    • Both items can be traded on the market (can be found under the Pilot's Services category).
    • In order to use one of these items it must be located in your station hangar, then you can activate it either via the right-click menu or by double-clicking the item (note that the item can be used remotely, even while you're undocked).

Science & Industry

FIXES:

Audio

  • Fixed a missing sound on the warp gates.

Gameplay

  • Inventory access to starbase structures was incorrectly denied if the player's ship was within range of the control tower (but not the structure itself) and the tower did not have an active forcefield. The structure should now be correctly accessible if the ship is within the area where the forcefield would be, even when the forcefield is not present.
  • Occasionally a static dungeon (such as an Ice Belt or a Sov-upgrade site) would not re-spawn correctly on server startup, and remain missing until after the next downtime. This should now be fixed and all sites should be available according to normal respawn timers.
  • Fixed an issue with 'Expel Member' corporation votes, where a corp member would sometimes be missing from the list of available candidates for removal if he owned slightly more shares than the average shareholder. The intended behavior is that a character holding more than the average shareholder (excluding any shares owned by the corp itself) can only be expelled via a vote. Characters with less shares can be kicked normally.
  • Replaced Scout Drones certificate with Medium Drones certificate on the Sacrilege.
  • Blockade Runners can now access the 'Angel Base' dungeon.
  • Stealth Bombers can now access the 'Knife in the Throat' mission dungeon.
  • Industrial Command Ships can now access the 'Angel Cartel Occupied Mining Colony' dungeon.
  • Microwarp drives can now be used inside the 'Guristas Guerilla Grounds' dungeon.

  • An issue where multiple anomalies could spawn within the same grid has been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue preventing fleet members from warping at range to each other, using the radial menu while on the same grid.
  • Fixed an issue preventing corporation bills from being pasted into chat.
  • Fixed the 'All' overview default tab preset.
  • Fixed some stats on the Mackinaw ORE Edition.
  • The Prospect Expedition Frigate now leaves behind a wreck when destroyed.

Graphics

  • The inventory icon for Women's Rocket dress (green) has been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue which prevented tights from being visible in previews.

Localization

Market:

  • Separated Warp Scramblers, Warp Disruptors, and Interdiction Sphere Launchers into their own market groups.

Technical

  • Fixed an issue with Twitch passwords containing £<>¬

User Interface

  • Fixed issue where it would be hard or impossible to set the standings from corporation or alliance to a corporation if the name was long enough to wrap to the next line.
  • Fixed issue where expanding calendar events into its own window would fail to load all events.
  • Fixed show info issue with formatting of mass for ships. Removed mass from the show info attributes for several item classes where mass has no relevance.
  • Changed wording for warning when marked order are modified to rapidly due to capitalization issues.
  • Fixed an issue preventing tutorial links from functioning in chat.
  • Multiple minor text issues have been fixed.
