Rapier Engine


Recommended Posts

Yes, and that's the same for all the jet engines since at least 1.0. It's because there is no model for the engine's turbine (they briefly added one in 1.0, but it was removed in 1.0.5), but since the turbine is supposed to be there it offsets the CoM forwards.

(Very useful to lower the CoM of rovers, to prevent unplanned flipping.)

Still makes me chuckle when people get all fussy about 'no clipping engines and fuel tanks' rules on challenges or shared craft. Your engines are *literally* always clipped... they just made that part invisible.
