Summary

The Fusion Drive Engine (FDE) is a 3x2 defense room obtained when the player buys the Fashionably Late (Supporter Pack). The FDE can also be obtained if the player pledged A$ 32 AUD or more at the Pixel Starships Kickstarter found here. The FDE is basically a level 6 Engine, functioning exactly the same in combat.

Usage

In Combat

The Fusion Drive Engine is essentially just a level 6 Engine and should be treated as such. When the FDE is paired with two max level Engines, it brings the player's dodge chance to 64%. The already present 64% dodge chance makes achieving a 100% dodge chance much easier due to the amount of Engine stat needed to reach 100% dodge chance being significantly lower.

When To Use

The Fusion Drive Engine can be a great Engine substitute for players under level 5 due to ship level requirements that prevent the player from getting a second Engine or a level 6 Engine. After level 6, the FDE usually sees little use. Normal Engines surpass the effectiveness of the FDE at level 7 and running two Engines and one FDE requires a lot of power.

AI

Since the Fusion Drive Engine only serves a purpose when the player is being attacked with Missile weaponry, an AI command that will depower the FDE when the threat of Missiles is null can save a lot of power. The below AI command will depower the FDE if the enemy has no active Missile Launcher/Multi Missile Launcher.


Enemy Missile Room HP > 0% -> Increase Power By 1
None -> Set Zero Power

Additionally, the below AI Command adds on to the above one with a Craft trigger. The Craft trigger is used to protect against Corsair Craft and Firehawk Craft, but it will waste power if the enemy is using a different type of Craft. Thus, it should be used at the player's discretion.


Enemy Has Active Craft -> Increase Power By 1
Enemy Missile Room HP > 0% -> Increase Power By 1
None -> Set Zero Power

Crew Interactions

The Fusion Drive Engine is buffed with the Engine EngineTrainingIcon stat on crew. The formula applied when the FDE is buffed can be found here.

Trivia

  • The Fusion Drive Engine is called the Warp Drive in the Kickstarter and on the official website.
  • The Fusion Drive Engine uses the Engine's destroyed sprite.
