Normal Number Ordering
OK right now when you have multiple of the same block like lights it can reach up to 100s and their will be a number after the block name right (example: light, light 2, light 3, etc.) anyways when gets into the double digits + the game's number ordering gets weird like it'll go 1, 10, 100, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 2, 20, etc. when it should go 1, 2, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 100, and its very annoying too (is it seeing the first number then 2nd and not even seeing the whole number?)

The number ordering *is* normal--the first light you build is "Interior Light," the second is "Interior Light 2," etc. The trouble comes when things are built/deleted/exploded, and the grid remembers. So you end up with "Interior Light 65" when you really just wanted to replace "Interior Light 3." Not much you can do except be meticulous in naming your blocks as you build them. As for the 1, 10, 100, 11 issue, that's just because of how the sorter works. Again, be meticulous and if you know you're going to have more than 100 Interior Lights, name the first one 001 instead of 1. :)

ok the first half not is not what i was saying that part is fine "The number ordering *is* normal--the first light you build is "Interior Light," the second is "Interior Light 2," etc. The trouble comes when things are built/deleted/exploded, and the grid remembers. So you end up with "Interior Light 65" when you really just wanted to replace "Interior Light 3." Not much you can do except be meticulous in naming your blocks as you build them." as for this part "As for the 1, 10, 100, 11 issue, that's just because of how the sorter works. Again, be meticulous and if you know you're going to have more than 100 Interior Lights, name the first one 001 instead of 1." i want is the game to recognize 100 is the whole number so its a lot easier to fined stuff and rename stuff in stead of it being 1, 10, 100, 11 its recognize the whole numbers and puts them in order as 1, 10, 11, 100 (what i think game is seeing it the numbers like 1.0.0 instead of 100) all im asking keen is fix the number sorting so it can be 1, 10, 11, 100
