Layered, segmented energy shields combined with a nice distortion effect. Just run script create_shields and you are done! Example objects included. Lightning effect on hit!
Damage is taken to the outer layers first. Depending on how many segments you have, it matters which direction you are hit from.
This shield system uses paths for ultimate flexibility! The included script creates a path for a circular shield, but you could modify it to look like anything you want.
