I'd like to have the scrin harvester to have a shield like the Reaper-17 harvester in Kane's wrath.
Adding the Devastator shield, causes the shield to draw under the harvester. Adding the tripod shield draws a shield that cover the harvester, but looks stupid.
Is there a way to get the spherical shield to draw around the harvester?

Basically you just need to model a sphere and then scale/deform it so it fits properly around whatever unit it is supposed to go around; then apply the shield shader to it.

Also the Search function does wonders. :blink:
