    Patch Notes For 2023-05-04.1

    Features & Changes:

    Factional Warfare:

    Thanks to the efforts of loyalist Capsuleers, the Caldari State has completed construction of the first Interstellar Shipcaster!

    • The State Interstellar Shipcaster is located in the Caldari FW HQ system of Onnamon, near planet 3.

    • To enable the activation of the shipcaster, a new State Stellar Transmuter has been brought online in the nearby Elonaya system.

    • The Caldari State will begin automatically placing State Shipcaster Beacon Constructors in warzone systems to enable the construction of State Shipcaster Beacons.

      • To construct the Shipcaster Beacons in the target systems, Capsuleers can deposit Nanotransistors, Smartfab Units, Quantum Microprocessors, and Self-Harmonizing Power Cores to the Beacon Constructors. Capsuleers who deposit construction resources will be rewarded with loyalty points.

      • The Shipcaster Beacon Constructors and completed State Shipcaster Beacons are both vulnerable to attack by Capsuleers. The completed Shipcaster Beacons have a one hour reinforcement period before they can be completely destroyed to allow time for allied capsuleers to respond in defense.

    • When at least one Shipcaster Beacon is connected to the Shipcaster, it will become possible for Capsuleers enlisted with the Caldari to jump through the shipcaster.

    • The Factional Warfare map has been updated to show empire Shipcaster locations, shipcaster beacons and their current progress.


    • As they have completed their Shipcaster construction project, the Caldari state has stopped sharing sensor data that allowed the Vila Allopoiesis Nexus and Nesosilicate Rakovene Field sites in Pochven to be detected by Capsuleer scanners. Once other empires have reached the point where they can begin their shipcaster construction projects, they will activate their own scanners and the sites will return to Capsuleer scanners.

    • Added faction names to the beginning of Capsuleer Day XX seasonal challenges on the Info Panel.

    • Added a new crate - the Historic Capsuleer Day Clothing Crate - to drops from event sites. These crates contains past Capsuleer Day clothing rewards.

    Structures & Deployables:

    • Reduced the maximum broker fee tax a Upwell Citadel can charge from 50% down to 11.5%. All citadels that already had a broker fee tax rate set higher than this have automatically had their broker fee tax lowered to 11.5%. The goal of this change is to address broker fee related scams which were too obfuscated.

    Defect Fixes:


    • Reduced flickering in hangars with both anti-aliasing and depth of field enabled.

    User Interface:

    • Capsuleer Day XX Cerebral Accelerators now appear in the correct Market category.

    Patch Notes For 2023-05-03.1

    Features & Changes:


    • Readjusted the loot drop rates of genolution implants in the Capsuleer Day event. They will drop less often from data sites now, but significantly more often from the Combat Sites.

    • Reduced the volume of all "Overseer's Personal Effects" items in the game from 10m3 to 0.1m3.


    • Caldari-aligned capsuleers have been making significant progress with the production and delivery of Mutadaptive Construction Components to assist the State Shipcaster and Stellar Transmuter construction projects. Major progress in the construction is now visible at the construction sites in both Onnamon and Elonaya.

    Defect Fixes:


    • Reduced blurriness related to antialiasing during camera movement.

    Patch Notes For 2023-05-02.2

    Defect Fixes:


    • Fixed a number of issues with the new Metamorphosis ship.

    • Fixed a bug that had prevented interaction with the new Caldari station in Onnamon.

    • Fixed a number of issues which unintentionally increased the difficulty of some of the Capsuleer Day combat sites, and sometimes meant that SoCT easy sites were unable to be completed.

    Patch Notes For 2023-05-02.1

    Features & Changes:


    The Capsuleer Day XX event has begun! Join us in celebrating EVE Online's 20th anniversary from today until downtime on May 30th with a special login and seasonal campaign.

    • The Guristas and Angel Cartel have teamed up as the Guri Malakim and appear to be focused on obtaining and acquiring ancient Jovian technology. The mysterious Society of Conscious Thought are opposing them in an effort to prevent ancient technology from falling into the hands of criminal organizations.

      • Capsuleers can choose to assist either the Society of Conscious Thought or the Guri Malakim in this event to earn extra rewards through The Agency reward track.

      • Guri Malakim Survey Expedition and SoCT Survey Outpost hacking sites can be found all throughout High-security space using scanning probes. A Data Analyzer module will need to be fitted to access the valuable treasures housed within.

