no, each upgrade has a fixed impact to the stats of the module.
This does not change if the upgrade was with or without GS
The upgrade with GS will increase your synergie income if you are playing with this thip
I’m sorry it does say you get an added bonus on top of the extra Synergy gain you get for using that ship. I didn’t think it gave you an extra added bonus on top of the synergy either until I checked. Please look below.
I purchased an extra (4th) “Shield Projection Splitter V” (I already own 1 mk4, & 2 mk2’s of this) mk1 so I could test it to make sure & “Shield Volume +5%” still came up above the synergy gain 3%.
I upgraded it with credits to Mark 2 shortly after to see if the bonus still shows up for a mark higher than just 2, & it did:
To make sure it wasn’t just this module alone that had added non-synergy bonuses to it I checked upgrading to mark 3 with Golden Standards on 2 other modules as well.
As far as I’m aware, all the modules in the game have an extra non-synergy bonus to them if you upgrade with the Golden Standards.
I tried mk3 modules upgrading to mark 4 to see if the bonus went away for that mark-upgrade either, it didn’t;
So from what I’ve gathered is that there is an extra bonus to upgrading your modules with the premium/Golden Standards money on the game, & out of the 2 times I tested the upgrade with the desired module I’ve been inquiring about (Because I might purchase premium money depending on the answer to this question as a whole) it said “Shield Volume +5%”. I would test it for mark 3 & mark 4 on Shield Projection Splitter V but I already own 3 modules (I don’t need any more 3 is all I need) and I don’t have the Jericho vouchers required to upgrade it regardless. So unless someone can correct me on this I believe that you could hypothetically upgrade the “Shield Projection Splitter V” module with Golden Standards 3 times for “Shield Volume +5%” each time from the non-synergy bonus.
So the question I’m asking is this:
If I upgrade the module 3 times with golden standards would the non-synergy added bonus amount to “+15% shield volume” or just “+5% shield volume”? Aka, would the bonus stack every time I can upgrade that module with the premium money or would it stay the same “+5% Shield Volume” regardless of how many times it’s upgraded?
Really interested in an answer (Preferably from somebody who has either done it themselves & knows, or an answer from a developer (Latter would be more preferred if possible because Devs have access to the game’s code & know for sure)).
