    Can anyone using Autoship/Autostructure explain what happens to the structure when the hull shape is changed, for example made longer or wider. Do the frames, bulkheads, stringers and drawings update to the new lines or does it all have to be drawn again?

    Also what about the nests, do those parts update or not?

    Thanks
    Steve

    Sorry to say, but only the hull will change. All inside components will need to be revised manually.

    That's unfortunate. Their website says

    "Automatic regeneration of affected parts after scantling and location changes or changes to the hull shape"
