Combustion Drive

The Combustion Drive is a technology that allows the construction of Small Cargo and Large Cargo ships, Light Fighters, Recyclers, and Espionage Probes. In addition, all ships that use the Combustion Drive will have their Base Speed increased by 10% for every level of the Combustion Drive technology.

In addition to increasing the maximum speed of the appropiate ships, increasing the levels of any drive technology can reduce fuel consumption in one of two ways: First, as the maximum speed increases due to the increase in drive technology, a player could reduce the speed of any fleet that has been affected by the improvement of said drive technology, and thus achieve the same flight in the same amount of time with a decreased consumption of Deuterium. For example, a Small Cargo ship would consume less Deuterium when travelling at 90% maximum speed after obtaining a level 10 Combustion Drive when compared to that of the same Small Cargo ship, on the same flight, travelling at 100% maximum speed using a level 8 Combustion Drive instead (200% - (200% * 0.1) = 180%, level 8 combustion drive).

Second, when a type of ship has had its speed limited by the inclusion of slower ships of a different type in the same fleet, the ships not flying at their normal speed will consume less fuel due to the increase in fuel efficiency from the appropiate improved drive technologies. For example, using Light Fighters in a fleet with a Death Star will automically decrease the speed of the Light Fighters, and thus the Light Fighters will benefit from a decreased fuel consumption with every advancement to the Combustion Drive technology.

After upgrading to level 5 of the Impulse Drive, the base speed of Small Cargo ships double and they henceforth proceed to use the Impulse Drive instead of the Combustion Drive when calculating speed and fuel efficiency.

DescriptionEdit

The Combustion Drive is the oldest of technologies, but is still in use. With the Combustion Drive, exhaust is formed from propellants carried within the ship prior to use. In a closed chamber, the pressures are equal in each direction and no acceleration occurs. If an opening is provided at the bottom of the chamber then the pressure is no longer opposed on that side. The remaining pressure gives a resultant thrust in the side opposite the opening, which propels the ship forward by expelling the exhaust rearwards at extreme high speed.

With each level of the Combustion Drive developed, the speed of small and large cargo ships, light fighters, recyclers, and espionage probes are increased by 10%.
