This idea is mainly only for aesthetics (so we don't have flying bricks all the time) by adding a new block type, but I figured no one would use them if they had no function.
The premise is a simple change to how struts function and add new triangular blocks in the form of armour segments to cover for their old positions as defense 'boosters'.
Hopefully this new system with armour segments will be used to replace struts for structural reinforcement and allow for the new struts to ignore 'no block placement' zones on propellers to allow you to build across things like engine pods.
So triangular blocks are a nope because they'd make collision detection much harder, sorry.
what about aestetic blocks? these just count as nothing, but can make ships looks cooler!
Aestetic blocks sound like a good idea, maybe they're in the decoration part and has no hitbox, I would like maybe a small animated flag on top of my dogfighter, or an antenna.
I would love to see these kinds of doo-dads implemented - masts, prows, fantails, railings etc.... More decoration choices too like a flipped set of mouths, flames, skulls, etc...
