I should also probably mention that the War Report has not been finalized, it's missing a timeline and some better grouping probably. Also the UI for the Ally system has not been fully implemented.

Drone damage module - the main reason to add this was to have all the main weapon types have a corresponding damage amplifying module. Plus, it's not like drones are overwhelming anything at the moment, so giving them a bit of love is ok. It's a low slot module. I'm at home, and I can't remember the exact fitting requirements, will post them tomorrow (for this and other modules).

Adaptive Armor Hardener - there is only a tech I version at start, but it will not be seeded directly on market. You'll get BPCs as drops (we haven't nailed down where yet). It is entirely possible to add other tech and/or faction versions later.

War cost change - we've been making changes to this very recently, so it might not be on Sisi yet, but should be soon. As Punkturis said, we'll have more information in a devblog very soon.


wait wait wait wait wait

this has me concerned here, wasn't the whole reason for one of the recent patches to GET RID OF THE SOLO T1 ITEMS...

The idea was Meta items = drops, T1 = NPC Market with invention to T2....

Putting this into a T1 with NO T2, and to make it a drop seems... odd... if anything make a faction drop version, don't go just making a random t1 module a DROP, and not including a T2 variant that just seems nuts considering the way CCP has been going.

I'm all for new modules in fact i wish we'd get a slew of new modules to allow for creative evolving landscape of fits, but no T2 just seems odd, and making it a drop just means its going to be limited, and an odd twist on a T1 module.

Hmm... could we get some high slot damage drone modules? I'd like to be able to forgo my ship based guns in favor of pure drone DPS on my Domi ( don't even use them now, lol) (yes I know about the drone range augmentor, I use two, don't need any more range, just need stuff like DPS, durablity, and maybe speed)

can i go out on a limb here and ask if the Eve Mercenary Marketplace is essentially going to be what the DUST514 Merc Contract UI is going to be based on?

Since we're talking about Logis.. would it have a point to add a positive effects too like we have EWAR? So you can see incoming reps/transfers?

Just brainstorming..

like the idea, hate the idea of misclicking the icon to lock and shooting my own logi lol, especially since the icons sorta move as new effects add on, they'd have to be different, perhaps a smaller bar of icons above the negative effects icons but with green instead of red, or blue perhaps might be better looking

I've been trying and trying and trying

"guys but the logi pilots are really nice people and we should show them some love"
"NO." - is the answer I always get back

not really P we're aware of it and it's something we really want added sometime in the future

Perhaps a hue depending on association. Purple for fleet, blue for alliance etc.

I agree and making it a low slot item seems really odd. SoniClover, can you tell us your reasoning as to why the drone damage module should be a low slot item? As a side note, I've always wondered why the Drone Link Augmentor takes up a high-slot.

Well, honestly friendlies should be targetable from the watch list and if done that way show up in a completely different area of the screen to cut down on accidental friendly fire. In other words only boosting modules of the various types (including remote repair) can activate when those "target" icons are highlighted. This would also open up some interesting possbilities elsewhere.

Most likely because all damage mods are lowslots :S Gyro, Magstab, HeatSink, and now Drone Augmentor... though the questiona bout the drone link augmentor is a valid one lol

<3 Pre-Crucible the future sounded worrying. Now it sounds comfortably reassuring.

Thanks <3

I don't know too much about the new modules and I'm pretty sure I'm the only person from the team looking at this thread now (it's 8 at night) but I'm sure SoniClover will reply to you module guys sometime laterBig smile


OMG 8 p.m. and Goliath is still on Sisi updating it !?!?!? That's commitment!!
