The Last Starship – Propulsion Guide (Engines, Thrusters, FTL)


Propulsion is provided by three main pieces of equipment.

  • Primary propulsion is provided by one or more engines
  • Secondary propulsion (maneuvering) is provided by thrusters
  • FTL propulsion is provided by the FTL drive and is not recorded in the debug menu

Below are some metrics for each form of propulsion using a ship with the bare minimum equipment and weight to propel it.

As of Alpha 1A, the debug menu is no longer accessible. The only metrics available are velocity and evasion. Using the same ship as above, the following can be calculated:

  • Engine: 269 velocity 269% evasion
  • Thruster: 51 velocity

It’s worth noting that the evasion value does increase when making turns

I turned my love for games from a hobby into a job back in 2005, since then working on various gaming / entertainment websites. But in 2016 I finally created my first website about video games – Gameplay Tips. And exactly 4 years later, Game Cheat Codes was created – my second website dedicated to legal game cheats. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices.
