Can we automate things (and other things)?

    Hello,

    I was taking a look on the below video (wonderful):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nW7rH3nYrNE

    A
    nd I was wondering about automate things. For example, I'm building a space station. It has a hangar, and I created a door which opens and closes, due to a rotor. But, to make it runs I need to use the terminal in a reactor which is near. Can we automate these things, and/or, for example, to create "switches"? In the above video, do you think the creator has gone to reactors, accessing its terminals, in order to detach parts of the ship, make things start running, etc?

    Another doubt I have (and it's shown on the above video) is about that "panels", in the ships, on its cockpits. How to create them?

    How to create that cockpits with panels, etc?

    P.S.: can we also have translucid materials? :)

    This exists multiple times in the suggestions section of the forums....

    I'm personally against the idea of automation in SE.
    Remote control, yes.
    Automation?
    Only on a limited scale...

    Just my personal opinion.

    Understood. But even remote control it's impossible, right now, isn't it? :)

    Interesting. But I really can't imagine how can we build something remotely controlable with the items we have at our disposal.

    The ability to remote control consoles would be great, really hope it's planned.

    No automation available at this point. Cockpit view is the standard small ship cockpit. Ships menu can be accessed from any connected block yellow control panel.

    Are you meaning that I can only place cockpits over yellow blocks? :)

    Nope, just that you can access the ship menu from any "yellow control" in any connected block. Cockpit is like any other block and can be placed almost anywhere. (Ill try to explain better next time. Hope this was more clear.)

    You mean when you aim at an interactable object and its highlighted in yellow.

    This menu you mention, are you referring to that one we can access when pressing "K" at a reactor? :)

    I made a great confusion, here, when reading "connected block".
