tbh - I agree with this - and IMO option 3 would likely be the closest to that, allowing for more focus on building the game mechanics and less on a complex setting.

We need to settle on a setting and theme. In an effort to avoid any known Intellectual Property, it'd be best if we design our own universe (Though, we can take a great deal of inspiration from various Sci-Fi sources...)
That said, I have two suggestions from my portfolio - and one from the modern world.
Suggestion 1 - Beyond Infinity: BI was a series I ran many many moons ago, set in a universe where gods, and mythological creatures roamed free. Zeus was the king of the planet Olympus and ruled the Alliance of Light for millenia, protecting it from the Shadow of Hades, and the shadow (literal shadow people) of the Hadin.
Suggestion 2 - A world I'm currently writing a book about: I'm writing a Novel based in a Tolkein-like fantasy world, but some 400 years in the future. So it's Lord of the Rings, in space.
Suggestion 3 - Space Force: We can use the modern world as a template, keep things Human within the base game, and explore the militarization of space some 80 years or so from now.
Personally, I feel Suggestion 3 is the most scalable canvas of the three suggestions, allowing for the most modability, without stepping on any possible IP's toes. - but, I'm open to other suggestions and ideas
Bottom line, we need a theme!

This is a written up idea bubble of how this thing can/will/does work (In my head at least). When the Configurator is installed, it will replace your default RPG-X shortcuts
and open when you launch the game.
// represents a tab at the top of the window.
## represents a button to press

At the bottom of the window, set static - there will be a ##Launch RPG-X button. If any of the information above isn't filled in, it will pre-load a set of defaults (in most cases, RPG-X defaults - in the case of the rank set, It'll set the Klingon rank (WIP) as secondary and DS9 as primary) OR It will load in the previously loaded options.
Maybe I should add in a ##Refresh button, to remove any configurations that are in your RPG-X install, and return everything back to default
