Quantum Rise, EVE Online's 10th official expansion
Release date: November 11, 2008

The Quantum Rise expansion includes features such as a new certificate system that allows verification of a player's proficiency in certain defined groups of skills by other players and a medal system for awards by corporations. Industrial ships were rebalanced and optimized, with addition of the Orca-class ship, "a sub-capital logistical ship with a mining command focus." The staged delivery of the expansion began with the recent implementation of new technology such as StacklessIO and EVE64 which upgraded the server hardware and streamlined communication between server and client to reduce lag. These improvements provide performance allowing for player vs. player battles with thousands of participants. Further hardware and software improvements are planned. Other features of the expansion include further graphics updates as started in the Trinity expansion; the ability for players to group their vessels' weapons for easier interaction; changes to autopilot routes and avoidance of player-defined solar systems. This patch also brought a controversial overhaul of the speed system.

Patch Notes Edit

CriticalEdit

  • Vastly outperforming previous network technology, StacklessIO brings reduced latency and faster response to EVE Online. With StacklessIO, the groundwork has been laid for pushing the limits of today's server technology to new heights. For the past two years we have been developing this new technology to increase the performance of our network communication infrastructure in EVE. This new network layer reduces network latency and improves performance in high-volume situations, e.g., in fleet-fights and market hubs such as Jita. More information can be found in CCP Explorer’s blog on StacklessIO.
  • We've migrated all of our key servers to 64-bit software, allowing the scale of player battles to surpass the previous limit of a few hundred on each side and improving performance in extremely high traffic regions of space. Full details of EVE 64 can be seen in EVE64 Dev Blog by CCP Explorer.
  • Major world shaping events have occured in the Constellation of Santenpaa. Caldari Corporations, especially the Caldari Navy, have relocated several Agents to other areas of the state to improve efficency. This will mainly affect the systems of Isenarios and Aramachi.
  • In addition the Caldari State have relocated jump gates from this area.
  • The 30-day renewable license pioneered by CONCORD is an alternative to its pod pilot contract license. Pilots on this new renewal scheme can purchase license extensions for ISK and thereby forgo the need for a contract altogether. Full details can be found in Oveurs Blog I can resist anything but temptation.

World ShapingEdit

World ShapingEdit

  • The following stargate routes have been removed:
  • Komo <-> Motsu
  • Saila <-> Oichiya
  • Saila <-> Motsu
  • Saila <-> Laah
  • The following stargate routes have been added:
  • Komo <-> Oichiya
  • Oichiya <-> Laah
  • The following stations belonging to the Caldari Navy have been deployed:
  • Ichoriya V Caldari Navy Logistic Support.
  • Tintoh VIII Caldari Navy Testing Facilities.

FeaturesEdit

ShipsEdit

  • Outer Ring excavations (ORE) and Deep Core Mining (DCM) have completed a joint venture by creating The Orca. This new empire-capable vessel is designed as a "sub capital" logistical ship with a mining command focus, ideal for the day to day needs of corporations or individuals. Filling a void between regular and capital ships, the Orca is a more affordable option for pilots who can’t yet fly capitals. These boats are able to use stargates but do not have jump drives. CCP Chronotis provides full details in the Orca Dev Blog.

Role Bonus:

  • 250% bonus to range of tractor beams (70km)
  • 100% bonus to tractor beam velocity (1km sec)
  • 500% bonus to survey scanner range (~125km)

Industrial Command Ships Bonus:

  • 3% bonus to effectiveness of mining foreman gang links per level and 5% bonus to cargo capacity per level
    • Slots: 3/4/2
    • Turret hard points: 0
    • Launcher slots: 0
    • Fitting: 430cpu, 960pg
    • Drones: 75m3/50 Mbit/sec bandwidth

