shimmy00 Posted January 22, 2022 Share Posted January 22, 2022 Hi. This is something I've wondered about for a bit, and that's that I'm not sure how or even if one can use the action groups in the way I'd like to. I have a craft where that there are proper engines facing forward and back that I'd like to use in an "RCS"-like fashion in order to dock it with another. I noticed that there is an action group for "Translate F/B" and you can put there the Thrust Limiter on an engine, and I thought this would work. So I did. I set the action to be set (not gradually increase) the throttle to 100%. However, it seems that it doesn't actually work that way in the game. Once the craft has been lofted and the engines engaged, they burn continuously because apparently before you hit the forward/back controls they start out at 50%. Hitting the F/B makes them go to 100% as I'd expect, but the idle state is not 0% as would be needed, but 50%. Can what I'm trying to do even be done? If so, how? If not, what would one use that action group for? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
