Introduction and basic information

Ship retrofitting is the process of enhancing internal parts of the ship in order to improve it. Often called ship retrofits, are items that can be installed internally in ships in order to enhance them, to increase their stats. Ship retrofit items do not lose durability so they are permanent items that never have to be taken down and repaired.

Retrofit interface can be accessed in ships inventory (CTRL + Z) by clicking on the wrench icon.

There are four different ship parts that can be retrofitted, hence there are four different types of retrofit items:
- Ship brace - enhances hull, providing better protection
- Inboard gun platform - enhances cannons, provides better firepower
- Medical quarters - enhances sailors, providing better sailor protection from various threats
- Rudder - enhances maneuverability, providing better turning speed and dodge rate

Ship levels and retrofit support

Not all ships can be retrofitted. Every ship  has a different amount of parts that can be retrofitted. For example, some ships can only hold ship braces, while some can hold all four ship retrofit items. Only one item of each part type can be installed. For example, one ship cannot have two rudders, only one. Detailed list of ship levels and their retrofit support can be found in the table below.

How to retrofit

Ships can be retrofitted at Ship's Engineer. There are three Ship's Engineers available in game, located in Posseidonia, Jamestown and New Amsterdam. There is no difference between them. They offer the same options.

  Ship's Engineer
  Location: Posseidonia, Jamestown, New Amsterdam
















Ship's Engineer offers four options:
- Trade - Opens up shop interface, allowing the player to buy different kinds of retrofits
- Retrofit the ship's hull - Opens up retrofitting interface.
- Retrofit info - Shows some basic information about retrofitting
- Cancel - Close the conversation interface


Choosing retrofit the ship's hull option will open retrofitting interface.
Retrofitting interface contains three buttons:
- Equip - retrofits the ship with selected retrofit item (price depends on retrofit quality)
- Enhance - pull out the selected retrofit, keeping it along with the stats (100,000,000 Silver Coins)
- Split - destroy the selected retrofit (free)


Installing retrofit items

As explained above, retrofit items can be installed by selecting them in retrofit interface and clicking on equip button. This process cannot fail. Upon installation, retrofit will receive random amount of stats. Minimum bonuses are indicated on the retrofit before installation, while maximum ones are not strictly defined and are marked with an X.

Price of installation depends on the item quality.
- Ordinary (green) - 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 Silver Coins
- Superior (purple) - 2,000,0000 to 4,000,000 Silver Coins
- Perfect (orange) - 20,000,000 Silver Coins (*with ver 0.137 Epic of Jiawu some now cost 10,000,000)
- Precious (red) - 50,000,000 Silver Coins (*with ver 0.137 Epic of Jiawu some now cost 20,000,000)

Note: Installed retrofits that are bound to the character will also make the whole ship non-tradeable. In order to be able to trade the ship again, bound retrofits have to be removed, either by split option or enhance option.

Added some "where to get items"
changed format/ layout so that "-" is used as a bullet since bullets do not work in this forum.
