From my experimenting yesterday, this seems to be the quickest way to get the three engines in one go with one engineer.

-Jump to one turning and hit it.
-Go AFK and immediately return (Yes, it's a bit cheap. But it's also quick.)
-Go hit the main engine from underneath.
-Jump down to the other turning and hit it.
-If you're doing multiple cycles, go AFK again and repeat the process.

Good for one cycle? Yes. Good for moonshine or kerosene? Meh.

Yeah I dunno about you but if the strat relies on AFK button, something is wrong.

I don't like using Go AFK to make things quicker. I was simply stating that that's the quickest means to do it. I wouldn't actually use that method, nor would I encourage it.

Anyone else getting random drops and rises regardless of what key you're pressing?

Seems to be when stationary the ballon'll behave either like it's burst and you plummet or like it's been helium'd.

Every other play session in practice mode I ran in the Mobula resulted in the ship power diving without any input. I did not take the thing out to a "real game" but I suspect there is a glitch in practice mode. I would write up a proper bug report and send it to the devs, but I was too tired last night from my paying job to do QA for GOIO.

To those who are complaining about the guard rail infront of the pilot station:

I don't know if this was intentional or not, but they act as iron sights to line up your firing arcs without any guess work.  They are useful for aiming your ship.  Incredibly useful.  You just have to rely on your crew to spot targets for you in between long range slaughter.

The ship is incredibly potent as an artillery platform, and I weep for those who attempt close range gat/flak fighting with it.

Well I weep for those who claim to weep for those who think that gatflak is workable, because it is.

This monster can get double gat on a target followed by double flak, while still keeping an engineer on the hull. That's a terrifying amount of power.

I am under the impression that the Mobula is the new Pyramidion.

In a way I see it as the new Junker. It's a bit of a jack of all trades. It can be a support ship, a brawler, a sniper... I'm really loving the potential for variety.

To me it's the new spire.
Bit of a glass cannon. Incredibly exploitable weakness. High firepower.

#MobulaNewGoldfish

Cause it has a heavy weapon on front, and tons of coverage with it's gun arc.
