    Give this Apex Adder some decent shields

    So I Just completed an assault mission, killed the NPC targeted, went some 400-500 meters away from the facility so that I could call the taxi... which hardly made a few hundred meters before being destroyed by the local authorities... I'm fine with the idea that this Apex ride can be attacked...

    Damages, shield and bleedthrough

    After some quick tests with the rocket-launcher it appears that there is no bleedthrough damage between shield and health. For those not familiar with the concept, it means that if you have 1 point of shield left and take 20 damage, that last point of shield absorb 20 damage instead of 1...

    Which is Better?

    Hello I am having a hard time deciding on this build and wondering what would be better, even Resistances for my shields or basically ignoring the Resistances and tanking it for as many Mj in the shields as I can get? If you look at the pictures below... in one pic, I have pretty even...

    New shield experimental.

    It's been several years since the old random roll system for the engineers has been gone and it took a very useful secondary effect with it, increases to optimal hull mass. Shortly after the new system was implemented Frontier stated that they're "looking into it" in one of their livestreams...

    Guardian Shield Reinforcements - Power Priority

    Has something changed recently with this and the Guardian Module Reinforcement where you can no longer change their power priority? I know I'm a little late to party on all of the guardian modules but is there a reason why the FSD Booster can be powered on/off and have a priority set but the...

    Ships Shield tank clipper.

    Hello people, I've been theory crafting lately about how effective the Imperial clipper is as a shield tank. You see with those big class 7 bi-weave shields, you can have some impressive regen going. That regen also negates some of the damage coming in. Now if you stack resistances on top of...

    Newcomer / Intro FDL vs Clipper for Combat (with numbers this time)

    I have read billions of "FDL vs Clipper" topics and everyone said "Clipper is a gorgeous cheap multipurpose ship but FDL is a clear choice for combat bla bla" than decided to work on theory and numbers. I made two different combat builds, one of them is close to my current FDL (just a bit over...

    Balancing Hulls vis a vis Shields (and making the shield meta less dominant vis a vis hull tanks)

    I think that it’s not a matter of debate that there is significant imbalance between Hull and Shields in this game; Shields are far more important in comparison to Hull for ships, which is detrimental for ships which rely on high hull strength for their survivability. Therefore, I (using the...

    Many have commentated on it but few have thrown it in the face of ED but dagnamit even nowadays we have self cleaning glass for conservatories, surely by the current ED year we've progressed quite a bit? For a QoL can we get something to sort this out. My example is below: In case this self...

    For this subject, the only posts I could find were ancient - from 2.3. I read where you were "supposed" to get them back then: Boom State systems with high population in either USS, Hi-Res or CZ by scanning ships. But lets not talk specifically about ASPA's just yet: The problem starts long...

    What happened to proposed armor hardness and shield boosters stacking diminishing returns?

    https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/332706-Shield-Booster-and-ship-armour-changes-feedback-thread We had some really promising overhaul of the "Big 3", which would make them have weaker shields, but much tougher hulls, especially vs smaller ships. Realism, balance or call it whatever...

    Beluga Liner weird fitting issue?

    You *can* fit a 5A shield to your Beluga liner, but because all size 5 slots are *restricted*, you'd have to stick it into a size 6 slot. This single issue makes it pointless to buy the Beluga Liner, unless you want to baby business/first class customers. (I can't imagine NPC's as VIPs... NPC...

    I am sorry, I had to post this title, somebody had to do it. So I got: 8A Shields. 6 x Shieldboosters. 8A Powerplant. Result: 1200 shieldpower. You call THIS a defender? My "Fat Ivette" Corvette has double the amount at the same setting with 7A shields. No engineers by the way. As a...
