Area Power Controller (APC) + power cables
Area power Controller- makes it so powering blocks requires some thinking, but isn't actively annoying.
The idea is that you run power cables around your ship and then connect a cable split to an APC, which then delivers power to all blocks in a specified radius.
Could allow a cable port to things like merge blocks, rotors, etc. so power can still be transferred through them.
The way power currently is, it is incredibly easy to just slap things onto your grid and expect them to be powered... This is an ENGINEERING game, make me consider what, where, and how I place things.
