Description

As shown in the screenshots, there is no option to assign the thrust limiter of vernor engines to a custom axis. This also applies to all other thrusters.

I have some uses for this, none of which are really critical, but would make my gameplay more comfortable. It just seems like a strange omission, especially when the SAS seems to throttle vernor engines down to some extent.

My uses:
  • Precision docking when building space stations
  • Precision vector alignment so the ship doesn't drift too far during EVA construction
  • Precision manouvering where this cannot be achieved by thrust-limiting the engine

Version is given by the launcher as "3077". I think that corresponds to 1.11.1, but I'm not sure.

I feel a bit foolish now. I loaded up another ship the same size as OrbiTank (the orange one pictured), and found I'd already fitted a second set of much smaller thrusters. I added an action group to toggle the thrusters between large & small, & was good to go. (Great start for my first bug report here: it looks entirely unnecessary.)
