Give some love to the sound block!
The sound block has been in the game for a long time now, but is of questionable use due to 1) the limited number of sounds available for it to play and 2) its inability (the last time I checked) to be meaningfully changed by the programming block. An IDEAL feature enhancement would be a Text-to-Speech capability (human quality speech not necessary) and the ability to specify tones or musical notes in addition to a wider variety of stock sounds.

Even the current sounds in the soundblock feel more like a placeholder, most of them from Miner Wars if I remember correctly.

The Sound Block needs to be updated for sure. There are bigger concerns for now with the main engine still being tweaked, so I don't mind waiting, but it feels like the Sound Block was only half implemented. Sound selections aren't kept, features don't work correctly, script commands don't work correctly. it would also be great if we could select our own sounds without having to get them added to a server manually, being able to upload supported files would be great, or it could work similar to a projector. Record some audio, maybe even a few, and play the ones you want. Also the op's idea for a music block is pretty cool and I'd love to see it in the game, though I doubt it'd see alot of use outside the script jockeys.

Please help support my "Furniture and Greenhouse" idea. It really is a good idea, if I say so myself. Personally, I think the game has overlooked a vital part of ship building. We have no furniture, like beds and desks or no bathroom items, like sinks, toilets and showers. Anyway, there's more to my idea, I would appreciate any votes. Thank you.
