Listed below are the changes and addition to Rhea, the latest release / expansion to the EVE Online universe. Notable is the addition of the confessor and the changes to clone mechanics. Read on!

FEATURES & CHANGES :

Audio:          

  • New Rhea theme song at start up
  • Sound environment for a cloaked structure
  • Sound environments for Thera: System Entry, Station exterior, Hangar, Shattered Planets
  • Sounds for Confessor animations (the new Amarr destroyer)

Balancing:

  • The fee for changing your home station has been raised to 100.000 ISK (from 5.600 ISK)

Corps and Alliances:

  • A character with the Personnel Management role in a player corp can now invite players directly to the corporation, without the recruit having to put in an application himself. Invites may be sent by using the "Send Corporation Invitation" option when right-clicking on a character name/portrait.
  • Standard application flow (this process is unchanged):
  • 1) Recruit applies to corporation
  • 2) Personnel Manager accepts the application and sends an offer to the recruit
  • 3) Recruit accepts the offer and becomes a member of the corporation
  • New invitation flow (effectively skips step 1 above):
  • 1) Personnel Manager sends an invitation to the recruit
  • 2) Recruit accepts the invitation and becomes a member of the corporation
  • A recruit can only have a single in-progress application/invitation with a particular corp at any time.
  • Both parties are notified via the notification system when an application is created/updated. These notifications may be configured or suppressed like any other.
  • The rate at which a character can send out invites is throttled to prevent excessive spam.
  • Changes to the mechanics about when a character may join/leave a corporation:
  • A character can create a new application to join a corporation from anywhere. (Previously could applications could only be submitted whilst docked in a station)
  • A character cannot choose to leave a corporation unless he is either docked or in a capsule. (Previously he quit from a corp at any time)
  • A character cannot accept a completed corporation invitation unless he is docked or in a capsule. (Previously he could accept a completed invite at any time)
  • Note that changing corporations will continue to trigger a 10 second session-change timer

  24. Do you know that buying like on Instagram you can develop your account much faster. I found out about it once looking for information about popular hashtags. I often buy likes on Szybkielajki.pl because it’s cheap and fast.
