PATCH NOTES FOR DECEMBER 2019 RELEASE – 2019-12-10

RELEASED ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10TH 2019

FEATURES & CHANGES:

HyperNet Relay:

A brand new trade network is introduced to EVE Online, called the HyperNet Relay.

  • The HyperNet Relay can be found in the Neocom Menu, under Finance.
  • A short introductory tutorial will be shown on the first time the HyperNet Relay is opened.
  • Almost any single item can be offered for trade, there are no trading of stacks of items.
  • Items being offered for trade must be located in an NPC Station (not a Structure).
  • Creating a HyperNet offer requires a number of HyperCores which act as the Broker’s Fee (5%) and scale depending on the total price of the offer.
  • A total price of the offer must be set, and also the number of HyperNodes which can be purchased by players.
  • HyperNet Offers can be specified as ‘Private’ which excludes them from the main browse view and can be only accessed by a direct shareable link
  • All HyperNet offers are created with a duration of 3 days.
  • If not all of the HyperNodes have been purchased in an offer after 3 days, the offer expires:
    • The creator of the expired offer, has the item delivered back to the station it was being offered from.
    • The HyperCores were the broker’s fee and are not refunded back to the creator.
    • All players who bought HyperNodes in an expired offer, have their transactions refunded.
  • You can search for new offers through the browse tab, by refreshing the results and including specific filters.
  • Filtering for offers can be done by Item type, group, location of the offer. There are also range filters for the individual HyperNode prices, and how many HyperNodes the offer is using.
  • Purchasing a HyperNode can be done individually, or in bulk by using ISK.
  • Once all HyperNodes have been sold for any given offer, a single HyperNode is randomly chosen and the HyperNode owner receives the item that was on offer.
  • The creator of the offer, receives all sales of the HyperNodes in ISK minus a sales tax of 5%.

Graphics:

  • JITA trade hub structure expanded.
  • PKN Interstellar & HyperNet banners added to JITA station.
  • Holographic visuals depicting the ongoing JITA trade hub development.
  • Additional traffic around the JITA station.
  • Updated collisions for JITA stations.

Overview:

  • Some adjustments have been made to the default overview settings, in an effort to align them more with the popular settings used in many player created overview packs and provide a more useful default for new players:
    • The Velocity column will now be shown by default
    • Ship type, corporation and alliance tickers have been moved before the pilot name in default bracket setup
    • Broadcasted overview entries are now by default moved to the top of the overview
    • The “Pilot is in your corporation” overview state has been split into 2 states: “Pilot is in your Capsuleer corporation” and “Pilot is in your Non Capsuleer corporation”. In a subsequent release the “Capsuleer corporation” status will moved above the crimewatch statuses (Criminal, Suspect, -5 security) to better reflect the priorities pilots have when they have joined a player corp. NOTE: If saved overview presets from before this patch are loaded to a character after the patch the new “Pilot is in your Non Capsuleer corporation” state will start at the bottom of the list.

Structures & Deployables:

  • Defenders can no longer choose a day of the week for exiting the hull reinforcement cycle. Structures will exit reinforcement at the next available hour of the defenders choosing (+/- 3 hours) after the following durations:
    • Wormhole space: 1.5 days
    • Low and Null security space: 2.5 days
    • High security space: 4.5 days
  • Updated vulnerability windows now takes 30 days to take effect (instead of 7).
  • In a solar system where the Activity Defense Multiplier is above 4.0 and where an Infrastructure Hub is held by an alliance, pilots that are NOT members of that alliance will be unable to deploy medium Upwell structures (Astrahus, Athanor and Raitaru).
  • The random jitter range on reinforcement exit times is increased from +/- 2 hours to +/- 3 hours.
  • FW structures now may not tether in the circumstances listed below:
    • A ship piloted by the attacking faction (or their ally) can never receive tether from ANY structure whilst in enemy FW space.
    • A structure owned by the attacking faction (or their ally) can never provide tether to ANY ship whilst in enemy FW space.
  • Ansiblex Jump Gate and Tenebrex Cyno Jammer service modules will be offlined if the structure is within 500km of another structure. (This is the conclusion of the Ansiblex anchoring range changes initiated in Beat Around the Boosh).
