Nebula Fields are a feature that was introduced with the NPC targets of the Umbra Faction in August 2018.
General[edit | edit source]
Nebula Fields act as a form of damage zone within the NPC targets themselves, similar to the function of a Terminus Mine. If any ship flies into them (indicated by flashes of lightning), it will suffer damage over time depending on the type of damage the Nebula is doing, according to color. For example, Blight Nebula Fields, which appear grey, deal Blight Damage. Squadrons are unaffected by Nebula Fields.
The amount of damage that is taken from Nebula fields can be reduced if the ship passing through has resistances against it. But otherwise, it is recommended not to pass through the Nebula fields as it will result in unnecessary damage.
As of the April 2019 Update, Ships with Shields that resist the particular damage type of the nebula field will not be affected by enemy fields. The Nebula Resist from Umbra and Pharmakon Hulls have been remove and thus they will take damage inside the nebula fields, unless they have the requisite defense inside.
