Hello everyone. In Kronos we will be adding a new set of low slot modules that increase warp speed by a flat amount. The blueprints to manufacture these modules will be found exclusively through low-sec exploration. As part of the the same experimental technological lineage as the Ascendancy Implants, they will be the second set of items to use the enigmatic Shattered Villard Wheels in their construction.

There will be three versions, with blueprints of increasing rarity.

  • The Limited Hyperspatial Accelerator increases warp speed by 0.2au/s
  • The Experimental Hyperspatial Accelerator increases warp speed by 0.25au/s
  • The Prototype Hyperspatial Accelerator increases warp speed by 0.3au/s


These modules are restricted to a maximum of 3 per ship, and require 1 PWG and 0 CPU. They require the skill Warp Drive Operation trained to at least level one.
They are not stacking penalized with each other or with any other warp speed modifiers.

Let us know what you think!

Super speedy interceptors! Now with, ludicrous speed!


Nah, would be fun though. I like the look of these modules. Would be good for the specialized industrials.

it seems like these would only be viable on a few ships as a single module in and of itself won't apply that great of an increase to be worth it. i can see these being exceptionally popular with transports though.

Why limited to 3 per ship, when they dont give realy much warp speed increase?

i'm REALY miss the old stuff.

Awesome! Battleship owners rejoice!!
1. What's happening with hyperspacial rigs? Is the stacking penalty still going forward in Kronos?
2. Just a suggestion: require Warp Drive Operation II for the "Experimental" and Warp Drive Operation III for the "Prototype".

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

Are these additons to warp speed made before rig/implant mulitpliers or after ?

My initial thought is that they don't do enough to be worth using. It would, for example, be worth doing it at 1 AU per unit on say a cruiser; then you're sacking three low slots for double warp speed... but three warp slots for a < 33% increase doesn't sound worth it to me.

Alternatively, perhaps they could be balanced with the inability to more than double a ship's speed in warp. That is, there is no cap to the number, but you reap no benefit from putting more than three on a cruiser anyway.

Good question (hopefully before).

Why not a percentage so they are useful for other ships than freighters?
E.g. interceptors, dictors, battleships. Basically all subcaps.

Yeah, you're probably not going to put them on your interceptor, but consider that freighters are now getting low slots instead of rigs, and that the base level warp speed of a freighter is 1.37 AU/S.

Won't be enough in terms of impact.

But still a good idea :)

You should've really made them a percetage though, its the magic way to fix all balances issues you could have. Flat amounts is dangerous because its either not enough or too much.
