Simple shield change

#1
The idea is simple, power draw for a shield increases by .1-1% (depending on shield strength) for every hit it has taken in the last 15 seconds. This may seem trivial, and aginst slow firing weapons it is. However, this would make shields somewhat vulnerable to high volume weapons, and especially pre detonating frag shells.

Take a shield that has strength 10 and draws 5000 power, and lets say that for a strength 10 shield every hit increases power draw by .1%. Now lets imagine a gun firing 400 rpm of frag shells that detonate early into 25 particles. in 15 seconds that is 100 shells, but 2500 frags hitting the shield. The peak power draw for this shield now becomes 60766 power!

A new field would need to be added to the shield of when to simply let it collapse to avoid a blackout on your ship, but I think this would go a long way towards balancing out the feel of shields.
