Jet Engines are highly versatile and simple compared to Modular Engines as they only require fuel and throttle and can Rev much higher than Modular engines before breaking. They can be used for many things, even boats.

Pros:

  1. Better Torque-to-size Ratio compared to a similar sized modular engine
  2. Simple to construct requiring only a fuel input and throttle input
  3. Quicker to start (Ignites at 0.5 RPS)
  4. Can sustain lower speeds (down to 0.6 RPS)
  5. Higher Revving (up to 200 RPS before breaking if vehicle damage is enabled)
  6. Can't overheat

Cons:

  1. Loud
  2. Will be destroyed if the intake is submerged in the ocean (Repairable but difficult or impossible if the engine isn't fully exposed
  3. Lack of variety (Unlike Modular Engines, Jet Engines only come in one size rendering them less flexible overall)
  4. inconsistent throttle response (Slow responding in the low RPS range but very quick and snappy in the mid-high RPS range)
  5. Exhaust particles can cause physics lag (somehow)

An Example Of A Jet Engine


Part List[ | ]

Small Jet Intake (1x3x3)[ | ]

This part is Essential for sucking air into the Engine and provides better airflow at speed.

Large Jet Intake (2x7x7)[ | ]

Similar to the Small Jet Intake but the Large is of a turbo-fan design and generates thrust at high RPS.

Jet Compressor (5x3x3)[ | ]

The Compressor as it's name suggests, compresses air for the combustion chamber, The compressor also has a built in starter motor.

Jet Combustion Chamber (5x3x3)[ | ]

The beating heart of a jet Engine, Taking the compressed air and mixing it with fuel and heat to create combustion thus, a substantial increase in pressure.

Jet Turbine Small (2x3x3)[ | ]

The Turbine converts pressure into Electrical Energy.

Jet Turbine Medium (3x3x3)[ | ]

The Turbine converts pressure into Electrical energy, The Jet Turbine Medium also has an RPS Port which can be used to drive things like generators or be used to turn the engine.

Jet Exhaust (3x3x3)[ | ]

An Optional part that converts pressure into thrust.

Jet Exhaust Afterburner (5x3x3)[ | ]

An Optional part that converts pressure into thrust, The Jet Exhaust Afterburner also has a fuel port in order to mix fuel with any unburnt air for an extra bit of thrust.

Jet Exhaust Rotating (4x3x3)[ | ]

An Optional part that converts pressure into thrust, the Jet Exhaust Rotating can also be turned with a Number Input in order to redirect thrust, Unlike the Regular and Afterburner exhausts, the Jet Exhaust Rotating shoots out the side.

Jet Ducts[ | ]

There are a total of 5 Duct parts which can be placed between components of a jet engine

the following parts are:

  1. Jet Duct Straight (1x3x3)
  2. Jet Duct Angle (3x3x3)
  3. Jet Duct T (3x3x3)
  4. Jet Duct Cross (3x3x3)
  5. Jet Duct Diagonal (3x4*x3)

Odd Engine Designs[ | ]

Jet Engines don't have to be a simple Intake>Compressor>Combustion>Exhaust, as stated above, the Exhaust can be ignored if you just want Torque

Turbine Engines[ | ]

TurbinBoi

An Example Of A Turbine Engine (This Engine Is Considered An Extreme Example)

Due to a flaw in how pressure is divided, you can stick multiple Jet Turbine Mediums on the same engine with little to no loss of power on a single turbine, While possible to put turbines in series, this isn't ideal as the a turbine will consume pressure meaning the next turbine will produce less torque, The way to harness as much torque as possible is to put turbines in parallel with the use of T and Cross Ducts, These engines are very powerful but they have their drawbacks such as:

  1. A lot harder to start (The Built in starter motor of the compressor usually isn't suitable to start the engine as it can either take a very long time to to get the engine to 0.5 RPS or it never will, the use of an external starter is recommended)
  2. Throttle Response (Turbine Engines make con 4 more prevalent meaning they can be incredibly hard to tame)
  3. Lag (Too many turbines can lead to the game lagging a lot with just the engine spawned)
  4. Size (duh)

Closed Loop Engines[ | ]

ClosedEngine

An Example Of A Closed Loop Engine

ClosedWExhaust

An Example Of A Closed Loop Engine With An Exhaust

ClosedLoopTurbine

An Example Of A Closed Loop Turbine

A fairly odd concept, a Closed Loop Engine involves using ducts to connect the turbine's exhaust to the compressor's intake, bypassing the need for an intake entirely resulting in a fully waterproof Engine meaning it can be submerged with no risk of damaging the engine, you can also combine a Closed Loop Engine with a Turbine Engine.

a Closed Loop Engine however is less powerful than an equal sized open engine and does not produce thrust in space.

Exhaust stacking[ | ]

It's as the name suggests, using ducts to power a lot of exhausts.
