Let Drones Use GPS
Upgrade Ingame API for programmable block to support retrieving GPS data from Antenna blocks.
This will open an entire literal world of possibilities:
1. Drones will be able to use Ore Detectors and mine for specific ores.
2. Drones will be able to detect enemies from further than 500 meters away.
With these two factors, this will make it possible to create entire autonomous Drone factions. Let me explain.
Right now Drones are capable of building their own ships and stations using projector blocks, as well as defending themselves to a certain extent. Managing inventory has been done using the current ingame API already.
The only missing link which makes autonomous factions unreachable is the current inability of drones to locate and mine ore.
Once this is done, SE will reach it's zenith. Players will be able to compete against an autonomous enemy force, simply spectate an ongoing conflict, or form alliances.
