I think I finally 'get' inline turbo's.... somewhat

RE: I think I finally 'get' inline turbo's.... somewhat
Small addendum: If you're running an engine flat out the entire time you can afford to use minimal exhausts - that's not a particularily common scenario though, so more exhausts mean more efficiency at part-throttle. My own 5x3 1288 engine ends up with quite a few holes if I use minimal exhausts ( enough for more fuel storage than it needs ) but I've never installed it in anywhere where that would be sensible.

Poke my boat! mostly pre-2.0 learning & catalogue thread - Update: Heavy & light tanks 07/04/18 for 2.1. 6 ships made 2.0 aware. If it's not AotE I can't do it regularily - sea -> post processing -> eyestrain.

RE: I think I finally 'get' inline turbo's.... somewhat
Appreciate all the advice folks, truly. I'm just glad I built a semi-functional inline turbo engine lol.

I've done a lot of tweaking with injectors and there's just a certain point where it feels like you can't improve the performance anymore, and that it's a very easy 'level' to reach.

In-line turbos almost seem... busted. The sheer power of more then one fully 'gassed' turbo on a carb is just overwhelming... nothing else comes even vaguely close.

Indeed. Superchargers need a buff of some sort.

Your giant expensive powerful warship of doom can be destroyed by dropping an anvil on it. One day, I will finally have enough engines to actually make a ship without stopping to make more engines.
