So with the fix of the field generators now apparently diminishing returns effects everything to include all consoles, all equipment, AND skills. The effect is that if you equip one blue XI level 26% weapon console it actually only counts for about 11% (depending on your skills etc) the second 8% the third 6% (again based on skills / other dmg modifications) way to go with the continued problems.

Just tried this out on my character.

Confirmed that this is in fact not true.

Each console after the first gives me exactly the same amount of dmg increase as the last one.

Well first your wrong on that but second the issue at hand is that diminishing returns are being created by our build. IE when you fit a single Field Generator with no other +shield capacity equipment / modules instead of getting the stated 35% you get diminished 26% or weapons instead of getting the stated 26% you get 12% or resist instead of getting stated 35% you get 16.4%.

Weapon Before: http://i43.tinypic.com/2e5nofm.jpg
After: http://i39.tinypic.com/250p3f7.jpg
After 2 (just to show he was lying or really bad at math): http://i40.tinypic.com/25i0zgp.jpg

Gain of 12% Diminished from 26% (Second Console Gain of 10% because he said it didn't diminish)

Shield Before: http://i41.tinypic.com/2ps3y80.jpg
After: http://i43.tinypic.com/2nlw9b6.jpg

Gain of 26% Diminished from 35%

Plasma Resist Before: http://i41.tinypic.com/rwrpg9.jpg
After: http://i43.tinypic.com/f1ecm8.jpg

Gain of 17.4% Diminished from 35%
