I have a suggestion that has also been voiced by members of my gaming community regarding grid sizes: Combine them. Instead of having small/large grids, use the scroll-wheel when building to select the size of the item you want to make. Being able to combine large and small blocks would greatly expand the things that people are able to make, and the detail available for larger ships. People are already doing this, in a way, with mods that support "small ships gone large". I recommend for standard light/heavy block sizes: 1/4 (currently small-grid), 1/2, 1 (currently large ship size). Those sizes would add a HUGE amount of flexibility and variation in what builds are available. For all items that have different size options already, I would recommend the same scroll-wheel changing approach: Wheels Thrusters Landing gear Antenna/Ore detectors Reactors etc. Smaller items can also be be modified to not require a full large-block buffer area: Interior lights (currently require a full large-ship block size of buffer space ) Catwalks LCDs Control Panels Seats etc. The freedom and flexibility this would afford to players would be huge! The build variety and complexity would be great. Since the builders would be able to use larger blocks where appropriate, these would be more performant than small-ships-gone-large. I'd love to see Keen implement this soon™.
