    With the new definitions, I understand that:

    a) Forsaken technology, researched: -15% on weight for SY2
    b) Drac technology, blue print: no weight reduction for SY2
    c) Drac tech, researched : doesn't exist in the game
    d) Forsaken tech, blue print: 15% reduction, or no reduction??? (Mael5, poseidon, phalanx all fit in here)

    Please clarify

    Specials such as Speed Systems will not be affected. The screenshot is to merely display the Tech Designation. Shipyard 2 provides a reduction in Forsaken Weapons and Armor. Apologies for the confusion.
    Ok so if i understand it correctly then forsaken bp weapons wil benifit from weight reduction after the tech descriptor.
    But wil it allso affect the Blitz drone module ?

    Could we also get actual combat speed for hulls in the descriptor in the fleet view?

    does this deignation mean there will be more "forsaken" weapons or armors in the future? as of right now, the majority of any prize/loot/blueprint is "draconian".. somewhat making the designation pointless..

    Look in the Ultimate Shipyard, it is there (in Draconian weapons). It was a raid prize - 

    The original wasn't working for a while. But the original site is back and updated. 

    Ultimate Shipyard - http://bp.tel4u.gr/ (this is the original malware free Ultimate Shipyard link, it is back up and working. Don't use the mirror site, use this original site)

    SCHMEE'S Ship vs Ship Simulator - http://www.feralland.com/bp/

    That is all we currently have that I know of. I, and plenty of others, regularly use these to evaluate builds before we waste the time/resources to actually build them in the game.

    (Note: These are not maintained by Kixeye. These are created/maintained by BP enthusiasts. Because of this, there may be some hulls/specials/weapons/etc. that are not present in the Ultimate Shipyard or in Schmee's Ship vs Ship Simulator.)

    I see that speed system 2 is a forsaken tech. Is there an engine of drac tech? If so when will we see it implemented into BP?

    wow, if the depth charges get the 15% weight reduction I will be avery happy.  Now if you could please reduce the build times on them... (over 3 days for a single depth charge 3?  REALLY?)

    Not seeing the point of this ....Speed System II in the popup at start of this thread says 'Forsaken'....yet in shipyard it is listed as Draconian Tech.  All tech In Shipyard is already listed as Draconian or Forsaken ...What is really the point of this??  Is this feature gonna allow us to see what is what in the intel Lab...I hardly see the point of wasting time on this

    No it is not...go to your shipyard and put it on a ship....It is Draconian Tech...hence why it is in the list of draconian tech....If it was Forsaken it would be under Forsaken Tech in your shipyard....Please Kixeye pull the plug on this useless update....Time could be better spent fixing the 4 month old Drone Mod base defense glitch...

    Wasnt really hard to figure out, you can tell from adding in your shipyard or by looking in your intel lab.
