Rotating Hardpoints

Implemented as of Update 01.009.007--

 

There should a way to connect two blocks together in a way that would allow them to be rotated. An example of this would be the side thrusters on the Serenity (from firefly) which can be rotated 180 degrees to allow the ship to fly forwards, backwards, and to hover.

More blocks (rounded, cylinder...)

This should be a very easy to make feature but will result in much better designs.

More construction block types like:

 

Round angle: just a 1/4 circle angle block

 

Cylinder: a cylindrical block

 

Round corner: a 1/4 sphere

 

Concave version of the above

 

 

Post your new block ideas in the comments. The more block types, the more awesome designs!!!

Suspension block

After the wheels update I noticed how breakable and rigid the vehicles are. Then I noticed how breakable and rigid is everything you build. I think some kind of suspension block, in various sizes, should resolve this problem and smooth up every automated machine, landing gear, vehicle etc that you build. It also looks nice and avoids everything from breaking instantly when you do something wrong. Examples: - Automated ...more »

General "Game Concept" direction

Hi everyone. I came here to bring up a topic that I feel will be important for the whole future of Space Engineers. Nowadays, there is a shitload of voxel based games on the market, each one more or less based on the original success of Minecraft. But here's the problem : Minecraft has done it all. Not in the mechanics, but in the whole concept. You are dropped in an infinite world and you get to think of what to ...more »

Find & Replace Color

Ever spent an hour painting your newly created ship in green, white, and black only to wonder if maybe it would look better in a Slightly Darker Black? I propose a feature to allow you to replace only the color of certain tiles. For example I would repaint all of the BLACK tiles only with my new color, without having to spend another hour repainting everything one at a time and having to remove blocks to repaint certain ...more »

Small-scale Design of Blocks

The ability to design a "custom" block by adding smaller versions of components and other building blocks to the main base block. Through an interface. This would allow players to add several miniature components to every face of the block and to build intricate mechanical "devices" that do not require a lot of space. For example, starting with the small light armor block as the base, you can add an even smaller version ...more »

Mass Recoloring Feature for creative mode

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).
