I am not sure if this is possible, but I figured I'd bring the discussion here.

At the moment, the Fox has a good deal of systems, all of which brinh varying levels of risk if they are not running properly. The CAW even properly displays warnings and failures related to them. However, as far as I know, at the moment they will not ever randomly fail or fault (unless improperly turned on/off). Obviously the game isnt feature complete, but personally I think that having some way to "force" a random component or system to fail woul be a great way to learn about the ship, and get better at troubleshooting it. Is there a way to cause this to happen currently? If not, could it be accomplished through modding, or is it a planne feature?

Even something like a bindable key that, when pressed, will fail one of a number of possible systems at random. It then falls on you to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it.
