This past weekend I upgraded everything on one vessel from Mk XII to Mk XIII. I was expecting a bump in ship structural points and shield facing points, but didn't see anything happen. Where's the beef? All the gear shows Mk XIII. Did I miss something or maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention and it did get bumped slightly? Anyone else have a similar experience?

A liot of items are bugged.

Wait 6-12 weeks before using the crafting system.

It is a peculiar phenomenon that we can imagine events that defy the laws of the universe.

You are being too generous with your estimate.

I can't think of any upgrades that would boost your structural/hull hitpoints. That will happen with an upgrade to T5U (hitpoints will scale as you level from 50-60). Shield hitpoints should increase with the mark of your shields item, but some are buggy at the moment. I expect those particular Mk XIII need their data tweaked and should (hopefully) be 'grandfathered in' once fixed.

Maybe the fleet neutronium (+Hull) would get a boost to HP?

Yeah, there are a few things that add to hull HP.

Some deflector dishes, for instance.

As for crafting, I'm avoiding playing with anything I'm massively attached to atm.

Checking out the system, upgrading items I've crafted myself using the free boosts, that sort of thing.

As time goes by, and especially a little while after DR launches, we'll get a better sense of what we can do with the system.

But, for now, I'd counsel dabbling in the system, rather than going for it full throttle.

Some deflectors add to hull hit points plus as someone said the mine consoles

A Positron deflector array can do it. Deflector arrays with the [SIF] mod will also increase the ship's structural integrity. Well, they actually boost your captain's Structural Integrity skill which in turn increases your ship's hit points.

I don't plan on upgrading any of my equipment until I can see clear and marked improvement over my current equipment (SOLID NUMBERS)

I've been reading the horror stories on the forums about players spending 5-10 million in EC and 250-400k in Dilithium upgrading their gear and coming out with nothing to show for it.
