Thrust controller added and fog of war (and functioning antenna and dishes) added

[1.592] Thrust controller component added to game (looks the same as complex controller for now!)

[1.592] Thrust balancing algorithm fixes for various bugs

[1.592] Strategic antennas now used to combat the new fog of war added in this release
moved to both dev and stable branch
Fog of war? *Excitement intensifies*
yep =]

The thrust controller has a problem with it however , when you tell it to maximise torque to, for example, roll to the left, it will leave all thrusters ON that don't ruin the balance, which means generally speaking it'll do some fairly strange things and activate a bunch of thrusters it doesn't need and end up gaining quite a lot of translational motion. It shouldn't do this when asking for UPDOWN LEFT/RIGHT and FORWARDS/BACKWARDS motion however.
What exactly does that Fog of War do?
Hide enemy forces on the map?
Or also when within line of sight (so when you could see them with your camera, but they are still in the fog of war, do you see them)?

Also, will a high flying objekt clear the fog of war better than a ship?

EDIT: Just saw that you´re talking about it in the thread about what you are working on. WIll read through that now. Ignore this post, or delete it.
AHHHHHHH

Testing now!

SATELLITES! EVERYWHERE!!
I'm going to add a poll about the fog of war

Nice!

that was fast!

Will there be an AI card incoming that will be tied into the Thruster Controller?
