Guaibee's Useful (and experimental) Fuel Engine Platform

Thanks! This is much more useful.

I'm probably better at fixing/modifying/improving engine designs than at actually coming up with new ones, as everything came from taking apart other people's engines and trying to piece them back together in a slightly different way (for better or for worse). Now with the linear exhaust-inline chains being the optimal setup, there are ways to manipulate the arrangements such that the exhaust enters and leaves any of a few turbos in the chain and still have them go through every inline. Sometimes it takes a long time to figure out, but it's satisfying to see them work Big Grin

It's always glad to see good use of the platform and the designs on top Big Grin I was very confused trying to build my first engine (at the last days of supercharger spam) and the changes didn't really help, and there came a day when I was very very annoyed by my own inability and decided to figure some stuff out (the Unified Engine Raft was a good place to start investigations). It was quite the learning experience, and hopefully they haven't gone to waste.
