Ship equipment needs both CPU and powergrid capacity.

If you don’t have enough, you can still add modules to your ship but you cannot put them online. There is nearly no point to doing this, since you cannot benefit from offline equipment. It is possible, however, to still fly a ship with offline modules.


THE CPU Edit

The CPU describes the calculating and controlling capacity of the central computer on the ship, in theory anyway. You can increase it as follows:

PAGES OF INTREST
Type Name Effect
50 64 13
skill Electronics 5% Bonus to ship CPU output per skill level
12 64 7
Module Co-Processor I increases CPU Output
40 64 16
Implant Hardwiring - Zainou ‘Gypsy’ KMB series Neural interface upgrades that boost the pilot’s skill at electronics

If you are out of options, try to lower the CPU need of your modules. You can use modules with a higher Meta level (with the exception of Tech II modules), or try using one (or more) of the methods listed on the following table:

Type Name Effect
50 64 13
Skill Electronics Upgrades Skill at installing Electronics upgrades, e.g. signal amplifier, co-processors and backup sensor arrays. 5% reduction of sensor upgrade CPU needs per skill level
Skill Energy Grid Upgrades Skill at installing power upgrades e.g. capacitor battery and power diagnostic units. 5% reduction in CPU needs of modules requiring Energy Grid Upgrades per skill level
Skill Weapon Upgrades 5% reduction per skill level in the CPU needs of weapon turrets, launchers and smartbombs
Skill Mining Upgrades 5% reduction per skill level in CPU penalty of mining upgrade modules
40 64 16
Implant Hardwiring – Zainou ‘Gnome’ KZA series Neural interface upgrades that lower turret CPU needs by 1-5%
Implant Hardwiring – Zainou ‘Gnome’ KTA series Neural interface upgrades that lower launcher CPU needs by 1, 3 or 5%
Implant Hardwiring – Inherent Implants ‘Highwall’ HY series 1-5% reduction in CPU penalty of mining upgrade modules
68 64 11
Rig Powergrid Subroutine Maximizer This ship modification is designed to reduce a ship’s CPU need for all power upgrade modules

THE POWERGRID Edit

Powergrid is the capacity of the electronic systems of the ship (something like the circuit-breaker in your building). It determines how many things that are plugged into the ship can ‘run’. You can increase it as follows:

Type Name Effect
50 64 13
Skill Engineering 5% Bonus to ship’s powergrid output per skill level
image Module Power Diagnostic System Monitors and optimizes the powergrid. Gives a slight boost to power core output and a minor increase in shield and capacitor recharge rate
Module Reactor Control Unit Boosts power core output
image Module Micro Auxiliary Power Core Supplements the main power core providing more power
Image Implant Hardwiring – Inherent Implants ‘Squire’ PG series A neural interface upgrade that boosts the pilot’s skill at engineering
Image Rig Ancillary Current Router This ship modification is designed to increase a ship’s powergrid capacity
