Thrusters and blocking them
« on: October 15, 2017, 03:38:36 PM »
Hi,

I am unsure where I should post this, so I hope this does not count as double post. :) (I'm new)

I would love it if blocking thrusters would have consequences, so that smart ship design is rewarded even more.
That thrusters currently work exactly as before no matter how much material is stuffed right on top of them just feels very wrong to me and makes ship designing for me too simple - relatively speaking.

Being able to cover them allows you to decide what your ship looks like.  Not everyone wants a cube of flashing thrusters on the smooth hull they worked hard to achieve, why punish them? I think allowing thrusters to be covered *encourages* good ship design, besides thruster/gyro PLACEMENT is already required for a maneuverable ship.
