Have you just built a fairly large mining craft and want another to start a fleet? Don't want to spend the time building an identical one from scratch? Yeah, me neither, which is where blueprints come in. Whilst in a ship, you should be able to save a blueprint of the ship under a chosen name. You can then simply open a menu and spawn in a blueprinted ship at any time. This could work differently in creative and survival ...more »
When in creative mode, building ships in close proximity (or particularly small ships built inside a hanger) is risky, either during normal editing, or panic clicking when a subsection breaks off I often find I accidentally delete (or even add) blocks to nearby ships. I think it would be useful to be able to "Lock" and "Unlock" a ship for editing. They can still be at risk of damage, but whilst locked you wouldn't be ...more »
I like to build ships in creative to see what they will look like. When i play multiplayer, i don't want to leave the game just to build in creative, just to come back and project it.
But with the new projector block, have an option to free build like in creative. This way, it would also be possible to add symmetry to survival.
A button in the projector menu that can be accessed using creative mode that immediately completes the projected blueprint, if nothing is in the way. It would definitely save a lot of time and hassle for those of us who want to easily generate an armada of awesome ships.
Is it possible to create a tool to pick the color and change all the blocks with same color value to another one? It would be very helpful, when u have a big scale model and during the design process you change your mind about chosen colors, or you just want to experiment. Useful would also be the ability to select the affected block type (e.g. only armor blocks).
If you want to build a symetric bigger spacecraft in Space Engineers it is hard to do this in survival, you can simply do this in creative but not in survival. Of course it would take the more rescources to do this in survival, when you mirror the sides. The same goes for the painting. Instead of grinding the block and replacing it, it would be nice to simply change the color like in creative since the color istnt something ...more »
