I don't know if it's been mentioned, but here's an idea to think about. You know that "Second-U" mod? How it's able to create a duplicate of your character? Would it be at all possible to push the idea further and create a mod that lets you make an NPC clone of another one of your character slots? It'd allow us to truly have control over NPC customization, and if combined with the "Job Offers" mod, there ya go, custom crewmembers with your choice of name, race, gender, hairstyle, etc. A number of people, myself included, have wanted to see more ways to customize NPCs, especially ones we want to recruit. "Create-a-Friend" is nice for creating guards and equipping them with specific weapons n' stuff, but they're just sorta... pre-picked selections, like the first type always being the same look for the race you're spawning. I bet people wouldn't mind if all they could do was pick the name of their spawned NPCs though.
