We should have some sort of trigger block

Something similar to a timer block except in this one you have an input and an output. So lets say the input is "Corner Light 3 On/Off" and the output is "Piston 5 Extend" so then when "Corner Light 3" is toggled On/Off, then "Piston 5" will extend...

We will consider this feature. Keep voting.

Thank you for your feedback!


Rather then adding a new block, I would like to see some TLC go into the timer block. I've just completed a drilling rig and it requires 7 timers to get it moving as intended. 4 of those control which rotor detaches based on whether the head is going down and drilling, or coming up and being retracted. 2 more are there just to attach the rotors for the handover and call the previously mentioned timers. That's way too much for such a simple task and there's really no way to reduce it without creating other issues. Some kind of basic visual programming interface with actions and reactions would really be appreciated.
