Seems like Omnidirectional Tracking Links only give boosts to Sentry's wile they are in the drone bay. Once I launch them, they no longer have the Optimal Range & Tracking boosts. Any insight?

Sounds like a bug. Report it via... wherever that is done.

Omnis work just fine, or I have been imagining my gardes popping things at 50km for quite some time.

Odd that it isn't displayed, though.

Do you have an SDA or two on the relevant boat? Because the damage mod drops the same way. Deployed drones don't have accurate show info stats.

I can't recall where, but I remember CCP stating that the show info would only display the correct stats with skills and mods taken into account while the drones were in the drone bay. With 2 T2 omni's I've been hitting to 60km decently. If the performance seems of, bug report. If it just the show info, known issue I believe.

As has been mentioned, this is a display issue rather than a performance issue.

Drones when launched display base stats, not influenced by Omnidirectional tracking links, but their performance will reflect your omnidirectional links.

I don't know if it's working as intended, but I do like it this way - it would be really annoying if someone could just rightclick info on your drone and figure out what your fit was.

True but it gets really annoying when you want to know your optimal with a sentry.

It would be nice if you could click on a sentry and it's range be displayed as a separate bubble on the Tactical Overview. A bit like when you hover over a bomb launcher and it shows you the bomb bubble.

Drones displaying stats in space has always been borked. The bonuses are being given, you just can't see them in the info window.
