Apocrypha Expansion Patch Notes

WORLD SHAPING

  • Appearing randomly throughout New Eden, gateways to the unknown will open up access to thousands of new solar systems, new Tech 3 technology, new resources and deadly new enemies, The Sleepers, who have awakened to defend their space with deadly force. With new scanning mechanics you will eventually find these new areas of space which are rich in resources but are heavily guarded. CCP Whisper explains more in his blog Building a new bridge to the stars.
  • Wormholes will bring a whole new level of adventure and exploration for every pilot who dares to probe out an entrance to the unknown. CCP Abathur, in his blog, The darkness at the end of the tunnel tells us about the laws of Wormhole space, the use of starbases, mass effects and tactical environments.

Skills

  • Players can now schedule automatic training of multiple skills. The new interface offers filters, a graphical display of the total queue and the ability to pause or resume the queue at any point in its progress. The skill training system allows you to queue skills that will start training over a 24-hour period. You can enter in up to 50 skills in a queue, as long as they all start training within 24 hours. CCP Eris Discordia tells us why More Queue Queue is the way of the future.
  • Character attribute distribution can now be rearranged in order to diversify or specialize skill training. This means that you can now reallocate attribute points once per year. CCP Flatboy tells us how neural remapping works in his blog A Virgin Mind.

Character Creation and New Player Experience

  • Rebuilt from the ground up, the new player tutorial reveals the many career paths a player can embark on while arming them with the knowledge and gear necessary to start carving their niche in New Eden. The character creation windows are now simpler and easier to follow, attributes can now be re-arranged once per year and new player missions have been revamped to educate players on industry, business and military occupations. CCP Fear provides more details in his blog Your Revamped Rookie – Part 1.

CRITICAL

  • Our Classic client has been retired to make way for Premium Lite, bringing higher quality graphics to users with lower end PCs. With Apocrypha we discontinue support for ShaderModel 1, making ShaderModel 2 the minimum requirement (GeForce FX (5 series) or ATi R300 series cards or compatible) and discontinue the “Classic client” version of EVE, replacing it with “Premium Lite.” CCP Zulupark provides full details in his blog The results are in; EVE and ShaderModel support.
  • A brand new Ramsan 500 has been added to our database server which allows us to have much faster storage. This means that we will see a number of improvements in the future that will shorten daily downtimes, result in faster expansion deployments, and reduce database lag. How MOZO is that!? CCP Mindstar provides much more in depth techno talk in his blog Apocrypharrrrrdware!
  • Existing scan probe launchers, probes and blueprints will automatically convert to the new variety. For people with existing launchers/probes/BPs: all existing launchers become Expanded launchers of the right type, all exploration probes (including multispecs) become Core probes, all ship probes become Combat probes, all observators become Deep Space probes. Sisters versions remain sisters versions. BPs are changed in the same way.

FEATURES

Ships

  • Custom build your next ship! New technology found in Wormhole Space allows players to research, manufacture and fly the next generation of cruisers. Thousands of combinations are possible due to the modular subsystem design Tech 3 brings to ship creation. Flying a Tech 3 Strategic Cruiser is also easier skill-wise than that of Tech 2 ships. Each ship you create can be used to provide more firepower, better defences and many more variations. CCP Nozh tells us more in his blog Strategic Cruisers: a new breed.

Modules

  • Tech II versions of the Codebreaker, Analyzer and Salvager mini-profession modules have been introduced.
  • Tech II Gas Cloud Harvesters have been introduced.

Skills

  • Players can now schedule automatic training of multiple skills. The new interface offers filters, a graphical display of the total queue and the ability to pause or resume the queue at any point in its progress. The skill training system allows you to queue skills that will start training over a 24-hour period. You can enter in up to 50 skills in a queue, as long as they all start training within 24 hours.

Character Creation and New Player Experience

  • Rebuilt from the ground up, the new player tutorial reveals the many career paths a player can embark on while arming them with the knowledge and gear necessary to start carving their niche in New Eden. The character creation windows are now simpler and easier to follow, attributes can now be re-arranged once per year and new player missions have been revamped to educate players on industry, business and military occupations. CCP Fear provides more details in his blog Your Revamped Rookie – Part 1.

