Torus Gravity Generator - New Block for SE

I had an idea while tinkering with the idea of spin gravity and thought I'd try to recreate it in SE (not by modding it). I learned that using spherical gravity is buggy and normal gravity is wonky, so I thought that it would be fun if the game had a new type, torus.


How it works:

The central core spins generator components around at a high speed fast enough to simulate constant gravity around the generator, but not above or below it. The speed wouldn't be tweakable, but the power of the generators would (works just like normal generators).

A positive value pulls inward, negative pushes outward.

Components:

Large

Computer:50

Motor:6

Girder:12

Large Steel Tubes:4

Construction Components:50

Gravity Generator Components:4

Steel Plate:80


Small

Computer:25

Motor:3

Small Steel Tubes:4

Girder:6

Large Steel Tubes: 2

Gravity Generator Components:2

Construction Components:40

Steel Plate:40


Although can go on a small ship, only 50% Earth Gravity is acheivable, any attempts to go higher will cause the value (like motors) to become red. This appears because the compact size starts ripping itself apart. The generator will slowly get damaged and soon explode if left running at this for a long time.
