I am trying to create a torpedo-like weapon that only deals damage to the shields of a ship or station, not the hull. This is meant to be a Tachyon Pulse Launcher as seen in ST:9. Any ideas?

Well, the Steamrunners Engine disabling weapon (cant remember the name) targets only the engines so you may want to take a look at that.

I thought about that and I also thought about the shield disruptor on the Nebula, but neither do what I want. As you know the ship has the maxHealth = XXXX line for it's health. This is XXXX Hitpoints for shields, and XXXX Hitpoints for the hull, I want a weapon that will do XXX damage to the shields, so that it has to be used multiple times to get a ships shields down.

Hello: The weapon you are looking for is already ingame, but it is unused. Its the Shield Removing Torpedo: bsrphot.odf & bsrphotono.odf , it has the Borg sprite and you must add the damage base, but it will not damage anything except the shields, its very useful. I hope this is wha you are looking for.

It WORKS!!! You just have to add in the damage values in the ordinance file and you are good to go.
