One could always look to the announcements RSS feed and see that the downtime isn't starting until 02:00 UTC (which, if in the US, that means in the evening of the 25th)... But that's probably too much to ask.

The announcement RSS entry:

Here's a reference for UTC in the US:

I would really like to see the skill requirements for the Covetor rebalanced to just require Mining Barge 4 and Astrogeology 4, and make the Hulk a real step up with the skills at 5 instead of making the Covetor almost pointless. The training time for a Covetor when a Hulk is just a short skill hop away makes no sense. The progression is cruiser > Retriever > Hulk and you see almost no Covetors in the middle being deployed like they should be. Sad this does not seem to be in this release.

As others have stated, removal of widescreen mode is not in the patch notes.

I (along with many other people) used the widescreen mode to add more contrast to the ship UI and removing it for what seems like no reason is disappointing. It was the one thing that made the faintly pulsing active module icons and locked targets stand out more.

IMO this is a backwards step in UI usability...

NOTE:
THE REMOVAL OF CONTACT LIST FOLDERS IS NOT MENTIONED.

ADVICE:
CCP GET READY TO GET TARGETED BY ALL EVE PILOTS.

Re: Alliance Logos

We in Primary have been waiting patiently for our alliance logo to display within the game itself. We've gone to great lengths to push our image to the community, however, all effort is naught until we see our happy dude with guns in the game.

CCP, can you please confirm or deny that alliance logo submissions received under the new application process will be included within the Tyrannis expansion?

Thank you,
Squizz Caphinator

So CCP, When I logged onto SiSi, all my contacts disappeared. Like all of them. I have like 7.

First, the 300 character limit is absurd, second, I don't think you realize how ****ed off most of us will be if we have to go to each one of our buddies and change the standings we have towards them to keep them in our contacts list.

So please, increase the limit, and quickly. And change the parsing so that characters who are currently buddies will get +5 or +10 standing. PLEASE.

Ah, totally forgot.

CCP, on the advent of Planetary Interaction which has no bearing on or affiliation with PVP until you find a proper integration model for EVE and Dust 514, I'd like to say thank you for killing my pew pew by means of removing the widescreen functionality as an easy "fix" for an overview bug.

Those black contrast bars provide a much needed element of redundancy which allows players with colour sensitivity or other deficiencies to compensate for the little flaws and hiccups in EVE's Usability design. Taking them out, removes that compensation mechanism. It begs the question, which is more worth it, the shortcut fix or shutting out user groups which common Usability standards take into account.

As a user with a visual deficiency, that's a crippling move with drastic consequences for any activity which involves targeting, weapons icons, HUD display, Heat status and module status to varying degrees.

It's interesting to note that the bugreports on the matter were written off as "this is not the place for feature requests".

It's even more interesting since the design of PI actually showed there finally was a reasonable focus on Usability of design, but it appears taking shortcuts prevails over such ventures.

So,

cheers

...Utu planetoid...

"The Utu-class were designed both for the line of battle and for independent, long-term survey and picket deployment, with core crews of two hundred and fifty thousand. Intended optimum deployment time is twenty-five Terran years, with provision for a sixty percent increase in personnel during that period. Maximum deployment time is virtually unlimited, assuming crew expansion is contained.

"In addition to small, two-seat fighters that may be employed in either attack or defense, it deploys sublight parasite warships massing up to eighty thousand tons. Shipboard weaponry centers around hyper-capable missile batteries backed up by direct-fire energy weapons. Weapon payloads range from chemical warheads through fusion, anti-matter, and gravitonic warheads. Essentially, this ship could vaporize a planet."

"Sublight propulsion, relies upon phased gravitonic progression. Your present terminology lacks the referents for an accurate description, but for purposes of visualization, you may consider it a reactionless drive with a maximum attainable velocity of fifty-two-point-four percent that of light. Above that velocity, a vessel of this size would lose phase lock, and be destroyed.

"Unlike previous designs, the Utu-class do not rely upon multi-dimensional drives-what science fiction writers have dubbed 'hyper drives,' for faster-than-light travel. Instead, this ship employs the Enchanach Drive. It may be envisioned it as the creation of converging artificially-generated 'black holes,' which force the vessel out of phase with normal space in a series of instantaneous transpositions between coordinates in normal space. Under Enchanach Drive, dwell time in normal space between transpositions is approximately point-seven-five Terran femtoseconds.

"The Enchanach Drive's maximum effective velocity is approximately Cee-six factorial. While this is lower than that of the latest hyper drives, Enchanach Drive vessels have several tactical advantages. Most importantly, they may enter, maneuver in, and leave a supralight state at will, whereas hyper drive vessels may enter and leave supralight only at pre-selected coordinates.

I am not sure what exact case you are referring to but I suggest you file a bug report with some more detail on it, you can find detailed instructions on how to write a good bug report here.




Hi Gangleri, cheers for responding.

I've only gone as far as a few petitions and the response i got was "We are aware of this issue and it will be dealt with". - Some automated messages and some not.

What the issue is with (and only) the SemiCharmed account, no matter what pc, fresh client install, OS, PC Build, country (which can only mean its server based issue not client) almost every time i log in all my chat windows de-group and scatter across the screen (most of the time they are all in the top left corner of the screen). So i have to put them all back knowing when i log off and back on i will have to do it again. - i found out that i am not the only one having the issue and i was assured that the issue would be dealt with. This has been going on for about 6 month.

Now knowing what i quoted specifically means, I will plan for the worst and hope for the best on patch day with a bug report in my back pocket i guess.

Cheers again,
Semi


I can also give credence to this claim in that i as well am having the issue of my chat windows unpinning and moving to the top left every so often. it didn't happen enough to warrant me filing a petition as i just put up with it but about once a month it would happen or so.

First Line: "CCP hf. ("We") are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy."

Are you now? So how exactly is pasting my character info up for anyone and everyone to see "Protecting and Respecting" my privacy. IF I WANTED SOMEONE TO SEE MY INFO I'D GIVE THEM AN API.

Sorry for the rage yell there.Embarassed

So I guess the real issue is what is the point of a user number and encryption key to access my api information, if anyone can log into eve gate and take a look? Very poor planning CCP, and a privacy violation of the highest degree.

I am less than enthusiastic about this patch, mainly due to no additional pvp content, or fixes to game balance.

I couldn't care less about solar flares, or planetary interaction.

I'm hoping the winter patch has pvp related content.

Low sec and some null sec asteroids have higher amounts of low end minerals such as Tritanium, Pyerite or Mexallon. For more info, see The Circle of Life dev blog by CCP Chronotis.

As long as this is being done how about adding some Noxc, Zyd and Mega to Empire rocks say add it to Omber and Kernite. Giving low sec and null sec rocks more low end minerals should be balanced by giving some of the high security rocks some high end minerals.

GUYS GUYS GUYS! CMON! we all know ccp doesn't give a d*rn about their paying customers. We've all been bent over by a GM and played with for their pleasure. They stole my crystal implant set and banned me for 30 days when I told them what I thought of their help system and how much they didnt care about their paying customers.

They just want to make new stuff for newbies to oogle over and to give them more of a reason to pay to play the game. Who cares about the people who they know will pay to play since they have x amount of years dedicated to skilling their char...

Until I get my crystal implant set back, CCP can kiss my.....
