Military Shields Ships
This OXP sets military shields for NPC-ships with large monolithic mass.
This OXP is based on the N-Shields OXP. Thanks go to Ngalo for his N-Shields code.
This OXP sets military shields for NPCs with large mass. This ship upgrade includes in-built shield boosters and energy grids (grid technologies).
(!) This OXP is only for NPCs, as:
- - player has many equipment OXPs for upgrade: Energy Capacitors, Naval Grids, Shield Cycler and Ship Configuration.
- - also it will solve a compatibility with equipment OXPs, these grid technologies will be available for player ships.
For NPCs with the highest energy recharge rates (more than 10 - simulated NEU), this OXP will replace the usual shield boosters with NPC Shield Boosters and NPC Shield Enhancers in order to simulate correctly and avoid an overfitting recharge rate.
Military Multiply Shields Enhancement (MMS) = grid technologies = (?). //WAIT
The label 'MMS' from ship names should be deleted before public release.
(WIP) The following OXP is recommended:
- NShields (v0.7.1). //WIP: create a simple script mechanics (like that used in vanilla oolite)
The following OXP's are listed as recommended, in that additional ships will become available if they are installed.
- gsagostinho's Texture Packs

- NPC Equipment Damage
- Helps balance this OXP by allowing NPC equipment to be damaged when shields are down.
- NPC Energy Units
- Allowing NPCs to fit extra energy units is important for fairness if they have proper Military Shield Enhancers.
- TODO: Need upgrade for correct set a recharge rates for ship with simulated EEU and NEU.
