Shield Field Generator

Keen,

Could you add a Shield Generator as in similar to how the space station safe zones works?

Idea of a working gen

Shield gen capacitor = Large Block Requiring heavy heavy power charged into its capacitor bank and is the main support for the Shield Field Generator. This power is not usable by ships main systems. (Thrusters, O2 Gens, etc.) nor block transferable.

Every shot/rocket absorbed by the Spherical Shield Generator would knock this power stored number down until it eventually is depleted and the shield gen fails exposing the ships armor.

Recharging of a downed shield should not be instant the capacitor should have to reach a certain power charged in number before it could re energize.

Sounds like the Energy Shield Mod or the Defense Shield mod on Steam Workshop. Am I close to what you were suggesting?

shield for ships .. which could be restored .. the battle on the ships is very fast .. week build. 5 minutes .. battles and it’s finished .. especially against the horde of pirates ..

Sounds a bit too sci-fi for Keen, and also would likely encourage just building blocks of shields, large reactors, and guns instead of actually well-designed ships. Why have an armored decoy or thickened armor around the vitals when you could just replace them with power generation and stick a shield on it?
