This prevented remotely accepting a courier contract between two Upwell structures, but it also caused problems when trying to loot everything from a container, which included at least two contraband items.

Patch notes for Arms Race release 1.0
Released on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Features & Changes

Clone States:

  • Greatly expanded the Alpha Skill Set. Over 20 million total skill points available, including:
    • Battlecruisers
    • Battleships
    • Tech II small and medium weapons
    • Cross training to all factions available
  • Full list of added skills available in this dev blog
  • Free skill training now ends when Alphas reach 5 million total skill points
    • This included skill points in your unallocated pool

    • Immediately injects 50,000 skill points into unallocated pool
    • May only be used by Alphas
    • May only be used once per day, per character
    • Can be purchased from the NES, directly from secure.eveonline.com, and can be traded on the in-game market

Gameplay:

  • If a character's medical clone is set to a structure/station where he is unable to access the clone bay (due to permissions or clone service being offline) then when that medical clone is activated he will now awaken in his School Headquarters, instead of his current corporation's HQ station.
  • Corporate Saved Locations can no longer be dragged between folders if the pilot does not have the Communications Officer role.
  • Following on from the reductions in isotope volume and moon material volume released in Lifeblood last month, several changes have been made with the intention of increasing the economic friction associated with capital ship deployments and jump freighter hauling, stimulating the ice product markets, improving the balance of ice product consumption, facilitating the easier trade of high value reacted intermediate materials for T2 production and somewhat reducing the pain that can be caused by heavy jump drive usage and high stacked jump fatigue values. The changes are as follows:
    • Jump Drives:
      • +56% fuel use by Black Ops Battleships
      • +100% fuel use by other ship-based jump drives
      • Reduction of the maximum jump fatigue cap by 20%
      • Further reduction in isotope volume by 40% (to 0.03m3)
      • +20% increase in jump freighter fuel bay volumes
    • Fuel Blocks
      • Doubling the amount of liquid ozone required to build all four block types (from 167 to 350 per batch)
      • Small tweaks to the heavy water and isotope consumption as well primarily to round off the numbers and make math easier for people (167 -> 170 water and 444 -> 450 isotopes)
      • 80% reduction in the volume of all non-alchemy T2 intermediate materials (everything other than the “unrefined” stuff)
      • T2 intermediate materials
    • T2 intermediate materials
      • 80% reduction in the volume of all non-alchemy T2 intermediate materials (everything other than the “unrefined” stuff)

Graphics:

  • We have renovated 23 assets commonly found within missions to bring their visual quality up to our high standards. (V5++)
  • We have removed the missile showinfo 3D preview.
  • Removed unique missile geometry of each missile type and replaced it with a single geometry asset that gets scaled. (Improves client memory consumption.)
  • Planet icons will no longer render in real-time, they have been replaced with static images.
  • Upgraded Freetype SDK to version 2.6.0 (Font middleware)
  • Warp Disruption Bubbles have been updated with increased rendering fidelity, fewer texture artifact errors, reduced whiteout (overdraw), and improved performance in heavily-bubbled environments like fleet fights and camps.

Missions & NPCs:

  • Added the Arms Race and Yoiul Festival events, starting on the 5th of Dec and the 19th of Dec respectively.
  • The DED are continuing to report on increased Blood Raider and Guristas pirate activity. Capsuleers are advised to take necessary precautions.

User Interface:

  • Changed how the Notify message appears in client. We have added a subtle entry animation and bumped up the opacity of the background a bit. We hope this will make the message a little more obvious when it occurs.

  • You can now right-click bookmark icons saved at the solar system level
  • The probe and d-scan windows should now open when undocking if you docked with them open

The act of mining moon materials from moons has been changed. Read the overview devblog.

