EVE: Trinity Features, Improvements and Balance Changes

New Player Experience

Context Help
In most windows, a small question mark “?” will be visible in the top right corner. Within, players have access to knowledgebase articles based on the window they are in, or even more detailed depending on the tab, or function they are focused on.

Tip of the day
On the character selection screen, tip of the day has been placed. Filled with general know-how and tidbits that might be common knowledge to some, but breaking news to others. A tip is selected on random from the database and displayed, with options of randomizing again or flipping back and forth.

New Tutorials
With Trinity arrive 3 new tutorials, each focusing on different features. They will look at Exploration, Heat and salvaging. If you haven’t tried out said features, the tutorials will help you get started with those and teach you the basics.

Corporate Registry

With corporate registry, corporations have an easier way to advertise themselves to players in hope of recruiting. Players have an easily accessible database which they can go through to find the corporation of their dreams.
  • Region wide advertisements, with no limit to number of adverts,
  • Unlimited search capabilities from region to region,
  • Increased visibility of all corporations wanting to heighten their corporate profile.

Tech 2 ships

Electronic Attack Ships
The electronic attack ships are essentially frigate equivalents of the combat recons. While they are somewhat lacking in EW capabilities and firepower compared to the combat recons, they should nevertheless not be under estimated. Their frigate class sensors give them first strike capability and enable them to disable enemy ships before they have a chance to lock. With the mobility of frigate hulls they are valuable assets for roaming frigate gangs.

  • Sentinel (Amarr)
  • Kitsune (Caldari)
  • Keres (Gallente)
  • Hyena (Minmatar)

Heavy interdictors
Heavy interdictors are cruiser equivalents of the destroyer based interdictors, which combine area of effect warp disruption with the tanking capabilities of Heavy Assault Ships. Rather than using warp disrupt probes, the heavy interdictors use a module, the Warp Disruption Field Generator, which prevents all ships within its range from warping or jumping (including the heavy interdictor itself). While having the warp disruption field generator on a heavily tanked ship makes it more resilient, it also comes with some drawbacks. When activated the warp disruption field generator prevents remote assistance, increases the signature radius of the ship and reduces the effectiveness of afterburners and microwarpdrives. The agility is however effectively increased: the mass of the ship and the thrust of afterburners and microwarpdrives is significantly decreased (the thrust reduction cancels out the mass reductions in terms of speed boost). This effective increase in agility means that heavy interdictors flying at high speeds will slow down very fast once the warp disruption field generator is activated.

  • Devoter (Amarr)
  • Onyx (Caldari)
  • Phobos (Gallente)
  • Broadsword (Minmatar)

Black Ops
The Black Ops specialize in infiltration and covert operation. Equipped with a jump drive, they can jump short distances past enemy blockades. Covert Ops, Stealth Bombers and Force Recons (not Combat Recons) have been upgraded to support Covert Cynosural Field Generators. These new modules are advanced Cynosural Field Generators that cannot be detected and only Black Ops can lock on to. What makes the Black Ops in particular dangerous is that they can use miniaturized jump portal generators, Covert Jump Portal Generators, to sneak allied forces behind enemy lines. However the covert jump portal technology is rather limited compared to the Titan class jump portals and require support from the ships that jump through to work correctly. Covert jump portal generators can only bridge for ships with Jump Harmonics 2 or above. The covert tech 2 ships: Covert Ops, Stealth Bombers and Force Recons have been upgraded to this end. The resource consumption on the Black Ops jump drives and the Covert Jump Portal Generator is very high, so jump fuel logistics are a concern. Fortunately the Black Ops can also use ordinary jump gates and can thus save jump fuel for when it really matters.

  • Redeemer (Amarr)
  • Widow (Caldari)
  • Sin (Gallente)
  • Panther (Minmatar)

Marauders
Marauders are heavy battleships focusing primarily on attrition and deployment for longer periods of time. While their number of hardpoints is limited to just 4, they also receive a 100% damage bonus to their primary weapon type. This has a number of advantages: the remaining high slots are available for other tasks, weapon capacitor need and munitions consumption rates are also reduced. Featuring large cargo holds they have plenty of storage for capacitor boosters or spoils of war. The sensors have been optimized for locking up to 10 targets at a time, but with sensor strengths comparable to cruisers the Marauders can be jammed quite easily if they are not hardened with ECCM.