Need For SpeedEdit

  • Weapon Grouping is a new system that allows you to group your ship’s guns/launchers together into one entity. Group creation will be done through a single right-click menu and activation will be toggled by a shortcut or button. The benefits are that you can fire all guns and missiles in one salvo and change ammo types across all turrets and launchers much more easily. This new feature also reduces the number of database calls required for firing weapons separately, allowing the server to operate more fluidly. Module recharge timers allow players to gauge how long before the next activation. The movable HUD gives players even more control over their UI layout. Full details on Weapon Linking can be found at Weapon Grouping by CCP Ytterbium.
  • Speed rebalance has been introduced, affecting a great many different ships and modules. Maximum top speed has been reduced across the board along with changes to how micro warp drives operate. Stasis webifiers, rigs, overdrives, implants, web drones and gang bonuses have all been changed. Full details of what has been changed will be listed in the appropriate section and a full listing of the Speed Rebalanced Dev Blog by CCP Nozh is available.
  • Thousands of NPC's have been affected by changes to rate of fire. Various NPC's with a high rate of fire were modified, their RoF reduced and the damage increased, keeping the DPS the same. Less number of shots means less load on the server.
  • Various database improvements have been added to allow for optimization of the game engine. These improvements will allow the client to provide a smoother gaming experience for players. This includes changes to Corporation standings which are calculated during downtime.
  • It also affects how characters are loaded into and unloaded from solar systems. The biggest benefit will be when a large fleet is jumping simultaneously and how the server manages and tracks engagements.
  • We have made improvements to the contract system on a DB level and we also refactored and optimised how a large number of items are moved between a station hangar and ship cargo hold.

Player Owned Structures, Stations & OutpostsEdit

  • A new Large Ship Assembly Array has been added which can be anchored in high security space. This new assembly array can manufacture battleships, freighters and industrial command ships. It has 3 slots with a 0.75 time multiplier and a 1.0 material multiplier.

Agents & MissionsEdit

  • 54 new missions have been added for Level 1 through to Level 5. These missions are primarily for Empire based factions.

Character Creation and New Player ExperienceEdit

  • Earn official recognition for accomplishing certain levels of skill training in all areas from trading to combat. Certificates are a powerful tool to reinforce your bragging rights and bargaining power. The certificate system will be an invaluable asset to new players who wish to plan a new skill. Full details can be seen in the Certificates blog from CCP Greyscale.

Science & IndustryEdit

  • Moon minerals have gone through some changes in regards to production. Moon mining will remain unchanged and will process as normal; however, players can now create some of the rarer moon minerals like dysprosium and promethium through reactions. We have created six new reactions which allow you to create key intermediate materials without relying on the rarest moon minerals. This isn't, of course, an efficient process and each rare mineral has been assigned a more common counterpart, which can be used in the place of the rare mineral in these new reactions at a ratio of 20:1. This roughly approximates the difference in moon count between the rare mineral and the common mineral in each case. The four pairings are cadmium/dysprosium, vanadium/thulium, chromium/promethium and platinum/neodymium. The final output of each of the reactions will be ten units per cycle, and the common mineral always replaces the mineral at a 20:1 ratio. More details can be found in the Alchemy Dev Blog from CCP Greyscale.

Markets & ContractsEdit

  • The market has had a bit of a makeover. Extra filters have been added and the price history screen has been adjusted.

Corporation & AllianceEdit

  • Player corporations will be able to create and award medals to their members.
  • Any member with the personnel manager, director or CEO role can create a medal in the corp interface > members > decorations section. When creating a medal you define the look of the medal, give it a title and description. Creating a medal costs 5 million ISK paid from the corp wallet.
  • A personnel manager, director or CEO can then award a medal they have created to their corp members either by context selecting the corp member in the chat channel or using the memberlists and multi selecting many members. The cost of awarding a medal is 5million ISK per award to each member. The same medal can be awarded multiple times to the same member.
  • When you are awarded a medal, you will receive an evemail notification detailing why you were awarded the medal. You can then check the decorations tab in your character sheet to see a list of medals you have been awarded. From here you can opt to display a medal publically or trash it or set it back to private. Your other corporation members can see an overview of the corporations medals within the corp interface> members > decorations tab which displays various information for each medal including its recipients.
  • Medals can be set public after you have been awarded them through your character sheet in the decorations > settings tab. Medals may take up to an hour to show to other players around the universe.

