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

PINNED: Instalation of the MOD

it still works for the most part and so far no better option available the mod is in my opinion discontinued hasnt been updated since 2017 but it still works wild dinos cant get in which is fair since that is the main reason i got it was for both people not in tribe and wild dinos i dont want killing my pets in the base and also to prevent theft of items etc its best to tame them outside the shield make a mini outpost like i did its not an issue and in pvp it has some interesting encounters :D

This mod is poorly maintained by its creator @Lao. Opacity feature is broken. Once set to 0.0 it just goes back to 1.0 when you leave and come back. If you are flying carrying dinos, they fall mid air outside of the shield.

Mods needs serious updates!

have a issue with the opacity feature.. i have 2 set down.. i turn opacity on to see where its set.. then turn it off. it will turn off.. then it becomes visable again instead of invisable.. i go to check the settings it is still set to 0.. i like the other guy was also having issue with setting it down.. it keps saying something about no nearby ground.. finally i was able to set one down

I used this mod in another particular servers of mine with no problem, but I've started a TheCenter server and I'm unable to place it on the ground... Anyone else with this issue?

Bug report, if you fly into the shield faster then your game loads or the server does you get stuck inside the shield constantly bashing against it as if its pushing you out but you aren't being pushed out since you're already inside.

The first time I installed the mod I set the maxrange to 10x but when I try to change it to 8 or 8.5 it just resets back to 10x ingame. How do I change the settings if the ini doesn't work?

Hello, how to change the placement distance between two shields? Thank you in advance.

Love the mod. A small request, can you make another opition to increase the size intervals by 2 instead of .2 or have both? I would be willing to donate for it.

That image is from Roblox though, ya might want it to look like what it is in the game.
