Place this module on a structure and connect it to its appropriate computer to either enable that system or enhance an existing one.
Overdrive Effect Modules much like any other enhancer module are designed to increase the power and effectiveness of its associated system. As an effect system this module will have differing effects depending on whether or not the effect computer is connected to a weapon system.
Offensively: Increasing the module count ratio on an Overdrive enhanced weapon will increase the total damage output of a weapon. At 100% module count ratio your weapon system will deal twice as much damage. However with each additional module the power cost of the weapon increases dramatically. Only ships with a hefty power generation should mount this effect. The module count ratio can be seen in the Weapons menu.
Defensively:Increasing the mass-to-module ratio on a ship will increase the maximum achievable speed of it. At max efficiency (50%) a ship's maximum achievable speed will have increased by 1.5 times.
