    • Each Mastery has 5 levels (each matching one of the 5 Certificate levels)

A visualization tool has been added to represent progression and clear identification of all the non-unique ships in-game. This ship tree, named the “Interbus Ship Identification System”, may be accessed by clicking the new button available in your NeoCom, by pressing ALT+& or by clicking the “Show in ISIS” button in the ship show-info. For more information, please refer to that Dev Blog

  • Ships are sorted by the various in-game factions they come from. They are the four main Empire (Amarr Empire, Caldari State, Gallente Federation, Minmatar Republic), plus the various pirate faction and miscellaneous groups like O.R.E., Sansha’s Nation, Blood Raider Covenant, Angel Cartel, Serpentis and Servant Sisters of EVE.
    • The user may select the desired faction by clicking on one of the upper-left faction icons.
    • Mouse hovering one of the icons will update the pop-up menu with relevant information to that particular faction. The icons in the pop-up window may be themselves hovered with the mouse for further details on their respective meaning.
    • Clicking on each faction will open up the respective tree.
  • ISIS Ship groups
    • Ship groups are sorted by size (smaller hulls are displayed on the left, larger hulls on the right) and by Tech level (Tech II and III hulls are located above the Tech I hulls they are based upon).
    • Each ship group has an individual icon for quick recognition and lists all the relevant hulls in its midst (example: the Frigate group in the Amarr Empire faction lists the Executioner, Inquisitor, Tormentor, Punisher, Crucifier and Magnate)
    • Groups that have been unlocked by meeting skill requirements are light up. To view exact skill requirements on unlocked groups, hover the mouse on the group icon.
    • Hovering the ship group icon will indicate its role and display relevant skills. Hovering over the role icons will display more information about them. When the group has not been unlocked yet, this displayed skills will be high-level requirements needed to achieve it. When unlocked, the group will display Spaceship Command skills that give bonuses to the whole group.
  • ISIS ship types
    • Hovering the mouse over each particular ship type displays the ship role and bonuses. As usual, hovering the role icons will display more information about them. Clicking the white text in the ship bonuses will open relevant item show-info (either skills or modules depending on the context).
    • Left-clicking on each ship will open the show-info for that particular hull. Right-clicking will allow the user to view the ship in the market or contracts as well.
    • Below each ship silhouette is the Mastery level icon, which indicates how well the user can fly the hull. It ranks from I to V, and details may be accessed through a left-click, then going into the “mastery” tab in the ship show-info. Ships that have been fully mastered (Mastery at V) will show as golden in the ISIS.
  • Synergy with the Compare tool
    • The Compare Tool (available by clicking the “E” icon at the top of the NeoCom, then selecting “Compare Tool” in the drop-down list) can be used to quickly weight various ship attributes from the ISIS
    • For this, simply drag and drop ship types from the ISIS into the compare tool window, then select specific attributes to be compared from the left scroll-down tab. Ships may also be dragged and dropped from the show info ship model or Market windows.

 

Ships

  • All ships have had their warp speeds rebalanced. Additionally, a ship's maximum warp speed affects how quickly it reaches that speed. (Ships with a higher warp speed will reach that speed in a shorter time). Previously all ships took the same time to accelerate up to their maximum warp speed. Deceleration rates have been similarly tweaked. See this blog for details.

    • When in bastion mode, Marauder is immune to EW but cannot be remote assisted in any way.
    • When in bastion mode, Marauder speed is set to 0 m/s and cannot warp (mass is unchanged). Also receives a weapons timer that prevents station docking or gate jumping. Weapon time doesn't require the user to drop weapon safeties in high-security space.
    • Only one may be fitted per Marauder, cannot be deactivated before cycle ends.
    • Uses 10 CPU and 100 powergrid to fit.
    • Uses no specific fuel or capacitor.
    • Skill requirements: Advanced Weapon Upgrades 5 and Energy Grid Upgrades 5
  • Rapid Heavy Missile Launchers
    • Entirely new missile launcher group with 20 different meta variations
    • Battleship sized launcher that uses heavy missiles as charges
    • New launcher mechanic with very high damage output in a burst followed by 40 second reload time.
    • For details and discussion on Rapid Heavy Launchers look in this thread
  • Rapid Heavy Missile Launcher I
    • Fitting: 960 PG, 50 CPU
    • Rate of fire: 6.5s
    • Charge capacity: 21
    • Reload time: 40s
  • Rapid Heavy Missile Launcher II
    • Fitting: 1210 PG, 59 CPU
    • Rate of fire: 5.2s
    • Charge capacity: 23
    • Reload time: 40s

 

