Hi I have a question about the shield recharge rate.If I want to make the shields recharge faster would I make it, say I make a ships shields 2000 would i make the recharge rate 400 to make it recharge fast or make the shield recharge rate 14 as if it were 14 seconds til the shields are recharged to the max? Can someone help me?

is the amount of shielding that is recharged every , which is a global. So to make them faster, well, you would either have to make everything faster or give it a Power to Shields ability (you could potentially do one that never turned off, but it would waste an ability slot).

or you could do power to shields that is on but dosent have to be turned on so it wouldnt waste slot,but other than that i repeat above.

still wastes a slot; if it's in number 3 or more, it just doesn't activate. Power to Shields has no ability component (it's just a unit ability), so there's no way to simply make it permanently on unless there's an unknown tag that controls it for the Combat_Bonus_Ability. But correct me if I'm wrong...

Look in uniqueunits.xml and find home one, the look at its abilities and you'll see one called "Akbar_Combat_Bonus", which has the line: Space_Automatic, i've also seen Skirmish_Automatic in the abilities of the skirmish space stations.

You simpely go in to XMl and do what you want to do, but you got to balance it out if you catch what I mean?

he needs to know what to do in the XML to change the shield recharge rate.

oh well in that case you would have to go into the Ship's XML that you want to change the recharge rate of, Unless you want to do it for all of them witch would take a while...
