      i suggest that we add a NEW display module that works just like the normal one except it is invisible and can only be placed/interacted with in build mode that would "kinda" be like a holographic display

      It's a good plan, getting the displays now to fit the characters necessary and positioning the block so its hidden just to achieve this effect can be a pain, a plain invisible/non-interactable block would be nice.

      We might be able to get the invisible effect modding in a new block with the display module code on the invisible rail block idea. But you'd be able to interact with it and enter text in astronaut mode i bet. And I wouldn't want to include a modded block on any ship I want to use on a server or Share with the community, I feel that's just bad form.

      So this is something I would really like to see implemented

      or could just put a "transparency" tab on the existing display module instead of adding a new block

      or add a single "storage" space in the display module that you can place a "ghost block" of another block and the display module uses that blocks texture leave blank for regular texture and have a toggle button for transparency
