Folders for Blueprints

Having lots of blueprints, from our own creations and all of cool creation that you've subscribed to on the workshop, the blueprint menu get crowded and having all those blueprint just gets harder to find the right blueprint

having folders would solve this issue being able organize your blueprints into folders like having all of the wheeled vehicles in one folder would make finding wheeled vehicles easier and that goes for other types of blueprints as well.

Blueprint subfolders are already a thing (for local blueprints only though), it's just that the UI doesn't have a "new folder" button to make it obvious and it also doesn't seem to be a way to move them to folders from the game.


So what you can do is go to %appdata/SpaceEngineers/Blueprints/local and organize things manually.

This would be very handy and in addition I would like to see another option other then "Exploration" when uploading a new ship to the workshop. It's been 4 years now, surely they can come up with more options for us to pick from..........

I think a lot other UI elements will benefit from folders as well, not just for blueprints.

For example folders for location(GPS) markers(for those who prefer tagging asteroids), folders for ship components (folder for groups, folder per ship and per component type), for mods and scripts...

+1, also maybe folders for savegames as well

I think there already are 'save folders' - scenarios have nested folders (or at least had) for each 'step' and scenario-autosave that also uses same folders.

But would have been nice to have similar thing for regular saves (or there is?)

P.S. I like how scenarios work, but I still don't get it why devs decided to do independent scenarios and not inworld-ones. Would have been so much better to go toward random-encounter ship and trigger a 'protect ship from pirates' mission instead or 'ship lost propulsion, assist with getting to target'...

Yes... We need this cleaned up and retooled for our special use. The existing folder thing (which up til now I did not even know existed) works but it is not intuitive, require manual manipulation outside of the game, and does not seem to go with the current updated screens. I want a folder that will just open a sub-folder where I still have the same viewability. Also, it would be nice to be able to rename, move, delete, jot notes, etc, by right clicking on the Blue Print Image without having to open it up in workshop mode.
