BrewLAN is a mod for Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance that has been in on and off development by a team of one for almost a decade. It adds a wide variety of new units for all factions, as well as offering several new game modes and features. The core design goals for the mod are simple; to add new, interesting, and visually aesthetic units which complement those already in existence and to maximise technical compatibility with other mods.

2500 energy per second upkeep (overall)
210000 shield health (per ring)
Included in Bubble Tea. Creates a lattice of shield generator drones which revolve around the central structure. Each ring of drones has 210000 shield health total, as does the cenral structure. Opperational costs are 2020 for the structure, 50 each for the inner ring drones, and 15 each for the outer ring drones. Deactivating and reactivating the shield averages out the current shield health values across the lattice.
