Maintenance Overhaul

Covers dry docking fees, cleaning and replating of damaged hull sections, shield and scoop system de-ionization, systems tune-up, repainting and detailed valeting.

When the shipyard-folk start systematically approaching you with an offer to do a big overhaul, do not readily shrug off their offers thinking it's a scam. These people usually know what they're talking about, and when they suggest an overhaul, it's usually a sign they spotted something's about to break. Maybe your last scrape-ins during those manual dockings are beginning to show? Got into any hairballs recently?

Sure, your shields take care of these things, that's why you paid so much for them, but nonetheless, these punishments add up, and one day, in mid-flight, things might go bad without prior warning. Witchjumping into Thargoid territory, fuel-leaks, your scanner going haywire... Space is an unforgiving place, and face it, life is already perilous enough without having to worry about failing equipment. So take good care of your ship. It's the only thing separating you from the deep vacuum. Also, when you go shopping for a new ship, it might be a good idea to fork out for a maintenance-session before swapping in your old one. Recently-serviced ships have a significantly better trade-in value than ships in poor shape.

The Large HUD & Extra-Large HUD each include a 'Hull bar' which gives an indication of the need for maintenance (These come bundled in Norby's HUDSelector .oxz). The VimanaHUD throws up a Maintenance Warning when the time is ripe - and the add-on ship module for it gives detailed further information. [1]
