    logic Switches

    I often wish to have at least one type of (automatic) logic switch: The Not-Switch!
    When I leave my Base, I put a switch of, that powers my machines and have to put another on to power external lights or something like that.
    I would like to have a "logic switch" with:
    - Powerconnector (always needed, so a "not-switch" could give Power without having Input-Power)
    - Input A
    - Input B
    - Output
    - Type (NOT, OR, AND)
    With this we could even build a backup energy system: We use Energy type A, when it hasn't enough Power it could automatically switch to energy type B plus an "blue alarm light". When Power B is out, it switches to C with a "red alert"... so we should land our vessel/flying Base.
    For me it sounds like a great idea and I think it is not a big thing to implement...

    You think that would still help once the build vision is available in the vehicles?
    Because then you can just check how full your batteries are.
    Why on earth would someone spent all his time in life being a little bit creative, when you can go all the way?

    We can have lights turn off/on automatically now.


    Connect your power source to a switchboard on a vehicle; connect that switchboard to a base switchboard that powers the lights.

    Currently we cannot create a block that has multiple different electric connectors. It will need some rework, and even we all are fans of logic gates, this is not a priority now.
    What could be done with current electricity is simple emergency light - when powered recharges its own integrated battery, when unpowered provides weak red light. We will see if we will do this block.

    That is fricking awesome, Love your big hangar doors.
    Must have missed the clap your hands option, where can I find this proximity thingy?

    I wish I could take credit for the Gates opening video, but it was Erdensten on Steam.

    My second thought after seeing the video was runway/landing lights! My first thought was WOW!!!
