EVE Online: Stacking Penalty Guide

All that you ever wanted to know about stacking penalties, but never dared to ask.

As you might have noticed, some modules will say ‘Penalty: Using more than one type of this module or similar modules that affect the same attribute on the ship will be penalized’. You’ll see this on several modules, from sensor boosters to tracking computers and from inertia stabilizers to armor hardeners. What does that sentence mean? It means that for every module you add above the first, the effect on the attribute is diminished. A second sensor booster won’t add the same bonus as the first. For some time people have been looking to find out exactly how the stacking penalty works. There always has been a deviation from the values you find in the game. That is, until now. I was able to derive the stacking penalty formula that fits ‘exactly’.
