Rightclick build-memory (And rightlick pull from cargo)

I rarely use the new functionality that was supposed to implement the easy inventory mod.

In my opition the implementation was not succesful. It is to cumbersome and only works with fresh blocks, it doesn't really help with repairs or partially built items.

What I would like to see is a feature that lets you memorize the material you need via rightclick on the unfinished block.

Rightclicking on multiple objects should be possible. It then just adds the material to a total list.

When you use the feature and you memorize something a symbol also should appear on screen, indicating that you can head over to a cargo/conveyor system now.

Then, when you look at a cargo container, connector etc... you can press rightclick again, and the system tries to pull the material out of the connected cargo system without the need to open the control menu.

This would be probably one of the biggest QOL features the game needs atm.


Each Cargo container probably needs an extra checkbox that doesn't allow this autopull by default, so you only pull items from containers meant for building/repairing stuff.

Actually there is almost such an mechanic ingame, it just doesn't allow storing multiple "bills" for blocks you want to build, unless you select them via G-Menu and the new BP Interface on the buttom right corner. Not that helpful when you are repairing something or trying to build stuff from a projector block.

I'm a little confused by your request. The build planner system already has at least some of what you're talking about. If you go to an unfinished block or a damaged block and right click it with a welder in your hand it'll add the needed components to build planner and then you just go middle mouse button on a conveyor port to get the needed materials. You can even click on multiple damaged/half built blocks and it'll add them all (up to the max of 8 that the build planner has a silly limit of).

I was away from the game for a while and didn't know that it had all this functionality. I was about to remove the whole feedback entry but this is not possible.

Thanks for the info! I already found out about the rightclick/mmb combo, but the queue feature is new to me.

Now I feel really dumb. I wish I could remove this...

Haha I wouldn't worry about it man, you'd be amazed how many people don't realise that's a feature of the build planner.
