Patch notes for YC119.2 Release 1.0
Published on Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Features & Changes

Audio:

Market:

  • Improved the multibuy window by adding an 'export from multibuy' option and an 'add order to quickbar' option.

Miscellaneous:

  • Item Crate opening experience has changed to spawning items in the hangar when a node is clicked

Science & Industry:

  • Industry job cost tooltip improvements: The expenses for industrial activities are now easier to spot. No changes to the underlying calculations have been made.
  • Industry Window improvements:  All Blueprints available to a character will now be displayed in the Industry Window when browsing Blueprints. Unavailable blueprints can also be shown, but are filtered out by default from the settings cog in the blueprints tab.
  • Added a 'buy missing material' option to industry window.
  • Changed the output for the 'Copy Material Information' in the Industry window to make it compatible with the multibuy import, as well as, third party applications. The information will now be copied in this order: "ItemName", "RequiredAmount", "AmountAvailable", "Est. Unit price", "typeID" (used to be "typeID", "ItemName", "AvailableAmount", "RequiredAmount", "Est. Unit price")

Structures & Deployables:

  • Personal Insurance is now available as a standard NPC service in all Upwell structures.
  • A fighter squadron launched from a structure will now undock from one of the structure's frigate undock points (They will still automatically begin to orbit the structure once launched).

User Interface:

  • Added an option to reload the ship and fighter HUD to the "Reset Settings" tab of the ESC window. 
  • The "Show Info" windows will now highlight any attributes that have been modified (Green for good, red for bad). The tooltip for any modified attribute will display its base value.
  • Fitting: When hovering over a fitted module, the portions of the CPU and PG that are used by it will be highlighted.
  • Fitting Simulation: Opening a show info for a simulated module, drone, rig or charge will now give you the attributes on the simulated item, instead of the base version.
  • A small tweak has been made to Structure brackets to make the L and XL icons more easily distinctive.

Defect Fixes

Gameplay:

  • Tracking & Guidance disruptors now work on NPCs & Fighters.
  • NPC Tracking & Guidance disruptors now respect Weapon Disruption Resistance.
  • Resolved an issue that would cause error messages when moving items into a container inside your cargohold while exiting warp.
  • When a cargo container is jettisoned from a titan, it will now always appear within a scoopable range. (Previously it could appear up to 7km away from the parent ship).

Drones & Fighters:

  • Fighter abilities will now be deactivated if the controller ship enters a forcefield, or if the controlling ship and the fighter are not on the same grid.
  • Fighters will now inherit their parent ship's forcefield password when launched to space. (Note that changing the ship's password AFTER the fighter has been launched will have no effect – it is only copied once during the launch process).
  • Fixed an issue where fighter squadrons would incorrectly use hotkeys other than High Slot 1-3.
  • Fixed an issue where the selection UI for fighters would sometimes show squadrons as selected when they weren't.
  • Fighters: The refueling UI now takes Time Dilation into account.
  • Remote Tracking Computers now work on Fighters.

  • Stoked the correct fires on the Ore Capital Industrial Ship Rorqual to stop incorrect flame effect placement when the Industrial core is active.**
  • Kickstarted the conveyor belt system on the Ore Capital Industrial Ship Rorqual. Barrels of raw materials are flowing once again.**
  • Adjusted the location of some incorrectly intersecting geometry on the Astrahus Citadel.
  • Fixed an issue that meant that planetary interaction could not be conducted while in the Captains Quarters.
  • Corrected the color of the glow map used on the Minmatar Marauder Vargur.
