Thanks! that makes sense!
Im not sure if this is a bug or just my ineptitude, but I am having an issue with avionics while simulating my ships. I built a manned ship, and simulated it with a pilot in it, I got "insufficient avionics" and cannot steer. I was under the impression avionics were not required for controlling a manned ship, has this changed? is there any documentation anywhere describing the how the avionics system works?
