Patch notes for Arms Race release 1.0
Released on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Features & Changes

Clone States:

  • Greatly expanded the Alpha Skill Set. Over 20 million total skill points available, including:

    • Battlecruisers
    • Battleships
    • Tech II small and medium weapons
    • Cross training to all factions available
  • Full list of added skills available in this dev blog
  • Free skill training now ends when Alphas reach 5 million total skill points

    • This included skill points in your unallocated pool
  • Added Daily Alpha Injector, a new training option for Alphas

    • Immediately injects 50,000 skill points into unallocated pool
    • May only be used by Alphas
    • May only be used once per day, per character
    • Can be purchased from the NES, directly from secure.eveonline.com, and can be traded on the in-game market

Gameplay:

  • If a character's medical clone is set to a structure/station where he is unable to access the clone bay (due to permissions or clone service being offline) then when that medical clone is activated he will now awaken in his School Headquarters, instead of his current corporation's HQ station.
  • Corporate Saved Locations can no longer be dragged between folders if the pilot does not have the Communications Officer role.
  • Following on from the reductions in isotope volume and moon material volume released in Lifeblood last month, several changes have been made with the intention of increasing the economic friction associated with capital ship deployments and jump freighter hauling, stimulating the ice product markets, improving the balance of ice product consumption, facilitating the easier trade of high value reacted intermediate materials for T2 production and somewhat reducing the pain that can be caused by heavy jump drive usage and high stacked jump fatigue values. The changes are as follows:

    • Jump Drives:

      • +56% fuel use by Black Ops Battleships
      • +100% fuel use by other ship-based jump drives
      • Reduction of the maximum jump fatigue cap by 20%
      • Further reduction in isotope volume by 40% (to 0.03m3)
      • +20% increase in jump freighter fuel bay volumes
    • Fuel Blocks

      • Doubling the amount of liquid ozone required to build all four block types (from 167 to 350 per batch)
      • Small tweaks to the heavy water and isotope consumption as well primarily to round off the numbers and make math easier for people (167 -> 170 water and 444 -> 450 isotopes)
      • 80% reduction in the volume of all non-alchemy T2 intermediate materials (everything other than the “unrefined” stuff)
      • T2 intermediate materials
    • T2 intermediate materials

      • 80% reduction in the volume of all non-alchemy T2 intermediate materials (everything other than the “unrefined” stuff)

Graphics:

  • We have renovated 23 assets commonly found within missions to bring their visual quality up to our high standards. (V5++)
  • We have removed the missile showinfo 3D preview.
  • Removed unique missile geometry of each missile type and replaced it with a single geometry asset that gets scaled. (Improves client memory consumption.)
  • Planet icons will no longer render in real-time, they have been replaced with static images.
  • Upgraded Freetype SDK to version 2.6.0 (Font middleware)
  • Warp Disruption Bubbles have been updated with increased rendering fidelity, fewer texture artifact errors, reduced whiteout (overdraw), and improved performance in heavily-bubbled environments like fleet fights and camps.

Missions & NPCs:

  • Added the Arms Race and Yoiul Festival events, starting on the 5th of Dec and the 19th of Dec respectively.
  • The DED are continuing to report on increased Blood Raider and Guristas pirate activity. Capsuleers are advised to take necessary precautions.

User Interface:

  • You can now right-click bookmark icons saved at the solar system level