Graphics GeneralEdit

  • Stargates have received a makeover and will now display gorgeous new graphics. Each faction has had their stargates optimised and the effects are stunning.
  • Gates which are currently Smuggler stargates will remain so.
  • Gates between systems in the same constellation will use Small gates.
  • Gates between systems in different constellations in the same region will use Medium gates.
  • Gates between systems in different regions will use Large gates.
  • Gates between two major hisec empires have border gates of the appropriate faction on each side.
  • Gates between a major hisec empire (as defined above) and 0.0 space have border gates on both sides; on both sides the gate type is determined by the asteroid pirates present as usual.
  • Gates in systems with Blood Raider or Sansha asteroid pirates will use Amarr gates.
  • Gates in systems with Guristas asteroid pirates will use Caldari Gates.
  • Gates in systems with Serpentis or Rogue Drone asteroid pirates will use Gallente gates.
  • Gates in systems with Angel asteroid pirates will use Minmatar gates.

Graphics PremiumEdit

  • There is now a Premium version of the CONCORD station in Yulai. Until now this station has only been available as a Classic model (in both the Classic and Premium clients).

User InterfaceEdit

  • There is a new color scheme preset option called "Nero". This is the default color scheme in Quantum Rise.
  • A new option has been added to the UI under ESC> General settings tab> Window snap distance called "Don't Snap" which will allow players to disable windows snapping altogether.
  • Double clicking on a character icon in chat will now display "Show info" rather than starting a conversation.
  • Module recharge timers allow players to gauge how long before the next activation.
  • The movable HUD gives players even more control over their UI layout.

EVE API and Static data DumpEdit

  • The EVE API will provide extensions for both Medals and Certificates.
  • Database extensions for Certificates will be added to the Static Data Dump.

MiscellaneousEdit

  • 10 new tracks have been added to the jukebox to enhance your listening pleasure.

  • The Kronos and Paladin have had their webifiers bonus increased from 2% to 10% per skill level.
  • The Crane, Prorator, Prowler and Viator can now equip a covert ops cloak and can therefore warp whilst cloaked now. In addition these four ships can gain a 5% bonus per transports skill level to the CPU need of fitting a covert ops cloak.
  • The Crane, Prorator, Prowler and Viator can now use a black ops jump portal.
  • The Crane, Prorator, Prowler and Viator have had their +2warp strength bonus removed.

  • The shield booster cap need bonus has been removed from the Prowler.
  • The armor repairer cap need bonus has been removed from the Viator.
  • The Bustard, Impel, Mastodon and Occator all gain a +2 warp strength bonus. In addition, the Bustard and Mastodon have gained a +5% bonus to shield hitpoints per Transport Ships skill level and the Impel and Occator have gained a +5% bonus to armor hitpoints per Transport Ships level.
  • The Bustard has had its shield boost bonus reduced to 5% per level.
  • The Impel has had its armor repairer duration bonus removed.
  • The Mastodon has had its shield booster capacitor need bonus removed.
  • The Occator has had its armor repairer capacitor need and duration bonus removed and an armor repairer amount bonus added.

  • The Procurer has had its agility slightly increased.
  • The Skiff has had its agility slightly increased.
  • The Mackinaw has had its CPU increased by 10 and the cargo capacity increased by 1000m3.
  • The Nighthawk has had the explosion radius bonus changed to +5% heavy missile explosion velocity per level.
  • The Flycatcher has had the explosion radius bonus changed to 3% reduction of Light Missile damage reduction factor per level.
  • The Heretic now has an explosion velocity bonus changed to +5% per level.
  • The Golem now has an explosion velocity bonus changed to +5% per level.
  • A situation existed where your active ship could, incorrectly, be stored in a Carrier ship maintenance bay while docked at a station. This has been fixed and it is no longer possible to store your active ship in a Carrier while docked at a station.
  • Carrier pilots now have full access to the carrier corp hangars even if corporation roles for corp hangars are different.
  • Jaguar bonuses have been clarified, and resistance bonuses have been removed.
  • All Harpies and Hawks have been recalled for urgent paint jobs. They will now show their respective mega-corporations' colors.
  • Both jump freighters and regular freighters may now loot from jump freighter wrecks.
  • Carriers and Motherships will no longer keep additional targets locked when triage mode expires. The ship will revert to the maximum number of locked targets as allowed by the player’s skills.

