Shield does not always protect ship!

Topic content:

Describe the bug in a few words/sentences.

Shield can be shot through, damaging the hull.

Why do you think this is a bug.

Because my shields were full when I took hull danage.

How often does this bug occur.

Infrequently, but enough to notice.

What was your last action/How to reproduce the bug.

Take damage from multiple enemies from various angles to your shield. Higher velocity shot the better. AOE does not ever hit hull.

Detailed explanation of the bug.(Only if you need to add more information to 1.)

When flying a ship (mainly a frigate, but my Rockwell has been hit as well) the hull of your ship is sometimes damaged through your shield, even if you have a fully charged shield. (No, it is not ramming damage. I was both in the middle of nowhere AND using the shield mod that takes collisions.) It happens most frequently with high-velocity shots like from Biomorphs or disintegrators.

Your system specs + Operating system as DX Diag.

Windows 7, 10gb RAM, 4-core processor, 1tb harddrive.(unrelated to issue)

Videos + Screenshots (Only if needed, but in most cases they are helpful)

I haven’t got any because This happens in combat.

model of da ship is outside of shield… I dont think they care, this thingie is around for quite some time

On what ships you detected this bug?

List may not be complete, but from what I heard it’s T4 all Guard/Torpedo class models, such as Guards and Torpedo Frigates (Tormentor, Tormentor S, Tormentor AE).

However, Top Secret project gunship, such as Mjolnir has the same blind spot.

Anyone, please write down any additional ships, because there is more, plus show the exact spots on the screenshot or even provide a short video clip.

Koro is right, but I’ve also seen this happen on T3+ Federation Engineers, and T4+ Federation Tacklers. Also happens with the Jericho Sawtooth and the Octopus. I know it happens on other ships I just have not payed enough attention to that.

Please, attach logs and screenshots for proof the bug
