Force from propellers
Is there a way to get more force from propellers without placing a ton on the back of your ship? looks ugly.

RE: Force from propellers
There is a way to hack your blueprints in order to get a boosted propellor, I'll check to see if I can find out who knows how to do that.


Edit: Found who it was, Richard Dastardly.

I agree with all the above, the drag thing is a definite annoyance. Also agree about the drag/thrust balance, I'll try not to drag KSP into that again Tongue

You can try personal messaging him if he doesn't reply in a day or two. Someone else may also know and reply below.

Welcome to the forums, by the way.

Alternatively, you can put dedicated heliblades in the hull, set to moter driven 10.

RE: Force from propellers
Sorry there's no legitimate way to make props stronger. You can make internal flooded compartments with props in them though, they just need a path out of the ship, so you'll need a 1x1 hole in the bottom for them to work. If you don't like having a tiny hole in the bottom of your ship to allow this then you can solve that by using another dubious technique by adding a spinblock and patching the hole with a square corner piece. That way the hull is seamless and you aren't being too exploitative.

RE: Force from propellers
There's another more "cheaty" way, props on spinblocks. But sadly, no other way than spam or "cheats". I personally prefer "cheats", as spam must die.
Hope it will be sorted eventually...

RE: Force from propellers
Outright using spinblocks to mount them is too cheaty. The way I gave is mostly tournament legal, only quibble would be the spinblock hull patch, which I suggested making with the weakest possible piece of armor to assuage the guilt of being cheaty.
