Both of these mods would add a lot to the game and expand the amount of ships and rovers that could be added to mod.io.
Thank you for your feedback! We will consider it.
what kind of shields did you have in mind?
Simple bubbles can be used that take power draw instead of durably a good example is the more damage the shield takes the more power it draws until it needs to shut down ans stop working intill it is able to be powered up
It's simple to add a shield in this game you just need a block or something like a generator that generates the shield it's simple to make one
The problem is not feasibility, the problem is popular support. keen said that people were pretty evenly split on the issue of shields. some were for and more were against. that is the reason.
Shield in an of themselves are a good idea the problem with them is the low damage overall of SE weapons. Even without shields two relatively small ships will already slug it our for quite some time until one or most likely neither is completely destroyed.
That being said, I do support shields but maybe more akin to Star Wars deflectors where the shield is is more there to try and ricochet the incoming fire but a direct hit will still punch thorough. Would introduce an interesting new dimension for ship building if you had to consider something like that