  • Moon mining is now exclusive to a new line of Upwell Structures: Refineries.
  • Moon Mining extractions are configured and started through the Extraction Scheduler which is available when a Moon Drill I Service Module is onlined in a Refinery. Extractions can be configured and started by any person who has access to Take Control of the structure. However, only those pilots with access to control the structure, and the Station Manager role with the corporation that owns the structure, are able to cancel an extraction.
  • The distribution of mineable materials across all moons in low-sec and null-sec space (with a few exemptions for the very large moons which cannot be mined) has been reseeded using the seed nominated by the Community and voted for by EVE Vegas 2017 attendees. Further details about the changes in composition of moons and their distribution can be found in this devblog
Seventy-five new ore types have been added for moon mining (click to expand details).
  • Three variants of Zeolites, which is a major source of Atmostpheric Gases
  • Three variants of Sylvite, which is a major source of Evaporite Deposits
  • Three variants of Bitumens, which is a major source of Hydrocarbons
  • Three variants of Coesite, which is a major source of Silicates
  • Three variants of Cobaltite, which is a major source of Cobalt
  • Three variants of Euxenite, which is a major source of Scandium
  • Three variants of Titanite, which is a major source of Titanium
  • Three variants of Scheelite, which is a major source of Tungsten
  • Three variants of Otavite, which is a major source of Cadmium
  • Three variants of Sperrylite, which is a major source of Platinum
  • Three variants of Vanadinite, which is a major source of Vanadium
  • Three variants of Chromite, which is a major source of Chromium
  • Three variants of Carnotite, which is a major source of Technetium
  • Three variants of Zircon, which is a major source of Hafnium
  • Three variants of Pollucite, which is a major source of Caesium
  • Three variants of Cinnabar, which is a major source of Mercury
  • Three variants of Xenotime, which is a major source of Dysprosium
  • Three variants of Monazite, which is a major source of Neodymium
  • Three variants of Loparite, which is a major source of Promethium
  • Three variants of Ytterbite, which is a major source of Thulium
  • One new higher quality variant for each of: Veldspar, Scordiate, Pyroxeres, Plagioclase, Omber, Kernite, Jaspet, Hemorphite, Hedbergite, Gneiss, Dark Ochre, Spodumain, Crokite, Bistot, and Arkonor
Ten new mining crystals have been added, a T1 and T2 version for each of the new rarity groups used by moon material ore. Each crystal provides bonuses to the mining or all the ores within its target rarity group (click to expand details).
  • Ubiquitous Moon Ore Mining Crystal I
  • Ubiquitous Moon Ore Mining Crystal II
  • Common Moon Ore Mining Crystal I
  • Common Moon Ore Mining Crystal II
  • Uncommon Moon Ore Mining Crystal I
  • Uncommon Moon Ore Mining Crystal II
  • Rare Moon Ore Mining Crystal I
  • Rare Moon Ore Mining Crystal II
  • Exceptional Moon Ore Mining Crystal I
  • Exceptional Moon Ore Mining Crystal II

Reactions

Reactions are now only possible in Upwell Refineries. Read the dev blog for full details about these changes.

Three new Service Modules have been introduced which can be installed in Refineries. These modules enables you to produce tech-2, tech-3, and booster materials (click to expand details).
  • Standup Composite Reactor I performs both Simple and Advanced Reactions (Tech 2)
  • Standup Biochemical Reactor I performs both Biochemical and Medium Biochemical Reactions (Boosters)
  • Standup Hybrid Reactor I performs Hybrid Reactions (Tech 3)
Currently existing POS Reactor Arrays have been offlined (click to expand details).
  • POS Reactor Arrays no longer perform Reactions of any kind. Any reactions that were running at the time of this release have been stopped and will not be able to be restarted in a POS Reactor Array. 
  • All POS Reactor Arrays have been offlined since this release, but remain anchored.
  • POS Reactor Arrays will not be able to be onlined again. No new arrays will be able to be manufactured and no new arrays can be anchored. Any jobs to manufacture arrays that are running at the time of the release will continue to run (will not be paused or cancelled) and the arrays will be delivered to the manufacturer once the job has completed. It will not be possible to anchor or online these arrays.
  • A compensation plan will be put in place in the future to reimburse the investment capsuleers have put into this equipment.

Reactions activity now uses the standard Industry UI and is governed by a separate System Cost Index when calculating the cost of a job.

Reaction formulas can be repackaged.

Science & Industry

  • Industry: The maximum amount of industry runs has been reduced to 10,000 due to performance concerns. 
  • Industry: It is no longer possible to start or deliver an industry job, which would exceed the item limit of the output location (mostly relevant for copy jobs).
  • The volume of all Hydrogen Isotopes, Helium Isotopes, Oxygen Isotopes, and Nitrogen Isotopes have been cut in half to 0.05m3 per unit

