to capital ships and combat between them...
