Price: $5

 

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

Nice stuff.. Worth buying. I liked the way, the enery shields look. Maybe, I'll be using this in my future projects. I just made a few changes and it works, the way I want it to. Good work! ;)

Nice. I bought this but I was wondering if it was possible to make the shield sections appear around the ship, much like the blue shields in the picture. Is this possible?

I think you are in luck. The shields already do this, but you only see them for a split second. They can be made to appear constantly by commenting out "if shields_up" on line 13 in the draw_gui event of the shield object. Other than that, you can play around with the inputs of the create_shield script in the create event of the ship object, experiment with different sprites, etc.

Hm, that's not the effect I was talking about. In the screenshots and at the top of this post there's a ship surrounded in blue with the concentric circles that seem to show the shield health around the ship. This effect, is it possible with this script? 1419478964_large.jpg?1419478964

Yes, the rings in the picture demonstrate one possible appearance of the shield itself. No, the rings in the picture are not health bars, per se.

 

Having said that, I am thinking that other people might want the same thing as you, so I will add it in the next update :)
