Starbound is an upcoming first-person shooter with a unique mechanic that allows players to control the door actuators to manually open the door when it’s opened.
The door actuating mechanism is designed to be controlled by a player’s hands, rather than the joystick.
When a door is opened manually, it triggers a countdown timer that automatically shuts off the door, and it then automatically unlocks once the timer is complete.
Starbound uses this mechanic in-game, allowing players to activate door doors to open them when the timer has expired.
Players can also trigger the door to close automatically when the door is closed.
The mechanic is intended to encourage players to take the time to learn the door’s opening and closing mechanics and apply the correct technique to open and close doors, which can help players improve their game skills.
