Shield generators consume power to project a "bubble" of extra durability around your ship. As long as it has durability remaining, the ship is immune to weapons fire although there are weapons with a chance to penetrate it per shot. Physical collisions ignore the shield.
Shields start at Naonite tier, and gain 1.5x hp for each following material tier. Ogonite does not support shield generators.
Shield Generator Stats by Material[edit | edit source]
|Material||Cost ($)||Hull (hp)||Shield (hp)||Mass (t)||Shield/Mass (hp/t)||Energy Consumption (MW)||Shield/Energy Consumption (hp/W)|
This block has 4/3rds the mass and 1/8th the durability of a normal block, but provides 17.5 times more shield HP than a hull block provides in hull HP.
