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, though they can still be used as main thrusters on smaller ships.
- Thrusters need to be bolted to a base plate that has access to propellant and electricity.
- 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.
- Box thrusters provide 500 000 thrust
- At maximum thrust Box thrusters use 23.3 propellant per second and 140 electricity per second.
- The price for a box thruster is around 68,000 credits
- Triangle thrusters provide 300 000 thrust
- At maximum thrust Triangle thrusters use 35 propellant per second and 17.5 electricity per second.
- Maneuver thrusters provide 50 000 thrust
- At maximum thrust Maneuver thrusters use 11.7 propellant per second and 5 electricity per second.
