Sean,I really dig the design you have here and that interface panel looks awesome. The only problem is that we need the interface panel to be a separate piece so we can place it away from the platform itself; there may be some cases where the platform will be out of reach of the player.
word no prob. ill wip up some iteration of the pannel ten and get your guys feedback in class.
Thanks. Loving the work so far and I'm definitely looking forward to the iterations in class.
