Structures & Deployables:

  • Outposts, Infrastructure Hubs, Territorial Claim Units, Station Services (if not disabled), and Command Nodes now have a new behavior related to the Entosis mechanic: Defensive Regeneration. These items will now slowly automatically capture themselves in the defender's favor if there are no active Entosis links targeted on them. The rate of regeneration is unaffected by the Activity Defense Modifier or any other variable, and is fixed for each different type of structure. The regeneration time for each type of structure is shown in the type's window.
  • Strategic Infrastructure Upgrades that are installed in an Infrastructure Hub may now be manually offlined by a character with Director roles in the owning corp. When an upgrade module is offlined, any dependent starbase structures will immediately be offlined, and cannot be re-onlined until the necessary IHub upgrade itself is put back online again. Any upgrade that is offline will not contribute towards the IHub's weekly bill. When a character installs a new upgrade or onlines an existing upgrade, he must pay an upfront fee equal to the weekly bill for that upgrade. Installing/Onlining upgrades requires the Station Manager role.
  • Additionally, the weekly bill based on the current upgrade status is now visible in the IHub Manager window. This display will update in real time as upgrades are installed/onlined/offlined. See this dev blog for more details.
  • TCUs and IHubs can now be self destructed by directors in the owner corporation. The self destruct countdown will take 20 minutes to complete. Directors and CEOs in the owner corporation are able to cancel the countdown.

Technical: 

  • Brain in a Box and Dogma Rewrite: Performance optimization (mostly for fleet jumps and for Jita) and code refactoring of core systems of the EVE codebase. This includes a full code rewrite of skill training, fleet bonuses and the heat system - but without any functional changes. This change enables possibilities for further performance improvements and game design changes. More details about this will be available soon in a Dev Blog. 

User Interface:

  • The Route Info Panel will now more accurately represent the distance to waypoints when in a wormhole system. Adding a single waypoint will display as "Unknown Jumps", whereas multiple waypoints will display as "X+ jumps", giving the distance between the waypoints as X.
  • Changed the icon for the Pilot's License Extension item.
  • Added a refresh button to the Sovereignty tab of the Corporation window, to allow the data to be refreshed without closing the window.
  • Added 'Jump' option to right click menu when clicking a saved location that is a stargate, in the People & Places window.