      • More daring capsuleers can find the Guri Malakim Raiding Expeditions and SoCT Retrievals Repository hacking sites in Low-security space, Nullsec, Pochven and Wormhole space for a tougher hacking challenge and higher rewards.

      • Guri Malakim Survey Base and SoCT Survey Expeditions combat sites are appearing all over high-security space. These sites can be found using your built-in anomaly scanner. The acceleration gates used to enter these sites will only allow access to ships of Battlecruiser size or lower, so it's recommended to bring Combat Battlecruisers to defeat the hostiles inside. Faction Cruisers, Heavy Assault Cruisers, Strategic Cruisers, and Command Ships are also excellent options when available.

      • Guri Malakim Raider Base and SoCT Retrieval Expeditions can be found in Low-security space, Nullsec,  Pochven and Wormhole space. These more difficult combat sites are home to bigger rewards, but a much greater challenge! A very well fitted Command Ship or Tech 3 Cruiser is recommend for these sites, or inviting your friends to the raiding party.

      • Players who choose to raid Guri Malakim sites can find valuable Smuggler Lockboxes which can be sold to the Empires in NPC stations for rewards, Guri Malakim Boosters, Agency Boosters, SKINs and more, while the SoCT sites contain personal overseer effects, SoCT Boosters and more of the above.

    • Until 30 May a special set of Capsuleer Day login rewards will be available for players who log on. Rewards include new SKINs, up to 510k skillpoints, limited time combat boosters, a set of Society of Conscious Thought starship hulls: the Apotheosis Shuttle, Sunesis Destroyer, Gnosis Battlecruiser, Praxis Battleship and the brand-new exploration frigate the Metamorphosis!

    • The loot drop rate for all player ships and POS's has been increased from 50% to 75%.

    Make sure you're Omega on 6 May and etch your legacy on the EVE Monument!


    The Society of Conscious Thought have introduced a new exploration frigate to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the capsuleer age.




    • The Caldari Navy has completed major construction on their new station in the Caldari Factional Warfare headquarters system of Onnamon. This station is now open to docking by capsuleers and most services are active, however there is some remaining construction work required before the capsuleer corporation office slots and industry facilities come online.

    Patch Notes For 2023-04-27.1

    Defect Fixes:


    • Vila Skarbnik NPCs in the Shadow War Pochven sites should no longer rarely give standing hits to the Triglavian collective.

    Patch Notes For 2023-04-26.1

    Features & Changes:


    The Caldari State has completed the research phase of their shadow war effort, and can now begin work on the construction of an Interstellar Shipcaster.

    • Mutadaptive Construction Components have been identified as essential materials needed for the construction of an Interstellar Shipcaster. Blueprints for these components are often stored by Triglavian-controlled rogue drones in Vila Allopoiesis Nexus', which can be found throughout Pochven using onboard anomaly scanners. Capsuleers can attempt to access the nodes the rogue drones use as temporary stockpiles with Data Analyzer modules.

    • Nesosilicate Rakovene ore can be mined in Nesosilicate Rakovene Fields found throughout Pochven and refined for quantities of Neo-Jadarite minerals, which are fundamental to the construction of Mutadaptive Components, small amounts of Neo-Jadarite can also be retrieved from Vila Allopoiesis Nodes.

    • Capsuleers should be prepared - Vila Skarbnik drones patrol both sites and will attack interlopers, and both sites will broadcast their locations to all ships in the solar system through the overview when a capsuleer warps to the site.

    • The Caldari State will reward players who bring Mutadaptive Construction Components to their component deposit yards located in the State Shipcaster Construction Site in Onnamon, and the State Stellar Construction Site in Elonaya.

    Defect Fixes:


    • Gallente Shadow War sites will now correctly drop loot.

    Patch Notes For 2023-04-25.1

    Features & Changes:


    The Gallente Federations Shadow War research effort is advancing and the federation has reached a major breakthrough in its understanding and mastery of the Stellar Transmuter technology thanks to the efforts of loyalist capsuleers.

    • As a result, Gallente Data Sites, Laboratories, and Classified Couriers are now active in lowsec systems controlled by the Gallente Federation in factional warfare, as well as the highsec systems in the Kiartanne and Viriette constellations. These sites will contain stellar transmuter datacore blueprints and materials.

    • Players who choose to side with the Caldari for their shadow war effort will now earn progression points for entering and completing the Gallente sites.


