Landing plates

The idea is to build plates that would be immune to the truster damage and absorb the kinetic energy from landing gears of the ships, but the armour of the plates would be the same as a light armour blocks have. Thise plates will be good just for building landing pads or for interior.

Engine Shielding

[We need some type of shielding for landing bays which prevents engine damage.] The update which now causes engines to be destructive was something we have been hesitantly awaiting for quite some time, but now that it is here there are a some problems which we didn't foresee. Landing/Docking results in a choice between slamming into the ground and not being able to take off again or putting massive holes in the floor ...more »

Specialized Landing Pad

I'd like a pad specially designed to be resistant/immune to thrusters and also to minor impacts. This pad can be put onto our ships and bases to land our small ships on. No longer will we have to repair our landing pads after landing/taking off! However we don't want these pads to be used as everyday armor, so we should greatly increase the resources required.

Allow electricity to flow through langing gear.

This would not only allow ships to recharge upon landing on a station, but if you put an expensive large bulky solar array your ship and don't want to take it into combat. You could detach the part and let it drift while you take a now more maneuverable battle ship into battle with a reactor that uses uranium. (or make batteries solar friendly) This would make those inverted landing gears on stations very useful for ...more »

Purpose of Planets

Right now it's unclear what the purpose of landing on planets is. The Keen Developers are waiting for the community to suggest ideas. The purpose of planets could be as follows: OPTION 1: You spawn on planets, forage & scavenge items from ruins/natural resources and build your way to space. From space, due to fuel limitations, you can only explore near space until you are strong enough to finally leave your home planet ...more »

More durable landing gears

Currently Landing Gears are too easy to destroy when you land on a planet. I've hope that devs could add vertical springy movement to them, so it would be easier to land using all Landing Gears without breaking any. Also, I think that there should be some kind of warning if there aren't enough gears to keep locked ship on another with 100% chance that it wouldn't break itself or detach from the ship which is used as ...more »

Landing blocks

These blocks would be heavy armor on steroids, but would only exist as cubes which are very heavy in order to deter shipbuilders from using them to make invincible ships. Although landing legs are now much stronger, the materials they land on are not and that results in a very dented landing bay if one is in a hurry. It would be good to have these landing blocks which could also offer the opportunity for linking of ...more »
