So I had an idea for a suggestion that I think would be really cool and would like to flush out with community - interstellar storage blocks.
Purpose: Interstellar storage can link to some existing storage you have somewhere else and allow you to interface with it remotely (viewing/placing/taking). This would be great for when you have items in all sorts of places, enabling you to move quicker between two locations, or even sort your items from 1 place instead of running around to different storage blocks
Materials: Storage unit (either shelves or blocks) + Oort shards + anything else the devs feel are fluffy (opal maybe?) I don’t think you would need oort to run it like portals, but I think it makes sense to have it as a crafting ingredient.
Usage: You would go to some existing storage and have the ability to create to create a token to mark the set of storage you are viewing. Or maybe create some sort of storage label/location. You can then load the token or location into a series of interstellar storage blocks that match the configuration you have (much like portals).
Alternatively - Interstellar storage can only talk to interstellar storage, like portal blocks. This really limits their functionality and I feel may result in folks not wanting to use regular storage as much, but still a limitation that is an option. I think having the ability to create storage labels from existing storage would be much better - you could have like a sorting station with some of the interstellar storage, and load up different sets of labels to sort your stuff, or grab things from other planets. In order to be fluid, this would need to be some sort of drop down list or something while viewing the interstellar blocks, so as not to continually have to load/reload tokens/labels.
Thoughts from folks - maybe ways to make it even better?
