well yeah i guess, but for some reason i view the lucifer's shield system as being unique. but i doesnt really matter.

 
unique shields............i don't think so............the usual shields.........but the Lucifer haves 5~6 (how many?, can't remember) reactors to power the shields, that's why they are so strong...

normal shivan vessels have 1 reactor to power the ship...
the Lucifer haves several of them because  it needs to power a gigantic shield...

oh i see, so the game engine is programmed to have beams pierce shields no matter how strong they are?

 
YES!
when i'm hit by the AAA's........my shield is intact, but my hull is completely trashed.......

oh i get it now. Could there be a way to have beams not pierce shields. I mean i remeber seeing a weapon that had a "pierce shields" tag on it. If beams have this tag could we just remove it, or is it "hardcoded".

 
hmmm...you must be wearing some "unique-shield color" glasses when you play FS1 with the Lucifer around....(that was a really bad joke, i think)

Simply tick the -nobeampierce option in the FS2_Open launcher.

Didn't V also say (somewhere...Icefire would know, he knows everything Volition have ever said anywhere, ever - or at least it sometimes seems that way) that the Lucifer was only invulnerable to FS1 era weapons?

Funny, almost teh exact opposite happens to me
i.e. My shield goes down but my hull stays intact until the second hit.
