Every other upgrade gives a bigger benefit.
1 storage = 50% more carrying capacity.
1 reactor = move two more spaces if used to move
1 drill= 100% more drills per action.
1 thruster = 33% more movement.
So shouldn't thrusters give you two more moves instead of 1?

Unless I'm mistaken, 1 thruster(rocket) gives you 50% more movement. It also is "cheaper" costing only 1 tile vs. 2.

Also don't forget to consider the fact that it saves you an entire action when going from the portal to the refinery (on the advanced map). laugh

You generally move more than you drill. So you take advantage of it more than a drill bit, plus, diamond are more rare than niobium.
