Drones, Modules and Ships
  • You should now be able to scoop up drones left behind from other players.
  • Active smartbombs should no longer send an error message when dragging them between slots while activating them.
  • Smartbomb area of effect is now in proportion to the displayed effect radius. Smart bombs were left behind a moving ship and retained the orientation of the ship that deployed them.
  • Strip mining lasers will now autorepeat.
  • Passive targeting now has client-side support and should work properly.
  • Defender Missiles should not slow your ship when fired.
  • Fixed certain combat modules that did not display a range bubble in the tactical display (Warp scramblers, Neutralizers etc.)
  • An issue where module fitting would cause the module to use its unmodified power cost, rather than the cost reduced by skills and other modifiers.
  • Autorepeat is now ON by default.
  • Ships undocking from a Starbase Ship Maintenance Array now align themselves with the forcefield harmonics and are no longer ejected far outside the forcefield.
  • Using an Afterburner or a MicroWarpDrive that has a thrust bigger than the mass of your ship will not work as well as before. A ship fitted with too large a module will take longer to climb to maximum velocity and maneuverability will decrease.
  • Afterburners have been given a speed boost increase when the module is activated, the boost is now up to three times more than before. Afterburner capacitor need for activation and power requirement for fitting has been increased as a balancing factor. Afterburners are also limited to one pr. ship like Microwarpdrives are.
  • Modulated Deep Core Miner II's and Strip Miner II's are now available from research agents.
  • The ranges of various scanner modules have been increased. For example, cargo scanners now have a 50KM range and can be used in Deadspace and Belt pirate hunting to check loot cans for phatness. Survey scanners have range equal to most miners. Ship scanners range has been increased to 50Km, thus increasing their ability to analyze enemy ship fittings.
  • Rounding errors caused by numerous attempts to warp with less than full capacitor were preventing a player from warping at all. This has been resolved.
Agents and Missions
  • The ratio of Deadspace missions versus normal missions given by agents has been adjusted.
  • Some agents were hardcoded at level 1, this has been fixed.
  • Level 3 agents will no longer send players to level 1 storyline agents.
  • Agent standing bonus given after mission completion has been adjusted, some were giving the same for all missions.
  • It is no longer possible to complete a mission in space. You must talk to the agent to complete the mission.
  • Some pirate storyline mission destinations were over 50 jumps. These have been reduced.
  • Agent offer dialogs have been modified to reduce confusion. It is now possible to view the offer information before accepting or declining.
  • It shouldn't be possible to accept an offer from an agent you don't have standings to talk to.
  • If a courier mission involves a Conquerable Station, a warning popup will be sent to anyone accepting the mission.
  • Agent rewards calculations have been adjusted. Some missions will have increased rewards in ISK and Loyalty Points while others might have less.
  • Some Agent Offers have been adjusted based on Loyalty Point accumulation. This is most notable with Faction ship offers and Implant offers.
  • Some agent offers now include mining crystals.
  • Ancient Acceleration Gates should limit access according to ship class restrictions. A new pop-up message will display valid ship classes when activating the gate.
Corporations, Alliances and Gangs
  • Notifications for issuing changes to votes or sanctioned actions will now be sent to shareholders, including those that are not corporation members.

  • Alliances can now set relationship standings to other alliances.

  • A Corporation in Alliance can resign from the alliance without being the Executor.
  • War type detection and start-up cost calculation have been fixed.

  • Fixed a rare case which usually ended with rendering a market region useless for the duration of the uptime.
  • Market Escrow 'Total' & 'What's Left' amounts are now shown in the Wallet.
  • Fixed the transaction tax, it was not levied for any sales.
  • Market history graph should no longer chop of left price numbers.
