An easy-to-craft, almost transparent force field to protect your base! Number per tribe configurable!


What It Does
Adds a new engram for a modified Tek Shield that is immune to damage, does not require tek engrams, and does not burn fuel. This is perfect for PvP servers that want to allow tribes to have a small base that is completely protected.

  • Clean and completely stackable.
  • Shield max size is configurable. Default max size is the same as a tek shield.
  • Configurable limit on number of shields per tribe. Default is one.
  • Shield opacity is VERY low. This means it won't look horrible in dark places, like the Aberration map.
  • The shield ignores babies! Baby dinos will no longer be thrust out into oblivion.
  • Does not require access to tek.
  • Does not require fuel.

  • ShieldSizeMult
    • Float
    • Multiplies the default tek shield size by this number.
    • Default is 1.0.
  • TribeLimit
    • Integer
    • Number of shields a tribe is allowed to have.
    • Default is 1.
  • MinOpacity
    • Float
    • The minimum opacity players can set their shield. 1 is 100% opacity (fully visible), 0 is 0% (completely invisible).
    • Default is 0.
  • MaxOpacity
    • Float
    • The maximum opacity players can set their shield. 1 is 100% opacity (fully visible), 0 is 0% (completely invisible).
    • Default is 1.
[SafeBase] ShieldSizeMult=1.0 TribeLimit=1 MinOpacity=0.01 MaxOpacity=0.5

@Lao, any word on a fix for this mod?

Since Structures plus had the same issue with items not being accessible and the problem has been fixed there by a mod update it should be fixable here

Whelp this bites. I've been using this mod forever. Any ETA on when it may be fixed? I get it's a wildcard issue, but I have friends who's bases are now vulnerable as they do not have shields around their homes now. I may let them move in with me to keep them protected for the time being

Sadly if WC doesn't fix the modded item menus and radical menus with the game and not the dev kit this mod will be dead. It's broken due to the bug with today's "Jan 14" update

Honestly, should be removed from the workshop. Looks super nice at first, but if you touch the opacity your game crashes, and for other mods like primal fear and overhaul mods of the sorta the shield is entirely useless unless someone is nearby keeping it in render distance. The entire experience with this is horrible and I hope someone debating downloading this mod looks at these comments. Dont download it. Its not worth it.

Hello, the Safe Base doesnt work anymore in the right way, if we want to change the Opacity, we all get a Shooter Game Crash, is it possible to repair this Bug? We really like this Mod, but if it doesnt work anymore, we cant use it anymore.

Like a Solid version? I don't think this could be configured to that level of 'transparency' lol. Maybe another mod?
