      It would be nice to have the ability to right/left click on a dock with a blueprint in your hotbar. causing that entity to be placed into the dock.

      Bonus points, if the blueprint would not be consumed, just the blocks needed to create the entity in question.

      Other than just making docking lots of entities like point defense turrets much easier, it would also make docking internal entities like docked reactors less of an ordeal for ships with completed shells.

      Perhaps this should be possible near shops.

      Perhaps you can build auto-movement relative to your ship with logic computers or mods in the near future (and a turret-yard) *just joking* but may be cool anyway.

      It could be a nice way to reload your torpedoes.

      Agreed. Shipyards will automatically replace turrets/docked entities if destroyed, but we need some easy way to change the type of turret or outfit a ship with turrets for the first time. The current system is really annoying. :\
