How exactly does the damage get calculated with shields? well more specifically, how is the shield energy used while mitigating damage.
e.g. say a pulse laser hits a deflector-2 shield for 100 dmg.
energy defense 60%
projectile defense 80%
explosive defense 60%
I know some damage gets through and damages the amor while the shields are still up.
1) the shield catches 60%, so 40 points amor dmg, the shield loses 60 energy? (total 100)
2) 40 points armor dmg, 100 shield energy used? (shield loses full 100 energy for dmg)
3) 40 armor points, 40 shield energy (shield energy usage also reduced to 40% of dmg)
4) 40 points divided between shield energy and some portion going to armor?
5) something else?
