Super front shield...
« on: August 17, 2012, 04:50:10 AM »

So yeah...

lets say you mod a onslaught

put a omni shield generator hullmod

after that you can put on the front shield generator

then remove Omni shield generator

And BOOM you get a super mega shield of DOOOOOM

In case of you wondering what this does



Ballistic paragon much ?

Good spot.

It's also possible to do the reverse.

- Take an omni shield ship
- Add Front Shield Emitter
- Add Omni Shield Emitter
- Remove the Front Shield Emitter

Bug: The Omni Shield Emitter isn't removed.
Obviously this bug isn't such an advantage  ::)


Interestingly neither bug occurs if the "Front Shield Generator" mod is active, meaning you can't have 'super front shield' on an ordinarily unshielded ship.

I kind of like it, it's basically an elite tweak.
