A shield generator. Protective!

Unobtainable Object

Shield Generator is an object unobtainable by players through normal means. This item's information is present in the game files, but not intended by developers to be in players' possession.

Shield Generator is an object that 'protects' blocks in an area around it, preventing blocks from being placed or mined. When taking enough damage by weapons it explodes and hurts the player, disabling the protection. It can also be wired to allow for toggling on and off.

Shield Generators are currently only found in Hylotl Underwater Cities. Functionally the protection it provides works just like a shield generator switch.
