Not all mentioned features are available yet. DirectX12 and the new agent conversation window for career agents will be enabled at a later point.
Please post any general feedback regarding the changes in this thread, if there is no other forum thread available. Please send bug reports from ingame through F12 - Report Bug (and please include screenshots for graphical issues). For changes to the PhotonUI, please check the Photon UI - EVE Online Forums channel - there is also a thread for the compact mode.
For the texture compression changes we are aware of some edge cases, where textures are not showing as expected. Please feel free to still send bug reports about such issues, so we do not miss some of those edge cases.
Radial menu appears broken when in a fleet, only your own ship in space has a working radial menu. All other radial menus play the open/close sound effect, and reset your cursor to the center of the screen when released, but display no graphic and issue no commands. When not in a fleet, this behavior is not observed, and radial menus appear to function normally.
Not a fan of the red background and lack of details on the ship for the fitting window in simulation mode. I don’t see why this is considered an improvement, and why it was felt like a need for development.
Is the perma-blinky necessary? If I hover the button, would be nice if it would stop blinking. Your point was to make me aware of the undock button, ok, it works, I saw it. Now, turn it off please, I don’t need to undock just now.
Edit: ok, got it, enhance visual all over the place, probably specific to career missions only (hopefully), I will need to check if it does that to regular missions too. If it is only for career missions I guess that is fine.
No, please no! This is not enhanced graphics, the “dungeon” is in some cloud now, and it feels like my screen is dirty big time. Not pretty at all (Cahsflow 6 of 10). I hope you didn’t destroyed all the missions like this
Does that also include the radial menu bug? I had that happen using the Carbon UI, no idea if that bug occours using the Photon UI.
Btw, what do you think of adding stars to the Abyssal deadspace skyboxes?
I think this would look a lot better if there were stars in the Abyss. Right now its just a nebula and blank space. Some of them look more like a mountain scenery than a space scenery without stars.
@CCP_Habakuk thought as much, I’d have done more but I spent all of today doing QA at work While I was looking around on SISI I noticed some of the SOF bugs from the current client have been fixed too, thanks for that.
For the blinkies (guidance highlights): in retrospect, it probably is totally “as intented”. Though it currently is only for the Enforcer career agents’ missions (Cash Flow for Capsuleers), as mentioned in the news page (date June 2nd) (though the Exploration career agents is probably the one that needs the guidance highlights the most…). And the blinkies starts only when the Enforcer mission is expanded on the left side of the screen. If i minimize it, all the blinkies shut off. Even when I’m in the mission pocket : if I minimize the Enforcer mission panel while in space with the rats, the blinkies to kill them will shut off. Seems fine (and clever) in that regard.
Enforcer is expanded while in station → Undock will blink
I assume you (CCP) will add them to all career agents eventually. At that point, players who’ll want to accept multiple career missions at the same time to complete them in one trip might find it a bit overwhelming or tiresome.
So, I won’t open a bug for that as it seems to be as intented and works fine in that regard. I’ll will just leave it here as a feedback. An option to easily activate/deactivate that feature would be welcomed.
So far, I don’t see the blinkies for any regular NPC agents (and clearly it has no place with the regular NPC agents). So all good there.
