    Send the crew to their pods, come alongside the enemy ship and launch a broadside of torpedoes manned by a single crew member. These torpedoes have a shaped charge meant to allow the torpedo to punch through a ships hull where the boarding crew member can disembark and wreak havoc.

    What do you guys think?

    I don't think it does really need an update since you can built it by yourself with the already existing blocks.

    Uh.... you can already have this? Fairly certain I've seen a dozen videos of people who've made just that. And some pretty sophisticated launch systems as well.

    Oh... I see... Alright then, never mind this.

    With the new block, I don't think we will need a sophsiticated launch system anymore.

    Uh, considering the title of the game is 'space engineers' and not 'space marines', I think you're expected to do the work yourself...

    This! I'm going to battle much in this game, but the point (and difference from just straight space shooters) is that you need to engineer the mechanics for your ships to have the advantage over enemy!

    Yeah I should have clarified a bit. I don't really expect a boarding torpedo to be a selectable build item like a landing gear for example. I guess I was thinking more along the lines of what components that are not currently available would be needed to build such a thing properly. Maybe a new type of detonation device with a focused blast or something like that.

    ...and Space Marines are awesome.

    Well, I think after today's update you have your answer:
    - Mount side mounted gravity generator with gravity facing the direction to send torpedos, then turn power off.
    - Add landing gear next to gravity generator.
    - Create a torpedo using mass effect block and explosive block.
    - Copy and paste torpedo so it is next to the landing gear block (i.e. turns yellow).
    - Activate landing gear block.
    - Turn on gravity generator.
    - Fly your ship... when next to enemy hit P, which will turn off landing gear and release the torpedo(s).
    - Fly your ship into the hole created by torpedo and board.

    Use a few rockets on a weakpoint and be sure to have heavy armor slopes on the front.

    Use the mass block to increase inertia.
