Array/table support in procedures

Add Arrays Under Logic and Loops

for a mod i am making i want to create a light dimmer and a array would work well for this instead of a bunch of else if or for statements. the array should have the option to choose the number of rows and column's for values and procedures to be used inside of

a good piece of a example mock up pseudo code procedure that would use this would be

Custom Variable Power Level = 7

Array named "Power Level" tied to "Custom Variable Power Level" with two rows and columns named [1],[2] and [A],[B]) 
{
Custom Variable Power Level [1] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 1
Custom Variable Power Level [2] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 2
Custom Variable Power Level [3] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 3
Custom Variable Power Level [4] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 4
Custom Variable Power Level [5] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 5
Custom Variable Power Level [6] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 6
Custom Variable Power Level [7] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 7
Custom Variable Power Level [8] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 8
Custom Variable Power Level [9] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 9
Custom Variable Power Level [10] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 10
Custom Variable Power Level [11] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 11
Custom Variable Power Level [12] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 12
Custom Variable Power Level [13] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 13
Custom Variable Power Level [14] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 14
Custom Variable Power Level [15] = Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 15
}
If ((Get Custom Variable Power Level) = (Array "Power Level")) / Picks the Current Power Value and what it's tied to from the array
Else 
Set Provided Blocks Light Value to 0

// Upon execution this should pull the current set Power Level of 7 from the defined values in the array which can be between 0 and 15 and then Set the Provided Blocks Light Value to 7 based upon Power Level 7 = Light Value 7.

Some things that should be added to arrays are a Goto procedure that if put in the array somewhere tells the interpreter to goto the defined row and column in the array for the goto procedure in the array. a pseudo example of goto would be if goto [5,B] was placed in the array at [2,B] or Set Provided Light Value to 2 it would goto [5,B] or set provided light value to 5 if Power level was set to 2.

Goto is a bad practice in programming so this definitely won't be added. Java doesn't even have real goto support.

For arrays, this is a nice idea. We will consider adding array support in the future.

Yes we need this! Glad to see that this didn't exist anywhere else.
