Small Thruster provides a small amount of force in a single direction. Placement of any thruster will provide thrust in a single direction at the center of mass regardless of placement.
Small Thrusters can be set to continuously provide force with the "Thrust Override" function. For Large Ship Thrust, this is from 2.88 KN to 288 KN. For Small Ship Thrust this is 120 N to 12 KN.
See Thruster mechanics for more details about this block's effects.
The power consumed by a Small Thruster depends on whether or not it is active or used for inertial dampening. The dampening value only applies if the thruster is activated automatically to slow the ship, not when responding to player commands, even if dampeners are turned on at the time. In this state, power consumption is 50% greater than firing thrusters manually.
A Small Thruster takes up a 1x1x2 block space on both large and small ships. It attaches to other blocks on its cube-shaped section, but does not attach on the thruster cone. The blast of the small thruster causes damage to the four blocks placed directly behind it.
Update 01.022, thrusters will deal damage to blocks and players in the Survival game mode.
