Ship falling when a rotor is connected

Snoop Dog shared this bug 17 months ago

If a rotor is connected to your ship with a load on it, and you are in a natural gravity well, the ship's inertial dampeners will not hold it up. I do expect it to drag one side of the ship down slightly more than the other (due to torque), but the dampeners should still be able to hold this ships mass + rotor mass up off the ground. I also would expect gyroscopes to know when the rotor is exerting a rotational force on the ship and then be able to automatically fight it.

This also affects turning using gyros. the ship will roll and pitch and yaw in undesired directions based on where the excess mass of the rotor subgrid is.
