EVE Online: Trinity Known Issues E-mail
Monday, 10 December 2007
Until now Trinity, the newest game expansion for EVE Online, has received many praises both from veteran and new players. It is not common at all that a MMORPG developer decides that it is worth to invest into updating the Graphical engine and redesigning 70% of the game graphics instead than just putting all that time and money into a new game, and this gives a clear idea on how serious is CCP about the long term projects for EVE.
But as usual, the bigger the updates are, the longest the issue lists. So, forgetting for once the boot.ini issue that has been covered sufficiently by the other MMORPG websites, let's see what others are the known problems that came after the deployment of Trinity, while waiting, as usual, for a bugfixing patch.

EVE: Trinity Known Issues

The list below is the current list of known issues as of 6th December 2007.
Build 45017


  • Some graphical effects persist after a ship is destroyed. This is only visible to the pilot of the destroyed ship.
  • When cloaking, a ship's turrets do not fade out, but 'snap' into and out of existence.
  • Capital ships are affected by NPC EW.
  • The Guardian Vexor temporarily loses his drone bonus if stored in a ship maintenance array or in a ship maintenance bay, ejecting and boarding the ship should fix this.
  • A graphical error exists in the title of the fitting screen when used with the Augoror Navy Issue.
  • Ships do not always emerge at the correct angle when undocking.
  • Boarding a ship in space may occasionally result in the player becoming stuck. Please file a petition about this since we need as much information as possible.
  • When docked inside certain stations, the Naglfar is taller than the station allows for. They just build them bigger in Minmatar space.
  • The centre point of the Hulk is misplaced.
  • One of the fins on the Malediction ship model is misaligned.
  • There is a display glitch that can cause your cargo hold to display as having 1m3 space remaining, when it is in fact full.


  • There is no obvious graphical effect when activating an afterburner.
  • Interdictor warp disrupt probes do not interrupt warps that have already been started.
  • Logging off while having a cloaking module active may result in your ship not initiating emergency warp.
  • The graphical effect for sensor dampeners displays in the opposite direction to the target.
  • The range of ECM bursts is not affected by the Frequency Modulation skill.
  • A graphics effect is needed for the salvager.
  • Warning that pops up when fitting rigs does not mention that fitted rigs will also be destroyed if the ship is repackaged.

  • The salvage icon doesn't always appear next to the locked target you are using it on.

  • Ice Miners do not deactivate when the mining ship’s cargo hold is full.

  • Cynosural Field Generator Is incorrectly report that a player is warp scrambled when they are active.

  • When modules that have the Reactivation Delay are activated there is no visual indication as to when the reactivation delay timer ends.
  • The resistance bonus of Hakim's modified explosion dampening amplifier seems a bit underpowered compared to the tech 2 version.

  • Activating Remote Repairing drones on a friendly (non corp.) player in high security causes an aggression warning to pop up, however there is (correctly) no concord response.

  • If you leave the game while in a complex, the timer for whether you warp back to your location or to the beginning of the complex is too short.

  • There have been reports of Security Agents handing out mining missions when they shouldn't.
