Ship equipment

From Sunless Sea Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Equipment is everything that's mounted on a ship that you can take off and replace with something more dangerous.

Types of equipment[edit | edit source]

Your ship can have different kinds of equipment for all purposes:

  • Weapons: to defend yourself against Monsters of the Unterzee - and the humans of the Unterzee too, for that matter. All forms of Deck and Forward equipment are weapons, and there are also some Aft mounted weapons.
  • Illumination: more powerful lamps light up the dark corners of the Neath and reveal what others would hide. This equipment gives bonuses to your Mirrors stat, helping your gunners take aim more quickly. However, powerful lights will also lower your Veils stat, helping enemies see you from further away. This equipment is mounted on the Bridge.
  • Engines: sailing the vast zee needs a proper engine. The larger and heavier your ship, the more Engine Power it needs to move at a decent clip - but the mightiest engines burn through Fuel much more quickly.
  • Miscellaneous: anything else goes into this category; from stat boosts to torpedo nets to hidden compartments for smuggling. This includes all Auxiliary equipment, and some Aft equipment.

Equipment Slots[edit | edit source]

You can't just strap an engine to your deck and expect to get anywhere. Each piece of equipment is designed to fit one specific place on your ship, and nowhere else. There's only room for once piece or equipment in each slot. All ships can have an Engine, a Deck gun, a Bridge lamp, and a piece of Auxiliary equipment. Only larger ships can mount Aft equipment and a Forward weapon.

When not fitted to a slot, most equipment is considered Cargo and takes up space in the Hold.

Sources[edit | edit source]

You can't find a shiny new engine just floating in the zee! Almost all equipment must be bought in the shops of London. A few specialized pieces can only be found abroad, and certain Officers may have dreams of creating one-of-a kind marvels...

WE ARE CLAY

Game note: This trio of Clay stokers will reduce crew requirements, but also crew capacity, and will slightly increase engine power. They are fitted to an Auxiliary slot. When they are not in use, they will stand, patiently, hands by their sides, flat grey eyes unreadable. One will say, sometimes: "I LIKE IT WHEN IT IS QUIET."
