    Hi, so I'm playing solo, against default Traders, Scavengers, and Pirates. I was wondering the minimum Shields, in recharge and capacity, to have no damage to my ship. I think I went a bit overkill on my outposts, with 15 mil shield capacity, and 500k recharge. But I want to know whats the minimum I can do without getting damage. Thanks in advance

    Since the QF-Update it might be a little bit different, but before the update I always used 2mil cap and decent recharge, that would require 8k cap blocks and a minimum of 1,6k recharge blocks.

    I would use a maximum of 5k shield capacitor blocks and 5k recharge blocks for smaller outposts. If you want to fend off a bigger fleet of vanilla NPCs I would use up to 50k shield capacitor blocks.
