Patch Notes For December 2018 Release

Released on Tuesday, December 11th 2018

Features & Changes:

Abyssal Deadspace:

Abyssal Jump mechanics have been significantly changed to allow for invulnerability while using Triglavian gates. - This affects inter-abyssal travel during the PvE sequence, inter-abyssal travel from PvE to PvP, and abyssal-to-origin jump to known space. - While previous mechanics were by design, after listening to player feedback we have spent time reworking this travel system to allow for this invulnerability.

Blueprints for the Rodvia and Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairers can now be found in Abyssal Deadspace

Graphics:

  • Auroras will now appear on the poles of planets with atmosphere and magnetic fields. Auroras are not regularly scheduled, but occur according to preset conditions over time.
  • The Etana Special Edition Tournament prize ship now has hull geometry and animation distinct from the other Caldari Osprey class hulls.

Market:

  • Changed the Stasis Webifier Drones' Market Group from Combat Utility Drones to Electronic Warfare Drones.

Modules:

Added Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairers in the following variations: - Heavy Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairer I - Heavy Mutadaptive Compact Remote Armor Repairer - Heavy Mutadaptive Scoped Remote Armor Repairer - Heavy Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairer II - Perun Heavy Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairer

Mutadaptive Remote Armor Repairers have the following rules: - Limited to one per ship - May only be fit to Rodiva and Zarmazd (for now) - Increase remote repair amount by 10% for each additional active cycle on the same target - Increase remote repair amount caps at 150% added

Miscellaneous:

  • A new celestial group in the overview tab presets types filter has been added called "Future Home of Cyno Fields". In our Februrary 2019 release we plan to move standard Cynosural Fields to this group so that players can filter them separately from other beacons. We are adding the empty group early so that players can choose to add this group to their saved overviews and/or overview packs to prepare for the February change.
  • The 13 Days of EVE begin on release day; Log in and claim your rewards!

Structures & Deployables:

  • Corporations may now select whether they wish to automatically accept or decline structure transfers. This setting defaults to "decline" and can be changed by the corporation's CEO and directors with immediate effect.
  • The blueprints for the old starbase Jump Bridges, Cynosural System Jammers, and Cynosural Generator Arrays may no longer be used to start new industry jobs.

Starting tutorial and the Seeker Investigation:

  • Updated the Aura conversation windows that appear during the tutorial to include icons and more clearly indicate instructions relating to them.
  • Removed the completion count for the Seeker investigation card in the Agency.
  • Improved flow of the teachings around navigating to Career Agents in the Seeker Investigation.
  • Improved skill rewards designed to give characters levels in core skills.
  • Simplified the introduction to skill training in the Fortress in the Rocks section of the Seeker Investigation.
  • UI Highlight for the wreck has been added to the Approach the Wreck task.
  • The UI hihglighting of the undock button in the Agency during the Seekers Investigation has been removed to help new players focus on the Station Services undock button.

War Declarations:

Corporations and alliances that control at least one structure in space are now considered war eligible. All corporations and alliances without any structures in space are no longer war eligible. - If any corporation within an alliance controls a structure, the entire alliance becomes war eligible - Valid structure types for war eligibility are Upwell Structures, Starbase Control Towers, Customs Offices, and Sovereignty Structures - The location of the structure in space does not matter for war eligibility

Corporations and alliances must now be war eligible in order to declare wars, have wars declared against them, and join wars as allies. - If either the attacking or defending side of an active war lose their last structure in space, the war will enter a 24 hour cooldown and then end. - If either the attacking or defending side of a war that is still within its 24 hour warmup period (before fighting starts) lose their last structure in space, the war will enter its 24 hour cooldown as soon as fighting begins. This will lead to a war that allows legal combat for 24 hours. - Mutual wars will continue even if one or both sides lose their structures
