Patch notes for EVE Online: Rubicon 1.1
Released on Tuesday, January 28th 2014
Patch size: 1,1 GB (Approximately)
- Adding 2 new deployable structures:
- Mobile Scan Inhibitor – Provides a way to hide ships from probe and directional scanning.
- Mobile Micro Jump Unit – Launches a ship 100km in its current direction, similar to the Large Micro Jump Drive module.
- See Dev Blog for more details on these two units: http://community.eveonline.com/news/dev-blogs/rubicon-1.1-mobile-structures/
- New Siphon Unit – Small Mobile ‘Rote’ Siphon Unit:
- Favors processed materials over raw materials.
- Steals 110 units of processed materials.
- Steals 20 units of raw materials.
- Waste factor is 10%
- Capacity is 10%
- Blueprint available on market, build cost is slightly higher than for existing base version.
- New Siphon Unit – Small Mobile ‘Hybrid’ Siphon Unit:
- Steals polymers from Polymer Reactor Arrays.
- Steal amount is 50% of batch size.
- Waste factor is 10%
- Capacity is 1200.
- Blueprint available on market, build cost is same as for the existing base version.
- New deployable – Encounter Surveillance System:
- Affects NPC bounty payouts in system it is deployed in.
- Four variations, one for each race. The racial variations are all statistically the same.
- The ESS is sold directly from empire navy stations (so the Gallente Encounter Surveillance System is sold in Federation Navy stations, for instance).
- The ESS is sold for 25 million ISK.
- Can only be deployed in null sec, max one per system. Cannot be deployed close to stargates, stations or starbases. Can be scooped by player that deployed it.
- Becomes active after 120 seconds.
- The ESS has a global beacon, so it is visible to all in system. When a ship comes into proximity of the ESS, a message is broadcast in local notifying this.
- While active, NPC bounty payments pay out full value, with 80% being paid directly and 20% being stored in a system-wide pool. In addition, for each 1000 bounty ISK you get 0.15 Loyalty Points, these are LPs for the empire navy based the ESS type.
- The payout can rise over time, the chance is based on activity. The ISK payment rises by 1% at a time and the LP payout by 0.01. It can rise five times, so maximum payout value is 105% of ISK value and 0.2 LPs per 1000 ISK. Destroying, scooping or accessing the ESS resets the payout value.
- The ESS has an EHP of 250k.
- There is a warp disruption bubble with a radius of 15 km around the ESS.
- To get the ISK in the system-wide pool, you need to interact with the ESS. The range to interact with it is 2500 meters. While interacting with the ESS, a warp scramble effect is put on you.
- When you start to interact you get two choices, Share and Take all. Share has a timer of 30 seconds, Take all has a timer of 210 seconds. If you move out of range (or are destroyed) while interacting, the timer is reset.
- Once the timer is up, a notification is sent out informing all that contributed to the pool on who accessed it and what option was chosen.
- The Share option leads to the ISK in the pool being shared amongst those that contributed to the pool, each player receiving ISK equal to what he added to the pool.
- The Take all option leads to tags dropping in a can. The tags can be turned in at navy stations of the same race as the ESS for ISK.
- The final ship in the Sisters of EVE line, the Nestor Battleship, is coming to New Eden
- Like it’s smaller counterparts it is themed around exploration and flexibility, and especially wormholes
- Rather than being able to cloak, the Nestor is bonused for remote repair amount and range, making it the most potent sub-cap logistic ship in EVE.
