(Inherits from bot part)

Used to provide thrust for bots operating on the surface, in air or in space. Regular jets will not opperate in water. For the aquatic version, see hydro jet.

Input/Output Description Data Type
>thrust Force that the jet will create decimal


For positive values of >thrust, a proportional force will be exerted along the central axis of the jet. Negative thust values will be ignored. Visually, jets will expell a cone of purple exhaust gasses, the size and intensity of which is dependent on the thrust (this will not damage any parts it touches).

The most common use for jets is to provide lift and forward thrust for flying bots. Typicallly, thrust values in the order of 100s are used for propulsion for small to medium bots, but exact thrust values and numbers of jets required are highly situational.

As a primary source of lift, in many applications hovers may be a more suitable choice.

Jets can also be used with lower thrust values to provide control over orientation and heading of bots.
