Silly question, by default which direction does PHYSICS THRUSTER generate force based on icon?

According to official UE documentation, the thruster fires off in the negative X axis. But if in UE, the X axis is the red axis right? That just doesn’t seem right based on the icon when the component is added. So the force initially comes out the side unless rotated? Any help is appreciated as always, thank you.

So the force initially comes out the side unless rotated?

Pretty much, yes.

It’s negative X - treat Red like an exhaust. If the attached rocket is supposed to go UP the Z, we point thruster’s X towards -Z.


I, kind of, agree that it should be just pointing along -Z by default.

Thanks again Everynone, you are very patient and very wise.
