Energy Rebalance & Energy Rebalance (Ship Configuration Compatible) or Energy Rebalance SCC (modification made by Phkb)


This OXP rebalances energy between shields and energy banks.

If forward/aft shield levels have dropped below 25% of maximum capacity under fire, energy from the energy banks is transferred directly onto the shield in question, preventing damage of equipment and cargo, until energy banks are drained under 64 units.

If the energy level drops below the critical 32 unit level, energy transfer switches back from the remaining shields to the energy banks.

While Energy Rebalance looks to be an extremely simplified and fully automated "lite" version of Shield Cycler (author Lone Wolf), it is not an equipment upgrade. It is a redefined game mechanic.

This oxp is needed for those using Hard Way who wish to take advantage of the Traffic Lights OXP priority docking for dying ships. The reduction of the shield levels is detected by Traffic Lights - thus ensuring priority docking.

  • IronHide OXP (author Thargoid) - some code tricks (not included onto final code, but very helpful in testing of some ideas).
  • Phkb - editing Energy Rebalance to adapt it for Ship Configuration.
