But game won’t stop you. You won’t get very far tough.
Today I added more systems damage: fuel rods jamming, forced rods engagement under high acceleration, thrusters shutting down under high centrifugal forces and finally – reactor meltdown. Turbine shutdown pictured above is an old system, that was now exposed by broken reactor, as were misaligned thrusters. This is one K37 that really needs service.
You can still fly with all this damage, but the flight is increasingly difficult. It’s up to the player to choose between added difficulty and spending money on repairs – at least if he can get back to the station.
