      My other suggestions related to Logic:

      [My Logic-blocks v2 r1.2] : Change function, keep data
      ↑↑ If you see a wall of text, it's just because I wrote it in more than one way to make everybody happy ↑↑​

      Did you ever want to just connect all area triggers without selecting each one? Or have a ship-wide synchronized clock?

      I found a possible solution:

      A Comparision-Block
      It can link ANY other block.

      If itself gets a true, it re-reads the number of those blocks active (only these which are not connected to something else).
      If itself gets a false, it re-reads the number of those blocks alive.
      (I guess these numbers are already calculated for mass and other stuff like blueprint cost. Correct me if I'm wrong)​
      [last read <= current read] => true|on|1, else false|off|0​
      It is as simple as counting [mass in <block type>] or having all not otherwise (output)connected LogicBlocks connected to this one.​

      This can also be used for easier damage detection.
