You have no idea how long I've wanted this to be in the game

THIS. I need this!

Yes. Yes. A million times yes!

We need this

I made a suggestion here with this same suggestion minus the infographic. Keen, just do it already. A modder has already got rope kinda working plus it being the same engine as medieval engineers we all know it's possible....

Keen, we know you happily implement mods if there is enough hype for them, like the weather mod for instance. So here you go https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1927786100

This would be great especially for tethering small ships to big ships without big clunky connectors

It's a very reasonable suggestion I think. You could balance the cost of those to include some rarer materials like gold to keep this balanced against the convenience it brings. An alternate way of this would be strictly transferring power, essentially creating power cables to connect smaller outposts. Maximum range for tethers would obviously be up for discussion, but something like 10 blocks seems fair in my opinion.

This I need...

...PLEEEEEEEAAAASSSSEEE :)

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!


This is possible, Conveyor Hinges are a thing so this totally should work.

This is real cool. Would deff add something useful to the game. And yes I made an account to say this.

Maybe only connect power and oxygen or something. Maybe some ore, I'm not sure.

yes please

Great idea. Would love to be able to attach an umbilical to a craft to use gas & energy & maybe build parts

This would be a great addition to the game. Would make it easier to to connect my ice drilling platform to my cargo rover without having to line up the connectors. This block would also be a great way to hook up to starter drop pod in survival games to a base to use the survival kit as an O2/H2 generator until you have the resorces to build a full size one.

I've always wanted to make a Giant Generator on one grid and link it with other grids like factories and stuff without having to worry about making everything the same grid or having to have a reactor in every grid, Which is why this is so fricking important.

That'd be brilliant, I always manage to scrape my ship trying to connect to my base so landing nearby and just plug up a hose would help immensely :D

This would be amazing for those that love logistics in a realism sense. No need for connectors sticking out of the floor, breaking up your blast door block tiling for hangars. Instead, you have sockets in walls and fuel trucks, who connect seamlessly with a small port on the side of your aircraft! It would make smaller strike craft feasible in survival!

This would add so mutch to the game, please keen

I have played this game for 5 years, I just now made an account for the soul purpose as to upvote this post.

WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU

Thankyou :) let's hope keen takes interest.

I agree with that! I'm really hoping Keen takes interest in this idea... and if not, somebody to make a mod that adds this block into the game. It would make transportation between my main base and mining bases so much easier.

Awesome idea!


In combination with it, it would be cool if we could have mpre control over connectors aharing settings:

i think the power needs to be a separate cable

something cheaper, but unable to transfer components,

the components tube unable to transfer power

the cables could be differently sized

Astroneer has these if you need to see a very good example of what you can do with flexi connectors

It would solve the problem of fueling ships that are out of hydrogen. Now you need to find various ways to move it somehow to stations connector or build a vehicle that exactly fits the height of ships connector. Or totally rebuild your creation by finding place where you can fit atmospheric/ionic engines. Yes, it is challenging. But when you play alone (mostly), it's very tiring and frustrating.

I've seen many rovers or ships run out of fuel or power and if you don't have production on them they despawn when walking 500m from them. When someone helps you the first step is to place matching connectors on each grid, which feels like overkill when you just need some of their power. For rescue missions or more generally, ships that only need small components, H2 or electricity, these hoses look like an awesome alternative to connectors!

Its great idea. Rovers and on planet survival need this soo much. Vehicles out of power and without H2 gen or reactor are hard to connect to base or just repower. Now easiest way is build new battery on it , go to base and then charge fuel and destory battery.

give me download button xD the idee is nice
