For me, my ships typically have 5-8 systems including the engines. That means each of my ships can take a pretty good beating before it's totally useless. My larger ships can have upwards of 9 systems and shields, making them exceedingly tough, but for all that, they move like molasses.
My point is, there is already a system for tracking damage, so why complicate matters with an HP system? How would you calculate the HP for each ship? Would each ship have a beginning HP and then each system has an HP value attached to it? The system for damage tracking is already in place, so why change something that works?
