Extend Creative Design Techniques to Survival Using Projectors
It is hard to design ships in survival. You can only place one block at a time and have no way of judging the final product other than imagining it. The process is slow and once you get onto bigger sections and ships mistakes require massive amounts of time to correct.
It is easy to design ships in creative. Mirror mode, line/plane building as well as copy/paste allow massive ships to be created and destroyed at a whim. mistakes can be made, removed, and remade efficiently.
THE ISSUE: On multiplayer servers multiple people usually cant participate in the design of a ship. This would require a second server just for creative mode, and even then the construction would not be made in context to the other creations of the survival server. Once imported it may not fit with, into, around, or on preexisting creations.
POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Allow the projector block to act like an editable canvas. Creative mode functions such as mirror are enabled to allow the projections to be modified quickly, and the individual blocks can be built at the player's leisure. This can also work to give player's shipyards and hangars an extra function, and allow multiple players to design a ship in their own creative world. If block permissions are set, this can be used to restrict who can and cannot edit, and in PVP a design weakness could be used as sabatoge...
