[Suggestion] Cable Management Node

Postby Squat500 » Sat Feb 28, 2015 6:13 am

I am loving the newly added feature to manage, route, and group cables into particular locations.
A suggestion I had would be to add a new object called a "J-box" or wiring box. With this box, the cables can be snapped to it and break out after, further helping cleanup. It may also simplify some of the coding by locking the nodes to integer points.

Fellow PA testers, let me know how this sounds and if I should include some simple concept art! :-)

I think I understand exactly what you mean, and I want that feature too.

I think that's why OP posted a suggestion instead of just making or downloading an existing mod ;)

Indeed. I wish I had the time to create such a tweak, but full time work and student has me running at 110% right now... 40hrs sleep a week is starting to take a toll on sanity! :-)
