Ship Name and Log
The ship name and log screen allows you to rename a ship any name you wish and
write yourself a short log message about this ship that only you will be able
to see. Any enemy or friendly race that scans your ship will be able to see
your ship`s name, but not the message in the log. If a ship is captured the log
message will be deleted.
The screen also shows you many important statistics about the ship`s hull.
Even through the ship hull has a listed max speed of 90 the ship might have an
engine that is unable to propel a ship at this speed. If a ship has less
weapons than its rated maximum number it can always be refitted using an outfit pod at a later time to bring the ship up to its full weapons count. These numbers
listed are just the absolute hull maximums and not necessarily the current
configuration of the ship. The Data On Ship screen will give you current ship configuration details.
