The advanced shield generator has a 90 degrees arc of coverage and a shield geometry of a circle with 10-tile unit radius. In comparison the vanilla Shield Generator has a shield geometry of a circle with 7.5-tile unit radius and a power drain of 100 power unit points per second. As such the power drain of the advanced shield is 10/7.5 = 1.3 compared to the vanilla shield which translates to 130 power unit point per second. As an improved shield AmmoDrainPerDamage has been decreased from 0.5 to 0.25. This means its damage load is 1/0.65 ~ 53% less for a limited bombardment and 30% more for a full scale bombardment. With only 7 batteries compared to vanilla's 6 at disposal, the shield will fail (6/1)/(7/1.3)= 1.114 sooner in a comparative setup under the same full scale barrage.

Usage

Build it like a vanilla shield.

As of 0.6.2 the shield can be switched to be invisible.

As of 0.7.2.8 WIP1 the part has become customize-able. You can now set the shield size, the shield angle, and if need be adjust the distance by -1 to close any possible gap. The shield angles are currently fixed at 5 degrees intervals. The reason being simplicity and consistent precision.
