There are some pending changes to defenses based on review made.
Shield Arrays and Emitters A major discrepancy was noticed between arrays and emitters after study, to such a point that it was decided to rework the cost of them. Shield arrays and emitters will now share the same price progression, putting them on equal footing.
Shields (Emitters/Arrays), 2, Scale as (2, 2, 3/ +1 cost every odd array) 10 Arrays/Emitters = 40 DP
Compared to previous
40 DP = 20 Shield emitters 40 DP = 6.7 Shield Arrays (6 = 33 points, 7 = 42) This means a reduction in number of shield emitters but drastic increase in number of shield arrays
Armor Armor will be seeing additional researches added for it, Specifically integral fields will now have generations to improve its endurance. This in turn will allow armored ships to survive more abuse
Integral Fields Gen II (Tier 4 tech) Post Count: 45 | Prerequisites: Integral Fields Integral Fields Gen III (Tier 5 tech) Post Count: 50 | Prerequisites: Integral Fields Gen II Integral Fields Gen IV (Tier 6 tech) Post Count: 55 | Prerequisites: Integral Fields Gen III Integral Fields Gen V (Tier 7 tech) Post Count: 65 | Prerequisites: Integral Fields Gen IV
Overall this doesn't change much but does allow vessels to survive better if their shields go down during combat.
