Variable Block - new feature suggestion
A new block a bit like the timer block but allows you to set variables on any functional block to a specific value for one or more blocks (perhaps with some reasonable count limit). This block would be have "trigger now" like the timer block.
Piston: set maximum distance to 4
Thrusters: set thrust override to 40%
It would need an interface that would allow the selection of any functional block that is configurable, then allow the selection of the blocks variables and present the appropriate value field.
I believe this would improve the situation on servers that do not allow scripts, and make for some interesting engineering!
