Hull Plating

Post by justinjah91 » Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:00 pm

I know the hull plating adds cosmetic effects to the belly of a ship, but does it actually do anything yet? Do shots that hit the belly actually do less damage? If so, how is this damage reduction calculated?

Some Beta 15.x era info, may have changed since:

Hull Platings prevent ship system damage from untargeted attacks (e.g., NOT missiles) against the underside of a ship. They don't scale with level, so equipping one is simply a toggle for this behavior.

Although the in-game tooltip claims to reduce hull damage, no such reduction actually occurs.
