Summary0021067: No research for shield frigate
DescriptionI can't find a research topic which would allow for a boost to my shield frigate in the armored golem fleet. Seems at odds with the research capabilities for pretty much every other mobile unit. I don't think I saw research for the sentinel frigate either.

Somethings are set to be "Upgrade From Fleet Only", which isn't done yet. Forcefield Frigates are one of these (as well as the Forcefield Generators).

Sentry Frigates are "Markless" and can never be upgraded.

* Rather than being markless, Sentry Frigates are now mark 1 but only get upgraded by the fleet itself upgrading (which isn't a working mechanic yet, it's coming!)

I don't think there's actually a reason to upgrade those, which is why I had made them Markless to begin with. They used to gain Cloak Points and eventually become Tachyon Immune, but they can't be used for scouting and generally don't get revealed anymore.

As is they reveal cloaked forces pretty quickly in a wide area, though there's no harm whatsoever in having them upgrade.

Thanks!

* The tooltips -- for player ships or anything on the build sidebar -- now tell you if the ship is unable to be upgraded, or what techs upgrade it if any do, or if they are of the sort that only upgrade when their fleet itself upgrades.

Ah, fair enough! If you want to make them markless again, that's fine with me. Or give them increasing stuff.

Either way they get some extra hp, which I'm sure is welcome.