Fleets

  • The ability to store fleet setups has been added. This includes the number of wings and their squads along with their names. Additionally, Message of the Day and Free-Move and Voice settings can be stored in the fleet setup. These fleet setups are stored server side per character.
  • The ability to mass-invite to fleets and mass-move fleet members has been added. This is can be done by dragging pilots from various pilots lists (such as chat, Addressbook, Fleet Window, etc), and dropping them in there Fleet Window where they should be added. Mass-invite/mass-move will never make any of the pilots a commander.
  • It's now possible to add/move pilots to specific wings by dropping them onto the Wing Commander position (while holding down Shift if a single pilot is being dropped).
  • When pilots join a fleet, they will now enter the first available squad that has both Wing Commander and a Squad Commander. If one is is not available, then the first available squad that has a Wing Commander, then first availble squad that has a Squad Commander, and then the last option is the first available commanderless squad.
  • It's now possible to add multiple pilots at once to the fleet Watchlist by dropping them in the Watchlist window.
  • See this devblog for more details.

 

Implants

A new implant set, the Ascendancy set, has been added.

  • 2 sets of 6 implants (high and low grades)
  • Provides a direct boost to warp speed and set bonuses
  • Secondary effect of attribute increases, +2 and +3 in each implant’s specific attribute
  • The implants are constructed using components from the new Ghost Sites.

 

Avatars

  • Collector's Edition Mystery Code Male and Female cyborg arms have been added.

 

Exploration

  • Added a new landmark as reward for Echelon Entertainment's exploration competition, held in summer 2013.

 

Sounds and Music

  • 5 new music tracks have been added to low sec.
  • New jumpgate sound implementation to support new effects (activate, deactivate etc.) - players can now hear when someone enters
  • Atmosphere sounds from suns - based on type
  • Added sound for the disruption bubble
  • Added new "siege mode" sounds

 

Graphics and FX

  • EVE Client supports rendering with DirectX 11 (though there is no graphical difference right now between DirectX 11 and DirectX 9). It is enabled by default if your GPU and OS support it, and DX11/DX9 can be toggled in the EVE Launcher settings.
  • The death sequence has been updated to include a destroyed capsule and new corpse variations.
  • The jumpgate activation distinguishes between incoming and outgoing activations.
  • All ships now have level of detail for their textures which improves the client memory useage.
  • The warp disruption bubble effects have been modernized to include distortion and color variations for each type. (Warp Disrupt Probe = Blue,  Warp Disruption Field Generator I  = Red and Mobile Small Warp Disruptor I = Green).

 

Changes

Tech III Ships

  • You can now fit subsystems in space. If modules need to be removed because of slot changes they will be placed in the cargo hold of your ship. Note that switching subsystems may temporarily reduce the CPU output and power output to zero which will result in all modules being set offline.

 

Ship Balancing

Rubicon brings our next step in our ship balancing initiative. This release affects 22 ships total, mainly focusing on Tech 2 hulls (Interceptors, Electronic Attack Frigates, Interceptors and Interdictors).

  • Electronic Attack Frigates have had the range bonus from Electronic Attack Frigate skill increased significantly, with their cap recharge increased, lock range increased, base speed increased, signature radius reduced and base hitpoints increased. The above changes, along with individual ship adjustments, will make Electronic Attack Frigates a much more potent electronic warfare option.
  • The Interceptor and Interdictor ship classes have been rebalanced. See detailed stats below, with change from previous values in brackets.
  • Marauders now use a specialty module named “Bastion Module”, please refer to the “modules” section above for more details about it. They use a combination of Micro Jump Drives and Bastion mode to move around the battlefield and enter a reinforcement mode with hardened defenses when necessary.
  • Full ship-by-ship rebalance detailed below. The number in parenthesis (+/-) reflects changes next to previous Tranquility attributes for quick comparison.

Science and Industry

The base tech one blueprint required for inventing the Absolution, Nighthawk, Sleipnir and Eos Command Ships have been updated to reflect their new hulls.

  • The Absolution is now invented from a Harbinger blueprint.
  • The Eos is now invented from Myrmidon blueprint.
  • The Nighthawk is now invented from Drake blueprint.
  • The Sleipnir is now invented from Hurricane blueprint.

 

Exploration & Deadspace

Player Owned Structures, Outposts and Stations

  • Ship Maintenance Arrays and XL Ship Maintenance Arrays will now drop wrecks containing some of their ships. Each ship has the same 50/50 survived/destroyed chance as regular loot. Ships can be individually launched from the (XL)SMA wreck in to space, where they can be boarded like any other un-piloted ship. Once the wreck is emptied, it can be salvaged like any other. SMAs will generate killmails showing what ships were dropped and what were destroyed (including items in/on those ships). See [blog] for details.
