    My suggestion is for more sophisticated air locks. Here is how it works:
    1. The maximum air bubble size is automatically calculated (this happens anyway).
    2. If there is a space that is "closed off" the air shapes itself to the interior of the building.
    3. Air can flow out if the building if opened (airlocks).

    There is no sense in a "bubble". In closed space should be oxygen if there is a distributor.

    DcNdrew, the "bubble" is what the mod automatically does currently. I agree with the molding to the shape of the room, as my friend continually complains about the "Ugly Spheres" around our station.

    You do know you can use the new oxygen sealer. It does exactly what you just said.

    I know it does, but sadly it derps out when I attempt to use it near glass.

    What, "Yes".. this is not an acceptable answer. Its like asking "Would you like an Apple or a Carrot?". Yes.

    It is acceptable in that term, meaning I would like both.
    In the context I used above, I am trying to say it refuses to work for either.
    ***EDIT*** Like a sir.

    I couldn't find how to make the seal work. :D
    I put that next to the airlock. On the wall-side. And the room-side. Nothing changed. The level of oxigen is 15 no matter what I've done and the stuff is unsealed. Can you show me on a pic how did you make it work?

    I can not get it to work on the build released to us, but I suggest the most recent dev build. It works decently well, but if it can not seal the room it will crash your game, fair warning.
