I think after we get a few long requested features like encapsulated fuel rods, composite/tapered barrels, distributed firing, lower maximum sizes on every module, paint, etc. I think he should focus on a marketing campaign. We could hold a competition to make the best screenshots and videos that could then be used for trailers and stuff.
So I had an idea... I've been a long time fan of Scifi, and got into COADE from Atomic Rockets, reading up on what is accurate and not accurate in different SciFi shows/movies. 1. I don't think those who hear about COADE know how much COADE has been updated, and how much it is improved. Maybe COADE should be advertised as a frequently updated Alpha that is constantly being updated. 2. It would be very cool to try and model ships from popular shows like the Expanse, or something else.
