The Engine is a special support building that increases your chance to dodge missiles or projectile based weapons. The dodge rate stacks additive with a second engine making it an effective counter to all Missiles launched from Missile Launchers. This also makes it a direct counter to the Firehawk Drone.
When attacking you shouldn't worry too much about keeping the Engine well repaired and manned as many AIs are not set to target the Engine. If you see the enemy run anything projectile based (Missiles) you should immediately switch the engine on, otherwise keep it off. This makes this room the second only counter to Penetrator Missile spam aswell.
The Engine is a pretty big gamble to put on defense as the enemy can manually target it. Its three power and usually low armor priority makes it a big target. So unless you have the later mentioned AI, just don't put in the Engine unless you can defend it well. In the end it's up to you to decide whether the 8-46% dodge is worth this.
The Engine with a 46% Dodge Rate will take up six entire power bars. So, when you defend the right AI can allow you to be more aggressive and suffer less when a Reactor gets destroyed. Here we will run down the basic AI, to the incredibly complex AI. Here's average AI:
None -> Set Maximum Power
Here is an extra Missile Defense AI
None -> Set Minimum Power Enemy Missile Room HP > 0% -> Set Maximum Power
Here is an incredibly complex AI that protects against Firehawks aswell as Missiles.
None -> Set Minimum Power Enemy Craft Count > 0 -> Set Maximum Power Enemy Missile Room HP > 0% -> Set Maximum Power
Interactions With Crew
The Crew's Engine slot improves the Engine's dodge rate. To calculate you first must find the Engine's dodge rate by itself. Then add all the Engine stats of the crew in the room in percentage. Ignore the decimals if there are any and add them all together. So a level 10 Engine with 23% Dodge Rate and 2 Crew each with 15 Engine in the room would give you a Dodge Rate of 53%.
