By that logic we wouldn't get bounties either. Or be able to track pilots.

Not sure if ccp was on drugs when they thought up these modules. But the drone control unit is pointless. The only difference is less cpu and/or powergrid. Now I'm not sure if CCP has ever flown a super carrier. But I have never once seen anyone have any troubles fitting things on a super. The prices of these modules will be so low for an officer mod, its stupid. If you wanted to make it worth hauling a 3,000 m3 item (first officer mod that big) then make it be +2 drones instead of +1. That would actually make it worth putting on those ratting supers. Not to mention all the drone "Officer" mods will not be used on titans like most other officer mods. So this too will decrease their value and how often they are used as well.

a couple other ideas

-Faction mods would be great since drones are still missing those.
-Rouge drone faction ships.

Dropping the size to 250 or 500 would probably increase the utility somewhat, if combat bonuses aren't desired that might be an alternative.

Also, I, too, would like to see Rogue Drone missions. But there has to be one titled "Goodlife".

OK, seriously,
I appreciate the attempt, but like we used to say in the MARINES, good initiative, poor execution.
Particularly, the officer drone control unit. Its unique in that, its the only capital module drop i know of in the game. Its worth is exactly that of a normal DCU, because no one needs new or better DCUs. Carriers don't suffer from fitting issues. Its just one more chuckle some gankers are going to get when they kill a needlessly pimped ratting thanatos.

So unless its parlayed with some other bonus's, like +2 drones, or improved fighter or other drone tracking, speed, damage, range. Its useless.

In the end a poor dev sat at a desk for hours and hours making a module that serves no purpose, and like skill points are to players, time is a devs most valuable resource.

Please re-examine the officer dcu's. they serve no purpose over current t1 dcus.







I propose fighter damage modification!!

I like to have my cake and eat it too

It would seem that, at the moment, the officer drone control units are not even worth the cargo space they take up.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

Shocked

and Icelandic thespian drone pron also. well played Smile

CCP, there are off buttons for ship explosions, missile effects, turret effects, etc. "Immersion" does not seem to be harmed by those. So, [u]please[/u] give us a persisting off button for the jump gate and autoscan visuals.

i would like to see the officer DCU get a bonus to fighter damage and fighter bomber reduction in explosion radius.


Something like for:

D-34343

Plus 1 active drone.

Fighter damage increase by 15% and fighter bomber explosion radius by 15%

then for:

F-435454

Plus 1 active drone.

Fighter damage increase by 16% and fighter bomber explosion radius by 16%

then for:

P-434554

Plus 1 active drone.

Fighter damage increase by 17% and fighter bomber explosion radius by 17%

then for:

W-634

Plus 1 active drone.

Fighter damage increase by 18% and fighter bomber explosion radius by 18%




regular stacking penalty occurs...

At the end of the game both the pawn and the Queen go in the same box.

Almoust it, but i suggest even more difference between that shiny modules, like: 2 of them give plus 2 active drones and low bonus to damage and expl. radius and for another just like you said. Like, i already have my damage bonus from, revenant and i want more active drones. Sure it need get balanced in that way.

First off, look what you've done CCP, even the commonfolk can't spell ROGUE anymore.

Also, there ARE Rogue drone faction ships.

Rogue Drone FACTION (sentient) Battleships. Also navigate through this link to see battlecruiser, cruiser, etc, variants.

You're welcome.

Yes, that's right. For all you asking for rogue drone faction spawns, they are in the game already. Please do a little research next time before making a suggestion. The issue is not with a lack of rogue drone faction spawns, the issue is with the loot they give: Components for integrated/augmented hammerheads. In other words, absolutely worthless trash.
