- The “Show Info” window for drones in your ship's drone bay now displays the correct attributes according to your skills.

This only applies strictly to skills ?
Because i get the same damage modifier with dominix, rattlesnake, paladin, nighthawk so hull bonuses doesn't count ?

I'm not so sure the hull bonuses are being applied.

I will check this by fitting a mining drone to an unbonused ship and then to a vexor and will report on the mining yield of each. Of course this would only show the mining yield bonus and not the combat drone bonus is or is not working. But if it is not working then I would suspect neither is.

EDIT
Ok so I used a Helios and a Vexor Navy Issue. I looked at show info for a single t2 mining drone. For each ship it showed mining amount = 25. That figure does not take into account my skills. It is the same figure as an unfitted drone. In the Helios which gest no mining drone bonus the drone mined 62m3 in one cycle. In the Vexor Navy Issue which receives a 10% per level bonus to yield the same drone mined 87 m3 in one cycle.

So it appears that while ship hull based bonuses are not shown they are applied. It also appears that for mining drones nothing has changed. I am not sure if we can predict the behavior of combat drones since the damage dealt is a dice roll. But if anyone can craft a test for it post it up I say. I'm game.

Hull bonuses are not applied.
That's why i asked if this change is strictly for skills.
But i think it should also apply for hull.

I wasn't clear. I didn't doubt that the hull bonus wasn't shown. I doubted if it was applied in the behind the scenes mechanics.

Yah - it's borked. This may be a conspiracy against drone users. If I'm not mistaken, this used to work.

The count of things that used to work but were broken during some patch cycle is growing without bound. Where is this headed? To the point where nothing will work? I am really sick of patches that break stuff. What sloppy garbage. I'm really fed up. Not with any one thing. But with the rampant and broad spectrum breakage every time a patch comes out. No other surviving game developer does this, not with such regularity anyway. And if they do, it's fixed honestly soon.
