I heard somewhere that this couldn't be done... If it could be, then add MaxShield = 500 AddShield = 50 to your ODF file of the ship under [Properties]. (MaxShield = the max shield power, AddShield = regeneration) That's the only thing you can do to add a shield, so if this doesn't work, then there's no way to get a shield on starfighters.
there is. I've downloaded maps with fighters that have shields.
As I said, that is the ONLY way to add shields to any unit in SWBF2. If that did not work, then nothing will.
Fiminopter, i HAVE seen sheilds on fighters. Check out Star Wars Battlefront 2, Star Wars Battlefront 2 Downloads - FileFront.com
Where? I can't see anything on the link page. Anyway, I heard that the way I showed was the only way to add shields to a unit.
it does work all you have to do is change the order like this:
AddShield = 50 MaxShield = 500
like that and it should work!!! at least it did for me!!!
