This week’s Space Engineers release includes a feature called Build Planner. This feature is explicitly and directly inspired by the Easy Inventory mod, which we have installed on the official server, and provides a richer set of tools than EI does:
Like Easy Inventory, Build Planner allows you to hold a block in your hand and right-click a cargo container to transfer the parts for that block to your inventory, or ctrl-right click to transfer components for multiple copies of the block.
Additionally, you can queue the parts for an incomplete block in the world by right-clicking the block with a welder. When you next transfer components from cargo, the components for that block will be moved to your inventory.
You can middle-click on blocks in the G menu to queue them up, then pick up all components for all queued blocks from a cargo container in one click.
Unlike Easy Inventory, Build Planner also includes buttons on the inventory UI to drive this feature.
As such, Easy Inventory is now largely redundant.
I submit the following proposal:
Title: Slightly Harder Inventory
Adoption Index: 1.0
Amend rule 9.14 (“Quality of Life”) by removing the table row for Easy Inventory (with a Mod ID of 646796262).
Instruct the Space Master to remove the Easy Inventory mod from the official server.
