Steps to reproduce

Easiest to reproduce with missiles, requires target to have docked entites on it.

  1. Reduce SHP to below 55% of a docked entity on a target for its parent entity to lose ship thrust/directional control
  2. If the entity remains docked to the parent entity it appears that the parent entity continues to have no control (the timer refreshes as the entity is "still" below the 55% SHP trigger amount)
Tester information (Internal use only)
  1. Make a ship and dock something to it
  2. Do /entity_set_structure_hp_percent 0.51 on the docked entity
  3. Get in the main ship and try to fly around

-> you can't, you're experiencing the loss of control SHP effect from your docked entity

-validated- & -confirmed-

The SHP effect goes down the chain and it shouldn't. Most likely related with the momentum effect changes.
Already fixed in latest pre-build.
