How many "tiles" from a planetary shield generator does the shield extend?

Can a shield be only one "tile"? Say just over one city on a planet?

Is it safe to assume that a planet that is mostly covered by ocean is unshielded?

Thanks,
Lorenzas

It's a 3x3 square, with the shield projector in the centre square.

No. They're always a fixed size.

Cities, including shield generators, can be built on ocean. Lava is the only thing that will prevent shields.

And, even if you cannot see a city, SGs can be built in hidden cities which you cannot see on the galaxy map.

Hal: Can't build shields in caves either.

Thanks guys. Another question:

I know you can't descend or ascend through a shield but what about cross-terrain travel? I believe I have walked through a shield before but can a vehicle or ship pass through one?

Ground travel works fine.

There are 2 types of shield generators, which is better?

There is only 1 type of shield generator. What you may be confusing is the Shield Projector - this just boosts the shields of a station in orbit of a planet, and has nothing to do with placing a shield around a planet. Think the 2nd Deathstar, and the shield from the moon of Endor.
