Item Engineering is an item modification system that can be found on the Engineering tab of a friendly planet (including Earth).

Engineering uses Black Dollars (BDs) only, and does not use Credits. The reason for this is that we want players to decide the market value of Credits. If Whalesong Games were to set credit prices for Engineering, we would effectively be putting limits on the player-run market, and we do not want to do that. Players are always selling BDs for Credits in Market chat.



There are some restrictions to engineering:
1) Uncommon and higher quality items can be engineered.
2) Common items, 1% items, stolen items, and Engines cannot be engineered.
3) Ultimate items can be ranked up or down, but cannot be Augmented.
4) Items that have EP values greater than 1 cannot be ranked down to 0 EP
Deconstruction:
You can deconstruct any Uncommon or higher item for Reward Points (RPs). An item is worth 0.01 Reward Points for every $2,000 Credit Value (i.e. 200,000 credits of value = 1 RP). Reward Points are a type of currency you can use to claim items. Type :reward inside the game to learn more about the service.
Augmentation:
You can increase an item's rarity, such as turning an Uncommon [Storage III] into a Rare [Storage III].

You can use Augmentation to upgrade an 1-EP item to 0 EP.
Rank Up / Down:
You can increase or decrease an item's rank, such as turning a [Storage III] into a [Storage IV] or a [Storage II].
Ship Class Up / Down:
You can raise or lower a Computer or Special Item's required ship class, such as turning an Executioner-Class Computer into a Devastator-Class Computer.

The Planet you're using must be able to support the new ship class; for example, it would require a Gaia III planet to make an Executioner-Class Computer into a Devastator-Class Computer.

Some ship clases can share computer and specials:
* Invader Wyrd ships can use Computers and Specials designed for Flagships.
* Wyrd Assassin ships can use Computers and Specials designed for Flayers.
* Wyrd Reaper ships can use Computers and Specials designed for Executioners.
* Wyrd Terminus ships can use Computers and Specials designed for Annihilators.
Repair Item Durability:
You can repair an item for 10% Durability at a time.
