Ships in HoD

The Heart of Darkness expansion featured an overhaul of the naval system with completely revised ship statistics and new mechanics.

The game features three classes of ships:

  • Transports are used to ferry troops from one landmass to another. They are very weak in combat.
  • Light Ships, sometimes called screens, are fast but lightly armed and armored. To offset this weakness they get some unique abilities. All light ships have an evasion chance which allows them to dodge incoming fire and once certain technology has been researched some light ships gain a powerful torpedo attack.
  • Heavy Ships, sometimes called capital ships or ships of the line, carry the heaviest guns and armor. Their power is balanced by high maintenance costs and vulnerability to torpedoes. Only capital ships count towards a nation's military score.

Most heavy ships can only be built at naval bases connected by land or straits to the nation's capitol. Monitors can be built anywhere which makes them useful for guarding your far flung colonies.

Base Statistics

  • Naval Base - the minimum naval base level required to build this ship in a state.
  • Build Time - time in days required to build the ship. Each level of naval base in the state decreases this by 10%.
  • NSP - the amount of naval supply points required to maintain the ship.
  • CP - the number of colonial points gained from building the ship.
  • CP RoI - this is the number of colonial points gained for each supply point used by the ship.
  • Hull - a divisor to the damage dealt to the ship.
  • Attack - the base damage of a ship's guns.
  • Evasion - the chance for a small ship to evade a large ship's attack.
  • Torpedo - the attack increase the ship gets when attacking heavy ships.

These statistics are improved by researching Navy Technology. The following sections will detail the statistics for ships after each tier of navy technology has been completed and all inventions in that tier have been discovered. The year provided is when the last tech in this tier becomes available for research.

Start of game

Most civilized nations will start the game with these technologies and their inventions completed, but some nations may have to discover them.

Ships in AHD

  • Combat Strength: A measure of the unit's combat ability. Equal to sqrt(Hull * Gun Power).
  • Yearly statistics assume all available naval technologies and inventions have been obtained.
