I got the exact same problem, especially around stations and gates, empty or not, 300-400 fps everywhere else at highest res/set up and that wasnt a problem before - tried to lower the options, dosent change anything..

THE END PART

That’s what I have for you for now. Even though there is so much more to do (hello bombers, supers, ECM and missiles!), we believe ship and module balance in EVE is in one of the best positions we’ve seen in a long time. We hope to keep improving based on these great guiding principles that my colleague and dance partner, CCP Fozzie, outlined some time ago:


As a big missile fan... What you do have in mind for missiles? where/how can I find out? <3

I'm having the same problem since the patch.

I'm running two game clients though, I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the new FPS dips. It's happening on both clients... Each running on an independent video card. I have two game folders, and I guess now they're sharing a cache folder? Even with just one instance of the game open I'm having the same problem so I'm not even sure if the multiple clients thing has any influence on the problem. ccp wat do

Reading from patch notes:

Fighters can no longer be assigned to other pilots. The ‘Delegate Control’ option has been removed and replaced by ‘Assist’ and ‘Defend’, same as other drones.


It seems "Assist and Defend" doesn't appears in game for fighters ....
Is this a bug or devs decision?


You are looking at an old version of the patch notes, we have also removed the Assist and Defend options. Capital ships will be re-balanced later this year, we will make them awesome again!


Maybe make changes like totally removing features later in the year when you have something to replace them then.................................................... meantime there were plenty of options for fixing the skynet specific issues without wholesale removal of a long standing feature. Bad development is bad development no excuses.

So CCP, doesn't this seem a little backward to you? We know it's gonna make things suck, but since it will get fixed in the future we're just gonna let it suck....

I mean really it would be like saying "We don't like the bonuses X ship gives, so we're just going to remove all bonuses and let the ship suck until we rebalance the ship sometime in the future, and it will be a good ship again."

Seems like a pretty bad idea to do business that way. And I'm not even in nullsec to use my carrier for a while, still think a different solution should be worked out.

Other than that, the patch sounds great. About to get on and check it out.

Mouse reverses in space. But then reverses again, or doesn't reverse, in the probing window.

I don't know what's real anymore.

Anyone else getting random missing images since this patch? Some of the UI buttons and ships in the target section just seem to be blank.

I had heard that we were to be given the option to have a full install. I already had the client installed and was not given a choice on the update.


Checked the Launcher settings and set it to download all resource files. :)

Since you've had whole game client on your machine already there was no need for that. That is why you had first step of patch, where luncher moved relevant game files to the cache area to be used in future rather than being downloaded on demand.

I just check the luncher - I can not find option to up out from DownloadOnDemand as I would rather have all relevant data at once not being fetched while I play as my network speed could have been way better


EDIT: Just found option on luncher to 'download all files'

Maybe that's the issue in your case... go to gear icon in luncher (on the right hand side of luncher window), then go to Download option and then tick 'Download all the resource files'

After restart it will download rest of the patch - in my case now its approx 196MB

New client is very nice: total size of the game folder is 2.1Gb (after loading captain quarters + flying around Jita 4-4).

Check the size of the shared resource cache folder as well. EVE didn't go on that much of a diet.

Can you please fix the horrible mess that you are making with those files? You are worse than Apple! At least, Apple only hoggs space in AppData and the installation folder. You are hogging space on the Home Directory, the installation directory and wherever someone chose to export those damn files to. Also, when did you stop discussing those changes with the players beforehand? Wasn't boot.ini enough of a reason to check before rolling out such life-changing decisions?

Good patch :)

To be honest I expected problems with the download on demand transition but it was flawless. Good job.

well... let me quote something out of the latest scylla patchnotes for you:

Patch Notes For Scylla
2015-03-23 10:56
Patch notes for Scylla 1.0
For Release on Tuesday, March 24, 2015

[...]

Fighters can no longer be assigned to other pilots, the ‘Delegate Control’ option has been removed from right click menus. (Updated on March 23, was originally: "Fighters can no longer be assigned to other pilots. The ‘Delegate Control’ option has been removed and replaced by ‘Assist’ and ‘Defend’, same as other drones.")


its still in the patchnotes - so i was a little surprised myself today when i tested if my fighters still warp to me when i leave grid and tried to assist them to an alt on grid and there was no "assist" option.

i rather say remove it out of the patchnotes or give the assist and deffend to the players :)

I have shared folder within the game folder. I flew around 4-4 specifically to load as many ship models as possible.

CCP... YOu removed one thing to replace it with another... and now... you decide to make fighters useless??? They are better than a drone. Doesn't that mean that Assist and Defend should be allowed? It was on the Test Server, on the Release note and all of a sudden those release notes are old???

http://community.eveonline.com/news/patch-notes/patch-notes-for-scylla

Those Patch Notes which have a date of 3.23.15 still state Assist and Defend feature for Fighters.

Can you please link the Patch Notes which state otherwise?

Thank you...
