It could be a nice thing to have a hand tool or a block that help us to find any block on a grid who is damaged. Like the car dashboard who tell us that there is a problem here and there, whe could have a tool or a block to diagnose a ship and alert us of any potential problem when it detect a damaged block. Going through a 5000 block ship block by block to find if there is any damaged block is not very fun.

You can use welding tool and look through all blocks :)

To see what is damaged on LCD, it is possible to set it up using programming blocks.

Read again my last sentence...

Some servers doesn't allow the use of Programmable Blocks for performance reasons

I see what you mean, game could have a scanner working in a way metal detectors work, but instead it detects damage.

How would you handle blocks that are entirely missing?

I think this is a good idea; On the missing blocks, maybe it can use a blueprint of the original to check it against ? Just damaged blocks would already be something

Missong blocks are managed by the projector. What I need is a way to finf damaged block whoes damages is not visible (eg: 1 plate missing to fully repair/build the block doesn't show differently than a fully build block)
