Ring Shield

Jump to: navigation, search

Ring Shields provide an armour boost to the craft. This boost depends on the sizes of both the ring shield, and the craft. The boost is applied to 1 dimension only, determined by the orientation of the Shield Generator block.


Components[edit | edit source]

  • Ring Pipe: Pipes are used to connect the shield ring into a continuous ring.
  • Ring Corner: Corners are used to connect the shield ring into a continuous ring.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Bonus[edit | edit source]

Power Draw[edit | edit source]

The ring length is the length of Ring Pipes and Ring Corners in metres. Squares lead to the greatest area per ring length.

Examples[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Ring shields are most energy-efficient as large, square rings. At time of writing, it is possible to fill an area with pipes, but filling an enclosed area with pipes draws additional power for no gain.
