Heyho Novark Builders, I’ve got a little problem and I cannot find a good answer, so I would like to suggest a little something: This topic is not about core alignment, but about rotating cores. To be more precise, the rotation function where you hold R and Scroll with your mouse-wheel is far to unprecise. As far as I can judge this, equipping a Static Core will show you were you are able to place the core on your plot. This position is not “loose”, which means you can not rotate it by changing the direction your character is looking, but it is simply fixed. And sadly, it is not aligned with any of the plots six sides. Unequipping the Core and reequipping it does also not change the fixed position. Of course, you can rotate the core by holding R and using your mouse-wheel. However, this will rotate the core by a fixed amount of… dunno, 5 degree or so? This means you cannot properly align your building space to your territory’s walls no matter what, as holding R and scrolling rotates the core just by too much of a degree. I get that this might be not a point of concern for most of you out there, but I do think this is an issue that should be talked about. A possible solution and my personal suggestion is the following: The player should be able to rotate the core freely when holding down R and moving the mouse left and right (horizontally, of course!). Edit: Another possible solution would be a feature to snap on the borders of a core to the territorys borders. I have not found a thread with this topic, so if there is one or if you have a solution, please show me the way ^^
As the name implies, it would allow you to manipulate the build box. For example, say a large core is 128x128x128 and you just wanted something a bit longer but just a fraction of that width. Allows to subtract from unused axis to add to desired one. Keeping the same total build volume and game balance of various sizes cores. I don't know about y'all, but most ships I want to build are alot longer than they are wide or tall. This is something I brought up in game, but thought it appropriate to bring to the forums.
