A Booster Track can be placed as a section of Minecart Track to automatically boost the speed of a Minecart that rides over it. The direction of the boost is indicated by the animated red arrow it displays, which can be toggled using a Hammer or Wire. The Booster Track is purchased from the Mechanic for 50. Each booster will increase speed by 20mph, regardless of minecart variant.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If a Minecart rolls over a Booster Track while traveling in the direction opposite that of the Booster Track's setting, the Booster Track acts as a braking mechanism and slows the Minecart's movement, possibly reversing direction.
  • When a Booster Track is not connected to Minecart Tracks on both sides, its direction cannot be changed.
  • Three boosters in a row will accelerate to the top speed for the Desktop versiondefault minecart, at 51mph. Three boosters and a short press of the movement button is sufficient for the Minecart at 66 mph, and five boosters (with one tap of a movement key) for the Mechanical Cart at 102 mph.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.3.0.3: Fixed Booster tracks not being able to be connected diagonally.
  • Desktop 1.2.4.1: Fixed bug where the Minecarts could go ultra-speed using boosters. Booster Tracks and Minecart Track intersections can no longer be triggered as rapidly.
