Basic Aircraft Building

Aircraft require a few things for the most basic of operation: Power, Thrust, Fuel, Lift and Control. The most basic aircraft consists of an airvent (set to depressurize) to provide the oxygen to a jet engine. There is also some form of power generator in order for the jet engine and airvent to work.

The following is a list of components that can be used for aircraft.

Power can be sourced from a set of different components: Batteries, Engines and Reactors.


Batteries are usually for kickstarting engines or for aircraft designed to be disposable in a very short amount of time. They usually have decent range and output, but the recharging can take an ungodly amount of time, even with the best possible power grids. This is due to them being limited to a maximum input. 1MW=1000kW.

Hydrogen Engines

Hydrogen engines are the main power source for most aircraft, due to their ability to give incredible ranges at the cost of the free stuff all around you (water gives ice, which gives hydrogen in an o2h2 generator). They come in a series of sizes and powers. Their fill rate is dependent on the quantity of hydrogen produced either by a generator or the hydrogen storage tanks. 1KL=1000L

The absolute pinnacle of power, producing great and constant power in a small size for the cost of a little uranium. Used by wealthy factions due to the time required to obtain large quantities of uranium.

Aircraft can take different amounts of thrust depending on their class (See Aircraft Classification and Weapon points) All thrusters take oxygen as their fuel, provided by intakes. Propellers are purely power-fed. The thrusts are rounded to the nearest whole ton

Fuel comes under two categories: for power generation and for thrust. Power generation uses Hydrogen, thrust uses oxygen. Oxygen tanks are capable of being used, but are generally obsolete due to that produced by the airvents. Hydrogen is stored in wing-blocks, internal fuel tanks and drop tanks.

Lift is provided by wings. These can come from the mods by Consty, Takeshi and Randa. The more wing, the more lift and the higher the maneuverability of your aircraft.

Control is provided by a Gyro's and Control surfaces. Due to the limit in Gyro's, these are most used for stability. There are control surfaces for all types of control surfaces, including Canards. Alternatively you can use customs ones with a script (sourced from elsewhere).
