Post Advanced Fighter Subskill not affecting slaves fighters
I noticed the fix to fighter controller skill last patch, so that slaves now get the correct 50% bonus from that skill, instead of the full 100%.

But it appears something else broke with a completely different skill, the Advanced Fighter Subskill, since it should be giving its full bonus to slaves, but currently neither the +2 fighter slot bonus is affecting slaves, nor is the evasion ability affecting fighters launched from slaves. <--- this second ability, slave fighters no longer getting evasion is quite problematic to the overall fighter revamp concept, as fighters go down like paper without it.

I was under the impression these advanced skills were suppose to affect slaves at 100%, since this particular one has done so since the introduction of such skills, and conceptually it makes sense.

BTW upon further research I think I know how this broke, and it should be very easy to fix.

The 4.19 patch corrected the primary FC skill "Flight Controller" so that it only affects slaves 50%, like it should. But perhaps because of the naming similarity, the advanced skill called "Advanced Flight Controller" might have also got changed to 50% too. But i recall one of the devs a long time ago mentioning that certain skills like those with only 1 max level (such as the advanced skills), either affect at 100% or nothing at all, so changing it to 50% broke it since it meant it effectively gave zero bonus now to slaves.

Looks like all that needs to be done is to change "Advanced Flight Controller" back to 100% like it was, but leave the primary skill "Flight Controller" the same.
