Space Ships and their wonky behavior.

I'm sure this has been brought up before, but building a ship is incredibly difficult at times. I often find myself needing to stand on top of it to build certain parts, but this usually ends up in the ship either floating upward, or when I place something they will snap and fly away.

This also applies to ones I've finished as well.
Would it be possible to have a way to ground ships to the floor, or keep them in place while building? And have a landing gear to keep them grounded when not in use?

If this has been talked about before I apologize.

There still are some bugs in spaceship physics that can be annoying, like the one where the ships move when we walk on it. We are working on this issues.

In the time being (in story mode, as in creative mode you can fly with F2, preventing this issue), you can build a workshop/shed before building a vehicle. Yes this is a construction game :-) Professional mechanic build & repair cars under a roof in a secure environment. This will prevent you ship to fly away. You may also be crushed between a wall and your ship. Oh, no, don't worry, just kidding, as the ship don't do collision damage (yet?).

Using the jetpack makes it hard to target the blocks as it moves fast, so it's not a good solution. You can build a structure around with some trash blocks to gain access to elevated places, like we would do in real life if we wanted to build a mech warrior of 30 feet, like we do at Cubical in our free time.

Why don't we build a small facility that uses said hover technology to float the control block like 6 blocks above ground or freezing device. ENTIRELY FROZEN. Then we can easily go ontop of it. Once it's built we can enter the seat, and drive away. It's then in it's dynamic state once outside of said facility, but once we drive it back we can edit / repair it as it would freeze up again.
