Why does my ship list? (Closed)
So have u ever built a really cool ship, that was completely semetrical in design on both sides, but when u finally decide to take it for a test run, the ship tends to list towards one side, even tho ur steering the vessel strait? What are some of the contributing factors that causes this listing issue to occure? For an example I found out that by having widly spaced propellers on each side, away from the center of the bow of the vessel will cause this listing to occure. So try to remember to keep your props that u add onto your creation as close as to the center / middle of the haul, of the bow section. I hope to hear many great things to help solve this annoying problem, Thanks.

Check for any randomly glitched blocks on the side that pulls. If that isnt it its most likely a balance thing too much ballast on one side or you mismatched by mistake such as using regular ballast on one side and accidentally putting heavy ballast ob the other. If thats not it check you rudders and make sure you dont have a high point of gravity it may be causing a pull. If not say F*** it scrap your design start from the ground up. I usually find a fresh canvas is the best canvas.

Keep the ballast and weight towards the outside rather than in. Widen the ship itself. The wider it is the more spread out the weight is. Also make sure it isnt top heavy which can be a tipping factor.

I erased the middle ballast from the USS Legit(my boat) and replaced it with hull and it added about 20 knots. Thanks bro!

Same thing my stability 200 angle 0 just put heavy things on the side it's not tilting or add a propeller on the side that is tilting but there's 1 more which will or might decrease speed just put 1 propeller on the middle

Sometimes, if u put your guns which are different from each other at different sides, the ship would usually list to the heavier side. Try to put the guns in a symmetrical position or just put them single file. Once, I had a very, very powerful ship that can withstand anything. But the problem was that it would spin out of control at 99knots (not funny!) and that stupid thing would compromise the aim. Later, I found out that I used 600 mm on one side and 400mm on the other. Hope that helped

I found that even when my ship is suposed to be going straight it never is when my rammer the assasin in its test run was angled to the side a bit it's not a major problem but if your ship is doing more than that it could be like my sub jaws/Bruce it is like a shark with teeth but even though the weight is even it still moves to one side I think it's the way the water goes around it so you have make sure the nose of the ship is pointed or the not reccomended flat nose also check in the hull of your ship, when I did I found 2 random 20cm guns make sure you check in your test that your ship is not moving and check to see if the hull is further on one side than on the other if don't try to add ballast weight to counter your ship moving to one side and find the problem if nothing works then just add lots of large fins as a last resort

Or you can buy a 600cm hull (46cm guns can be added) that will not lean and you can make a cool ship out of it, thats how I made my cool ship

Try deleting the bottom of the ship but only leaving the deck that should work, it did for me
