I know from the stats that a ship’s shield capacity (example: cap = 1000) is equal on all four sides (Fore/Back/Left/Right all have a capacity of 1000). What I was starting to wonder does your ship’s shield distribute the recharge rate equally to each side or does it divide the rate to evenly to the 4 sides?

Is it like this:

Shield is 1000 and recharge is 100 for 6 sec.
Fore = 1000 recharge 100@6 sec
Back = 1000 recharge 100@6 sec
Left = 1000 recharge 100@6 sec
Right = 1000 recharge 100@6 sec

Or is it like this:

Shield is 1000 and recharge is 100 for 6 sec.
Fore = 1000 recharge 25@6 sec
Back = 1000 recharge 25@6 sec
Left = 1000 recharge 25@6 sec
Right = 1000 recharge 25@6 sec

If it does divide the recharge rate evenly then does it divide the recharge time equally as well? (IE 6 seconds divided 4 ways or 1.5 seconds [6 sec/4] of recharge for all sides)

It does not divide.

Doesnt divide, each shield facing is a seperate entity with its own capacity and regen (what is shown in the shield tooltip), however, you can divide the capacity between them by clicking the ship inside the sheild bit of the HUD, so it will make all 4 facings equal and recharge them equally
