REBALANCED RECON SHIPS
Recon ships get the once-over, with the most notable change being immunity to detection by Directional Scanners for Combat Recons. The latest list of changes can be found in CCP Rise's Proteus Recon Ships thread on the forums.
STYLE AND SUBSTANCE
A new look arrives for the fortified-yet-spacious Gallente Exequror. Hull variants for the Oneiros and Navy Issue will follow in coming releases.
BEAUTY AND THE BELTS
ASTEROID FIELD EFFECTS
Polluted with the fragments of countless pulverized rocks, asteroid belts now offer a more visceral look and feel. Dust particles, light rays and smog enhance the atmosphere of asteroid belts, offering, too, cues as to the level of activity and traffic in the area.
THE ORE MUST FLOW
New Player Mining Locations
The remnants of long-abandoned mining colonies can now be found in starter and career agent solar systems, ensuring that the newest capsuleers always have access to some Veldspar close to home. The rocks remaining in these locations are too small for optimal mining by experienced players in Mining Barges, but newer players in Rookie Ships and Ventures will never have to search far from home to find some asteroids to mine.
META LEVEL CHANGES
STREAMLINED & SIMPLIFIED MODULES
Ten more groups of modules get reviewed and revised to provide greater specialization and diversity. "Named modules" in each group have been updated with standardized names to provide you with a clearer description of the benefits and features of each module.
REVAMP & RECORD
More Starmap Features
More beta features arrive for the opt-in star map introduced during the Rhea release. Additions include standalone system view, mouse-over information on stars, search and improved route visualization.
A new Aura for German and Russian
And we mean that in a good way! Russian and German voiceovers for Aura have been completely redone, with EVE player Naburi NasNaburi taking to the sound booth to bring us the German voice of Aura.
