It just fills me with awe to have a shield that is so powerful, it hides half my character. What's more, it even had a nice "under construction" icon, until I went outside an outpost and it became a normal icon. The bug is still there though
To be honest, a blinding-white energy shield should surely have more armor than that...
EDIT: The model has now returned to normal. Alas... my dreams of a blinding energy shield are blown to bits.
