vehicles are slowed down WAY to much when they enter the water. it is impossible to make anny kind of moving seaplane, ship, or boat

    The submerged drag alone is positively bonkers, but is exacerbated further by an apparent lack of any planing force, or "lifting body"-type lift as your waterspeed increases. Hydrofoils don't seem to help. I wonder - does underwater drag increase with no correspondent increase to underwater lift?
    For now, the only way you can simulate a useful amount of planing is by mounting screws vertical beneath a hull, setting them to spin proportional to your speed.

    I'm not sure of the accuracy of the simulation but I do agree that it feels like it's too much drag. i can barely take off without vertical lift. I feel like it should be more similar to simpleplanes style drag instead of a brick wall?

    I think this bug has been fixed in 0.9.918(maybe earlier).
    With a long Nose Cone and some powerful engines, such as large solid boosters, you can get to SUPERSONIC speed in water easily.
    With 1024 engines piled up in a craft and a 50m long Nose Cone in the front of it, I 've got to 5344m/s underwater——faster than the escape velocity of Droo——without using any cheating methods such as Tinker Panel and xml changing.
    There's a video:

    But something that is very dense can move very fast for serveal seconds in the water. I made an object with over 1t/cm3 density and it dropped in the sea at 2907m/s, then it punched the sea bottom at 3011m depth and 2844m/s.

    I know, I mean it’s way too exaggerated. A seaplane that is super fast in the Air barely moves in the water @DPSAircraftManufacturer

    Is it possible to make ships now?
