Something with the same fitting arrangement as the Drone Link Augmentor I but a damage multiplier for drones.

I don't always drink soft drinks but when I do it's Quafe Ultra Special edition.
And I may be Minmitar but I fly Gallente and I would gladly replace all my useless hybrids with something shiny like this.

Congratulations, you would be massively buffing carriers and supercarriers unbalencing the game.

For your consolation prize you also suggest kiling the server in PVP with a massive increase in drone usage, the scripting behind their deployment causing massive server load.

Both of These.

I'm not personally against damage mods for drones as someone with three toons that all have maxed damage on drones, but they should most certainly not occupy high slots. Low slot/rig damage mods seem the most plausible as they would force people to chose between tank and gank. There are very good reasons the only damage mods for drones are specific to sentries in rig slots with high calibration.

No, they would not unbalance carriers (assuming they even work for Fighters/FBs, which they should not). This is because Carriers already have a top-notch high slot for damage augmentation: the DCU. But then again, this mod should not work for Carriers.

if your going to take away a slot take away a mid slot. but I still don't like this. Drones are OP as is. A gun the size of a drone should do more damage then a drone with smaller guns on it.

I was thinking for BC sized ships and lower. Perhaps even cruiser and lower.

I think the OP is referring to Sub-capital type drones. Small, Medium, Large, Sentry.

TL;DR Drones != fighters.

EDIT: Oh and for your second point. Having actually done pew pew in space, I can testify that everyone uses drones ... so how would a drone mod increase server load?
As far as I can tell, anyone can use at most 5 drones. (I am not talking about fighters or fighter bombers). Please stop crying that the sky is falling. ugh

How is this over powered?
Do explain?

At best you can get about 450 dps out of heavy drones or around 500 dps if you use sentries at a long range. For this you sacrifice tank. Or if I am not gallent I can just fit a BS to do 800+ damage and completely dominate what that sniping drone boat can do.

Did I miss anything there?

I would support having this, make it so you can add a few to the ship, say 1-2 and get your drone dps on heavies / sentries up to around 600 dps and on par with a real battle ship.

Instead of this, just enable subcap droneboats to use drone control units. They still can't use fighters or fighter bombers, that should be where the gimp ends. High slots that's taken can't be used for gun, it's enough of a tradeoff for balance.

A gank fit rail domi currently give 1k dps, 450 from drones, 550 from railguns. Let them use drone control units, and it would be 900 dps, but all from drones.

This recommendation was for smaller ships in regards to small medium drones. Personally looking for something like this for frigates.

Sounds like a good idea, as long as the bonus doesnt apply to fighterbombers (and maybe fighters)

Flight of heavies, 5x 350mm rail IIs, 3 faction magstabs, 4 slot armor tank, cap booster, omnis and tcs filling mid slots. A powergrid rig or implant may be needed. It's not the easiest fit to use, with cap booster and no drone links, but that can be said of most gankfits.

You can further increase dps with sentry dmg rig and hybrid implants, or fit for shield gank (5-6 mids, shield is viable for domi). Goes up to around 1.3k dps? Don't remember. Haven't checked recently.
