Patch Notes for Dominion 1.1
Patch notes for Dominion 1.1, released Thursday, january 21, 2010
Table of Contents
- Motherships are a thing of the past and are now known as Supercarriers. These frontline behemoths will retain their former hulls which are the Aeon (Amarr), Hel (Minmatar), Nyx (Gallente) and Wyvern (Caldari). Supercarriers will receive a massive boost to hit points and can now field Fighter Bombers.
- New fighter bomber drones have been added which can be used by Supercarriers. Fighter Bombers have to be directly controlled by the Supercarrier’s pilot, unlike standard fighters, and cannot be delegated to anyone else. They are meaner versions of fighters with more hit points and field compact citadel torpedoes against their targets. Blueprints for the new bombers will be available from CreoDron stations.
- The Fighter Bomber skill book has now been seeded and will need to be trained in order for Supercarrier pilots to deploy Fighter Bombers.
EVE Voice, Mail & Chat
- Voice fonts have now been added to EVE Voice. This new feature will allow you to alter your voice during chat to increase or lower pitch or to change from male to female voices. This is certainly not going to be abused in any way.
- Dreadnoughts, Carriers or Rorquals: when using their appropriate special module, such as the siege module, triage module or industrial core, they will have a much higher mass when these modules are active. This will limit the effect of bumping stationary ships.
- Supercarrier base jump range has been increased to 5 light years.
- Supercarriers can no longer fit and use jump clone bays.
- Supercarrier shield, armor and structure hit points have been increased greatly for their new frontline role.
- Naglfar secondary bonus has been changed from a Launcher Rate of Fire Bonus to a 5% Capital Projectile Rate of Fire Bonus.
- Signature Radius of all dreadnoughts has been increased to bring them in line with other capital ships.

- The bonus to large hybrid damage on the Vindicator has been increased from 25% to 37.5%
- Triage modules have had their duration and fuel consumption halved.
Weapons & Ammunition
- Citadel Torpedoes and Citadel Cruise Missiles have been balanced with their turret counterparts to ensure they are doing the damage they are supposed to.
- XL turrets have been adjusted slightly to ensure their damage is balanced and to give the short range weapons a bit more range.
- Titans have had their damage bonuses balanced to ensure all the titans are doing similar levels of damage.
- The Laboratory Operation Skill can no longer be trained by characters on trial accounts.
Starbases, Outposts and Stations
