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.

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.
Posseidonia, Jamestown, New Amsterdam
Ship's Engineer offers four options:
- 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
- Close the conversation interface
Choosing retrofit the ship's hull
option will open retrofitting interface.
Retrofitting interface contains three buttons:
- retrofits the ship with selected retrofit item (price depends on retrofit quality)
- pull out the selected retrofit, keeping it along with the stats (100,000,000 Silver Coins)
- 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.
(green) - 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 Silver Coins
(purple) - 2,000,0000 to 4,000,000 Silver Coins
(orange) - 20,000,000 Silver Coins (*with ver 0.137 Epic of Jiawu some now cost 10,000,000)
(red) - 50,000,000 Silver Coins (*with ver 0.137 Epic of Jiawu some now cost 20,000,000)
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.
