I have a simple question about hull points anyways:
I recently skilled full points into Structural Integrity, giving my Excelsior a total of aroung 50.7xx points of hullstrength. Now however I recently saw comparable T5 ships, Assault Cruisers, other Excelsiors who got 52.xxx or even 53.xxx points into hull. How can one achieve that? Is there any other skill which has an impact on the number of hullpoints?
I just finished running a series of internal tests on both Specialization skills and confirmed that they are fully-functional.
The fact that you are not seeing a display difference on the Status page for your ship stats, is because these skills do not modify your ship's critical hit stats. Instead, they modify your equipped weapons' critical hit stats.
Getting these stats displayed correctly is on our list of UI elements to get fixed, but will not happen over the short term.
As it stands right now, since this information is not readily available to all players as it should be, I'll happily relay the information that you should be able to see as related to these skills.
Both Energy Weapon Specialization and Projectile Weapon Specialization scale the same, as follows:
