Nerf Jetpacks

Jetpack Engineers is a Great Game! Why make a fighter when someone can repeatedly respawn and attack it with a grinder and a jetpack faster than most ships you can make? Why make a scout ship when you can just pack a load of hydrogen bottles and fly anywhere?

Seriously, the massive amount of power SE's jetpacks have are really unbalanced. Engineers as a whole are waaaay too fast, no human can run at 10m/s.. And yes, relative dampeners are useful for building on moving ships, but not really when they can be used to lock onto enemy ships and grind them, which they can't do anything about unless they have turrets, which most fighters don't have. Jetpacks are OP. Please nerf and make Space Engineers about making Space Ships again.

There is an option in Advanced World Settings to disable jetpacks. There are also mods that will reduce the power of jetpacks.

I think this suggestion would be better as a request to change from the current enable/disable jetpack option to a slider for "jetpack power" where 0 is "no jetpack" and 1 is the current jetpack level (speed/strength/whatever).

Full switching off the jetpack and its restriction, these are different things. Jetpak must be completely turned off on the planet, but to leave it in space in a trimmed form (without limiting the maximum speed, but to reduce acceleration and fuel). It cannot be done using the mod correctly. It is always possible to soar or slide on the surface of the planet with the help of it.

This should be the option when creating a server. To each can choose your game mode.
