~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Every captain wants to have displays that show some useful info. Make your bridge display damaged blocks in engineering, engine room, etc. Make big screen by joining multiple Wide LCDs! Show power output, batteries status, laser antenna connections and much more. Make your docking bay display which landing gears are occupied. Make screens for docking fighers when landing gear is ready to dock so they can nicely see it from cockpit! Make one LCD per container to see its contents.. and much more!

IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AUTHORS OR COPYRIGHT HOLDERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGES OR OTHER LIABILITY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION OF CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, ARISING FROM, OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SCRIPT OR THE USE OR OTHER DEALINGS IN THE SCRIPT.


HOW TO UPDATE?
This script is not a mod so it does not update by itself. You need to load new version of script to your programmable block to overwrite the old one. You do that in exactly the same way as when you first loaded the script into programmable block.
Open your programmable block, click Edit, click Browse Workshop, select Automatic LCDs 2, click OK, Check code, Remember & Exit. Done. Your script is now updated.

RATING
If you like this script please give it positive rating, it gives me "fuel" to continue.
If you plan to give it negative rating, please at least let me know what makes it so horrible that it deserves negative rating so I can learn from the mistake and/or fix it.


!! PLEASE READ THIS !!
I'm really happy that this script became so popular and that so many people like it, but many people means many questions and I rather enjoy other things than saying the same things all over again to people. So I wrote the guide where I've put everything about every command, tried to answer all questions that people had in comments and I keep it updated. I'm responding to many comments that are obviously stated in the guide. Please read the guide.

If you've got questions, but you don't want to read the guide, then this script is probably not for you.

I understand that this script got quite a lot of features and it can be hard to crunch whole guide. Unfortunately I can't teach everyone how to use it via chat. It took me several hundreds of hours to put this all together so please take your time to read the guide and follow the troubleshooting section if something doesn't work.

If you have problem with some command then read the guide section for that command and make sure you use it correctly. Try to use it on separate LCD by itself so it's easier for you to see the issue and definitely try some examples!

You are the space engineers so go ahead and play with it and figure it out :)

Thank you very much for your understanding.

I want to get a count (kg) of Ore and Ingots in a group of containers. InvList comes close but I don't want it broken out by item subtype just the total mass of Ores and Ingots. Cargo gets the total volume and that would be OK however it does not break it out by the item type. Is this doable with Automatic LCD's?
Waipa Jul 29 @ 4:58am 
yes that helps thx, but i can remember it worked some time ago Oo
Gromit Jul 29 @ 4:03am 
@Waipa: see Kham's answer dated May 11th: "For batteries though there is no boolean property to read for charge state so you'll need to use Working command."
Hope this helps
Waipa Jul 29 @ 3:24am 
are some of the probbools broken for exampl battery recharge?
Gromit Jul 29 @ 1:04am 
@PlattyBoy: please read the full guide. There's the "Tanks" command for this

@[EGM] Mattzi @ApexAlphaGaming Not currently. I can't answer as to whether or not it's something MMaster may be able to add at some point or not.
ApexAlphaGaming Jul 28 @ 7:16pm 
@[EGM] Mattzi I literally asked the same question, no response as of yet, I assume it's a no since you have to add the text to the Custom Data of a block or the name and since LCDs all share the same custom data and name of the same block they're on, my bet is "No, not possible"
[EGM] Mattzi Jul 28 @ 4:04pm 
Is it possible to Link multiple LCDs together that are IN a Cockpit? So for example Linking the Top Center Screen and the Keyboard of the normal Cockpit?
Kham Jul 28 @ 9:44am 
@MachoNatchoMan Cargo command only works with cargo containers. You need to use CargoAll command to get cargo of all block types which have inventories. Simply group the drills with whatever other blocks on your ship you want to be included and then run the command against that group.
CargoAll {G:My Group Name}
MachoNatchoMan Jul 28 @ 4:41am 
just realized that there's the vanilla drill capacity bar when having the large grid drills selected as the block tool via the hotbar so that'l do plenty i think, still would be neat to have it listed in the lcd's though :q thank you though for what you've done with this script, i never play SE without it, ever :p
