Here i changed the COM macro to size the spheres according to the mass. That is very handy cause it indicates that the main contributors do have their COM around the center of the ship where they belong plus because of that only very little rudder action is needed to go up and down.
Get ready for shoulder clapping and tin medals reception ...
Very nice addition !
I think I'll add a button to do it in the macro :shoulder clapping:

@shupin

since the FC "Material" probably takes a while to accomplish, could we get a "set default density" button and input field for the time beeing ?
Now i do change the macro for every "main" material in the selection so i do only have to set a few remaining bodies.

BTW very nice job, your macro ...

Yes indeed, I'll add a "set default density" box at the top to set all solids to a specified value.
I put that in the todo list !

The great blue one fresh from the body shop. Matt clear coat tomorrow. Some dents remain and only very few runners.
I declare this the new 2m class i.e. to be viewed from 2m distance.
Rudder sections finished and shaped. Made from Finnboard layers.

Nope. I stick to old fashioned tissue and nylon design technology ...

Sorry, I was too short in my question. Do you plan to design some mounts for cameras to make a video of a dive, underwater footage, underwater remote control,... When you showed the finished ballast tank I thought how cool will be to record a video of the dive from the subs point of view...
