Add a part variant with no "shroud" (the thing that extends into craft) to docking port


Recommended Posts

Dockidg ports sometimes can look ugly when their "shroud" isn't sunk into craft they're mounted on.

I think a variant with that thing removed (or shortened considerably) would be nice little addition to thr game.
Editing that model that probably won't require that much effort too.

Here's a few pictures I've edited to show how it may look like:

I understand your logic but I find they all sit flush already when used with the right size? If there are any that aren’t for whatever reason you could just offset them in the editor.

Most basic example: mount a docking port on a wing. A part of it's model will be poking through the other side. Makes some things, like mounting points, or articulated ports, look weird.  That's what I'm talking about.

Ah ok then yes it would poke through in that example! Sounds a bit of a niche application though. That said it doesn’t serve any purpose really so I wouldn’t miss it if they removed it.

I think it does have a purpose, it's so that it doesn't look weird when you attach it radially to a cylindrical part. That's why I'm suggesting to add variant instead of outright removing it.

Right yes I see now.
