Engine is a Navigation item in Raft.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Engine is acquired through the Blueprint: Engine found on the Vasagatan. After researching the blueprint, players may build and place an engine in order to sail against the wind. Used in combination with the Steering Wheel, the play gets full control of which direction they wish to sail.

Uses[edit | edit source]

Powers your raft. Allows you to sail at speed in one of two directions, forward and backwards. Combined with a Steering Wheel the Engine allows the player to sail in any direction they desire, regardless of wind direction. One Engine can push a raft of up to 100 Foundations. For each 100 Foundations, another Engine most be built and run simultaneously.

The Engine runs on Planks or Biofuel. While using Planks, the Engine will burn through a full tank of 17 planks in a little over 10 minutes (612 seconds). Biofuel will last longer than planks, but also requires Honey making it a much harder fuel to obtain.

If the Engine is unable to push the Raft, whether it's anchored or overburdened, it will slow down almost to a stop indicating something is wrong. No fuel is used during this time, despite the Engine being on.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Engine has a capacity valued at 50, while one Biofuel fills a value of 60. As such, pouring Biofuel directly into the Engine's tanks will waste 10 units of fuel. To prevent this, the player must use a Biofuel Tank.

Added to the game in Patch 10.00.