ModulesEdit

  • Nanofiber Internal Structures of all types no longer give a mass reduction and will instead have a velocity modifier and inertia multiplier.
  • All overdrives have been reduced in effectiveness by 37.5%. Faction variants (Republic Fleet and Domination) will have a maximum 12.5% velocity modifier but cargo capacity drawback will only be 5%.
  • The micro warp drive is now vulnerable to warp scramblers (the 7.5km version). If you get scrambled your MWD will immediately end its cycle. You won't be able to activate it until you're out of warp scramble range, and the reactivation timer has expired. In addition, all MWD's now give you a 500% speed boost, regardless of meta level.
  • The capacitor penalty associated with micro warp drives will now be based on meta level. A standard Tech I MWD will have a capacitor penalty of 25% when equipped while the meta 14 MWD will have a 0% penalty to capacitor status. Signature radius bonus will also be applied in this manner. A standard Tech I MWD will have a signature radius penalty of 500% while the meta 14 variation will be 411%.
  • Changes have been made to all variations of afterburners. A standard Tech I afterburner will now have a speed boost of 112.5% while a meta 14 variant will have a 162% speed boost. Adjustments have been made to the cap requirement for meta 11 and above. There are clear advantages and drawbacks to the two types of modules within the same meta level. Some afterburners will have a smaller cap and power grid need while others will have more speed bonus and less CPU need.
  • The following afterburners have all increased in meta level by a factor of +1: Gallente Navy 1/10/100MN Afterburner, Shadow Serpentis 1/10/100MN Afterburner, Monopropellant I Hydrazine Boosters, Cold-Gas I Arcjet Thrusters. The LiF Fueled I Booster Rockets will be reduced in meta level by a factor of -1.
  • Stasis webifiers now have a maximum effective speed reduction of -60%. This changed from the maximum effective speed reduction of -90%. In order to compensate, all standard webifiers and faction variants will have either better range and CPU fitting requirements, better range and speed factor, or better speed factor and CPU fitting requirements. Officer variants will now have up to 20km range (reduced from 40km) and a speed reduction factor between 55-60%. Capacitor use, power grid and CPU fitting requirements have been tweaked depending on meta level.
  • Warp scramblers have been changed and, along with the current ability of +2 warp scrambling strength, will now incapacitate an active micro warp drive. The Dark Blood and True Sansha warp scrambler have been promoted to meta level eight and the four variants within meta levels seven through nine will allow for either better range and CPU fitting, better range and strength, better strength and CPU fitting or much better CPU fitting.
  • Officer warp scramblers will now have a maximum range of up to 15 km. Capacitor use, power grid and CPU fitting requirements have been tweaked depending on meta level.
  • The radius of the large mobile warp disruptors have been reduced by about 26%. This will range from the smallest (Mobile Small Warp Disruptor I) of 5000m radius up to the largest (Syndicate Mobile Large Warp Disruptor) of 33,500m. In addition, the total hit points of the Syndicate Mobile Large Warp Disruptor have been increased by 50%.
  • Skirmish Warfare skill will be changed to give a 2% per level gang bonus to agility.
  • Skirmish Warfare Mindlink will also be changed to give a 15% gang bonus to agility, in addition to the 50% bonus to the command bonus of Skirmish Warfare Link modules. The agility gang bonus overrides effect of the Skirmish Warfare skill gang bonus, just like for the other "passive" mindlink bonuses.
  • Skirmish Warfare Link will be changed to give a 2% command bonus, resulting in a maximum 25.875% boost.
  • Energy Nosferatu and Neutralizers have had their blueprint job times reduced to be in line with other modules.
  • The Protest´ Large Armor Repairer I blueprint and module will now appear under the search options in the Contracts menu.
  • The Remote Sensor Booster II has had its skill requirements changed to Sensor Linking 4 to bring it in line with other T2 modules.
  • "AURA" warp core stabilizers have been enhanced and their CPU requirements reduced to 22.
  • T1 and T2 Mercoxit Mining Crystal BPO’s have had their required number of Nocxium for building modified. In addition, Tech II Mercoxit mining crystals can now be reprocessed.
  • A signature radius of 25m has been added to Mining Drone I, Mining Drone II, Civilian Mining Drone and Harvester Mining Drone. This will now prevent 100% scan success on mining drones with any type of probe.
  • Descriptions for warfare link modules have been changed. It now says: "Note: The Gang bonus only works if you are the assigned fleet booster."
  • "Passive Defence Armored Warfare Link" does not cause aggression and it is possible to dock and jump after having it activated.
  • Several warp scramblers have been renamed to better specify their functionality:
    • Faint Epsilon Warp Prohibitor I -> Faint Epsilon Warp Scrambler
    • Initiated Harmonic Warp Jammer I -> Initiated Harmonic Warp Scrambler
    • J5b Phased Prototype Warp Inhibitor I -> J5b Phased Prototype Warp Scrambler I
  • Several warp disruptors have been renamed to better specify their functionality:
    • J5 Prototype Warp Inhibitor I -> J5 Prototype Warp Disruptor I
    • Fleeting Warp Scrambler I -> Fleeting Warp Disruptor
    • Faint Warp Prohibitor I -> Faint Warp Disruptor
    • Initiated Warp Jammer I -> Initiated Warp Disruptor

