Specific blocks explode when destroyed

Hi there!

Without implementing new blocks and probably adding unneeded complexity to the game, I would love to see some of the blocks explode when damaged.


This will greatly influence PvP/PvE and ship design, as armour would be needed to stop the ship from getting ripped into pieces. Engineers would think twice before stuffing everything into the outer shell of their big destroyer and maybe put more effort in placing decoys and armouring the ship.


I would love to see your suggestions of which blocks should explode on impact. Hydrogen tanks and small/big reactors are kinda late game blocks that carry dangerous stuff inside and could be replaced by other blocks to prevent this damage. While designing engineers would need to ponder whether they want to use these powerful blocks or they want to minimize the risk of getting annihilated.

Thank you all for reading!

or you could just make small, agile ships that are too agile to be hit, like is already the best tactic to prolong your ships existence in battle

"just make small, agile ships"

with

"Hydrogen tanks and big reactors"

I must be missing something. Most of my fighters are smaller than a large grid hydro tank. Care to post a link to any small and agile workshop ship with those blocks?

Same rule applies for small large grids, that's what I was meaning
