Ship Parts

Jump to: navigation, search

When you design and build ships in the Ship designer, you can equip these ships with various parts. More parts become available as you research and progress through the Technology tree. There are two general types of parts that can be added to ships: cosmetic and equipment. Cosmetic parts allow the designer to make virtually any appearance of ship they desire, however, these cosmetic parts have no effect on the performance of the ship whatsoever; they are purely aesthetic. Equipment parts, on the other hand, determine the performance of the ship, for example, its speed, type of weapons, special abilities, range, and so forth. In the main menu, if you click the designer tab at the upper left of the screen, you will see a default ship displayed with this ship's details on the right and a menu listing ships that can currently be built on the left. You can click on any ship in this list and then click the "Use Design" button at the bottom of the list to modify that particular ship; or you can start by clicking "New Design" to start crafting a ship from scratch. In either case the menu on the left will change. At the top you will see buttons for "Design Mode" and for "Equip". Design mode indicates that only custom parts are available; Equip Mode shows functional parts that can be chosen to change the performance of you ship. If the equip mode is chosen the second row from the top of the left menu will display a serious of five buttons: Engines, Weapons, Defenses, Modules, and Support. As each button is clicked a list of available parts will be displayed that depends on what technologies you have researched.

In the following a detailed description of each type of Equip Mode part is listed, with an indication of where they are found in the Equip Mode Menu. NOTE: the values that you actually encounter in-game may differ significantly from those found in this table, as this table is the raw values and DO NOT include miniaturizations, cost reductions, or other general modifications that one may obtain in-game.

Engines

Engines can be used for interstellar travel or to increase tactical speed in battles. Special Augments are also available, however, they require rare resources.

Standard Weapons

Weapons come in three basic types: beam, missile, and kinetic.

Standard Defenses

There are three basic types of Defenses that can be placed on ships: Armor (Defend against Kinetic Weapons), Shields (Defend against Beam Weapons), and Point Defenses (Defend against Missile Weapons).

Modules

Modules come in many types, including: Life Support, Sensors, Weapon Assists, and Special Modules for Colony, Constructor, Transport, Cargo, or other purposes.

Life Support

Life Support components are used to extend the range a ship can be from a planet or starbase. These modules are good for all ship types, although colony ships, constructors, and scouts will benefit most from the added range. Upgrades are found in the Engineering tech tree beginning on the Interstellar Travel branch. After clicking on a ship/fleet you will see a dashed line displaying the maximum range of this unit. By holding down the Control key, a tool tip will display showing the distance the tile under the mouse cursor is from the currently selected unit.