  • Paladin (Amarr)
  • Golem (Caldari)
  • Kronos (Gallente)
  • Vargur (Minmatar)

Jump Freighters
Jump freighters are the latest generation of freighter. They are based upon their tech one counterparts but with significant enhancements. They are faster and more agile, with a larger capacitor. The main change however, is a large portion of the cargo bay has been taken over by a capital class jump drive, the same type used in carriers, dreadnaughts, motherships and titans. This means that whilst the ship has around one third of the cargo capacity, it is capable of jumping between systems without the use of stargates. These ships still retain the ability to use normal stargates, and can be constructed in high security space.

  • Anshar (Gallente)
  • Ark (Amarr)
  • Nomad (Minmatar)
  • Rhea (Caldari)

ARM Scripts

ARM Scripts are non-consumable charges that modify the attributes of the module they are installed in. They are installed/uninstalled just like loading/unloading ammo. The modules that can be scripted are listed below followed by the script names in brackets.
  • Sensor boosters (Targeting Range and Scan Resolution)
  • Remote sensor boosters (uses the same ARM scripts as sensor boosters)
  • Remote sensor dampeners (Targeting Range Dampening and Scan Resolution Dampening)
  • Tracking computers (Optimal Range and Tracking Speed)
  • Tracking links (uses the same ARM scripts as tracking computers)
  • Tracking disruptors (Optimal Range Disruption and Tracking Speed Disruption)
  • Warp Disruption Field Generators (Focused Warp Disruption)
The scriptable modules have also been modified to accommodate the ARM scripts. In order to get the maximum benefit from e.g. a sensor booster one has to choose between boosting either targeting range or scan resolution. This applies to all the scriptable modules in general (except for the Warp Disruption Field Generator): one can get the same effect as before, but one has to choose between the two bonuses.
  • Bonuses to the above scriptable modules now apply to percentage bonuses rather than multipliers
  • Remote sensor dampeners have been reduced in effectiveness
  • Remote sensor boosters and tracking links have had their effectiveness enhanced
  • The tracking link bonuses on the Oneiros and the Scimitar have been increased to 10%
  • Information Warfare Link - Electronic Superiority now has different bonuses to different type of electronic warfare:
    • ECM and target painters: 2%
    • Remote sensor dampeners and tracking disruptors: 1.2%

Bandwidth

Drone bandwidth is a new additional constraint on drones which limits the drones that can be deployed. Each ship has an available bandwidth for controlling drones that all deployed drones must share. Every drone has a bandwidth requirement which must be available on the controlling ship when launching the drone. Once launched, the bandwidth required by the drone is reserved for that drone and not available to other drones. Bandwidth is reclaimed once the drone returns to the drone bay or control of the drone is lost. With bandwidth the damage output from drones can be limited while still allowing for spare drones. Drone bandwidth requirements:
  • light drones: 5Mbit/s
  • medium drones: 10Mbit/s
  • heavy drones: 25Mbit/s
Ship bandwidth:
  • Frigates: 0-25Mbit/s
  • Destroyers: 0-25Mbit/s
  • Cruisers: 0-50Mbit/s
  • Battlecruisers: 25-75Mbit/s
  • Battleships: 75-125Mbit/s
Exceptions for drone ships:
  • Ishkur: 25Mbit/s bandwidth, 25m3 + 5m3/level drone bay
  • Vexor: 75Mbit/s bandwidth, 100m3 dronebay
  • Ishtar: 125Mbit/s bandwidth, no change in dronebay
  • Arbitrator, Curse, Pilgrim: 50 Mbit/s bandwidth, 150m3 dronebay
  • Myrmidon: 75Mbit/s bandwidth, 150m3 dronebay
  • Eos: 75Mbit/s bandwidth, 150m3 + 15m3/level dronebay

Missions, Dungeons and NPCs

Missions are a vital part of EVE's Player versus Environment experience. Over 140 missions are a part of the EVE: Trinity expansion, including new Mining/Harvesting, Mega-courier, New Player Experience, and Story Arcs for Empire and Faction agents. Also part of the expansion are 50 more exploration sites, balance changes, improvements to NPCs and their equipment and other features are being added.

  • The activation cost of Gang warfare modules has been reduced from 50 to 25.
  • Meta level 1 to 4 shield boosters now have the same duration as tech 1 shield boosters (meta level 0). Shield boost amount and capacitor need have been adjusted: The efficiency has been increased by +12.5% and the boost rate has been increased up to +12.5% for meta level 0 down to -10% for meta level 4. This ensures that the increase in boost rate and efficiency between tech 1 and tech 2 is in line with the values for armor repairers.
  • The Industrial Core and Capital Tractor Beam modules have been restricted to fit only to Capital Industrial Hulls, the CPU has been lowered to 100 and CPU bonus effect has been removed from the Rorqual.

Science and Industry