NPC’s

  • The Sleepers lay in waiting beyond the wormholes, guarding resources and technologies considered to be of significant power and value back in known space. They will not give up their treasures easily as they are masters of teamwork and manoeuvring. Expect an enemy that works as a team, identifies your weaknesses and protects its own. Full details of the new NPC’s can be found in the blog by CCP Ytterbium When evolution leaps forward.
  • New AI will be applied to the Sleeper NPC’s which allows them to prioritize and change targets at will. This makes PvE combat feel more like PvP. These NPC’s will now repair each other, change targets based on offensive capabilities, logistics or ECM threat. CCP Incognito provides much more detail in his blog How the AI pew pews the player.
  • Pirate factions have switched to tougher ships in low security space to prey upon unsuspecting Capsuleers. Low security space will now see battleships appear in the asteroid fields.

Agents & Missions

  • Spanning multiple regions of space, new epic mission arcs will take players on a journey through all four empires beginning with character creation. As the story progresses and the rewards grow more enticing, pilots will be faced with the decision of which side to fight for in the final battle. CCP Molock tells us more in his blog Should you choose to accept it.

Exploration & Deadspace

  • Scanning in New Eden has been completely revamped in order for Capsuleers to probe out Wormholes and explore the vast riches in Wormhole Space. Modules, skills and implants have all been changed to allow for the new scanning methodology. CCP Greyscale explains all of these changes in his illustrated blog New Blog: Sick in the back of an Astra: A travel blog.
  • We have doubled the number of exploration sites in known space. Every aspect of exploration has received a boost including Booster manufacturing, hacking, archaeology and combat exploration sites. CCP Dropbear tells us more in his blog Getting High on Your Own Supply

Science & Industry

  • Pillage wrecks of ancient Sleeper ships and salvage relics of ancient technology! New Experimental Laboratories allow you to reverse engineer Sleeper relics to build the blueprints for manufacturing Tech 3 components. CCP Chronotis explains how this is all possible in his blog How do I build a Strategic Cruiser?

Sound Improvments

  • An assault on all the senses! Improvements have been made to offer a crisper, richer sound experience, such as unique sounds for NPCs. We’ve set the stage for some amazing future improvements. CCP Real X gives us the low down in his blog EVE Music – Getting inside Real X

Graphics

  • Asteroid fields have been revamped and glorious new asteroids will appear in New Eden. From the huge Veldspar boulders down to the fine crystals of Crokite, the new stunning visuals are a joy to behold. CCP VanishingPoint tells us more in his blog Miners Rejoice.
  • As part of our ongoing effort to bring cutting edge graphics to EVE’s players, almost every effect in game has been redone, from pulse lasers to gate warping and from shield hardeners to energy drain. In addition, almost everything within wormhole space is new, including the wormholes themselves and gorgeous new nebulas, which are a taste of things to come.

User Interface

  • There is no shortage of customization in EVE, from overview settings to ship fittings. Now players can export their favourite settings, catalogue them for easy reference and share them amongst corp mates. CCP Fendahl gives us a look at the new fitting screen in his blog New Fitting Screen in Apocrypha.

Mac

  • Graphics take a leap forward for Mac Users! The beauty of Trinity engine graphics shines through in the Apocrypha release of the Mac client.

Localized Clients

  • EVE Online now boasts complete language support in game, a new knowledge base, and expanded customer support team for our new localized Russian client. CCP Caedmon talks about the Russian and Japanese clients in his blog Machine Translation’s Bad, M’kay?

Miscellaneous

  • The notepad has had some key functionality added. Pressing “Home” goes to the beginning of the current line while “ctrl+Home” goes to the beginning of the first line. Pressing “End” goes to the end of the current line while “ctrl+End” goes to the end of the last line. “Page up” now scrolls up and “Page down” scrolls down.

CHANGES

Need for Speed

  • The Decorations tab will now be dynamically loaded in order to reduce the amount of database calls required each time it is requested.

Ships

  • The “Leave Ship” option in the context menu has been removed when a player is in a capsule.
  • The “Open Fitting” option in the context menu of a ship in space has been changed to “Use fitting Service”. You can open the fitting service (fitting your own ship) if the other ship’s owner is you, your corp, your gang mate or corp mate
  • The base agility of Caldari freighters has been adjusted to better balance the counterparts of the other 3 races. The agility of the Caldari Freighter and Jump freighter has been slightly increased.
  • Rookie ships now have 0 rig slots and 0 calibration points.

