Option to disable staging on engines and Action Groups

Recommended Posts

Self explanatory. When "Advanced Tweakables" are engages, give players the option to disable staging on engines. Should be a small coding change.

Also make it possible to change action groups on the fly, while using a craft. There are mods that do this I'm told, but it would be better if that was built into the game.

I agree, wanted this feature since day1 since there are many situations i NEVER want an engine to stage like at all (VTOL engines and some engines that are never used say structural SRBs that dont ever get used).  We got it for fairings (which many use as structural components), we got it for decouplers (there are also many cases where id rather manually decouple vs staging), ect.  Its about time engines got this feature too...

I don't use SRBs as structural members. I use SRBs as SRBs. But I agree with you, engines should have this option, if only as a safety measure against accidental activation.

While we're at it, I also would like to have the option to toggle a preset for the thrust limiter on/off. This would be handy for those multicore rockets where the center core throttles down after lift-off and throttles back up after booster sep.
