Ladder Drag Cube Occlusion

Recommended Posts

So, I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but ladders have a ridiculous amount of drag. I've had them create as much drag as a Big-S Shuttle Wing on some occasions. Now, is there any nice way to make drag cubes check for other drag cubes existing in the same space, or would this be an absolute nightmare for anyone to code? I don't know a thing about modding on KSP, so I am posting this as a request, but if anyone knows some of the basics on how to do this, I'd be willing to try my hand at it.

I can't help you with that, but I can tell you how to make the drag cube of the ladder smaller. If that's an acceptable workaround :P

Is there any defensible reason why ladders are not 'physicsless' and near-zero drag? By design, they are not really meant to have their own 'volume', but be almost fully embedded into whatever part they are attached to.

I really don't know. As is, I'm considering learning to make plugins anyways, so I might try something weird with drag cube occlusion.
