Looking good indeed.

I sure hope these get manual controls as well (and the ability for us to pick what side gets 'manual' as option).

Though, as far 'isolating sections from danger' goes, I prefer my doors closing downward... If the power fails before the locks engage, this thing will be 'default open'.
I love the design of these doors. How many of them are there in the game overall?

Yeah this was agonized over at length. But a bottom opening door has some advantages.

Things like it stopping flowing liquids or pesky animals faster. Plus the whole getting trapped because the power went out with the 5 tonne door down seems like a poor design feature.

Plus it's visually interesting, feels much better this way.
Doors look very good. And I never thought of the benefits of bottom opening door. Knew about getting trapped with downward closing doors but never thought about flowing liquids or pesky animals.
