Keen add missing corner blocks

Very simple, the current game version lacks many corner blocks and blocks for various angles. Keen please finish these missing blocks as they have been missing for years now.


This mod "Armor Extension" shows perfectly the missing blocks. I highly advise Keen to either recreate these blocks or incorporate this mod into the base game to solve this long outstanding issue. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=837236236


Additionally I would also like to (at long last) see extended armor ramps added into the game. The current default block list is very limited in its angles and curves. Please consider adding one of the many great armor ramp mods into the game!

Give this man a trophy.

I would also like to see some more half slab shapes.

Yes, please! The Armor Extension mod has all the major ones missing at https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=837236236. Not being able to complete corners/merge angles is really stifling creative design. Hull shapes would be so much more diverse if this was added.

Tbh even the mod is missing a few important shapes.

It means that many are thinking about this.

Need these corner blocks to finish building nice looking bases and ships.

Also there has been a new mod that adds in the missing blocks! I would like Keen to just include this in the default game. Easy patch that would greatly improve the game.

The only reason I have stopped playing is because these blocks are missing from the vanilla game... It is so frustrating not having the x3 block slopes specifically, just imagine what having all these blocks would do for ship aesthetics.

I have $4.00 standing by to give you Keen!

This is the build that keeps me from playing until the blocks are (hopefully) added...

IMO simply adding corners and slopes won't solve the problem. We'll end up with zillions of corner blocks and still not having the one needed somehow.

I think that keen should implement some sort of highly rudimentary 3D modeling function that allows us to make the exact armor block needed. Maybe limit it under no more than a few polygons is enough. Speaking of feasibility, we have armor deformation already isn't it? Maybe make it controllable can achieve the effect.

YES !


One for all add all missing bloks to be able to build spheres with vanilla blocks, so easy task !

This is one of the best things that can be added to this game.

This is a MUST have !

You've got my +1, but as a bare minimum, I'd be happy to get just these armour blocks:/300B00400B5C4D9EDA0544289CA90C37DE8CE346

These are in the fantastic mod "Missing Slopes, Blocks And Windows", found at:

This mod and all it's variants now exceeds 60,000 subscribers!!! Keen, please, how high does the number have to get for you to take notice? I saw the expression on the faces of those streaming on Aug 6th 2020 for the optimization and collision block update when they saw the number of subscriptions; like deer caught in headlights.

I really fail to understand why they never added these in the first place.. If Keen are really excited to some of the community made creations, then why tie our hands? I personally have found this the most frustrating part of designing new ships.

Please complete the player experience.

Well as it happens, during the live Twitch stream announcing tighter collision boxes I mentioned that the subscription for this mod and it's alternatives had surpassed 60,000. I mentioned it a few times to make sure they would see it and I got a reaction. I saw it on Xocliv's face. It looks like they might not have been aware that it had so many subscriptions, but that's no surprise as people don't vote here enough. All we can do is mention it again and again each Twitch stream until they understand it's popularity.

People vote enough. Keen doesn't care enough.

Personally, I would like a more organic solution to building. I don't think it's practical to have a block for every single possible combinaison of shape that peoples might want. I think that a better solution is so allow some limited shaping of blocks, by adding the ability to use existing block with a negative or additive mask.

I have only been playing the game for a few months now but it one of the first things i noticed that there are not enough blocks types to make more complex shapes of ships and i feel like ever since i started playing i find that its hard to be creative with the limited blocks there are and i find it takes me weeks to build a ship just to try and get a shape that i like, this game has far less block compared to other building games out there.


so yes Please keen more blocks!

Honestly, its a little disheartening this isnt in the game. The community has been asking for more shapes and better integration since day one. Over seven years of this, and we got "ramps" finally a while ago.


Seriously, im not a programmer, but i am a 3D artist. So i would have no idea where to begin modding. I also dont know how their collisions are programmed, so this is bit exaggerated: "But i can literally model the basic geometry of all the missing pieces we need in but a minute or two each." SO WHY has it been years in the asking to still get nothing?


I mean, i am so grateful they have been working on fixing their collisions (which seems to have stalled a bit here), but still. We have been asking for this since before survival was even a thing.


Not that i am asking for anything this crazy (but a guy can dream) but have any of you seen how Starship EVO does its building? Its all three dimensional scaling for all of its blocks. With appropriate collisions that allow rotors and pistons to do their thing. Not to mention, all of its blocks have a grid/subgrid system just like Medieval Engineers has. Which, by the way. Keen claimed ME was a side project to be a testing ground for SE. So why did we only get planets in the years of ME's development?


Sorry. Bit of rant there.


Keen, please. More armor to build better and more beautiful ships and stations.
