Controls - Thrust
There can be three engines on a vessel.
Mains, pushing forward:
Braking, pushing back:
And hover, pushing up:
Main engines are controlled by the light blue numpad + button.
Braking engines are controled by the pink numpad - button.
Hover engines are controlled by the yellow numpad ins button.
Pushing any of these buttons would put the corresponding engine at full power.
To fine tune the power, use the same keys while holding Ctrl key.
Ctrl+braking reduces main thrust and vice versa.
Ctrl+numpad del(orange) reduces hover thrust.
For quick stop of all engines use the violet numpad * button.
For a quick stop of hover engines press the orange numpad del button.
Num Lock should be off for any of these to work.
