Things that would make Xbox life easier

I'm new to the game, started with xbox but I've noticed some things that would make life easier for xbox peeps.


1. Allowing input of data values instead of only using the D-Pad. IE, setting a rotation limit on a rotator you have the option of bringing up the xbox digital keyboard to set the value.


2. Adding the ability to script objects OR implement moded items. IE, something as (should be) simple as controlling wheels attached via rotors aren't controllable. (I made a fantastic suspension system that wouldn't function due to lack of "connection" between the "rotators grid.") I I another thread regarding you guys looking into scripting so I'm not asking for that as much this post, but I'm always hoping for more!


3. Finally, (this is more for SE in general) add a simplified block to act as a hinge unit, which can rotate on an up/down axis rather than spin left or right. There is a hinge mod for PC that works perfectly and I would love to see it vanilla or the abi lo it to add useful little mods like that


I do understand there are blockades for scripting /mods due to Microsoft's policies, but for the love of SE, please throw us lowly life forms on xbox a bone of some kind, such as definitely adding predetermined essential scripts as standard game function or at the very least tossing in a hinge.


Thank you.

Definitely agree with #1. Either manually add the number or tap once = one number at a time and hold = scan through numbers. Currently it's extremely annoying to deal with.

Ditto. Don't reinvent the wheel, hold a should be what it is, y should be transfer all, and single a should be transfer a single.

Additionally, on the long press a menu, you shouldn't be able to transfer 0... That's redundant

Agreed. Please implement a more effective input system for the fields in the control panel. I can't tell you how much time I have wasted trying to match the settings of a new rotor or piston to an existing one. The "slide with D-pad" function causes us to constantly miss the desired value is nearly unbearable.

We will have fun even more if scripting is available for consul players as most mods our script based and there’s hardly any think on Xbox apart from PC is got everything and we don’t have hardly anything in the way of mods we can put on it’s making fun more better on Xbox then it would be how it is now
