The Shipyard allows you to make fully customisable ships, chosing what armour, hull and weapons the have. Making ships requires resources, generaly more resources for more advanced equipment. The limit of weight on your ships is determined by what hull you are using.

The dock must be placed on water, and costs 1,200 oil, 2,400 metal, 3,000 energy and 400 zynthonite to build and cannot be upgraded but can be fortified.
