Just had the build spark suddenly come back, literally built this thing in a single day to shake off the rust so appologies if its not up to my old level of quality. Its got some nice rail antenas with an in-ship toggle and a super simple airlock that I'm honestly not proud of. Anyway please...
So apparently a few posts were accidentally taken down due to some over enthusiastic moderation, as a memeber of the community I feel it is my duty to put at least one of them back in its place (now is my meme)
For the record 30km away from the core is the maximum amount as the build area is just under 64km across roughly centred on the core. Any blocks placed beyond this boundry will add mass but will not do anything else and will vanish when the ship is reloaded.
I don't even... if all this is true I can't even begin to describe the stupid. Its practically a health bar mechanic at this point only a healthbar you can't see that has very little to do with what other systems you have on the ship.
