it'd have to be an armor type, as currently hand-held items cannot affect stats or armor.

I remember such stat-granting objects being discussed on IRC. I believe the conlusion was to make a belt-sized object (4x1) that wouldn't be detachable while on mission.

The problem: someone has to code in the rules for stopping the player from removing the belt.

Naturally, we're not talking a real shield here, but possibly some sort of a force field.

Why not remove it? It is a piece of equipment or not?

Modified combat armor code. Then modify sprites to show man in combat armor carrying shield.

items:
  - type: STR_TOWERSHIELD_ARMOR
    size: 0.8
    costBuy: 10000
    costSell: 5000
    listOrder: 10499
  - type: STR_CORPSE_TOWERSHIELD_ARMOR
    name: STR_CORPSE
    weight: 24 <--- make it weigh more.
    bigSprite: 64 <---don't know what all this stuff is...
    floorSprite: 77
    invWidth: 2
    invHeight: 3
    armor: 30 <---change this number to higher, say 100
    recover: false
armors:
  - type: STR_TOWER_SHILED_UC
    spriteSheet: XCOM_4.PCK
    spriteInv: MAN_4
    corpseItem: STR_TOWER_SHIELD__ARMOR
    storeItem: STR_TOWER_SHIELD_ARMOR
    loftemps: 3
    frontArmor: 30<--- change to 200
    sideArmor: 30
    rearArmor: 20
    underArmor: 20
    damageModifier:
      - 1.0 <-- Whichever one of these is the front change to .5
      - 1.0
      - 0.8
      - 1.0
      - 1.0
      - 1.0
      - 0.9
      - 1.0
      - 1.1
      - 1.0

That would be roughly how you do it. I only know what the fun numbers mean. The rest is dribbly drew..
