Physics Thrusters are a special physics Actor you can place in the editor and then parent to a physically simulating object, making said object receive the force from the thruster. The thrust propels the Physics Thruster in its Negative X direction, or looking at it another way, the Positive X axis of the thruster is the "exhaust of a jet engine."

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
