General Crafting Information

Each captain can get a crafting level from 1 to 50 and gain XP for crafting materials and ships. Some blueprints get available if you reach a certain crafting level, others well be rewarded randomly when crafting/breaking up ships.

To start crafting you need to be in any port with an outpost in it.

Building ships/materials will cost labor hours and each day you will get a certain number of labour hours which can be stored to a limit. You can store more labour hours if you have a higher crafting level.

You will also need different materials for building, to get a full list of materials needed to build and a proposed build order for a ship, take a look at Ship Crafting Helper.
