I have a question about battleships and thrusters.

Are there any thrusters that will propel a battleship forward significantly or are thrusters just not powerful enough to do so?

I have two thrusters equipped on a Dreadnaught and when I hit tab it increases the thrust by only 1. The thrusters are a combat thruster and one of those special mine thrusters from Illumnion.

I haven't bothered to ask a merchant for merchant thrusters yet because I'm not sure if they'll do anything more than what I already have.

battleships can't be fitted with any good thruster that will make a difference, even merchant thrusters wont make it go any faster, the only real thing about merchant thrsusters is that they don't run out of power, but BSs will only go 1 faster except to admin thrusters, and even those suck on BSs

Thanks for the information Goultek.

I kind of figured that was the case, but I also kind of hoped that there might be some special battleship thrusters I didn't know about. That would be cool.

I guess lack of maneuverability is the price you pay for firepower and a thick hull. That makes sense.

If you have the Deadnaught, the Freelancer Liberty Navy Battleship, It doesn't thrust like the others do, sry.

Oh, so other battleships in the Underverse have an acceleration of more than +1 when their thrusters are used?

Negative, too much mass.

For speed you need a saucer or a camara
