Patch notes: April Update

April 24, 2023

Sorry for the late article, RL has been a bit hectic; but I wanted to share the stream of changes brought up in the patches released throughout April and not to lose the habit of covering EVE Online News.

First up, we’ve got some improvements to the user interface that will make your gaming experience smoother than ever. Say goodbye to pesky overlapping windows and hello to a sleeker, more streamlined interface.

But that’s not all! We’ve also made some changes to combat that will have you strategizing like a pro. New weapons have been added, and existing ones have been rebalanced to make sure you’re always packing the best firepower.

And let’s not forget about exploration. You’ll now have access to even more data on celestial bodies, making it easier to find those hidden treasures. Plus, we’ve made some changes to how you can interact with NPCs, making them feel even more like real, living characters.

And finally, we’ve added some quality of life improvements that will make your life in space just a little bit easier. From improved market functionality to better inventory management, we’re always looking for ways to make your time in EVE Online as enjoyable as possible.

Here’s the detailed patch notes from CONCORD’s mouth 😀

PATCH NOTES FOR 2023-04-18.1

Features & Changes:


The Caldari State’s Shadow War research effort is advancing rapidly and the state has reached a major breakthrough in their understanding and mastery of the Stellar Transmuter technology thanks to the efforts of loyalist capsuleers.

  • As a result, Caldari Hacking, Courier and Laboratory sites will now contain a small amount of Stellar Transmuter datacore blueprints and components as loot in addition to the existing Transport Relay datacore loot.
  • Updated Gallente Aligned text in the UI to reflect that Caldari is now a source of Stellar Transmuter research components.


  • 🤝 Removed the respawn cooldown from Observatory Flashpoint sites in Pochven, and Accelerator Flashpoint sites in EDENCOM fortress systems. They will now respawn immediately after being completed.

Defect Fixes:


  • It’s no longer possible to move ships from one Ship Maintenance Bay/Array to another Ship Maintenance Bay/Array from any distance, you will now need to be 2,500m from the bay you are transferring a ship to.
