An Issue with grid conversion in multiplayer

Under Consideration

In order to convert a grid to ship or station, you have to own the entire grid. This poses a problem who build ships together in multiplayer on many occasions.

Example: If you build a ship from projector with the welder ship of someone else in your faction, you will not be able to convert this new grid to a ship on your own, even is all blocks are shared in the faction.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch a multiplayer game or join a server

2. Have a grid built by multiple people OR build a grid with someones welder ship and share all blocks to faction

3. Try to convert it

4. You should find that the option is greyed out for either everyone, or all but one player

Seems I kind of forgot to include the actual idea, although it may have been obvious: Enable faction members to convert grids

i would be careful allowing faction members to convert grids between static and dynamic, it could be used as a griefing tactic, maybe only the Faction Leaders and above can be allowed to do this?
