Saved Games

I was thinking it'd be very useful for a number of reasons to be able to save the game state of a mission in mission script XML format. This could replace the start block for a mission script, so if run would effectively resume play from that point in time.

There have been talk of larger-scale playgrounds like the TSN RP Universe and the Artemis Galaxy which could benefit from having save scripts to analyse at the end of a battle in order to make global changes seamlessly based on individual missions.

This would undoubtedly be useful for creating longer chained campaigns as well, knowing the precise weaponry and energy state of the player ships as well as what remains of enemy forces could be useful for a sense of continuity in the next game in the series.
