Fanfest 2017
Fanfest 2017 - April 6-8
Only 33 days till Fanfest 2017! We have more information about this epic EVE celebration. Michel Mayor, world famous for his exoplanet research, is one of the speakers! Enjoy the spectacle either in person or via the live broadcasts.


Next release on March 14
Feature overview
Only 13 days until the March release! This release brings a good amount of improvements and changes. Check out the links below. Test the features on the test server Singularity.

* Mining Drone Specialization skill and T2 Mining Drones
* Structure, Drone & Fighter improvements
* Mobile Warp Disruptor decay
* Rorqual and Mining changes
* New Interface for probe and directional scanning
* Focused Warp Scrambling Script
* Fighters, Supercarriers & Burst Projectors
* Total Net Worth counter

Please report all bugs!

Total Net Worth counter
We are adding a new counter to the character sheet. This counter shows the total net worth of all your assets. This includes: wallet balance, asset net worth (estimated), contract escrow, and market escrow.

Rorqual mining? Still feasible
We are changing the Rorqual with the March release. Does that mean that the Rorqual will be useless for mining? Not at all! It will be still the best ship for mining, by far.

Rorqual and PANIC
CCP Fozzie explains in depth the 3 main use cases for the PANIC module on the Rorqual. This information is useful to understand the coming changes (PANIC can be only activated if an asteroid is locked).

Changes to Rorqual QA
There are a lot of questions around the revamp of the Rorqual. Check out this excellent overview by CCP Fozzie! He answers many questions and explains the reasons for this change.


Game development
Drilling platforms, moon mining revamp?
Revamping moon mining and introducing drilling platforms is big! This revamp needs to be done properly. We have a rough internal roadmap, but nothing we can share yet. Get more info about this in the CSM meeting minutes.

Total net worth counter for corporations?
We get a net worth counter with the next release (March 14). This counter shows the total net worth your character owns. Currently we focus on development of this feature. There are no plans (yet) to have such a feature for corporations.


Issues and troubleshooting
Consult the help center!
If you are encountering technical issues, then please check out the EVE Online help center. We have a lot of helpful articles. Maybe you can quickly resolve an issue yourself!

Verifying/updating game files
Do you need to verify/update the files for the EVE Online client? Then please use the option in the EVE Launcher! Go to the E menu in the top right corner of the launcher. Select "Shared Cache" and "Verify" to check the game files.


Various
Data for drone mining?
You can see the amount of ore mined in EVE in the Monthly Economic Reports. Ore mined by drones is, at the moment, not included in these reports. CCP Fozzie explains that this information is available internally. It is not an unknown to game design.

You forgot to add CCP's breaking up with Nexon and dropping Japanese language support for the EVE online client.

Ok, seriously... While I love CCP and the game... We really have to say so badly that we thanks if they care with the game what we paid for? We can say thanks for many things, like when they give us a new permaband music, or when they give SP for the time when you was paid but not learn, etc... But for do their job? Bah...

How much does it cost to maintain the Japanese language support versus how much revenue do the Japanese customers provide?


Extrapolate this into the near future:


How much does it cost to maintain the alpha clones support versus how much revenue do these non subbed customers provide ?

Drilling Platforms.

Is there going to be a new look for each Moon that has a certain percentage of material harvested from it?

Is it going to be possible to fracture a Moon due to drilling that would render the Moon materials more accessible throught mining barge operations?

Is there goingredients to be a damage counter for each Moon that has been mined much like there are warnings for a wormhole answer how many ships have passed through It?


There has to be a natural disaster risk factor involved with Moon mining much just like there is a risk factor of jumping into a wormhole.

Moon mining should have a two to one risk factor versus wealth which would be pvpe and enjoy environment versus the Capsuleer.
