Both the front of the cockpit raising if not obstructed, and then a player animation for getting in and or an animation for getting in via the door on the back.
In big ships it would be nice to place some seats that do no allow steering the ship but only allow certain tasks like using some weapons, open doors etc
In this way a big ship is realisticly used by many players or a co pilot solving different tasks.
I think this should be very easy to implement.
Be able to use ALT to look around in the cockpit and axcess the termanals. Example to toggle landing gear on/off change teh faction of the ship, turn lights on/off...
I think this would be useful for making larger small ships, instead of just using the canopy style cockpit. Personally I hate the idea of building armour blocks over my cockpit when making armoured ships/vehicles, I would like to have a seat style one that I can walk to inside. I think having glass panels and Control Stations/Flight Seat style cockpits for small ships would allow for a much more versatile range of designs. ...more »
Give programable block ablility to read keys pressed in cockpit, flight seat...etc.
So players could use keypress to controll systems via programable block.
keyboard or at least: W, A, S, D, Space, Alt, Ctrl...
also addition of cycles would be good
It would be nice and realistic the possibility to put on or put off helmet inside of small ship cockpit.
Various styles of cockpits for smaller ships for example a stretched out version of the current one (3 wide, 6 long and 3 high should do) or more dome-like ones. mainly because my small ships look a bit odd with the current square one.
We all know that Space Engineers has TONS of features. But who has ever commented on the beauty of the inventory screen? The UI needs a really big overhaul, and I think I know how to do it. It works like this: There are different UIs for every different setting. One for inside a cockpit, one for helmet, and one for when you take your helmet off. Cockpit: This view will display all the speed, ship health status, energy ...more »
I have noticed there are 'ports' textures on either side of the cockpits, it would be nice if you could attach conveyors/tubes to those ports and use the cockpit itself as a "connect anywhere" conveyor block to the rest of the ship.
I wish there was possibility to respawn in Cockpit AFTER you select specified Cockpit's checkbox in Control Panel, because: * first medical room may be expensive in some respawn ships, * it would be nice to not lost your first ship along with your hardly gathered loot, because you died in some stupid unpredictable way (like collision bugs) or server had been restarted before you managed to gather required resources for ...more »