RigsEdit

  • Polycarbon Engine Housing I and II no longer give a mass reduction and will instead have a velocity modifier and inertia multiplier.
  • Locus Coordinator rigs are now subject to stacking penalties.

Weapons & AmmunitionEdit

  • All missile types have been balanced to ensure that oversized missiles do not have too much of an effect on smaller ships. As before, ships are still protected from larger missiles by their signature radius. When going sufficiently fast, the damage taken from missiles is reduced by the signature radius to speed ratio, rather than just speed. Going faster or reducing the signature radius will reduce missile damage further. For a ship with the same signature radius as the missile's explosion radius, the missile's explosion velocity indicates the speed at which the missile damage starts to get reduced. The new formula allows for speed tanking using afterburners. In fact, afterburners will in general be more effective than micro warp drive for speed tanking missiles.
  • Light, heavy and cruise precision missiles will now do more damage to smaller targets and will have a penalty of -50% range.
  • Rocket, assault missile and torpedo javelin missiles will now do -10% less damage but range has been increased by 50%.
  • Rage rocket, assault missiles and torpedoes and Fury light, heavy and cruise missiles will do less damage to their own ship class but will do more damage to a larger ship class. They will also have a -10% range reduction.
  • The cost of producing all types of bombs has been reduced by 33%. This change will affect the Concussion, Electron. Lockbreaker, Scorch, Shrapnel and Void bombs.
  • Doomsday devices and smartbombs will no longer penetrate the shield of a starbase, even if you have permission to access the POS shields.

DronesEdit

  • In order to bring the Berserker SW-900 drones in line with the changed webifiers, their speed factor is changed from -30% to -20%. Since the web effect is affected by a stacking penalty, 5x -30% web drones gives an overall reduction of 45.9%.
  • All medium drones have been changed as they were too effective against small targets. The optimal signature radius has been increased to 125m and increased tracking by a factor of 1.2x giving a change of -42.4% against smaller targets.
  • Particle Accelerator Units were being requested as building components for Infiltrator, Vespa, Hammerhead and Valkyrie Tech II drones. These have been changed to the correct construction component required by race. Therefore Infiltrator drones will use Laser Focusing Crystals, Vespa drones will use Superconductor Rails and Valkyrie drones will use Thermonuclear Trigger Units for Tech II production. Hammerhead drones will still require Particle Accelerator Units for construction.
  • Tech II Praetor drones now require two Laser Focusing Crystals for production to bring them in line with other Tech II heavy drone variants.

