Well maybe rucky had enough of the one lava planet - and wants to see the other one I'm always mixing those two up. Bollocks! I think that is a urban legend. I almost never put down RCS's in their default orientation, no problem. I've put down backwards cockpit, no problem (all it 'messes up' is the key you have to press to undock - it depends on the directions of the ship, not the direction of the cockpit) . I don't think the core matters either - but that I haven't tested. But I can't see how it would - because it's another legend that you can fix messed up starter block rotation which turning of the core. But it doesn't work.
