    We all would really like to have compound blocks, but I have lost my hopes at ever seeing them in SE.

    After playing with Sektan's Interior Wall blocks I really miss some simple blocks that would remove majority of the problems reqarding everything taking up whole block space.

    Armor Block with embedded LCD screen
    Armor Block with embedded text panel
    Armor Block with embedded button panel
    Armor Block with embedded interior light
    Armor Block with embedded air vent

    It wouldn't even have to be complex new block, but just those things embeded in the normal block on one side. They could have the same menu as their normal counterparts and require same components + what armor block require.

    Why? Because then these wouldn't take whole block of space in front of them, which is one of the most annoying things in this game when trying to build something.

    If we're not going to see compound blocks, then this would be an absolutely marvelous addition to the vanilla blocks. Although having them all have them on one side could make fabrication annoying.

    I like the idea of having them as a seperate block if possible. :)

    Oh, I meant new blocks of course, but not new models to make adding them easier. So 5 new armor blocks like those that I listed, being normal armor blocks but having the model and functionality of interior light for example on one side of the block.

    Or placing a light/whatever on an armor block could ALTER the block? The "basic" build would be an armor block, with extra stuff for the extra item, and as you weld it, it turns into a different block completely?

    Vents are kind of hard though, you need a conveyor connection for that. There's a mod for a conveyor/vent block, though, which works great.

    Yes indeed we all have gotten to the point where some things aren't realizable because small things like lights or cameras, take up a whole block!
