This is an alternate version of Royce's Atkinson engine, using sliders to make a vertical rather than rotary motion, allowing the two strokes to be of the same length.
Did I just accidentally a turbine?

Seems so! I was trying to make steam engine then saw a weird effect just like in this one happen, then suddenly it starts going around like a turbine, rather than up and down like a steam engine as I'd intended. I decided to see if I could capitalise on this weird effect and so the parallel linkage turbine was born.
Press Y to start the water cannons and flamethrowers, then T to get it moving with the rockets.
I came across a GIF of an engine that worked like this, and couldn't resist replicating it in besiege, with great success!
I actually managed to make a new engine that's not awful. Go me, I guess.
An improvement on my 2-cylinder opposed engine. It's a little slower due to the need to use suspension, however I think it's a lot more powerful, and looks a lot cooler.

Nice!

Neat variant to a standard cranks shaft, thats for sure!

Heyo! you still around somewhere mate?

Oh thats cool.

edit: nope, nevermind, doesn't work neither

I see what you were trying to do but, it doesn't work for me
not in normal as gravity off, the issue is the firing
isn't placed correctly but placing them a block down makes it work

Interesting, this is pretty nice

It's not really a turbine at all to be honest, and it looks like it has the same power of a 4 cilinder radial engine, actually I think its a 4 cilinder radial in another shape
but in a vehicle, if you place this sideways it could add some extra power to it, but it's not really useful when standing still

it covers up a lot of space too

I don't know, we need to experiment more on this

other than use for an engine, I have been thinking of designing something like this to no avail, now that I have it I don't know what I wanted to make
Haha bad luck me

I wanted something that I could "pin to the chassis" and it would be like a gyroscope, but fixed so it wouldn't move by the stupid physics of Besiege
sad that I forgot what I wanted to make :/

"Did I just accidentally a turbine?"

I read this in a British accent and it sounded hilarious!

this is pretty slick! i love it!

I might do that soon. its fun to see!

Cool, it also generates some great speed using just water

But it can't beat the piston engine hehehehe

Yeah, never thought to use it on this though.

Why don't you do a whole comparison of several different steam and cannon engines, turbines, and the normal wheel in a video? It'd be interesting to see how each compares.

Pretty slick! I may try to run this and a standard turbine together to see the power difference with the gear/torque meter ive been using. Have you seen that?

Cursedpython, it sounds to me like you've stuck it in the ground by accident. Try lifting it up first, then hitting play.
