The new method of displaying resistances shows only six damage types chosen accodring to the shield/armor's level. This gives no indication of what higher damage type weapons do (for instance ferian weapons) and in some cases causes resistances to be completely hidden from the player. Ceratops 5T quasi-armor, for instance, resists plasma, but the player will never find that out without decompiling the gamedata and learning to read the xml because the game only displays the adjusted hitpoints for laser, kinetic, particle, blast, ion, and thermo for level 6 shields.
