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.

The bottom opening door is not a new concept. And it does have some practical pros.
