|Product Version||3.6.14 RC5|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||3.6.14|
|Summary||0002643: Shield icons generated by engine reflect incorrect quadrants.|
|Description||This applies to all shield HUD elements (player shields, target shields) that use the engine-generated square brackets. |
When these shield quadrants are generated by "generate icon" in ships.tbl, they reflect the wrong quadrant. This can be cross-referenced by only attacking a specific quadrant and watching what flashes, or by comparing the target shield icon with the mini shield indicator near the center of the screen.
Basically, this error makes it nigh impossible to micromanage shield distribution in a fight.
Front Quadrant -> (drawn as) Front Quadrant (correct)
Left Quadrant -> (drawn as) Right Quadrant
Right Quadrant -> Rear Quadrant
Rear Quadrant -> Right Quadrant
I know for sure that the front quadrant is drawn correctly and that the other three are not. However, I can't exactly remember which is which among those three quadrants.
|Steps To Reproduce||Load up any mod with ships that use the generate icon flag.|
WoD, Dimensional Eclipse both feature ships of this sort.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|To aid testing, I have uploaded a mod with a test mission. In that mission, four sentry guns appear one at a time to shoot each shield quadrant in this order: front, right, rear, left. Messages will be displayed to tell you which quadrant is being shot. The Ulysses (the default ship) uses the generated shield icon, while other ships use the normal icons.|
