    I returned to the game after a long while upon hearing the physics were improved, and I was really surprised how well it works! The rotors and pistons play nice with each other, and I spent the day making a massive mining rig with an arm incorporating multiple rotors and pistons. Nothing broke, Klang was nowhere to be found. Even the wheels seem to work better!

    Also, grids not tearing themselves apart when they bump means you can make rotor limiters out of normal blocks, something I love since I cannot stand manually entering rotor limits and all that. You can see how I made them in the image above.

    Not having my rotors and pistons tear themselves apart when I manipulate them is a great feeling.

    Proper physics really opens up a lot of possibilities. You done good on this update Keen, next up: More gameplay features.

    Me and my new favorite mining vehicle salutes you Marek!

    in thoery no they wont. however bad design will still cause alot of issues so i expect to see things go bang and people moan about it instead of enjoy the challenge of making something work.
