The Paint Gun mod by Digi (Found here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=500818376) allows for blocks that would usually be obscured, to be painted in a realistic manner. I am sure that I am not the only one that would like to see this tool implemented in the vanilla game.

Definitely you are not the only one who wants such implementation. Hope you will get enough votes to push it forward.

I'm really hoping they can implement this feature. I often have to grind down sections of a ship (which sometimes leads to accidental ship splits) just to paint a block which I can see from the outside. The current paint system is just weird.

I would like the option to paint in sections as well. For example. You have one large ship armor block. Just one cube. I would like to be able to paint it in sections. One side be black, and another side be green, yellow, or even red instead of the whole block being one color. Or can we also be able to paint just a section of that one block face? That would be nice

I never thought it is that important but after the latest update I think some better painting tool is needed.

We got plenty of block skins available but in some cases you have to remove block(light or railing etc) to be able to paint block behind even its fully visible. You have to plan colours ahead because repainting is pain and constant removing and adding block for paint job is making experimenting with skins more annoying than fun.

simple example. corridor with new interior wall and corner lights. you want to change colour so remove light change colour and build light then set up light and finding out that colour isnt really ideal so remove light change colour of the wall and build light again ... you get the idea.

This. I downloaded this mod and it brings so much more life to my grids. Painting in survival as it stands now is a pain in the.

I use the paint gun mod continuously. I'd love to see an option to limit building in survival to default gray only and have the paint gun mod incorporated in vanilla thus making it that we build with raw steel, unpainted, then paint our creations after. Could be an option for those who don't like this much immersion.
