Breadboard updates/changes

#1
I'm working on some major changes to the breadboard to make various new kinds of inputs and components as wel as some quality of life changes. 
One of these quality of life changes is the ability to connect an output to more than one input at simultaneously, but this change requires a small change in the save format used by the breadboard. The result of this change will be that if you load a breadboard made before these changes, then all outputs of all modules will be duplicated. It shouldn't be a huge problem, but I just wanted to let you know in advance. To compensate, you'll be able to remove a selected in- or output by simply pressing the 'Delete' key on your keyboard. 



Upcoming changes/additions
  • The ability to zoom in and out on the breadboard
  • An optional grid drawn in the background. If enabled, components will snap to this grid when moving them
  • Every output will be able to connect to any number of inputs instead of just one
  • The ability to copy and paste components inside the breadboard
  • Pressing 'Delete' will remove a selected input or output
  • Selecting a component, input or output will highlight all links of that component
  • It will be possible for modules to have inputs and outputs that use values other than numbers (allows many more interesting components)
  • There will be a system to loop/iterate over various things. More on this later when I can show some examples
  • A component to read information from any block that has interesting information (things like the boiler pressure of a steam boiler)
  • A component to set most sliders, toggles and some other settings of blocks that have those
  • Lots of extra inputs and components
Some of these are already finished and will be included in the next devtest build, some of these only need to be properly tested before they can be released, and some will take a couple of weeks before they'll be ready. 

I would really like to hear any suggestions for new components or general breadboard features or changes you might have and please do report any bugs you encounter.

I will also be posting some video in this thread explaining examples of what you can do with breadboards and showing off new features. If you want me to do a vid on something specific or a tutorial or something, feel free to request that too.
