pls tell me if im doing anything wrong...


having in the same fleet :
- one thanatos with a capital shield booster
- one tengu with shield warfare link - active shielding ( "Increases the speed of the fleet's shield boosters and decreases the duration of shield transporters" )
With the current skills, the warfare link offers a boost of 26.25%
When active, the duration of the shield boster on the thanatos does not change at all ( stays at 10s ), while on the same ship, the duration of a shield transporter goes from 5s to 3.69s.

is this a bug, or am i doing anything wrong ?

I'm getting the impression you're running under the assumption that I am which is if it can be fitted it can work. I'm also not sure on this and would actually like clarification.

yes, you can fit a capital shield booster on a thanatos.

To avoid all the -doing-it-wrong- comments you could have at least said you were using a Chimera!

There are a number of things that don't effect capital modules for example, the Crystal implant set; although I can't see a reason for the gang bonus not affecting the capital shield booster.

Remember that lone capitals in w-space are big juicy targets; Why not ensure that you have two or three capitals and use the 5 mids for resistances, then rely on the others for remote shield transfer.

I wish we had a chimera :) or at least a nidoggur
we bought this wh with 3 carriers in it and all of them thanatos/archon ( why would anyone build armor tanking adaptable capitals inside a wh with shield bonus anomaly is a mistery to me but this is what we have now ). Usually, when something does not apply to capital modules, it is specified in the info page, but not here. As for remote shield transfer, this was my first option, but, since shield booster performs alot better than remote shield transfer ( 7.5k/10 seconds vs.1.5k/5 seconds; with boost amplifiers it can get to 12.8k/10 seconds, which is way over what i could get from a similar armor tanking fit ), i preferred to relay on remote cap transfer to support running the shield boosters. Not having the fleet bonus for capital shield booster is a setback but not a very big one - its just intriguing.

…to the point where it's usually safer to assume that something won't affect capital modules unless specifically stated to do so.

It doesn't "work" in EFT either which is usually a good indication.....

Couldnt say yea or nea, but why dont you shoot your own carrier down to say 90% or 95%, use the actual values for show info on the shields and cycle the booster once? That will give you an exact figure to work off, then do it again with the fleet booster enabled?

Actually i wouldnt mind hearing the results(not in a WH atm, and really CBA putting one in on the test server lol)

One thing, make sure the tengu pilot has enough fleet/wing skills for the position he is in and/or the number of squads/wings below him. If he exceeds his maximum controllable squads/wings as per his skill, no bonus will be given at all.

Also, make sure the thanny's squad leader is in system and such like.

EDIT : Oh, if eft doesnt give bonus id go with that. Just go with the shield harmonizing link, that seems to work.
