I only watched a couple of minutes of the youtube video, but I think it has custom ship design?
I feel like this added complexity will actually detract from the game. In FTL each ship is unique and sort of like its own puzzle. If you allow users to build their own ships everyone will work towards the one "optimal" design. Like a tower defense game, the interior design will be sort of impractical and ugly with winding corridors to force the boarding creatures into where you want them.
One of the key features that adds replay value to FTL is unlocking the new ships, which can be a very involved quest that takes several attempts. It took me ages to unlock the mantis ship, and some I never unlocked before I put the game down.
