Faction mates need to be able to paint the same grid

The new implementation of the anti-griefing system disallows players to paint grids they don't own, but it overlooks factions.

If the owner of the grid has set it to share with faction, other members of that faction should be able to also paint that grid.

Difference here is, we recognize it isn't a bug; we're saying that this feature needs revised, as its very annoying. It also causes problems for some mods, for example on the server I play on, if I want to remove a section of a station with the "Build and Repair System Mod", I have to color the blocks I want removed. I cannot do this, as we didn't build the station perfectly 50/50

Please fix this.

At least set it as an option for the server.

It is really annoying when we are 6 people building a base together.

If its shared ownership with the faction. Please let us paint!

I can not believe this is not been rectified yet. As for the coding, this should be a simple fix if player entity equals faction group Guild whatever you want to call it Grant's capability of paint or build repair.

For example, I've just logged into the server Build a ship also tried using hologram projector same outcome the ship does not belong to me belongs to other user in the faction. Everyone says the workaround is to change it to nobody, the problem is if the owner of the ship is not on the server your on able to do this so unfortunately at this point in time to ship I have just created I am unable to paint or change ownership.

Please at least make it so that faction owners can give members permission to paint.

This needs to be reverted back immediately. It is just very frustrating, and shouldn't require base to be set to "Nobody" to be able to paint this. Especially if on a deidcated server. The whole original change was to prevent griefing, but if faction mates are griefing then they deserved to be kicked or given a warning. They deserve it. Or if the idea was to prevent the Shift+Ctrl click to paint ALL blocks, then just disable that from faction members so that it no one can just paint an entire grid.

Ideally if a block is shared you should be able to paint it, or it could be an option on a grid-per-grid basis

Guess it'll be better to make this feature switchable, strict personally by team mates. Each player in fraction will decide to allow someone to paint his grids. Think it's not so hard to deploy in current version of game.
