Shuttles and Capsules now have a 90% reduction to effective distance traveled for jump fatigue accrual.

Structures & Deployables:

  • Following a cynosural jump, ships are delayed from tethering by 30 seconds. The tethering delay does NOT impact docking. This tethering delay applies to all cynosural jumps, including normal capital jumping, black ops jumping, and to ships being bridged (it does not affect the ship that opens up the bridge and stays at the origin point). The 30 second countdown begins once the ship loses its post-jump invulnerability (either by manually moving or after 60s). The ship's tether-block timer will be shown in the buff bar UI.
  • The standard 30 second station undocking invulnerability now also applies to Upwell Structures. As with stations, this invulnerability is broken if a target is locked, a module is activated or any action is taken to move your ship.
  • It is now possible to lock blueprints in corporation hangars within Upwell structures

Added a few characters that may be used in structure names. Structures may now include the following characters in their name:

  • A to Z
  • a to z
  • 0 to 9
  • $#%&'()*+,-.

  • Added visual FX that are played on a structure when is it succesfully completes a repair cycle, or when it is successfully reinforced.
  • Structures in Low Power mode will now display reduced docking traffic, exteriors lights, and holograms.
  • Corporations may now set their default reinforcement hour/weekday. This will be used when anchoring a new structure (but does not affect structures already in space). Editing this setting requires a character to have the Station Manager corporation role. In the Structure Browser UI, go to "My Structures" tab. Select "Any Profile" from the profile list. Go to the "Corporation Settings" tab


  • EVE Voice has been removed

User Interface:

  • Added a '?' icon next to the standing value in the Standings section of the Character Sheet. Hovering this will now show the tooltip for Standings.
  • Added the Standings tooltip when hovering all entries in the Faction/Corporation/Agent section of the Standings tab in the Character Sheet.
  • The Fleet watchlist window now has colour coding
  • The Targeting bracket on Fleet mates is purple (the fleet color) rather than yellow
  • Text for broadcasts for reps now include what ship type the broadcast came from
  • Fleet tags are now displayed on the targets in the target bar
  • It is now possible to remove a Fleet tags (from whatever was tagged before)
  • The results from ship scans are now organized by slots
  • The Show Info window for a solarsystem now has a special tab for structures in the system. Please note that like before, it only lists those structures you have docking access at.
  • The HQ listed in Show Info windows for corporation will now be a link
  • A tooltip has been added to the standing icon in the show info window to show what that icon is based on (player to player, player to corp, alliance to corp etc).
  • If your security status is -2 or lower, the tooltip on your security status in the Character sheet will tell you in which systems the faction police will attack
  • There’s now an option to have the Compare tool only list those attributes that differ for the items currently being compared
  • The height of the “Duration” drop down in market orders have been increased, so all entries fit without scrolling
  • The Salvage option for salvage drones has been moved to the top of the right click menu
  • Volume information has been added to the “material input” and “output” tooltips in the Industry window
  • The right click options that have been categorized as potentially especially destructive will now have a red ! in front of them. Among other things, we hope this helps to make it easier to differentiate between “Reprocess” and “Repackage”
  • Added a "Open Jump Navigation" option when right clicking on the Ship HUD of a jump capable ship.
  • The selected item window and jump shortcut now work for Jump Bridges.
  • Added a visual display of the 30 second invulnerability timer recieved when changing location (undocking or jumping to a cynosural field)

  • Improved clarity of attributes (Capacitor Need Bonus) for High Speed Maneuvering and implants using this skill.
  • The "Broadcast Radial Menu" shortcut now works when assigned to a mouse button
  • When failing to assign a new shortcut due to the button being already in use, the set shortcut window reopens automatically so a new shortcut can be chosen

  • Mining Upgrade skill and implants now display the CPU Penalty Reduction bonus in the Attributes tab.
