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.
- Box, triangle and manoeuvring thrusters provide 50000, 25000 and 5000 thrust respectively.
