The Engine and its lesser counterpart, the Shuttle Engine, are vital installations that allow the submarine to move in water.

Function[edit | edit source]

The engines only work if they receive a signal. This can be accomplished by connecting the velocity_x_out output of the navigation terminal to the set_force input of the engine.

While full-sized engines can quickly succumb to water damage, shuttle engines are totally waterproof. A Mechanic is able to fix either by using a welding tool and wrench.

When the set_force of an engine is unwired, it is possible to use the plus and minus buttons on the engine's GUI interface to set its force manually (at an increment of 1% force per click).

I/O Interface[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is also possible, to connect the velocity_y_out output of the navigation terminal to the set_force input of the engine to steer submarine, but the controls will be inverted when steering the submarine (vertical control will become horizontal).
