    Lightbulb Drilling Vehicle

    Would there be a way to create a drilling vehicle, with a larger version of the handheld multitool to go through mountains to get the resources quicker. Just a thought. Thanks.

    They had such a concept in the editor.

    Keeping with how building is done in PN, we would want a block with a laser/tool at one end and a conveyor port at the other. (With a cockpit trigger)
    They have expressed a desire to add gun turrets, so I’m sure it is on their nice to have list.
    I’m thinking such a tool would also be useful for building roads and tunnels.

    it would be nice if they made a mini automated version for tunneling or allow it to be sized per placed blocks. ie 4 corners and expand block size to fit the placed blocks. being able to put down a pipe and tell it in a control pannel to go 300' with power placed and set it to square/round/hall configuration would be really handy. hall config = floor 2 sides probably outdoor and a roof with a pipe on the left next to the celing and attached power junctions at the maximum of their radius.
