New Blocks: Thrusters
The game now has new blocks to control your ship's maneuverability! Thruster blocks will influence the yaw, pitch and roll speed of your ship.
Additionally, they're also used for braking, flying backwards and reducing drift, by steering the ship into the direction it is looking. While this may sound complicated, all of the above will work fully automatically.
Depending on where the thruster blocks are placed on the ship their influence will be stronger or weaker. Thrusters placed far away from the rotation axis will have stronger impact on the rotational speed around that axis.
To see how it works in practice, see the demonstration below. The video also contains a peek on the reworked building mode. This is still work in progress. The new blocks will be released with the upcoming version 0.7.
