[suggestion] Adding a 'Demolish' Zone

Recommended Posts

While adding a 'Demolish' action to the inspection window of individual objects has been frequently suggested here, I think adding a new room 'meta zone' that causes all contained objects to be treated as if they are set to 'demolish' Would be very helpful.

Specifically this would make removing derelicts and docked raider ships far, far easier.

- All constructions/objects inside the room would be removed, and should be prioritized above the walls/floors (this would allow for crew to move them without having to wear suits)

- Once objects are removed, walls that are not shared with other rooms (exterior walls) and walls that are shared with other rooms zoned as 'demolish' should be removed

- Walls that are shared with rooms that are not zoned as demolish will not be removed.

- Once walls are removed, the floors should be removed last.

- Visually, when zoned as 'demolish' a room will flash orange as if lit by a yellow rotating warning light, making it visually clear that it is under construction/dangerous: Example image

- Any crew inside the demolish zone should immediately stop what they're doing and vacate the room.

- If crew are stuck inside the room and cannot leave, the user should be notified. alternatively the zone could revert back to its previous zone.

This can already be done... Sort of... By de-zoning a room. Once you dezone it, your builders or security workers destruct anything within the room, because it doesn't belong there.

Although being able to cordon off rooms, and treat them like actual construction sites with bunting and everything, would be very very helpful!

yeah but they don't stop what they are doing and vacate, they may just decide to hang around to workout then play a handheld game then chat with someone who will then decide to hang around to play a hand held game then work out etc.
