Suggestion: Shield power option, "Sustained afterburner
« on: June 13, 2012, 12:13:40 AM »
Can we get not just full/half/zero shield switches, please but also the "Sustained afterburner", where the ship computer would automatically drop shield power to the breakpoint where you don't lose power, but don't have to drop shield more than necessary?

For example, for undamaged Galaxy with Engine 3 and Shield 3, the breakpoint is at about 90% (five full squares and one at 1/3) shield.

I can run at sustained afterburner at that shield power, but only with depleted energy. Why not make it possible to do so at full energy?
