WHY GEORGE! WHYYYY!
I dont want to change my playstyle!
Fortunately, that's pretty easily counteracted by a longzhu sphere as soon as those become common.

I know, but, still! Why wouldnt George give a 20% armour reduction to the Sapphire for being so delicate!

The sapphire does have an armour reduction; it only supports 6 ton segments. Compared to the other vanilla ships, that at least a 50% reduction.

The intent is for the player to use the repairer and additional segments in lieu of a shield. This makes fighting enemies that severely outpower you virtually impossible due to the low speed of the ship, but the intention is solid.

Thanks!

The speed is low for a playership without an engine. With an engine, it's probably much more usable, but I've yet to test this.

Nah mate its the best playership out there try it. It has the viciousness of the Wolfen and the upgradability of the Sapphire. It has more cargo space too.
