Add freeform building (less blocks, endless shape possibilities)

It's possible that SE is in such state that this would require too much work but here's the suggestion anyway.


Right now SE lacks many block shapes and KEEN doesn't seem to be interested in adding more. Freeform block building would decrease the amount of blocks a lot and make all those missing triangle blocks possible.

This could even make small grid window blocks possible =D

Skywanderers are implementing this and it would be awesome in Space Engineers


Weight could be calculated from the volume and material

Given the number of reasonable ideas that have just been shot down by KSH... I wouldn't hold your breath on this one.

Well I think they are going to consolidate and "finish" the game.


Then - I hope - they will merge ME engine with SE and start to work on SE2 with those ideas ...

Pretty sure I'm done with KSH as a developer. They have proven to me that their work... while inspired, lacks discipline and a general sense of vision. If they make SE2, SE1 will be fresh in my mind and I'd need to see a long list of procedural and systemic changes in-house before I ever contemplated hopping back on board.

lol. The whole engine would need to be rewritten to implement this idea. You might even need a new engine all together.
