Broken Shields

What does it do?

This mod "breaks" the shield systems of all player ships, so that you only start with level 1 shields -- just like the Zoltan B. It will cost 100 scrap to get your shields working.

The Stealth ships are unaffected. Buying shields still gets you level 2 shields.

This mod is compatible with other mods, including those that modify ships. Load it last.


But why???

Maybe you like shieldless runs, but feel they make the game too easy.

Maybe you recognise how overpowered and unbalanced shields are. This is the nerf that finally fixes FTL.

If you want to make the stealth ships start with level 1 shields, you can change the

Code: Select all

<startPower>2</startPower>
tag to 1, so that it will be level 1 when you buy them on those ships.

Thanks.

I didn't want to change how Stealth ships played. This mainly a convenient way to play shieldless runs with other ships.

All good. This seems like a pretty cool challenge to try out, but I really don't like that Zoltan cruiser. I'll definitely try it out some time though!
