Shield boosters now give a flat bonus to shield instead of a percentage

What's the rationale?

I have played with it for a bit now, and I have to say that don't like this change at all.

With large ships the bonus feels too weak, while with smaller ships, it's terribly overpowered to the point of feeling cheaty. Find an upgrade or two, and basically all it takes is a single unit of Naonite to build a ship that gets you to the barrier...

Just as an example, I have one ship design that scales fairly well from Naonite (or Titanium, before the 'build knowledge' size limitations were introduced) to Xanion regions, but a significant part of its volume had to be dedicated to shield systems, and even a "golden" upgrade added only what – around 66%? Now, that same upgrade easily gets to double the total original amount, with only about a quarter still coming from the actual shield systems, rendering them almost inconsequential.
