Nope, I did mean an increase. More specifically, I'd like to see the thrust/input power ratio decreased; whether that happens by reducing thrust or increasing input power or both doesn't matter all that much to me. My reasoning is that, with the advent of auto-brake being toggleable, your thrusters will be idling a lot of the time, and you also don't need as much lateral thrust: you can simply turn your ship to point your main engines in the appropriate direction (and you don't need as many forward-facing thrusters either; want to slow down? flip and burn!). Ships that really require continually available high levels of lateral thrust (for assaulting POIs, say) would then end up being more specialized designs, rather than the default design. I will admit, though, that we still need CV-CV docking in order for this proposal not to completely screw over players wanting to transport HVs to planet surfaces.
