    Shuttles and Capsules now have a 90% reduction to effective distance traveled for jump fatigue accrual.
    Structures & Deployables:

    Following a cynosural jump, ships are delayed from tethering by 30 seconds. The tethering delay does NOT impact docking. This tethering delay applies to all cynosural jumps, including normal capital jumping, black ops jumping, and to ships being bridged (it does not affect the ship that opens up the bridge and stays at the origin point). The 30 second countdown begins once the ship loses its post-jump invulnerability (either by manually moving or after 60s). The ship's tether-block timer will be shown in the buff bar UI.
    The standard 30 second station undocking invulnerability now also applies to Upwell Structures. As with stations, this invulnerability is broken if a target is locked, a module is activated or any action is taken to move your ship.
    It is now possible to lock blueprints in corporation hangars within Upwell structures

    Added a few characters that may be used in structure names. Structures may now include the following characters in their name:

    A to Z
    a to z
    0 to 9

    $#%&'()*+,-.
    Added visual FX that are played on a structure when is it succesfully completes a repair cycle, or when it is successfully reinforced.
    Structures in Low Power mode will now display reduced docking traffic, exteriors lights, and holograms.
    Corporations may now set their default reinforcement hour/weekday. This will be used when anchoring a new structure (but does not affect structures already in space). Editing this setting requires a character to have the Station Manager corporation role. In the Structure Browser UI, go to "My Structures" tab. Select "Any Profile" from the profile list. Go to the "Corporation Settings" tab

    Technical:

    EVE Voice has been removed

    User Interface:

    Added a '?' icon next to the standing value in the Standings section of the Character Sheet. Hovering this will now show the tooltip for Standings.
    Added the Standings tooltip when hovering all entries in the Faction/Corporation/Agent section of the Standings tab in the Character Sheet.
    The Fleet watchlist window now has colour coding
    The Targeting bracket on Fleet mates is purple (the fleet color) rather than yellow
    Text for broadcasts for reps now include what ship type the broadcast came from
    Fleet tags are now displayed on the targets in the target bar
    It is now possible to remove a Fleet tags (from whatever was tagged before)
    The results from ship scans are now organized by slots
    The Show Info window for a solarsystem now has a special tab for structures in the system. Please note that like before, it only lists those structures you have docking access at.
    The HQ listed in Show Info windows for corporation will now be a link
    A tooltip has been added to the standing icon in the show info window to show what that icon is based on (player to player, player to corp, alliance to corp etc).
    If your security status is -2 or lower, the tooltip on your security status in the Character sheet will tell you in which systems the faction police will attack
    There’s now an option to have the Compare tool only list those attributes that differ for the items currently being compared
    The height of the “Duration” drop down in market orders have been increased, so all entries fit without scrolling
    The Salvage option for salvage drones has been moved to the top of the right click menu
    Volume information has been added to the “material input” and “output” tooltips in the Industry window
    The right click options that have been categorized as potentially especially destructive will now have a red ! in front of them. Among other things, we hope this helps to make it easier to differentiate between “Reprocess” and “Repackage”
    Added a "Open Jump Navigation" option when right clicking on the Ship HUD of a jump capable ship.
    The selected item window and jump shortcut now work for Jump Bridges.
    Added a visual display of the 30 second invulnerability timer recieved when changing location (undocking or jumping to a cynosural field)

    Defects & Fixes
    Drones & Fighters:

    Fighters can now be repackaged.

    Gameplay:

    When switching ammo types, charges will now always be placed into an existing stack of the same ammo type where possible.
    Fixed an issue where applying a corporate insurance contract to a ship with an existing insurance policy would lead to the cost being paid, refunded and paid again.
    Fixed an issue where the "Federation Navy Sensor Booster" had a 10 second reload time instead of 0.

    Graphics:

    Adjusted the distance at which the Osprey hull model switches level of detail.
    Fixed an issue that could lead to rendering issues in character customization screen.
    Corrected an issue with floating damage locations on the Mobile Cynosural Inhibitor.
    Fixed an issue where the Medium Jump Drive visual effect could clip through some ships.

