A quick search didnt show me any similar threads. I would like your opinion on this. I find it quite irritating that thrusters can be placed inside ships and still remain fully functional. Even when the thruster exhaust is sealed shut by another block. I am not sure how difficult it would be to implement a "deadzone" behind thrusters where no blocks can be placed but since I believe it wouldnt be that difficult, I have to assume that the current way is intended. Now obviously a lot of people will frown upon this concept because it would mean redesigning existing blueprints that make use of the current system where thrusters are buried behind layers of armour. For the sake of immersion, visuals and balance though, would you prefere having to place thrusters so there is nothing obstructing the exhaust ? Other than the obvious effect of being able to target thrusters directly, it would also lead to higher tier thrusters becoming more desirable since thruster-placement would now be limited to the outside layer, so you have to work with the surface area of your vessel in contrast of being able to utilize the entire volume of the vessel. That means the additional length of high tier thrusters does not decrease space where you could have stacked smaller thrusters behind each other beforehand. I would prefere it this way.
