    I noticed that player velocity is given by velocity of the ship.
    When leaving cockpit it goes down to 0.
    So when ship is travelling at a speed, then I leave the cockpit I end up few meters behind it (if there gravity and floor to land on it), if there is nothing to stop on - ship makes forever alone trip.
    Jetpack gives maximum speed of something about 10m/s.
    So if ship is travelling faster than jetpack's vmax, and I enable jetpack (even when heading same direction)my velocity drops and results are obvious.

    Shouldn't use of thrusts or jetpack cause constant acceleration/deceleration?



    *I have posted similar post in bugs post already, but I don't think it was noticed.

    One my biggest issues is when I'm doing flight tests and put the cockpit on top of the ship and get out and Boom I sometimes end up having like jetpack on even though I never did. It seems to derp up or not calculate right.
