Patch Notes For 2021-07-27.1

Features & Changes

Graphics:

  • The Encounter Surveillance System has received a new visual update.
    • The in-space model has been updated.
    • Perimeter lighting now reflects the range players need to be within to access the banks.
    • The new model will now animate when the banks are accessed by Capsuleers.
  • Visual Effects will now play when accessing the ESS.
    • Effects will play for accessing the Main or Reserve Banks
    • The effects will reflect the time of payout when a capsuleer receives the encrypted bonds from the ESS.
  • A new warp disruption bubble is now present for the ESS. This effect is more subtle than the previous iteration and will change visible prominence depending on the camera zoom level.
    • When zoomed in, this will increase the subtlety of the effect.
    • Zoom out to see more clearly the borders of the bubble.

Exploration:

  • Secure Commerce Commission (SCC) Secure Key Storage Sites (SKS sites) are now distributed throughout low-security space. These well-hidden and hard to access sites are fiercely protected by the SCC against any unwanted trespass. Rumor has it from the Guristas Pirates is that behind every SKS site lies an ESS Reserve Security Key, whether you want to believe the rumor them or not is up to you.
  • Roaming NPCs throughout Pochven are changing which points of interest to explore. Triglavian fleets will focus their attention on Stations and Conduit Loop stargates, while EDENCOM NPCs will turn their eyes to sites and celestial locations (such as planets). Drifters and Rogue Drones will be more common around wormholes. Conflict zones will be around Planets, Suns, and the Dazh Liminality Locus. To know exactly where else these NPCs will roam to we will leave for you to discover.

Market:

  • New Eden received a sales tax reduction of 50% in all regions.
  • Brokers’ fees are also reduced by 50%, so the Advanced Broker Relations skill will now provide a 6% relist fee reduction per level instead of 5% (max reduction at level 5 will now be 80%).

Missions & NPC:

  • The restrictions on rewards granted through sites in Pochven (such as Observatory Flashpoints) have been changed. Rewards will now be paid out similar to how Incursions work, in that only a single fleet which has done the most damage and healing inside the site will receive the payout. Only those fleet members present in the site at the time the reward is granted will receive rewards if they are eligible (Eligibiliy is: Not cloaked, Not inside a rookie ship/Shuttle/Capsule/Zephyr).

Game Systems:

  • Encounter Surveillance System (ESS) has received an update to its gameplay: Reserve Banks.
    • The Reserve Banks are now able to be intruded upon with the use of an ESS Reserve Security key.
    • Reserve Banks once opened, will begin to pay out every minute to any Capsuleer who is linked.
    • Every Capsuleer who is linked at the time of the payout will receive a share of the money in encrypted bonds (to be redeemed on the market from NPC Sell Orders).
  • Capsuleers can only maintain an intrusion link to one bank at a time (Main or Reserve).
  • ESS Reserve Security Keys are now available.
    • These keys allow the keyholder to trigger a release of encrypted bonds from the ESS Reserve Banks. The keys are assigned to quadrants of New Eden's regions and are available in two variations which unlock the reserve bank for either 15 or 45 minutes.

Structures & Deployables:

  • The Defunct Encounter Surveillance System deployable has now a decay component of 14 days, removing the last of the old ESS deployables from space.

User Interface:

  • Added a brand new in-space User Interface with the Encounter Surveillance System.
    • This new in-space UI is a major milestone which unlocks exciting potential for EVE Online.
    • The UI will react to camera angles and zoom levels.
    • Elements of the UI are anchored to the physical locations of the Main and Reserve bank.
    • This will show intrusions into the Main and Reserve Bank with timers.
    • Out of range markers will also show when your ship can not access the ESS.
  • Updated the ESS Info-Panel with more information.
    • Both Main and Reserve bank information is now present.
    • Intrusions into either bank are updated immediately.
    • The section title for Main Bank and Reserve Bank can be clicked to open up the transaction log for intrusions.
    • When a security intrusion starts, a Warp To button will appear for players to warp to the site if they are not already there.
    • The Reserve Bank section will show more information on mouse-over.
    • A collapsed version of the info-panel is also available which reduces the size of the panels elements.
  • Removed the ESS Window.

Defect Fixes

Localization:

  • Removed mention of skill loss from Strategic Cruiser traits tab.
