Great, thank you.
I knew about energy weapons efficiency and the kinetic damage against exosed hull (when shields are down). I was just puzzled about kinetic damage against active shields.

So full list:
- energy (against normal shield): 90% to shields, 10% to hull
- energy (against resilient shield): 90% to shields, 5% to hull, 5% absorbed
- kinetic (against normal shield): 10% to shields, 10% to hull, 80% absorbed
- kinetic (against resilient shield): 10% to shields, 5% to hull, 85% absorbed
- transphasic (against normal shield): 10% to shields, 50% to hull, 40% absorbed
- transphasic (against resilient shield): 10% to shields, 55% to hull, 45% absorbed
- any (no shields): 100% to hull

Is it correct?
Or is the 80% absorbtion of kinetic damage by shield rather calculated from the remaining 90% damage after bleedthrough is subtracted? That would give 18% damage to shields and 72% absorbtion.
