It was getting a bit empty between Apocrypha and the winter expansion, to fill the void we decided to release a mini-expansion which t0rfifrans introduces in his dev blog: Apocrypha 1.5 this August. Enjoy reading about rigs, missions and much more. Smile

Good stuff about rigs.

Hopefully the fleet-fight turret lag problem fix will be among the "considerable amount of fixes and polish coming out from this work".

Will we get faction war LP points retroactively, since those kill/capture statistics are nicely collected to militia office?

What about retired militia people? Can they still use LP stores?

Awsome

Also, protip:
don't make the epic arches send you thru lowsec, scanning does atm allow you to locate people to easily, and forcing everyone thru the same systems is like leting a hungry dog into a sausage-factory

The FW bit sounds like it's going to be awesome!

(I hope it will be... Very Happy)

But does that mean Walking In Stations won't be out this year, as promised at fanfest?

So does this mean that capital ships will be getting a dedicated fuel bay? Be really nifty if so...

The blog seems to be pretty clear on this: "it is focused on sovereignty and you will not be able to walk in it".

I genuinely hope something is done about the FW plexes only respawning during downtime. It's already hard enough to find a plex 2 hours after DT, adding an LP incentive to capping them will make it literally impossible for those of us who aren't Russian or Australian.

Please consider this when making these changes.

Sized rigs are very exciting, it'll add a whole new depth to fitting, since now it's rarely worthwhile to rig anything smaller than a battleship.

+1 internets to CCP!

That's all very nice, but when are you going to fix the many balance issues? I mean, I can understand taking a while for controversial things like re-balancing guns (especially as many people feel that no changes are needed), but what about the un-controversial stuff? Things like the Retribution's one mid slot, or the crippling lack of grid on the Nighthawk/Cerberus/Rook, or the fact that rockets are utterly useless?

These are things that you could fix with just a few minutes of work, and have virtually unanimous agreement that you did the right thing. So why not include them in this mini-expansion and make a lot of people happy?

I don't know about the Nighthawk, Cerb, or Rook, but leave my retribution alone! I like to play as a team and the 1 mid slot lets me go out with friends and have fun without trying to make a solopwnmobile. I know you're going to argue with me on this, but it's your personal opinion vs. mine.

Oh, an important question about the FW kill LP reward? I sure wish it does mean *player kills* as well, can anyone confirm this? (Most people seem to assume this is the case)

Eploit prevention should be easy. Make the cost low enough to make alt-farming impossible and/ or limit LP rewards to once per DT per killing one character...

Current schedule is as follows:

Early 2010 expansion: walking in stations is announced and put on Sisi. After 230984 issues with stability, the servers crashing, bad graphics, etc. they pull it from that expansion and delay the release. They do address mining though, which makes 10% of the playerbase rejoice and 90% roll their eyes.

Late 2010 expansion: Walking in stations is actually released, albeit with a ton of constraints. No more than 40 people per room and stations are "full" after 400. Regardless of these limitations, 5000 "hardcore" players emo rage quit and 60,000 lolWoWN00bs take their place. The next QED is also released at this time.

Early 2011 expansion: almost no features, but stability on walking in stations is boosted a huge amount. Most limitations are removed and hundreds of players spend hours making their female characters dance in the station. Many players are annoyed at the lack of other "useful" changes and quit, but subscriptions increase again. Minmatar rejoice though, because their battleships stop sucking in this expansion.

the new rigs add a new problem also.
we need a dedicated ship hauler. give it 1million m3 of space for ships and a small cargo bay. orca costs or cheaper would be nice

How will you prevent players from fitting the small rigs on larger shipclasses like Cruisers, BC, BS, etc?

So with the mini expansion titled Apocrypha 1.5, does this imply there will be a 1.4 in the time between now and then? If so, will it include the oft delayed scanning fixes? Very Happy

PS:

Will the new rigs be just mirrors of the current ones, or will you introduce rigs that are unique to their intended ship class, i.e. range increase rigs for tackle gear (frigates only)?
