Something I noticed player around with Shield Support Beams: even if a cruiser/dreadnaught loses shields, the Shield Support beam can still restore them back to full. The ship will no longer have any natural shield regeneration, but it will always be able to regenerate via support beam. Not sure if this is a bug or intentional, but at any rate, I’m posting it here.
Yikes, no that is definitely not intentional. I shall investigate. Its not something I’ve seen yet. I’m releasing an update tomorrow, and this is too late to go in it, but I shall definitely investigate.
