    I think that there should be a block that could create artifical gravity on the space stations because I get very annoyed when I try to go up stairs and I jump 50 blocks in the air.

    I might be wrong, but if you're in a space station in real life with an altitude the same as the ones in galacticraft, aren't you in zero gravity anyway? This leads me on to my point that if you're not standing on one of these artificial gravity blocks (which are a really good idea by the way) what should happen is you drift away. Although, there are some obvious problems with that :p .

    you technically are not in zero g, you are just in free fall and it just looks like you are in zero g

    To create Artificial gravity, you will need to create a rotating centrifuge. To do that, you would need to make a big circular pit so the arm could rotate.

    you are thinking in terms of reality..but we don't use single stage rockets to get to orbit or anywhere in the solar system
    artificial gravity shouldn't be limited to current tech

    There will be advanced Rockets for traveling to further Planets (Saw the textures for it on the old GitHub)

    you still don't use a single stage rocket to get into orbit

    which is what I was saying earlier, we don't need to limit it to just rotating sections, (which would be a PITA to do right unless you count that UGOCraft mod)

    why dont we just magnetized floor boards. if u fall off u it demagnatized. the block u use to magnetize is congifurable so u can change the gravity power:D

    you know that he could just add spin thrusters pointing down

    Centrifugal force is a no go, I've discussed this with the developers already and it's not going to be a "thing". When your standing on the "deck/floor" you walk around as you would on the overworld, you also have the grapple and it works faster than you could walk/run.
