Touch Panel for Trade Platform to automatically pull/stow Scrap

Recommended Posts

Currently, if you have enough Scrap attached to the Trade Platform, it shows as white resource icon in the panel (F)., insufficient Scrap shows as pink resource icon.

However, the Trade Platform is currently only operated manually and has no automatic pull/stow functionality.

My idea would be a 'Touch Display'. Provided there is enough Scrap on storage, there could be a grey icon, which, upon touch, turns white and pulls the Scrap automatically.

You could then just click on the desired amount possible, between 1..8, depending on resource, and Scrap gets pulled and stowed based on the quantity desired.

Furthermore, retrieved resources should be stowed as well, if spots are available, or, as-is, ejected if there is no room available.

Select resource in the GUI, required scrap is picked up from attached storage and traded. Returning rocket places acquired resources onto free (empty) attached storage. This one change would make the Trade Station worth using, assuming you have a resource deposit to mine from it's currently easier to do that than use the trade station. :(

However please don't make resource that you have traded for fall out onto the floor (ejected).