Structures & Deployables

  • Unassembled ships in Upwell structure wrecks and ejected Upwell hangar containers can now be launched into space. Doing so will automatically assemble the ship.
  • Bookmarks of structures now allow warping when the structure has been unanchored. This will only affect bookmarks created after the patch. Pilots that plan to use bookmarks after unanchoring a structure should recreate their bookmarks.
  • The name of an asset safety wrap now contains the name of the character which sent the items to asset safety, if they were sent manually to asset safety (and not through structure removal).
  • Mining drones will no longer be able to deliver their ore to a ship that is tethered.
  • The sequence of Vulnerability at the time of anchoring has changed for all Upwell Structures in all regions of New Eden.
    The sequence now follows:
    Deploy in space → Vulnerable (15 minutes) → Anchoring (24 hours) → Vulnerable (15 minutes) → Online (until scheduled vulnerability set by owner)
  • A new line of Upwell Structures are now available: Refineries. These structures are the exclusive location of both Moon Mining and Reactions, and are also bonused to reprocessing activity. Further details about the Athanor (Medium Refinery), the Tatara (Large Refinery), the Moon Drill Service Module and Moon Mining rigs can be found in this dev blog.
  • All reprocessing rigs are receiving upgrades to the breadth of ores that receive their bonuses. Existing M reprocessing rigs will be consolidated into one variant that applies to all standard ores and one variant that applies to all ice. A new variant that applies to moongoo ore will also be added, reducing the total number of M reprocessing rigs from 4 to 3. Existing L reprocessing rigs will be consolidated into a single rig type that applies to all forms of ore and ice
  • Since L reprocessing rigs will now provide exactly the same benefits as XL reprocessing rigs we are reducing the cost of XL reprocessing rigs to the same level as L rigs.
  • The strength of the reprocessing bonuses provided by all reprocessing rigs will be reduced slightly (a 1% absolute reduction in the base highsec yield for both T1 and T2 rigs).
  • All reprocessing rigs (M, L and XL) will be unfitted from their current locations and placed in the Corp Deliveries hangar of the structure in which they are located. The owners of the structure will then be able to decide if they wish to keep them in their current location or move them to a new Refinery once it has been built.
  • All XL reprocessing rig items (and their corresponding blueprints) will be duplicated to compensate for the change in build requirements and value. All duplicate blueprints will hold the same levels of research as the ones currently owned. Extra rigs and blueprints owned by characters will be placed in the owner's personal Item Hangar in their home station. Extra rigs and blueprints owned by a corporation will be placed in the Corp Deliveries hangar in the corp HQ station.

User Interface:

Improvements to quantity tooltips (click to expand details)
  • Tooltips have been added to number edit fields. If the entered amount is above 10k, there will be a tooltip that writes out the amount to help you quickly realize the order of magnitude of the number (so you don’t sell your 2b module for 2m)
  • The tooltips have also been added to a few handpicked numbers, such as the total in the Sell Item window and the total in the Buy window (for single item). For example:

    45343 => ≈ 45.3 thousand
    25000 => 25.0 thousand
    9999000 => ≈ 10.0 million
    15545640000 => ≈ 15.5 billion
     
Improvements to the broadcasting Radial menu (click to expand details)
  • A new type of Radial menu has been added. It is in the shade of the fleet color you have set on your client, to help you differentiate it from the normal radial menu.
  • It’s activated with a shortcut that set in the ESC window > General.
  • The Broadcasting Radial Menu has selected broadcasts that can be activated on other items (Target, Warp, Align to) as well as other broadcasts (Heal shield, heal armor, heal cap) that can be activated when clicking in empty space or on your own ship.
  • the Broadcast Radial Menu takes into account the broadcast delay, and an option in the menu is not available unless it can be used.
     
  • Options to turn off incoming energy warfare and remote repair effects have been added to the combat log and messages window.
  • Added “Mining Messages” and “Bounty Payout Messages” to combat log settings.

  • Pilot and ship images in the ‘Selected Item’ window are now draggable and can be dragged and dropped to chat.
  • Added a tooltip to explain that the Radial menu shortcut option in the Shortcuts tab overrides any delay set in general settings.
  • Changed bookmarks in the new map so they only show at the solar system level, unless you have bookmarked the actual solar system itself then you get a marker for that bookmark.
  • Tweaked the point at which bookmark icon fades in and out in the new map if you have bookmarked the solar system.
  • Toggle and combo buttons text size has been slightly reduced so it is the same as other UI controls.

The Agency

The Agency has been changed to a new UI that will act as a hub for almost all PVE content. You can find more information in this dev blog.

You can access The Agency from the Neocom or using the ALT+M shortcut.

  • Clicking a region or a constellation will now zoom in if we're zoomed out further than twice the look at distance for either of them.
  • Hovering a region or constellation will now highlight its lines.
  • Region labels are now brighter when zoomed out.
  • Ctrl+clicking a solar system will now set it as destination, Ctrl+shift+click will add waypoint.
  • Implemented a very basic compass that points north clicking it will reset the yaw, so north is up. Space North...! This is still being worked on.
  • Double clicking the scene will now take you to your current location.
  • Bookmarks are now shown correctly on the map, both bookmarked systems and entities within them.

Patch notes for July 2017 release
Released on Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Features & Changes

Balancing:

  • Required input materials to build Pirate Battleships has been increased.

