Hi All,

Want to ask,

On the ships, this is what is see

Blue bar is shields, which decrease when being fired at. After the blue bar depletes, then? Which one is the HP bar? I see RED bar under the Blue bar, and below it is a GREEN bar, but coloured in 2 shades, one darker green one lighter green.

I don't seem to see any HP indication decrease. Or am I seeing it wrong?

Game is 1.9.5.0.

Ships have no HP bar. They blow up when all components are destroyed.

Hi, that's surprising.

Hmm, then is there any indicator of how many components are left and etc?

And what does the green bar stand for?

Just observe how ships graphics look when ship take damage, you will know how badly is damageed after some time.

And green bar, guessing, it's boarding power/progres.

Actually there is a shield hit point bar, but as far as structural damage, you indicator is how bad the ship looks. You can tell, because the ship will start to develop 'hull breaches' (IE black spots over the hull) which indicate components are being damaged.
