i am finding that thrust dont mean alot in this game
its all about turning...anyone else?

except for maybe 3 thrust engines one should design
all turn engines...maybe?

maybe have 1 wingman with blinding speed
but your own ship you should focus on turn...

or do i suck...LOL

I always find turn far more useful, it helps avoid missiles and allows you to get into position faster. My most powerful ship is mobile enough to stay on the tail of any enemy fighter.

There are a few situations where thrust is useful:

After a collision with an asteroid/fighter/several missiles you need thrust to get going again. Low thrust can be a killer if you crash into something in the middle of an enemy turret ring or a large battle.

With a stealthy ship you need to be able to avoid getting too close to an enemy fighter, high thrust can slow you down rapidly in order to avoid this.

Theres probably some other uses I cant think of too :)

> One that I always find myself using is thrust forward then reverse and then forward again. It really helps when colliding with another ship and enables me to spray rockets and reverse to get out of his fire very rapidly.

> Still, another situation is running missiles out of gas! This is very useful for daycorns as they "dry up" fast.

> And last but not least, plectrons! Ouch! There are countless times where I am very maneuverable yet slow and headed straight into a plectron! Big time problem! BUT if you have strong thrust, you can (1) halt to a complete stop to avoid it (2) ram at full speed to have it miss you, or (3) reverse out of danger.

All those things make high maneuver and low thrust dangerous!
