To augment the Vorton Projector, a new weapon upgrade module is available. The Vorton Tuning System will give bonuses to both the firing rate and damage of Vorton Projectors.

  • Vorton Tuning System I
  • Compact Vorton Tuning System I
  • Vorton Tuning System II

Module Changes:

  • Merged Dark Blood Tracking Disruptor into ‘Investor’ Tracking Disruptor I
  • Performed Shield Resistance Amplifier Tiericide
  • Shield Resistance Amplifier Market Sub-Groups have been renamed as follows:
    • EM Resistance Amplifiers → EM Shield Amplifiers
    • Explosive Resistance Amplifiers → Explosive Shield Amplifiers
    • Kinetic Resistance Amplifiers → Kinetic Shield Amplifiers
    • Thermal Resistance Amplifiers → Thermal Shield Amplifiers
  • The parts of the names of the modules, that describe their role, have been changed for all Shield Resistance Amplifier modules and their blueprints:
    • EM Ward Amplifier → EM Shield Amplifier
    • Explosive Deflection Amplifier → Explosive Shield Amplifier
    • Kinetic Deflection Amplifier → Kinetic Shield Amplifier
    • Thermal Dissipation Amplifier → Thermal Shield Amplifier
  • The Shield Resistance Amplifier module group contained two sets of Basic modules: Basic and Supplemental.
  • These are collectors items that do not appear in game for some time. All have been merged and marked as special Storyline ‘Basic’ modules.
  • Basic module renamed:
    • Basic EM Ward Amplifier → ‘Basic’ EM Shield Amplifier
    • Basic Explosive Deflection Amplifier → ‘Basic’ Explosive Shield Amplifier
    • Basic Kinetic Deflection Amplifier → ‘Basic’ Kinetic Shield Amplifier
    • Basic Thermal Dissipation Amplifier → ‘Basic’ Thermal Shield Amplifier

    • Supplemental Explosive Deflection Amplifier converted to ‘Basic’ Explosive Shield Amplifier
    • Supplemental Kinetic Deflection Amplifier converted to ‘Basic’ Kinetic Shield Amplifier
    • Supplemental Thermal Dissipation Amplifier converted to ‘Basic’ Thermal Shield Amplifier

All market orders for the affected modules will be removed, the modules and escrow will be returned to the character who created the order. We will convert every module of one type into modules of another type, everywhere in the database. This includes modules currently fit to ships and modules in containers or contracts.

  • Upgraded modules have been renamed to Compact:
    • Upgraded EM Ward Amplifier I → Compact EM Shield Amplifier
    • Upgraded Explosive Deflection Amplifier I → Compact Explosive Shield Amplifier
