Ground my way up to the 19,500 gold engine from the basic starter only to find it moves at the same glacial pace across the map. I can find no engine upgrades and it seems the only way to increase the engine speed is to cheat with CheatEngine as suggested here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/596970/discussions/0/1778261844035482001/?l=english&ctp=1


I'd like to finish this game (the artwork is superb and the story and writing pretty enjoyable so far), but spending 10's of minutes traversing from one side of a map to another let alone then having to rinse and repeat in a separate realm to reach my destination, is just too much real time. Please consider boosting the engine's top speeds - perhaps there could be some sort of long acceleration curve and reduced manoeuvrability to ensure it takes a while to get "up to steam" if there's a concern about unbalancing the game.


Either way, the shiny gold engine should have a top speed of at least 3x, please consider making it so.

I agree that it can take way too long to travel from place to place after initial exploration. I got to a point where I was ready to retire, but wrapping up the last few loose ends took actual days. I'd like something similar to 'take 12' from D&D. Instant travel to a port with the appropriate fuel/supplies deducted and some random hull damage and terror. There's still plenty of reasons to take the long way, but sometimes you just want to finish a quest before bedtime.

The best engine is Cheat Engine. It is very easy to set up and use and the speedhack functionality will save your hours of boredom.

What if we could spend Unseasoned Hours to travel faster, since that's already in the lore?
