General Hullmods
The hullmods from the mod that cant be packed in to a single category.
The mod currently has two of them and they each have a unique effect.

General Hullmods Preview


System Overload
A hullmod that allows you to use a ships system even when it has no charges remaining.
It comes at the cost of damaging the ship on each use of this ability. The damage varies with the ships system.

Terminus
If Terminus is installed on a ship, a hit to the ship that would usually destroy it will now instead increase the timeflow and disable all damage caused to the ship.
This effect is active for 15 seconds, afterwards the timeflow returns to normal, the ship can take damage again and it reduces the ships peak performance time to 0.
The timer can be seen in the bottom left side in the status report.

Secondary Systems
Those Hullmods install a second Shipsystem in to hull. Some of them have unique effects, some replicate effects from Primary Systems already in the game.
Secondary Systems can be used at the same time as the ships primary systems. The AI is also capable of using a system when it requires it.

Secondary Systems Preview


More about Secondary Systems
The secondary systems can all be enable with the "H" key. You can check the hullmod description to see all of their stats and an expanded description.
The hotkey can be configured in the settings file in "data/config/modSettings.json"

Flux Void
On activation it will rapidly vent away the flux stored on a ship during its activation period.
Without the "Shield Modulation" Elite skill it wont Vent Hardflux while your Shields are up.

Mind Control
Lets you take over a single frigate or destroyer and make it fight for your faction. After the activation period of the ability runs out it returns to its original faction.

Vampirism
Leaches the health of all allies within its Radius. All drained health is added to a pool that is used to heal the hitpoints of the user after its activation ends.

(https://imgur.com/5tGfRAW.gif)


Singularity
Accelerates the ships timeflow during its activation. Its the secondary-system equivelant of the "Temporal Shell" shipsystem.
However, it only accelerates the timeflow by a factor of 2, unlike Temporal Shells 3x multiplier.

Antimatter Drive
Briefly increases the ships max speed, turn speed and acceleration in both. Its the secondary-system equivelant of the "Plasma Jet" shipsystem.

System Substitute
A series of hullmods that improves multiple stats, but in turn disable the main shipsystem of the ship it is installed on.
You cant add more than 1 of those on to a ship at the same time.

On the topic of extra shipsystems, why not leverage the existing utility mod by TomatoPaste?

https://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=22274.0

this looks exactly what you wanted to achieve with the secondary system hullmods, but with a massively improved UI

I did try using his framework for it but decided against it for a few reasons. Mostly because i wasnt sure if the mod would be getting future updates as the author seems to have gotten a lot less active, and in case a future update would have broken it, i did not want to to wait for them to port their mod over. The UI definitly does suffer in exchange, but im thinking of improving on that front over time.

Edit: I went and checked out the MagicUI function of MagicLib and managed to improve the UI issues the mod has. Should be part of the next update to the mod.

Released a small patch that improves a few things here and there.
It specificly should make Vampirism a lot less Situational and have some benefit in most fights.

Flux Void is pretty much an emergency tool that can get you out of a lot of bad situations, so i feel like giving it more charges might be a bit much.
