History

The Medium Antimatter Water-Fusion Thruster II or Medium Anti-Hydrogen-Fusion Thruster II was introduced in 0.4.9 to provide a more powerful version of the standard version. As Cosmoteer 0.14.2 introduced the Boost Thruster, the Large Antimatter Water-Fusion Thruster II's was rewritten with the new vanilla code.

Overview

By using a new nuzzle design the new thruster can run cooler or at the same temperature employ more thrust. As a result the thruster can be used in afterburner mode. In this mode more water is directed through the core creating more thrust.

Usage

Be default afterburner mode is turned off. When turned on afterburner can be used for 20-30 s (previously 1 minute) (given enough energy supply). Afterwards, the thruster will turn into cooldown mode. Cooldown mode lasts 20 seconds (previously 2 minutes) before the afterburner can be used again. Small time and power indicators in these modes allow a means of timed control. However, for some reason the indicators don't work in a timely matter as designed.

Timing has been reduced in order to be able to compete with the sustained boost of vanilla since 0.14.2+.