Modules

  • Probe launchers will now come in two varieties; The Core Launcher and Expanded Launcher. The Core Launcher will have a fitting requirement of 15 cpu and can only launch probes which are capable of exploration. The Expanded launcher will have a fitting requirement of 220 cpu and can launch probes capable of scanning for ships, drones and exploration sites. Sisters of EVE variations of the Core and Expanded launchers will receive a scan strength bonus along with a slightly faster cycle time for launching probes and reduced cpu fitting requirements.
  • Probes have been changed and three new probe types have been created to replace the previous probe types (Snoop, Fathom etc.). These probes are the Core Probe which can fit in either the Core or Expanded probe launcher which will find exploration sites, the Combat Probe which can fit in the Expanded Probe Launcher only and finds all types of signatures and the Deep Space Probe which can fit in the Expanded Launcher only and replace the Observator Probe of old. Sisters of EVE variations with higher strength will also be available.
  • Cloaking devices now deactivate when a cloaked ship is within 2500m of any station or stargate.
  • ‘Contour’ Reflective Plating I and ‘Spiegel’ Reflective Plating I will no longer show up as storyline variants of Reflective Plating. These modules will now display the correct meta level.
  • The description of all forms of cloaking devices has been changed to read “Fitting two or more cloaking devices to a ship negates their use as unsynchronized light deflection causes interference.” Players should be fitting only one cloaking device per ship.

Drones

  • Drones can now be controlled up to 250 km away from the owners’ ship with the proper skills, implants and rigs.
  • The electronic warfare displays will now show the effects of electronic warfare drones which have successfully webbed, damped, target disrupted or jammed a player ship.

Skills

  • The Signal Acquisition skill is now called Astrometric Triangulation and gives a strength bonus.
  • The Astrometric Triangulation skill is now called Astrometric Acquisition and gives a scan time bonus.

  • The component assembly array now manufactures the Hybrid Tech Components and Data Interfaces.
  • The rapid / equipment assembly array has been changed to manufacture only items under the category modules or deployables.
  • The System Scanner Array has been recalled by its manufacturers for faulty wiring and you can redeem your original purchase cost by selling them back to various NPC corporations.
  • It is no longer possible to construct station warehouses at the equipment assembly array at a starbase. The volume of the completed item is much too large to be stored at this location.
  • The cynosural field generated by a starbase structure cynosural generator will now allow all ships to jump bridge through with a Titan even if some of those players are in different corporations and alliances than the Titan pilot. Previously the starbase cynosural generator would only allow members of the Titan pilots’ alliance to Jump Bridge through. Cynosural generators created by a ship remain unchanged as they allowed all ships to jump bridge with the Titan.
  • All racial Freighter cargo holds can now carry a Capital Ship Assembly array with freighter skill level 4. The Capital Ship Assembly array has been resized to 850k m3, down from 900.

Boosters and Implants

Corporation & Alliance

  • Alliances will now receive a mail reminding them that maintenance bills are due in the next 24 hours.

User Interface

  • The Boolean selector (and/or) has been removed when initially opening the “Find member in a role” option in the corporation page. The selector will display when at least one query line is already there.
  • Previously you would tab from the username to the drop down arrow and then to the password. Now it tabs directly from username to password.

FIXES

Critical

  • Using the jump clone service will no longer cause client lock ups or problems with modules after jumping.

World Shaping

  • Dragonfly and Templar fighters will now engage a target and function correctly.

Player Owned Structures, Outposts and Stations

  • Starbases have received an overhaul. We have cleaned up the production entities to handle checking of supplies and outputs more gracefully. Starbases will, in general, be more efficient in terms of their evaluation – unlinked structures are no longer evaluated at all and less code is executed when calculating the evaluation order. They will also properly stall out like a production pipeline and no longer “lose” inputs or outputs by halting mid-cycle when setups are disrupted.
  • Clicking multiple times on “Assume Control” of a battery at a starbase will now display a message stating whether you have control or if you are assuming control of the structure.
