Hi Raygoza,

actualy there is not much new plugin code involved here. I am using the functions for adding and removing overlays announced by pastelmind.

Calls of these methods are embedded in code very specific to this use case so it wouldn't help anyone to post it.

I can make the overlays public, of course. I will add a zip-file containing the GRPs in the download section the next days.
The corresponding image entries need to be configured as follows:
- use regular shadow iscript (ID: 275) to make the overlay follow direction and animation of the main sprite
- use color remapping function (blue for the same look as in SC SUM, orange or green)
- other settings as for shadow image entries (except for the show-if-cloaked-flag)

"Shield Induction" is actually quite an old ability of the Mothership. Until version 1.36 this skill was available by default and it was not visually indicated which units are under protection of the Mothership. This lead to a misunderstanding - or even unawareness - of this feature.

With SC SUM 1.37 the functionality of Shield Induction will become a lot clearer as it needs to be researched now and more importantly units within the Mothership radius will show a bluish overlay.

Have fun with this first look on the upcomming patch!
