Introduction

The FTL Drive and Shield Generator are integral parts to FTL13. They allow the ship to traverse space, and safely. Running them off of plasma and power, it's integral to get the supermatter going. Better hope some people know what they are doing.

FTL Drive

The FTL Drive is controlled by the Helms Officer in the bridge. The only thing controlled by you Engineers is the plasma and power to the drive. Power is connected when you get to the ship, but plasma must be connected by you. The plasma is in the two canisters directly left of the drive and gen. Wrench them onto the ports, and open the valve closest to the drive. You now have plasma running to the FTL drive! It's a good idea to ask the bridge crew to confirm that it is charging, even though the sprite is animated once plasma begins flowing.

Shield Generator

The Shield Generator is controlled by the Weapons Officer in the bridge. Again, the only thing controlled by you Engineers is the plasma and power. Setup is the same as the FTL Drive, but this valve is the closest one to the generator. Again, ask the bridge crew to confirm that it is charging, even though the sprite is animated.

Additions

The greatest of Engineers upgrades both the gen and drive. Is there a way to keep you from having to go switch out plasma canisters? Maybe it would be a good idea to provide backup power, or to disconnect them from the main power net? Is there a way to get more moles from the same volume? Keep in mind, the drive and gen charge in moles, not by volume.