SkillsEdit

Player Owned Structures, Stations and OutpostsEdit

  • You will now automatically relinquish control of starbase guns or system scanners whenever you disconnect from the client.
  • Ship assembly arrays of all sizes at starbases have had their descriptions changed to reflect new ship classes that they are able to produce. The Advanced Large Ship Assembly Array can now produce Black Ops, Marauders and Jump Freighters. The Advanced Medium Ship Assembly Array can produce Heavy Interdictors and the Advanced Small Ship Assembly Array can produce Electronic Attack Frigates.
  • The large ship assembly array has been renamed to X-Large Ship Assembly Array.
  • The Efficient Equipment Assembly Array has been renamed to the Equipment Assembly Array and the number of manufacturing slots has been increased to six. The time multiplier has also been changed to 0.75.
  • Advanced capital construction components have been added to the component assembly array. Component assembly arrays will now be able to manufacture these items.
  • The jump bridge fuel bay has been changed to allow only the correct fuel, liquid ozone, to be loaded.
  • Right clicking your mouse on the system scanning array in the scanner window will no longer give you the option to "Destroy Probe". The only action that can be performed will be "Relinquish Control".
  • POS gunners will now be able to target and destroy hostile drones in high security space.
  • The capital ship assembly array, cynosural system jammer and system scanning array were incorrectly displaying a mass of 100 kg. After a diet consisting of steak, pizza and Oveur's beer supply, they now display the correct mass of 10000000 kg.
  • Bookmarks will now display correctly in the corporate hangar array. This will allow them to be removed and allow the unanchoring of this module.

  • All variations of X-Instinct booster will no longer provide a velocity bonus and will instead give a bonus for reduced signature radius. The new description will read: "This energizing booster grants its user a vastly improved economy of effort when parsing the data streams needed to sustain space flight. The main benefit of this lies not in improved performance but less waste of transmission and extraneous micro maneuvers, making the pilot's ship sleeker in performance and harder to detect. The booster's only major drawback is the crazed notion that the pilot's inventory would be look so much better if merely rearranged ONE MORE TIME."

Character Creation & New Player ExperienceEdit

  • The text on page 3 of the tutorial named "Character sheet advanced information" has been modified to say “plug in” rather than “Insert” for implants.
  • New Minmatar players will now receive the same standing bonuses as their Caldari counterparts when completing courier missions designed for new players.

  • The level 3 mission "New Frontiers (5 of 7)" will now have reduced neutralizing, DPS and Electronic Warfare.
  • The agent Yuata Ishodaki, who was located at Notoras II - Lai Dai Protection Service Assembly Plant, has been moved and is now located in the station Sarenemi V - Home Guard Assembly Plant. Lai Dai didn’t want that Agent anyway.
  • Agent mission bonus rewards above 100,000 ISK will now be subject to corporation taxes. For example, if your player corporation has a 10% tax rate then 10% of your mission bonus reward will now be added to the corporation wallet.
  • The silo in the storyline mission "Shipyard Theft" will now drop a loot container.
  • Battleships can now squeeze through the acceleration gates in the missions "My Sweet Privateer" and "Transport Duty".

Market & ContractsEdit

  • The "N-1 Neon Type Rocket Bay" module and blueprint have been added to the market.
  • Skills now get filtered off the market if the check box is ticked and skills are learned.

Corporation & AllianceEdit

  • Blueprints can now be unlocked if a vote times out with zero votes. This fix is the result of blueprints getting locked down when the vote is proposed but time elapses with no votes. The same mechanic is now used to unlock blueprints.
  • The "Access Denied" pop up message that would display when an Accountant or Junior Accountant would access the corporation wallet without take rights has been removed.
  • Corporations that applied to expired alliances will now display the correct membership history; the expired alliance will not appear on it.
