you need to add an alpha map to the icon. to explain it detailed: -make the icon with a screenie of your ship -open it on a graphic program, and cut it inside of a square (the square will fit on the shield display window, so sharp your eye) -resize the icon to 128x128 pixels, and add an alpha mask over the icon. the background must be black. -save it as .TGA in data\icons\ships you also need to call the icon from the ship's plugin, according to however you named it in the file. beware the typing, for Python is case-sensitive.
