That's a big one to be off by. :)

Voxel volume limit has been increased from 800 000 kv to 1 600 000 kv
Ooo, this is big. I look forward to the huge ships coming soon. They'll just have to watch out for that pipe limit.

Allow Thruster Nozzle to increase max thrusts of Basic ship thrusters
Does this look anything like my idea (which may have actually been your idea):
For ease of development, couldn't the current thrusters be used but have different component variations that provide different amounts of thrust, effectively filling many roles in the same form-factor.

Maybe you could have really expensive parts that push way harder than their cheaper counterparts. I'm sure many of you out there would be willing to pay 10-20 million for a box thruster that is 5x more powerful.

For balance, the better components could be more expensive, like FCUs and tradeoff between thrust, fuel consumption, energy consumption, fuel type, acceleration time etc.

It would only take a new color scheme, some dials tweaked, and updating the shops for this to be added.

Fixed insideSafeZone -field not working correctly
Finally. I'd rather not embarrass myself again by getting into fights in the safe zone.
