Weird shield strengths


One thing I’ve noticed while designing ships is that the actual strength of a shield is not related to its name, power, cost or anything. These are the relative strengths of the cruiser options:

I assume this was a mistake, but if not, I think the different types of shield should at least be renamed, to avoid confusion.


IIRC there’s an interesting thing where heavier shields have better resistances but less raw capacity. I think it goes across all ship levels. I assume that’s how they were named, but yes it’s confusing.