Exploration:

  • The drop rates of T3 datacores and ancient relics from Sleeper exploration sites have been adjusted as part of the Strategic Cruiser rebalance.
  • The procurement officers for major pirate factions across New Eden have been struggling to supply enough Small Ancillary Armor Repairers to equip their fleets, and their previous fallback of making up the difference from purchases on the open market is starting to require an ever-larger portion of their budget. Consequently, they have requested that their in-house research and manufacturing divisions increase output of these modules significantly until their module stockpiles have recovered. For a limited time, the chance of obtaining Small Ancillary Armor Repairer blueprint copies from attacks against pirate data sites has increased massively.

Graphics:

  • The Tech3 Strategic Cruiser system back-end has been redesigned to improve client stability and performance.
  • The Rupture, Muninn and Broadsword have had their hulls redesigned.
  • All Battlestation structures have been updated with physically based materials, improving their overall aesthetics. 
     

Miscellaneous:

Missions & NPCs:

  • Back-end for The Agency is deployed. The event starts 18th July.

Science & Industry:

  • Added the missing Tesseract Capacitor Units from the blueprints of the CONCORD ships.
  • The industry requirements for building Strategic Cruisers and their subsystems have also been adjusted. All the details can be found in the forum thread here.

Ships:

  • Tech 3 Strategic Cruisers have been rebalanced. Details of the goals behind this change can be found in this devblog.
  • The available subsystems have been condensed into a smaller number of more powerful and useful choices.
  • Strategic Cruisers now have four subsystem slots (reduced from five) with three choices in each slot (reduced from 4)
  • Rigs can now be freely removed from Strategic Cruisers without destroying them.
  • All Strategic Cruisers have received a dedicated subsystem bay so they can carry alternate configurations along with them on their adventures
  • Each of the Strategic Cruiser hulls and subsystems have been rebalanced. All the details can be found in the following forum thread:
  • On patch day, July 11th 2017 11:00 UTC:
    • We highly encourage all players who will be flying T3 Cruisers at the time of downtime on July 11th get themselves into a safe location such as a friendly starbase or docked within a station/structure before the downtime begins. This will ensure that they do not get caught in a dangerous situation with some of their modules offline when they next log in.
    • All characters that have the Electronic Subsystem Technology, Amarr Electronic Systems, Gallente Electronic Systems, Caldari Electronic Systems, and/or Minmatar Electronic Systems skills trained will receive the skillpoints from these skills as unallocated skillpoints as well as ISK reimbursement for the NPC cost of the skillbooks.
    • Existing subsystems that are not fit to a Strategic Cruiser will be directly transformed into their closest functional equivalent under the new system.
    • Strategic Cruisers with subsystems fit to them will have their subsystems converted into new ones directly, and will receive one extra subsystem placed in their cargo hold (to ensure that players have the same number of subsystems before and after the patch).
    • This means that although all fitted Strategic Cruisers will continue to have a valid set of subsystems after the patch, some of their modules may go offline as fitting and even slot layouts may change.
    • The complete list of which subsystem combinations fit to Strategic Cruisers will be converted into which subsystem combinations after the patch can be found in this spreadsheet.

Structures & Deployables:

  • The contents of a Corp office in an Upwell Structure will now become impounded when the office is removed. The impounded items can be retrieved by re-renting an office in the same location, or moving the items into asset safety if available.
  • The area around moons in which new Upwell Structures may not be deployed has been increased to a radius of 4000km. This will only impact the deployment of new structures, existing structures within that range are not affected.

User Interface:

  • The right-click menu option to repair a module shows now the needed quantity of Nanite Repair Paste.
  • The tooltip information in the fitting window and the HUD has been improved for several Upwell structure modules.
  • Calendar events (that have not been filtered out) now give a notification when the event begins. These notifications can be filtered using the normal notification settings.

  • It is now possible to split at stack in the corp hangar in an Upwell structure with the "Split Stack" right click option.
  • Corporation hangars in Upwell structures have been upgraded and are now properly enforcing the limit of 1500 item stacks per hangar division.

User Interface:

  • Fixed issue causing some Show Info windows to show up empty and transparent.
  • Added separate notifications group "Operations" to control settings for notifications related to the Inception tutorial.
  • Improved the filtering by standing in the fleet finder to also show fleets with higher standing instead of only the selected standing.
  • Fixed a problem which prevented some mails as being properly marked as read, if they were sent to the sender himself.
  • The character sheet now correctly shows the existence of the Genolution 'Auroral' AU-79 implant after using a jump clone.
  • Fixed a problem with the counter of open market orders.
