Ships with subgrids and only hydro thrusters drift in natural gravity

Jonathan Werger shared this bug 2 years ago
Solved

Ships with subgrids, for example a small grid custom turret on a large grid ship, and only hydrogen thrusters drift slowly downwards in natural gravity, usually at less than 1 m/s (speed is constant). Placing a single Ion or Atmo thruster on the ship (direction does not matter) stops and prevents the drifting.

The heavier the subgrids and the lighter the ship is, the faster the drifting speed.

same here. you can restart the game to solve this for the moment, but it will return if you change anything on the grid. In my case it was a large grid ship (relativly small one) with a piston and 4 drills on the piston.

Just built an Atmospheric Carrier, any small grid or subgrid connected to it automatically causes it to start drifting and listing to one side. The ship has more than enough power to carrier both itself and a heavy load.

Same issue for me. It wasnt fixed in 199.020 (im on 199.025 default). My ship is still drifting in the atmosphere because it has pistons with drills.

Same issue here - I have a planetary mining ship with plenty of atmo thrusters, working fine with a drill on the front. I removed the small grid drill to add a hinge, re-added the same small grid drill, now I kept drifting down. I added 4 more vertical thrusters and it had no effect. At least now I know the ship wasn't too heavy!
