Supported but the only drawback I see here is a hull hp reduction and the fact that its slots that most people would put more tank/dps on. This would definitly need a bigger penalty though like the bandwidth one requiring a lot of cpu or powergrid.

Yes. If megas can lose some of their tank for more gank, why can't I do the same thing with my domi?

I would like to see the fitting between the different sizes balanced in such a way that fitting the med version on a frig or fitting the large on a cruiser or BC would be possible but with extreme downsides, making such a tactic very risky but use full under the right circumstances

This would sound reasonable suggestion but this obviously opens doors for myrmidon mk II and ishkur of pwnage et cetera. Drones should be balanced as weapon system before adding stuff like this, or maybe at same time. Not before.

Some extra drones might not seem a problem when you are afk shooting npc's in hi sec but when you take ship into pvp even one extra drone might be very annoying.

Also currently there's no "drone specialists" everyone is drone specialist. They have to be. Even in "non-drone" ship your drones do remarkable amount of dps.

in the early stages of your character(or any character you have) did you do every level 1 mission of your faction in an imicus by yourself?

did you train all rank 1 drone skills up to 5 before any others?

where you using t2 med drones before you had a bc?

its the choices you make with your skills and the primary tactics you use that define your character

as for Omber Zombies comment, I think that they could be both modules and rigs, but making them % based would reduce there functionality and actually make them out of balance, can you see the hull expansion as % based when used on a ship like the domi?
it would be to over powered in that situation, but then would be of no use on a frig and little use on most cruisers

balance with regard to quantity of drones needs to be set values rather then % based

I like more drone upgrades, but not being able to add more bandwidth module, would make every BS a domi with better guns.

Would be nice to have something to increase drone bandwidth, perhaps a drone rig that increases bandwidth by 25 bandwidth, but have an associated drawback. I support the high slot module too.

very interesting ideas :-)
maybe for strategical reasons, some of this might be introduced rather as rigs than modules. but right now 3 drone upgrades... seem a bit poor to me, as well...

I can see the drone bay hull upgrade as a rig working quite well, but if the bandwidth was as a rig, how would it be balanced? applying the standard -10% cpu would be overpowered.

Fielding more drones, from a balance view point, is like equipping more turrets or missile launchers. This is why the bandwidth module would be a high slot and use a decent amount of cpu and power grid.

so how then would you balance that as a rig?

I think it would bring alot of issues out of balance. If it only will be able to be fitted on droneboats i would say supported, else not
