Patch Notes For 2021-05-18.1

Features & Changes

Modules:

Interdiction Nullifiers

  • All interdiction nullifiers are High-Slot modules and only one nullifier can be fit per ship:
    • Interdiction Nullifier I
    • Compact Interdiction Nullifier
    • Restrained Interdiction Nullifier
    • Interdiction Nullifier II
  • When fitted these modules will reduce targeting range and ship scan resolution by 50%.

Activation of interdiction nullifiers will apply nullification for a duration, after which a cooldown will occur. These new modules can be fit by the following ship classes:

  • Interceptors
  • Blockade Runners
  • Deep Space Transports
  • Tech I Industrials
  • Covert Ops Frigates
  • Victorieux Luxury Yacht
  • Strategic Cruisers

Warp Core Stabilizers
Warp Core Stabilizers have now been converted to an active module, where they must be activated to increase the strength of your ship's warp core. Moving forward, you can only fit one warp core stabliizer to your ship at any time. Those ships that are currently fit with more than one of these modules will need to unfit them from their ship.

In addition to this change, when the module is online the ship's drone bandwidth will be reduced by 50%

Both Warp Core Stabilizers and Interdiction Nullifiers may be activated while under the effect of a stargate cloak.

Science & Industry:

  • Added new blueprints for Interdiction Nullifiers:
    • Interdiction Nullifier I
      • Available from Empire Navy stations.
    • Compact Interdiction Nullifier
      • Available from CONCORD LP Stores.
    • Restrained Interdiction Nullifier
      • Available from CONCORD LP Stores.

Ships:

  • Added passive nullification trait to all Shuttles.
  • Removed the passive ability for nullification from Interceptors, Yachts, and T3 Propulsion Subsystems (Interdiction Nullifier).
  • Added new role bonuses to Interceptors, Yachts, and T3 Propulsion Subsystems (Interdiction Nullifier):
    • 80% reduced target range penalty and reactivation delay for interdiction nullification modules.
