The hydrokinetic engine converts the energy of falling water into shaft power. Note that this machine can only rotate counterclockwise, and therefore the waterfall must be positioned accordingly. Additionally, adjacent blocks can objstruct the paddles from rotating, Finally this engine's power output is dependent on how far the water is falling. A 3-block fall will produce minimal power, but a 64+ block fall can produce 16384 Nm at 32 rad/s, the highest torque of any engine, totalling 524.288kW. These engines can also be chained, in direction of output, adding their torques together. The hydrokinetic engine requires lubricant to run.
When these engines are chained together and a lubricant hose is connected to the first one in the line, the lubricant will flow through to the rest of the engines. The lubricant use is very low, using only 1 mB of lubricant every 4 seconds, making this a very easy to maintain engine.
