    Hi Bullet_Force,

    Thanks for reaching out to Keen.

    Although there isn't an official release date for our next big update, I can assure you that the Space Engineers Team is currently working hard to improve the game's Tutorial, Survival, experiment with new features, fix bugs and optimize Multiplayer as much as possible.

    Cheers! :)

    Hi, not sure if this is bug or i missed a setting somewhere, but i can't edit or rename any new blueprints in creative mode. I have only the delete option.

    Try by disabling the "Cloud" option in > game options

    Some members had to do so to fix this weird problem, weird because "Cloud" is enabled on my side and all good.

    Thanks, disabling it (and restarting map/server) helped.

    Wait 15 minutes to restart it... unless you're not very good at making logical decisions and observations.

    Stumbled over this picture of yours, Stardriver, and have to ask a question. Those omnidirectional or RCS thrusters, which give here white exhausts to five sides, what mod is this? I searched on workshop and could not find them. Are they only for atmosphere or do they also exist for maneuvering in space? Please, would you give me the workshop link?

    Well, they're part of the NASA Mod Pack. Next month (November) that mod will be four years old. The link is to the last updated version I am aware of, which happened about three years ago, which was the DX-11 update, I believe. There were issues with the module walls not being airtight, and there were a lot of more popular mods around that year so this one remained off the radar for most people but is one of my favorites.

    The motors in question are actually two parts. The individual nozzles can actually be placed anywhere just like any other se thruster. They are, in fact, ion thrusters. They are about half the thrust of a standard small ion thruster, which means they're not great for getting up to top speed quickly but very nice for delicate operations around other structures. They use relatively little power so I leave them on in atmosphere. This ship only has atmospheric thrust for lateral movement. All the downward thrust is hydrogen or ion. All the upward thrust is ion. As with all parts from the modpack, I use them because they make spacecraft look like spacecraft, and they don't look out of place in an otherwise vanilla game. I tend to choose mods based on that criteria.

    They are large grid only. I wanted to use them to make a ship of this type, and that is the only reason this ship is large grid. It was intended to be a crew transfer vehicle and therefore didn't really need to be this big. Since I was stuck using large grid blocks I added the extra cargo capacity because there was room.

    Thanks, will check out.
    No wonder I could not find them under terms like 'omnidirectional' if they hide in a NASA mod pack. And I am not surprised they are in there, because this kind of maneuvering thrusters I really remember having seen on spacecraft of the Apollo program.
    Good news they are ion, I am mostly in space.
    Bad news it's only large grid, as I imagined them on my small grid freighter line.

    Well then, you might consider the FM_KerbalEngines Mod. These are all NASA inspired hydrogen rocket motors of varying sizes from very tiny to very large by SE standards. NASA inspired, but "copied" from Kerbal Space Program. I'm not certain, but I believe there is a large and small grid version of each block, or at least some of them. That's where the other engines on my ship came from.

    Can't copy-paste/select on programmable block or text panels.
    The same time copy-pasting ships or terminal block ctrl-a selecting works fine.

    Can't test my script :/
    Is there any another way to paste in changed script?

    The 1.187.206 update broke the CTRL key in the game text editor. Yesterday at 1.187.205 all was good. Now in all of the CustomData CustomText, PB code i have no cursor and no CTRL+ operations, also bottom buttons is always focused (Ok, Check Code ....). I tried to check up the game files. 1.186 version in beta-testing works fine. Then i back to 1.187.206, CTRL is still broken. Just aaaaaaaaaaaa!
