    How about a button that you press and if you have fans pointing upward that have enough force to lift it up you can freeze the tech on that altitude. This would allow flying bases and a lot more.

    I was thinking more like a spatial anchor

    Maybe I was thinking this so you could still kind of move

    But how could we craft things if we're unanchored?

    That is the point to make it so these aren't completely overpowered and an incentive to make a ground base too

    A hover mode (altitude control/lock) is planned for the fabled control update sometime later (please not just before 1.0....please).

    I would like to be able to make a sky base with full base (crafting) functionality only once we get upgraded (removal of the stasis effect when certain distance away from players and routines/programming) and flying AI (whenever that will be.....if at all :() to help with repairs and fabrication of techs for defense and whatnot (if they would roam or even have random base attacks/raids).

    Would still need to go dirt-side to gather materials for either fabrication (you can buy the RBs but that requires...) or income, and with auto-miners now clipping immune, they will be much more permanent so you will still have grounded bases.

    I feel the only time they should make "air anchoring" is when their can be planes in campaign. This would make it a lot more fair

    Sadly it's low on the list like with the control update due to lack of coders for the work. So the flying bases will be far into the future too.

    And yet it would be easy-ish to do without code. Just make a 'Floating Fortress™' Block.
    A 4x4x1 heavy hover pad that has a height of 100 or so.
    Done.

    Even better if it uses power.
    Then you can only stay on your floating base, if you keep feeding it fuel.

    I would love to have altitude control for choppers especially, but the floating bases would be pretty amazing as well.
    I hope this happens sooner than later.

    Have a good one [8D)
