Hello
I've been playing the solar system map in 9.1 with classic HW2 and really liking it , i'm quite new to the mod so took me a while to figure how everything works but no matter how much i try i can't figure out this damage from the sun

So basically i wanna capture this cloak Megalith that lies between Mercury and the Sun but every time i go past Earth i take massive amounts of damage from the sun

I tried the shuttles (support capital) tried normal and fleet carriers with shields , radiation fields and repair modules but i can never get close enough coz i get pulled out of hyperspace way too far and i die way before i get there

My latest attempt was to use the carrier with mothership , powercore etc in the command formation (everything docked into massive ship)
I enabled the solar shield and remote solar shield option after researching both to max , even build the mass shield but i still take massive amounts of damage.
Even with boost lvl 3 with drive module racing at 650m/s from earth to Mercury i BARELY made it
Strangely only the command shipyard was taking the damage and not the mothership or any of others

Once i got to Mercury shadow it seemed to help but i don't dare to make a run for the megalith

How do you guys deal with it? am i missing something? How do i protect myself from solar radiation and get close enough to grab the megalith?

Thanks

This takes me back a bit.

Damage from the sun can be prevented by remaining within a certain distance of an Orbital Station, and the Gujking Formation (all the ships docked) once a Solar Shield or Remote Solar Shield is active.

Yep i did the formation with the command shipyard like i said and clicked on the solar shield + remote space shield under ship orders but i still died

I even built an orbital station when i was very damaged (which did hyperspace in) but i still died while being next to it

This was when i halfway between Mercury and the cloak megalith which was really close to the sun but how are you supposed to cap that megalith ?
