Incarna 1.0 Features - 21 Jun 2011:

Set Foot into Captain’s Quarters

Step out of your pod and into your own personal capsuleer suite, filled with the tools and toys that every pilot's pad should have.

  • Strategic Data Feeds - Sovereignty changes, incursion locations, bounties and pertinent up-to-the-minute data are only a touch of a screen away.
  • News Feeds - The latest information from Interstellar Correspondents and other major news sources scroll across your main viewscreen.
  • Agents at Your Fingertips -Career agent panels and an entirely new Agent Finder have been installed in all Captain's Quarters. Selecting missions has become a more convenient and more streamlined process.
  • Planetary Interaction Panel - One-touch convenient access and management of your planetary structures.
  • Walkway/Balcony - A majestic viewpoint of one of the most prized objects in the universe - your ship.

The Noble Exchange (NeX)

Luxury items, rarities and articles of distinction can be purchased through the Noble Exchange (NeX), a boutique for the discriminating capsuleer, available in each station. NeX items can be purchased directly using Aurum, a new unit of currency obtained by converting PLEX, or through the market from any capsuleer who has purchased them and put them up for resale to other players.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall...

Browsing through your wardrobe and changing your appearance is a matter of simply stepping up to the mirror and clicking. Customization mirrors will be available in all Captain's Quarters.


ECM Changes for Better Battle

We've rebalanced the number of ECM NPCs in a wide range of missions, especially the lower tier missions, to make sure those ECM NPCs aren't getting out of hand.


Traffic Advisory: Jumpbridge Changes Ahead

We've limited jumpbridges to one per system. To make them easier to use and decrease the logistics burden, we've also increased their fuelbay to 30,000 m2.


Faction vs faction standings

Due to popular demand, we've re-introduced a standings tab for factions. You can now check your faction relations with the other factions from the Show Info window.


Performance Improvements

The ongoing initiative to optimize performance continues in Incarna, with multiple back end enhancements and fixes to improve user interface, gameplay and connection. Iteration on weapon grouping code, an updated channel retrieval system and refactoring of server-to-client fixes have all contributed to throttling up performance in the Incarna expansion.


Redone and Feature-filled New Player Experience

New players will embark on an improved tutorial mission designed to provide an epic and engaging experience. Aura, the classic voice of EVE Online's earlier tutorials, has returned to the new player experience! She's learned German and Russian as well.


Amarr’s Modern Maller Arrives

The Imperial Navy has redressed some of its cruiser-class ships, unveiling sleek new architecture and sophisticated detailing for the Maller, Sacrilege and Devoter.

New Official EVE Forums
