Patch Notes For 2023-05-04.1

Features & Changes:

Factional Warfare:

Thanks to the efforts of loyalist Capsuleers, the Caldari State has completed construction of the first Interstellar Shipcaster!

  • The State Interstellar Shipcaster is located in the Caldari FW HQ system of Onnamon, near planet 3.

  • To enable the activation of the shipcaster, a new State Stellar Transmuter has been brought online in the nearby Elonaya system.

  • The Caldari State will begin automatically placing State Shipcaster Beacon Constructors in warzone systems to enable the construction of State Shipcaster Beacons.

    • To construct the Shipcaster Beacons in the target systems, Capsuleers can deposit Nanotransistors, Smartfab Units, Quantum Microprocessors, and Self-Harmonizing Power Cores to the Beacon Constructors. Capsuleers who deposit construction resources will be rewarded with loyalty points.

    • The Shipcaster Beacon Constructors and completed State Shipcaster Beacons are both vulnerable to attack by Capsuleers. The completed Shipcaster Beacons have a one hour reinforcement period before they can be completely destroyed to allow time for allied capsuleers to respond in defense.

  • When at least one Shipcaster Beacon is connected to the Shipcaster, it will become possible for Capsuleers enlisted with the Caldari to jump through the shipcaster.

  • The Factional Warfare map has been updated to show empire Shipcaster locations, shipcaster beacons and their current progress.

Events:

  • As they have completed their Shipcaster construction project, the Caldari state has stopped sharing sensor data that allowed the Vila Allopoiesis Nexus and Nesosilicate Rakovene Field sites in Pochven to be detected by Capsuleer scanners. Once other empires have reached the point where they can begin their shipcaster construction projects, they will activate their own scanners and the sites will return to Capsuleer scanners.

  • Added faction names to the beginning of Capsuleer Day XX seasonal challenges on the Info Panel.

  • Added a new crate - the Historic Capsuleer Day Clothing Crate - to drops from event sites. These crates contains past Capsuleer Day clothing rewards.

Structures & Deployables:

  • Reduced the maximum broker fee tax a Upwell Citadel can charge from 50% down to 11.5%. All citadels that already had a broker fee tax rate set higher than this have automatically had their broker fee tax lowered to 11.5%. The goal of this change is to address broker fee related scams which were too obfuscated.

Defect Fixes:

Graphics:

  • Reduced flickering in hangars with both anti-aliasing and depth of field enabled.

User Interface:

  • Capsuleer Day XX Cerebral Accelerators now appear in the correct Market category.

Patch Notes For 2023-05-03.1

Major progress in the construction is now visible at the construction sites in both Onnamon and Elonaya.

Patch Notes For 2023-05-02.2

Patch Notes For 2023-05-02.1

Features & Changes:

Events:

The Capsuleer Day XX event has begun! Join us in celebrating EVE Online's 20th anniversary from today until downtime on May 30th with a special login and seasonal campaign.

  • The Guristas and Angel Cartel have teamed up as the Guri Malakim and appear to be focused on obtaining and acquiring ancient Jovian technology. The mysterious Society of Conscious Thought are opposing them in an effort to prevent ancient technology from falling into the hands of criminal organizations.

    • Capsuleers can choose to assist either the Society of Conscious Thought or the Guri Malakim in this event to earn extra rewards through The Agency reward track.

    • Guri Malakim Survey Expedition and SoCT Survey Outpost hacking sites can be found all throughout High-security space using scanning probes. A Data Analyzer module will need to be fitted to access the valuable treasures housed within.

    • More daring capsuleers can find the Guri Malakim Raiding Expeditions and SoCT Retrievals Repository hacking sites in Low-security space, Nullsec, Pochven and Wormhole space for a tougher hacking challenge and higher rewards.

    • Guri Malakim Survey Base and SoCT Survey Expeditions combat sites are appearing all over high-security space. These sites can be found using your built-in anomaly scanner. The acceleration gates used to enter these sites will only allow access to ships of Battlecruiser size or lower, so it's recommended to bring Combat Battlecruisers to defeat the hostiles inside. Faction Cruisers, Heavy Assault Cruisers, Strategic Cruisers, and Command Ships are also excellent options when available.

    • Guri Malakim Raider Base and SoCT Retrieval Expeditions can be found in Low-security space, Nullsec,  Pochven and Wormhole space. These more difficult combat sites are home to bigger rewards, but a much greater challenge! A very well fitted Command Ship or Tech 3 Cruiser is recommend for these sites, or inviting your friends to the raiding party.

    • Players who choose to raid Guri Malakim sites can find valuable Smuggler Lockboxes which can be sold to the Empires in NPC stations for rewards, Guri Malakim Boosters, Agency Boosters, SKINs and more, while the SoCT sites contain personal overseer effects, SoCT Boosters and more of the above.

  • Until 30 May a special set of Capsuleer Day login rewards will be available for players who log on. Rewards include new SKINs, up to 510k skillpoints, limited time combat boosters, a set of Society of Conscious Thought starship hulls: the Apotheosis Shuttle, Sunesis Destroyer, Gnosis Battlecruiser, Praxis Battleship and the brand-new exploration frigate the Metamorphosis!

  • The loot drop rate for all player ships and POS's has been increased from 50% to 75%.

Make sure you're Omega on 6 May and etch your legacy on the EVE Monument!

The Society of Conscious Thought have introduced a new exploration frigate to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the capsuleer age.

Universe:

  • The Caldari Navy has completed major construction on their new station in the Caldari Factional Warfare headquarters system of Onnamon.

Patch Notes For 2023-04-27.1

Defect Fixes:

Gameplay:

  • Vila Skarbnik NPCs in the Shadow War Pochven sites should no longer rarely give standing hits to the Triglavian collective.


Patch Notes For 2023-04-26.1

Features & Changes:

Events:

The Caldari State has completed the research phase of their shadow war effort, and can now begin work on the construction of an Interstellar Shipcaster.

  • Mutadaptive Construction Components have been identified as essential materials needed for the construction of an Interstellar Shipcaster. Blueprints for these components are often stored by Triglavian-controlled rogue drones in Vila Allopoiesis Nexus', which can be found throughout Pochven using onboard anomaly scanners. Capsuleers can attempt to access the nodes the rogue drones use as temporary stockpiles with Data Analyzer modules.

  • Nesosilicate Rakovene ore can be mined in Nesosilicate Rakovene Fields found throughout Pochven and refined for quantities of Neo-Jadarite minerals, which are fundamental to the construction of Mutadaptive Components, small amounts of Neo-Jadarite can also be retrieved from Vila Allopoiesis Nodes.

  • Capsuleers should be prepared - Vila Skarbnik drones patrol both sites and will attack interlopers, and both sites will broadcast their locations to all ships in the solar system through the overview when a capsuleer warps to the site.

  • The Caldari State will reward players who bring Mutadaptive Construction Components to their component deposit yards located in the State Shipcaster Construction Site in Onnamon, and the State Stellar Construction Site in Elonaya.

The Gallente Federations Shadow War research effort is advancing and the federation has reached a major breakthrough in its understanding and mastery of the Stellar Transmuter technology thanks to the efforts of loyalist capsuleers.

  • As a result, Gallente Data Sites, Laboratories, and Classified Couriers are now active in lowsec systems controlled by the Gallente Federation in factional warfare, as well as the highsec systems in the Kiartanne and Viriette constellations. These sites will contain stellar transmuter datacore blueprints and materials.

  • Players who choose to side with the Caldari for their shadow war effort will now earn progression points for entering and completing the Gallente sites.

Graphics:
