Title is self explanatory, I saw a red X next to it on the rules page and I wanted to know whether or not they did more than look cool.

I think they give 5 armor

Aye, but it looks cool.

go figure, i just bought 150 of them - geez, this game has a lot left unfinished for being 17 years old. Somebody needs to make a guide all about all the things you think would work but don't.

If it has a red X on the rules page it doesn't work.

Like the shields. :P

At least you are prepared for the future?

Do not evoke the wrath of the coders.

Been playing SWC (with some breaks) since Year 3. I would rather them take their time and implement everything properly and as they intend than rush it. Otherwise we get the A/E code again...

Gun and shield...not a bad combination. :-รพ

Its not so much that we need it to gain 5 armor or whatnot (that would take all of a few seconds and something I'm fairly sure I can do right now), but the idea is that they'll actually do something else/more later.

+5 armor now plus more later sounds great :D

It also sounds like a headache when it comes to coding 'more' stuff in later. I'm not a coder, but what little I remember learning of it tells me that it's more difficult to work with old code than just make new code, since you're limited by what you've already done.

And who's using shields, anyway?

I like to have me some heraldic shields on me walls!

Welp, time to slap a custom image on all the shields and become the knights of the unimplemented.

Lol - sounds like a plan, maybe if everyone starts using them they will get coded

Generally speaking, a line of code written for shields is a line of code unwritten for the other features in progress. That's why Sel posts those priority flowcharts every quarter or so.

Syn... if they read the things that were posted on the website, the would have realized that the shields werent implemented to begin with.

Yeah, but I thought that like ''not implemented'' meant like additional features, but it still gave 5 armor , no we know !. Also I am certain that no body reads rule page, except on some occasion that involve salivating at rare ships.
