    You know what I think would be the bomb @Malware a few icons for the toolbar for a cockpit in the toolbar config menu. One that says "Run Script" and another that says "Stop Script" When pressed by the player they pass the argument "run" and "start" respectively. Now we have a safe interface for players to interact with the script in a minimal way and possibly allow for some more complexity and interaction without breaking any of the safety protocols... I'm assuming that an argument could be passed to cockpit script this way...

    @Ronin1973 LCD scripts have no arguments, no configs, nothing. All you can do is change a couple of colors... :(

    An LCD drawing script written for the programmable block, sure. They can have arguments. But the built in LCD scripts, nope. I do plan to do some interaction experiments with more complex mods down the range though, it'll be interesting to see how far I can extend them.

    All together everyone. Say it with me:

    You can do it MAL. You can do it MAL
    Keep it up. Don't stop till we get a compass script. USE THE FORCE

    Without the ability to interact... I don't know how possible this is... but an automatic natural gravity aligner would be nice. There are a few out there. But when using sub-grids or attached via landing gear, the attitude of your ship tends to drift. It would be nice just to click a button and have it autolevel. Of course, the logic of how and when to apply the autolevel might be a bit tricky with multiple cockpits. Also, a semi-automatic mode where .rotating, or .rolling suspends the auto level for a few seconds until no more input is detected.

    Your ship needs an attitude adjustment? I blame rap music.

    One thing the Automatic LCDs 2 script isn't able to do, that would be useful, is to display to is display what an assembler is assembling or a refinery is refining.

    We could watch movies on a control station or cockpit screen. Yeah! That's the ticket.
