Hi, so i'm doing stuff with my old game and was wondering if anyone could supply me with codes making a box/cube use thrusters for movement??

ALSO, this is for DBP

One way you could do it is get the forward vector (the direction) of a box/cube and multiply that by the speed you want to accelerate, then add this to the current position of the object. You can also use this method to simulate inertia.

Here's a little demo I made quick that shows this, its untested as DBP isnt installed at the moment



EDIT: Fixed some errors

I wouldn't use a dymamic body for this. I'd use a kinematic or static object and move it manually. It will still collide with physics bodies but you get to control it. Momentum and velocity would be easy to handle for a spaceship - gravity wouldn't be a factor.
