Hey BC Comunity, i was just wondering if some of the excleent category of modders out there could make a mod of the new shielding we see on the refit enterprise E, i mean, not the common bubble that surrounds the ship, i mean the ones that are like, covering all the ship as if they were the hull itself, not that big ol bubble :D, and also if some1 could make those new Photons, i think they are really cool and i just love their no circular shape. well i hope i can see these mods soon Take care and gl 2 all

PS: OHHH also, if some1 could make the sounds of the shilds impact that are on nemesis, i love thos sounds :D they :rock: ok thats all, bye bye

I agree with you. Thats how shields are suppose to be. If somebody it that would be really great.

I'm not sure the game mechanics would allow for that.

The only way to dispense with the shield bubble is to make it very weak, so it dissapears as soon as a weapon hits it. You have to have the system on the ship or it won't work.

To compensate, you'd have to have a new hull system that acts as a virtual shield, it would need a bit of research to get it balanced correctly. I'm not sure that you could get the visible impact effect like in Nemesis though.

I don't know that there is a specific sound for shield impacts. I think its just a generic explosion sound used throughout the game.

yeah, the normal shields are rubbish, most shot that hit the shields would have missed the ship, but hit the bubble

I'm afraid thats a legacy from the TNG shows, when the ships obviously used shield bubbles.

As I said the mechanics of the shields are hard coded into the game (AFAIK).

You have to have a shield system on a ship, which in turn will automatically give it a shield bubble.

The only way to get around this would be to do as I suggested before. Its a big job.

i imagine the damage aspect would not be hard, you could use something similer to ablative hull armour, as for the visuals, could'nt you just use it as a damage texture
