    Description
    The new Guardian Power Distributor module states 'Also boosts overall power output of any power plant it is hooked into'. It doesn't. A relog did not change the power plant output.

    Steps to Reproduce
    Note your power plant output. Buy Guardian Power Distributor (in test of same class as the one it replaced) and recheck power plant output.

    Also tested with 8A Guardian Power Plant, again no boost to power output.

    Was planning to downgrade my power plant one class because of this new Guardian distributor, but it did not improve the power output of my power plant in the slightest.

    None of this NEW Guardian tech is worth the grind needed to purchase them. NONE At all. Stupid way to implement this and the FSD booster.

    I sense:

    "Hey Cmdrs,

    Thanks for raising this - we are currently investigating this issue as a top priority!

    Apologies for any frustration caused!

    I don't think Guardian Power Distributor would increase Power Plant output capacity. It'll just increase charge capacity in the power distributor.

    So then its description should not say it does, right? That's what this report here is all about. It either should but it doesn't or shouldn't and it shouldn't say it does.

    Do you see?

    It's broken, please fix it.

    This is quite maddening actually, shard cannons are barely worth it, FSD booster have been pulled just as i was going back from the guardian site, and distro is literally useless, even with the supposed power boost. Have anybody tested this? I can guess no, since players found all the bugs inside half an hour.

    Module is broken and needs to be fixed. And maybe you'd want to at least check if it does what it's supposed to do before rolling out an update for a change

    That's what happens when you don't test the module....

    It seem the power plant capacity does work but there is an issue with the readings. In outfitting the readings don't change, but in the right side control panel of your ship under modules it shows the power going over 100%.

    Installing a class 6 Guardian distributor on my iCutter gave me 104% power.
    Installing a class 1 Guardian distributor on my iCutter gave me 110% power.

    I've not test if we actually get the extra power, only that the readings change under control panel modules.
