So we have the starship controller, and we have all types of redstone machinery and factories and ships and stuff, but I think a new block and item should each be created. The block portion would be something that you either connect to a machine, or would function as a redstone energy source, called a “Remote Node”. If attached to a machine it will attach to the note block part. While the item will essentially be a remote that brings up a menu when right clicked in hand which allows you to turn on or off nodes that were installed by you and are within a certain range. This could be useful for turning on and off water or lava falls that are used to cover hangar entrances, as well as turn on and turn off shields as necessary.
With these, a new “hacking” game feature could be added, where enemy players have the ability to potentially hack your Remote Nodes and take control of them. The hacking feature would have to be designed by someone else, as I honestly have no idea how it could work, but it could be an interesting new form of warfare.