    • Anti-aliasing has been upgraded. You will see smoother edges and the elimination of specular aliasing, which eliminates the 'shiny' effect that occurs in some situations.

    • The shadow system has been entirely overhauled. Previously, there was a limit of 16 shadows in a scene, for casting and receiving. Shadows also look much sharper, and there is now no limit!

    • The film grain effect has been refactored, reducing the 'grid' pattern that would sometimes be visible.

    Defect Fixes:


    • Overlapping music related to various combat sites is no longer resumed upon entering additional combat sites.


    • The station hangar should no longer turn green when displaying a specific advert. The rave is over.


    • Fixed a client crash, which could be triggered by the graphical effects of Vorton Projectors.

    • Mac client: Fixed a rare client crash.

    Patch Notes For 2023-03-14.1

    Features & Changes:


    A brand new Factional Campaign has launched - The Shipcaster Shadow War

    Capsuleers can choose to enlist for one of the major 4 empires in their efforts to steal technology from the other empires, master new Triglavian technology and then construct their own fully functional shipcaster.

    • Content includes Hacking, Combat, Salvaging, Mining, Industry and PVP gameplay.

    • Rewards include exclusive Penumbral Shadow ship SKINs for the faction that you choose to support, dozens of new boosters for each faction and more.

    Players can sign up for a faction using the agency.

    • You can preview the rewards for each faction before you choose to join them.

    • Your choice will not impact what future campaigns you can participate in.

    Research, Besieged Labs and Waylaid Courier sites can be found in lowsec in Factional Warfare systems controlled by each empire with their respective technology, as well as in high security space in and around the empires chosen HQ systems. Be aware, all sites will become visible on the overview when a capsuleer warps to them.

    • Research Data Node hacking sites require core scan probes to locate, and you'll need a data analyzer to access the containers. These hacking sites are limited to Navy faction and Tech 1 frigates.

    • Waylaid Courier Salvaging sites will require a player to destroy NPCs and have a fitted salvager module - due to the complexity of the encryption used for the classified courier wrecks, salvaging drones are not capable of accessing them. These salvaging sites are limited to Tech I and Faction destroyers, and Tech I, faction and Tech II frigates.

    • Besieged Research Labs will require dangerous combat. Destroy NPCs which have reinforced an empire laboratory, and once you've cleared them out, destroy the lab and take the contents for yourself -  they can be completed solo but expect a challenge, you may want to bring friends. These dangerous combat sites are limited to Tech I and Navy battlecruisers, and Tech I, faction and Tech II cruisers, and all frigates and destroyers including Tech 3 and below.

    • Steal and recover research data fragments, index files, decryption keys and datacore blueprints from these sites, manufacture datacores using the blueprints, and then turn them in to your faction for reward crates and event progression points used to unlock more rewards.

    You can turn in the datacores at laboratories which have been setup in each empire's HQ system.

    • Amarr - Mehatoor

    • Caldari - Onnamon

    • Gallente - Intaki

    • Minmatar - Amo

    Transport Relay research associated sites will be initially present in Caldari occupied factional warfare systems, and in the highsec around Onnamon - in the Aokinen and Minnen constellations

    Stellar Transmuter research associated sites will be initially present in Amarr and Minmatar occupied factional warfare systems, and also including the highsec around Mehatoor and Amo - in the Kisana, Ryra, Tiat and Ani constellations.

    • The locations of where these sites will be available will increase as each faction gains mastery over each research.

    • These sites will give ALL capsuleers a suspect timer when taking the acceleration gate into the site, so be prepared for intense PVP action.

    • Be aware that this means that legal combat can happen between otherwise friendly players, such as members of allied militias. You never know who might happen to be on someone elses payroll!

    The Construction Phase will unlock once a faction completes BOTH the relay transport and stellar transmuter research projects.

    • Once the construction phase is completed, the shipcaster will be complete!

    Factional Warfare:

    Direct Enlistment is now available. You are now able to join factional warfare militias as an individual without leaving your corporation.

    • Corporations can choose to limit which factions their members can enlist for in the enlistment whitelist which can be found under the corporation menu under the wars section.

    • To sign up, go to any station belonging the appropriate faction you wish to join, and selecting the 'enlist me' option in the factional warfare window.

    • Turret impact sound prioritization is now better calibrated during large scale battles.

    • All ships now have alliance and corporations emblems unlockable through the Paragon loyalty point store.
