Ships are hulls that have been fully outfitted with weapons and armor, then assembled in the shipyard. Ships can exit a player's outpost and enter the Map. Once on the map, ships can battle each other, gather resources, and explore to help make more of the map visible. Ships are composed of a base hull and any armors or weapons attached. A ship's stats help determine how well it will perform in battle, how many resources it can carry, and how much weight it will contribute to the fleet.
