Moonshine is a helm tool used to temporarily increase the thrust of a ship's engines and reducing longitudinal drag, thus increasing the functional maximum speed and forward/backward acceleration. Highly increased angular drag prevents the ship from turning and can be used to great effect in order to stabilize the ship during rams, bumps or over-turns, during mine and Minotaur hits.
While activating Moonshine, the engines will take a moderate amount of damage per second, slightly higher than the best repair tool - the Rubber Mallet can provide. Therefore, the operational time of Moonshine is limited and unsustainable for constant use, requiring the player to use it in bursts.
Moonshine is very similar to Kerosene but provides additionally increased acceleration, higher top speed and stronger stabilization at the cost of more engine damage.
Like all helm tools it is only useful for the player flying the ship and has no effect if equipped by other crew members.
Common Usage Edit
Moonshine is commonly found on ships with easy to maintain engines like Pyramidion and Galleon and sometimes Goldfish. Its high angular drag makes it perfect for ramming by preventing turns and keeping guns in arc. All ships have a different longitudinal drag coefficient, so gain in maximum speed from its reduction is differents.
