Due to the delay involved in my corporate logistics moving things out to our nullsec area, I was looking at buying a spare Onyx and having it ready and fitted in case I got exploded.
This is a new module, I’m not sure when it came out, but according to patch notes on the 24th of January, it was broken until then.
With maximum skills (HIC to V), the tech I bubble generator gives a radius of 20km (base of 16 x 5% per HIC level = 25%) whereas the tech II bubble generator gives 24km radius. an extra 4km doesn’t seem like much, but remember, this is an extra 4km in every direction.
The difference between the two is shown best when we look at the volume covered: (V=4/3piR2)
T1 = 33510 km3
T2 = 57905 km3
Meaning that the T2 bubble is a bit more than 42% bigger than the T1
The only problem:
I was training for interceptors and light dictors… but I’ll have to wait a month. I also discovered that my shield compensation skills are all sitting at III except for EM. That must have been from when I stopped doing them in favor of armor tanked battleships back in the day….. Well, at least I don’t have to wonder what I should train for.
I’ll also have to update my HIC guide to mention it. If you’re a HIC specialist, it is definitely worth training.
