Great Old One

I seem to recall that there was some kind of compensation mechanism on the Ringworld, but as these systems were breaking down, the Ringworld was becoming unstable.
The 'compensation mechanism' was only added in a sequel after the initial stability problem was pointed out.
But adding rocket motors to Ringworld probably introduced more problems than it solved. Where would the fuel for these rockets come from? Etc...