    PvE:

    NPE: Changed some of the text in the first industry career mission so that it is clearer for new players.
    NPE: Fixed the mission text for Gallente Advanced Military 7 of 10 so that it no longer references the Drones skillbook as a reward.
    NPE: Fixed mission texts for Career Military 5 of 10 so that it is the same for all 4 empires.
    NPE: A passkey issue with the acceleration gate in the 5th exploration career mission has been fixed. The passkey itself has also been renamed so that it is clearer what it is when viewed in the default inventory view (where its name is often truncated).
    Fixed an issue with the level 5 mission "Lights Out" so that it cannot be broken with high one-shot DPS.
    Fixed a mission completion issue in the Unauthorized Military Presence mission.
    Fixed mission text in Advanced Military 4 of 10 so that it no longer mentions "remote ECCM".
    Fixed grammar issues in various mission texts.
    Fixed a completion issue in the 'Gate to Nowhere' and 'Minmatar Plot (1 of 3)' missions, and re-enabled the missions.

    Science & Industry:

    The jobs tab of the industry window will now display a loading icon when necessary.
    Ice Harvesting Drone II Blueprints and Moon Ore Mining Crystals II Blueprints now will correctly appear under Tech II.

    Structures & Deployables:

    Contracts located in unanchored or destroyed Upwell structures are now cancelled correctly.
    Fixed an issue where Decommissioning an Upwell Structure while docked in an NPC station would fail.

    User Interface:

    Fixed the contextual menu when choosing what cargohold to track so that the list of trackable bays is properly alphabetized.
    Fixed alignment of icons in Tutorial Videos panel.
    Fixed an issue causing duplicate confirmation windows to appear when changing UI scaling.
    Fixed incorrect sizing of hovered empire seals in Empire Selection view after transitioning from windowed to full screen client.
    Removed the SKINs filter category under accessories for item filters.
    Fixed an issue where the inventory window would open if a corp office is rented or unrented.
    When a kill right against you has its availability changed, its display in your character sheet now updates & you receive a notification about this straight away instead of after relogging.
    Improved clarity of attributes (Capacitor Need Bonus) for High Speed Maneuvering and implants using this skill.
    The "Broadcast Radial Menu" shortcut now works when assigned to a mouse button
    When failing to assign a new shortcut due to the button being already in use, the set shortcut window reopens automatically so a new shortcut can be chosen
    Fixed an issue where there was no difference between the "Set Name" options for an Upwell Structure or a jump clone when right clicking on an existing jump clone in the Character tab of the Character Sheet.
    Mining Upgrade skill and implants now display the CPU Penalty Reduction bonus in the Attributes tab.
    Fixed an issue where tags on brackets in space could become fixed at a single point on the UI.
    The "Too many Blueprints to display" message is now correctly shown at 25k blueprints not 10k.
    Added Arkonor ore in the description of Mexallon.
    The state column in the Structure Browser now shows an icon and tooltip for anchoring structures.
    Stacks of drones in a ships drone bay are now correctly counted when calculating the estimated value of a ship.
    Selecting "Simulate Ship" from a show info window of your own ship now correctly simulates its current fit instead of only the hull.
    The tooltips for fitted rigs no longer incorrectly refers to them as modules.
    Fixed an issue where the 'Subsystem Hold Capacity' tooltip for T3 Cruisers was referring to 'corpses', instead of 'subsystems'.
    Fixed a text issue in "Proteus Module: Covert Reconfiguration", where the Structure Hit Points were refered to as Armor Hit Points
    Switching the incorrect "Sensor Dampening" characteristic to the correct "Small" characteristic on the Chremoas

    Confirming not daring to log in while there's a chance they fix things in the coming days to not lose passworded channels authentication. Fuck having to try remember the passwords to such things just to continue business as usual.

    Also shouldn't the true patch notes read: local is now in delayed mode everywhere, and ratting bounties no longer pay out? We w-space now bois.

    Mother of all that is holy that would be one hell of a step in the right direction. Is there some kind of issue with local right now? At least not the way it normally functions?

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    J'ai violé votre vaisseau spatial. C'était amusant....!

    EVE once was about internet spaceships. Then those became serious business.
    Now all that is left is serious business, and spaceships are docked for two years till after the Dust of Incarna
