Description
This mod adds 3 blocks that are basically advanced rotors with different mounting points.

Details
- Models' tube animates when turning and ragdolls when top grid is missing.
- Models have construction models, LODs and are paintable.
- Construction components are exactly the same as vanilla advanced rotors to maintain the same behavior.
- Collisions are smaller than the full block to allow fitting in tight spaces.
- Lower and upper limit sliders are capped to -90 to 90 degrees.
- No displacement.
- No "add small top part", you can still connect them but I don't recommend it.


Thanks
Harag - for his blender addon and for his provided help to get me started with modelling SE.
Arindel - for suggesting grading and providing the raw grading image (in the old models)

Thanks for the new texture, it looks good. How to increase the force at the small hinge?

Was trimming my subs and noticed the new thumbnail for this. Might be time to give the articulated arm another try...

Hmm, that shouldn't have any issue... are you sure it's not the piston that collides?

In physics view you can see how tiny the physics shapes are on these: https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/2435761402476500263/706385F5976F2072701BE075B8708C8D66188589/ (F11 in offline mode)

Can you show a screenshot of the hinge position?

The new rubber hinges look nice, a great art.

I need to note however that there seems to be a change in collision models, a ship with locked and inertia sharing hinges started slightly shaking. The hinges move inside a one block wide hollow area, and the custom blocks (graphene/carbon) didn't change. Using small blocks.

You are my hero! This looks amazing! I see the potential of finding new and exciting ways of blowing myself up.

Man those models look so good. Really fits the components in with the rest of the ship. I like the tubular centre piece, looks like how they designed that rigid space suit :)

Those new models are superb, mate. Really well done!
