Introduction

Location of Remodel Button
In this case, it's greyed out because Kongou has not reached the required Level.

Remodeling is a game mechanic that allows you to upgrade a ship girl to improve her combat effectiveness. Ship girls can gain special abilities and extra equipment slots on remodel. It is generally a good idea to remodel a ship girl when you can.

Overview

  • A remodeled ship girl will have Kai (改) suffixed to her name.
    • Some ship girls have a second or third remodel with different suffixes. E.g. Ni (二), Zwei, Drei, Due, Mk. II, and Dva.
    • Some ship girls have additional suffixes to denote a speciality. E.g. A (甲), B (乙), C (丙), orD (丁).
      • "A" can mean several things depending on the ship girl. E.g. Shoukaku and Zuikaku's "A" means "Armoured".
      • "B" means anti-air speciality.
      • Currently only Kongou-class ships (Kongou and Hiei as of January 2021) have a "C" remodel and they are night battle focused.
      • "D" means ASW speciality.
  • It restores a ship girl to full HP and supply.
  • It sets her morale to 40.
  • All equipped equipment will be placed in storage.
  • All modernization of firepower Firepower, torpedo Torpedo Attack, anti-air Anti-Air, and armour Armor will be reset.
    • HP Health, ASW Anti-Submarine, and luck Luck modernization will be carried over.

Resource Requirements

All remodels cost varying amounts of ammunition Ammunition and steel Steel. Some ship girls require additional Development Materials Development material, Instant Constructions Instant construction, Gun Materials Item Icon New Model Gun Mount Improvement Material.png, Blueprints Blueprint, or Action Reports Action Report. Please see individual ship girl pages or refer to the remodel reference tables for the ammo and steel requirements.

Convertible Remodels

Several ship girls have the ability to freely convert between remodels. These alternative remodels have different specialities and abilities. You'll want to carefully consider which version you will use most often.

  • Converting between remodels will still reset all firepower, torpedo, anti-air and armour modernization.
  • The remodel will still cost ammo and steel. Some conversions will cost additional instant constructions, development materials or blueprints.

Stats On Remodeling

Ooi after.jpg

Upon remodeling, you will find that the stats do not match the minimums stated in the individual ship girl pages. This is because the minimums listed are the stats for that remodel at level 1. Since remodels do not occur at level 1, the actual minimums differ. Please see the stats page for more details.
