    Some simpler automatic retracting landing gear blocks (Star Wars style) for SVs & smaller CVs could really improve look & feel in the game, but small and mid sized loading ramps (1x1, 2x2, and 3x3 blocks with 90, 45 and maybe 30 degrees) are really missing from game!!!

    I'm sure they are coming 'cos that two things looks to me possible to program in current 'game block system' with some hard work :)

    One more thing, is it possible to make landing gears that will hide if ship is far from ground or landing zones?

    Yep, those things are huge. It's about time the builders get some love too :)

    "- Cubic block-selection: copy, paste, cut and delete an area in all three dimension! We even plan to have a temporary repository for your copied areas, so you can easily paste them over and over to your structures and vessels without having to copy them each time again!"


    You Absolute HEROS!!!!!!!

    That would be sweet yeah

    Unfortunately that would require some changes to the sensors so not sure if and when....

    Really glad to see you guys are giving the textures and texturing side of the game some much needed love. Looking forward to seeing the new textures you come up with!

    Keep at it.

    Yes, this is possible, but maybe will not be added in 7.0

    So long as there are eventually vehicles with wheels/tracks, I'll be happy.

    All new exciting infos. Can't wait for alpha 7 :)
    Those new/improved textures look amazing. Hours upon hours upon hours will be wasted building cool ships. :-D

    I'm very happy to see depth on new textures and all the creative features coming. Copy blocks and paste will be a game changer for builders alone. Thank you to listen to our requests. :)

    I would love to Have a "Space Base" Block that can Warp
    Then we could Dock our CVs to it and travel around
    -Can't have mining drills
    -Can't Enter Atmospheres
    -But can have limited amount of Engines to traverse the Area when it gets to its destination and for Warping
    -Can have Furnaces etc


    I think the Cryogen lockers should be places people can get in and logout and if a CV moves(space base) they respawn inside of them wherever their faction goes.
    -Because being left in space when people move is a Game breaker
    -Living on a Large CV is the only way to play the game like that

    As far as the new building stuff it's all great but Most servers put limits on Class ships (Maybe optimisation is something)
    -People trying to run servers on old Machines
    -Need to change the Recommended Specs
    -Maybe add recommended specs for Server machines

    The Bike-
    -For the love of Pete have any of you rode a real dirt bike?

    Pvp-
    -Still bad lagshot
    -Why does Window grates have 1200hp and a Steel block is only 500hp
    -Alot of other blocks have odd HP ranges also

    Modding
    -I plead the 5th

    Factions
    -When you join a Faction you lose control of all your ships (nothing is personal anymore)
    -They can kick you out and steal your ships and all your stuff
    -Unless they give you Admin and then its the samething but the shoe is on the other foot
    -This is the biggest Troll of them all

    Did i mention you are still the Best Game developers i have enjoyed working with (as a Community) so far
    -You listen
    -You interact with us
    -You dont see this game as "yours" but more as "Ours"
    -I think more Game Developers should learn from you and your team

    Can't wait to see what you have for Alpha 7
    I hope there is still surprises
