Thrusters are a mandatory part of spaceships in order for them to be able to fly. At least one thruster is required in each ship.
Thrusters determine which directions spaceships can be flown and at what speed, and they require power and propellant to function.
A cable drawn from the power source must be attached to the base of the thruster for correct distribution of power.
- There are three different thruster types available:
- Box thrusters
- Triangle thrusters
- Maneuver thrusters
- To be able to fly, a spaceship needs at least a one thruster.
- Box and triangle thrusters are big "main" thrusters and consist of multiple parts that need to be bolted together.
- Maneuver thrusters enable small movements of the ship such as adjusting yaw and pitch.
- Thrusters need to be bolted to a base plate that has access to propellant and electricity.
- Thrusters need to be in the same data network as the FCU flight control unit.
- Thrusters require power to function.
- A thruster also requires propellant to function.
- To get propellant, a pipe has to be drawn between the device hardpoint and a gas container.
