All Considered ideas
Datapads for flavor text, sharing blueprints
Role-playing and building scenarios in SE can be tough due to some limits in communicating or sharing information. Datapad items could be made to add context or hints to scenarios and improve immersi...
While I understand the realism intended for space engineers, I feel teleporters (considering jump drives are a thing) wouldn't be too far off.
These would essentially just jump a player between tw...

The ability to turn off/on armor edges, either added into the map/game settings, or even better, in the 'colour wheel/paint popup/window(P key).
I realise this may not be possible with the colour...
