Ship booster is a type of ship component. It provides brief bursts of high speed. Good boosters are pitifully easy to come by. Level 2 boosters and level 4 that drop in space are very common and tend to be superior to what a crafter can produce in terms of recharge rate and burn time. Crafted boosters exceed in top speed and acceleration.

Stats and MeaningsEdit

  • Level

Information telling you if you are certed to use the booster. Also, like caps, looted odd boosters tend to be what I call "Buzz Lightyear Tech". Use them to roll for KSE discs and then delete them. The most popular booster is level 2 and 4 looted boosters and the Mark 1 (level 1), Mark 2 (level 3) and Mark 3 (level 5) boosters. Also, at this time POB boosters are not recommended for use because they take the ship to zero speed when they are depleted (very bad when you're trying to run from a trio of high speed Firesprays).

  • Armor

Not much and it doesn't matter much.

  • Hitpoints

Get damaged when the piece is damaged, the booster will be disabled if its damaged in combat and the hitpoints are gone.

  • Reactor Drain
Lower is better, and it's never that high.
  • Mass

If you're really cramped on mass, go for the Mark 1 booster @ around 1kmass.

  • Booster Energy

Is depleted by firing the booster at the rate of the "Energy Consumption". When it gets to zero, your booster shuts off and you return to your engine speed.

  • Booster Recharge Rate

After the booster is turned off, it begins to recharge its energy by this amount/sec.

  • Energy Con. Rate

How fast the boosters burn its energy in energy/sec.

  • Acceleration

Self explanatory, but hard to quantify.

  • Top Booster Speed

Self Explanatory. The booster speed is also modified by your chassis, just like your engine speed.

  • Buying Tips

Unlike other pieces of space loot, finding a decent booster isn't hard. If you haven't looted a level 2 or level 4 booster by the time you've outgrown your prototype booster, then go to the closest bazaar and Ship Component: Booster, sort by price by lowest to highest. You'll find an abundance of level 2 boosters that will be sufficient for just about any situation except hard core pvp. The interesting thing about level 2 and level 4 boosters is that they are all uniformly decent with speeds in the mid 20's, burn times of around 10, recharges above 40. If you fly an interceptor where every last bit of mass is precious, you can get a 1k mass mark 1 crafted booster with a burn time around 10, speed in the lower 30's, and 20ish recharge. Burn time is simply booster energy/consumption, ie energy of 1000, consumption of 100 = burn time of 10.
