Probably my biggest concern with the build as it stands is the lack of a boost, or an ability to 'run hot'. It was my preferred method of travel in SS, despite the occasional explosion.

I'm hoping it's going to come when we can buy our first auxiliary slot item, or be unlocked with an engineer perhaps. The game mechanics would support it far better now, with the accurate heat gauge thing we have going on, and I'd certainly appreciate a dangerous boat of speed when terror's passing ninety or supplies standing empty.

Was there anything I missed in the sprints that hinted at a boost feature?

i'd say we should be able to doubletap any movement key for a quick burst like the strafing, at a cost of extra engine heat

Sunless Skies needs engine and speed control mechanics. Have a look at my design proposal for implementing it

This woul lead to a lot of missclick (misstaps?) I'd say. Just give it another whole key, it's not like the game uses too many as of now.

Chrchleater, who has a good heart and a terrible fate, is doing so as well. Strange sorts of pranks are to be directed here.
