    Sure thing. Keep us posted, if you guys decide you want to add in gravity generators there are some other ways it can be done, without the use of magnets.

    Right now if you go to your own space station its a pain in the ass to move around since there is no gravity. Also its sometimes hard in the moon and mars. Also in asteroids where the gravity is too high. So my suggestion is to have a gravity generator that will make the gravity just right. Like in the overworld. It will require energy of course. And i think it should take in like twice as the oxygen sealer does.

    People say its implemented yet i do not see it anywhere in the game.

    People asked that Space Station should be zero-gravity, that is implemented. What is not implemented is a machine that generates gravity.

    Then why does it say "implemented"

    "Gravity on space stations and planets (8 threads) (implemented!)"

    Yes, that's not precise. I changed that to "Partially implemented". The thing is I didn't want to mark every topic if it's implemented or not (there are about 150 topics already), I rather marked just the category to avoid information over-clogging.

    Merging is better for this case.

    EDIT: Done.

    Artificial gravity is implemented. You have to understand actual science though. You make a large station, preferably one with "arms", spin. The centrifugal force creates gravity.

    However, the effect is has is very small currently. I'd like to see the force that the spin thrusters has increased, it would be an extremely cool way to make effective artificial gravity!

    Maybe it could be an attachment to Oxygen Sealers, giving fully sealed rooms regular gravity (or even making the gravity configurable).

    Yet no machine it self that creates gravity efficiently.

    Like said before. Creates centripetal force, and the capability to generate gravity realistically. Also a machine, as you've stated in your preference for gravitational devices....

    The spin thrusters will make overworld gravity if the station is large enough

    Try using the star miner mod for art. Grav.

    This idea for the space station: create a new block to manipulate gravity. counteract gravity

    why not create it?

    Artificial gravity has already implemented, just not in the way that you are suggesting it. If you make a station large enough and add spin thrusters to it, you can create centripetal force and create gravity on a space station. I much prefer it this way, because it actually makes sense and follows real world physics.
