Shield visual effects

December 25, 2017

Even though I had put up some text to indicate the shield status of a ship, it doesn’t go without some visual effect to indicate a shield presence. This is mainly because I’m too lazy to read that info text every time I want to give some command to the ship. A more catchy indication is required.

Also during the economical phase you can’t move ship or adjust power diversion. I found myself clicking on ships multiple times during the economy phase without realizing that it was that phase only to thing “why aren’t my clicks registering?” followed by a “duh!” second. So I used a similar effect to indicate that you can’t select ships at the moment.
