Could a spacecraft that uses a gravitational force engine cause time shifts as an unfortunate side effect?

By altering local gravitational fields to provide propulsion - would it cause timeshifts as a result?

So if it was near the ground people may loose time, and if seen in the air, the craft may seem to move at incredible speeds or make impossible right angle manoeuvres?

It could be normal movement and normal speeds - but because of the time shift generated - it will look speeded up.

    If it travelled for two weeks at lightspeed, 20 years would pass on earth. Therefore, if we could see it, it would be the other way around and would travel very slowly in our 20 years of looking at it eyes. I am no Einstein but just the way I translated it.

    It really depends on your density and acceleration. It might depend on mass but I don't think so.

    The additional density added by a dimensional engine can, probably in a blue moon, cause time shifting but it's really the acceleration that causes time shifting.

    You have to be very close to the speed of light to go over and shift time for yourself and craft.

    We really have no clue because such engine is still in the state of fantasy.

    A gravitational force engine makes no sense. Gravity is not an energy source or a form of propulsion. You just fall until you hit the surface of the body. Only matter and energy can make a gravitational field. You can't use a body's gravity to move itself.

      No, you just use a small amount of energy to separate the gravitational component of matter and direct it in the one direction you want - like a thrust jet, only in reverse.

    totally non existent technology and even in theory it would take more power to run than humans have ever created in total

    In your fiction, you make have it do whatever you want, it's your story.

    Depends on how close to the speed of light . Time dialation would happen .
