Gleðileg Jól

By CCP Hellmar

I think we have hot-fixed the last remaining Castor issues with the reboot last night. That reboot was for code updating many agent missions and bringing back scenario NPC infestations. Scenarios like "The Training Grounds" and "Golgothan Fields" should have NPCs again. We already have the prepped the next update and it's currently running on Chaos, that update should be the end of all grid-exploits in EVE.

Optional Tranquillity patch 1360

By CCP Hellmar

We have put together an optional TQ patch. It most importantly fixes the mining drone CTD. http://patch.eve-online.com/evepatch1352-1360.exe I also fixes a slew of other issues. Firing at Mining Drone no longer causes a crash to desktop Bookmark folder structure should function correctly There are new columns in the scanner: size, speed, transversal speed and radial speed T2 splash screen As changing speed during warp is no longer valid, the UI doesn't attempt it, thus the speed meter state is a...

There was an unscheduled downtime for couple of hours. We were hotfixing Tranquility which should take care of the following issues: Agents dishing out bonuses like candy + mission completion ending in error. Imbalanced standing loss for mission failure.

Some of the issues with Castor

By CCP Oveur

There were some fixed deployed during downtime to some items but there are still a couple of known issues that are being worked on. I'll try to keep you updated when more is known in the next couple of days. Agents are in some instances not giving rewards, not giving necessary items to complete and sometimes reseting the mission.

Apologies for over extending the estimates

By CCP Hellmar

For this update we wanted to be extra careful as possible as the size of it is more than anything done before. Once all the database upgrading was done (several passes over more than 50 GB of data) we started the servers in a way that only we here at CCP and Customer support at Síminn could connect. We wanted to do this to do a dry run of the various systems that were affected by the update.

1238 patching woes

By CCP Hellmar

There is a problem with autopatching in 1238. As there are a lot of eve players that don't frequent the eve site, forum, news, blog, fansites, etc. we need your help with alerting these players to go and manually patch from 1.10.1238 to 1.11.1352 All that is needed is to go to this page and press the relevant 1238 patch and run it. All other version of EVE should autopatch correctly.

Warp cancellation

By CCP Hellmar

Most of you have probably experienced the case where you initiate warp too close to a station or a large asteroid, watching your ship move at tectonical-drift-rate speeds as it aligns its course with the warp destination. We have released a server side patch to Tranquillity which allows you select "Stop My Ship" from the context menu to exit the warp phase. BTW I don't think I have recommended patch 1254 enough.

Also given the size of the update this time, there is a chance that there are some snags here and there, please be patient while we clean them all up Hope you like it.
