The Rhea release has been successful deployed!

The Rhea release brings a long list of changes to the world of EVE Online, including User Interface updates, new exploration content, 101 new wormhole systems, manual flight control, changes to cloning mechanics and a new opt in beta starmap that we're looking to gather feedback on!

For more information on the Rhea release, and to see a full list of features, take a look at the Rhea release page, and read more about what's coming in CCP Seagull's "Coming to EVE in the Rhea release" dev blog. For a full and detailed breakdown of changes please see the patch notes for Rhea.

Please provide details of any issues you encounter in this thread.

For general feedback on the Rhea release, please use this thread, and for issues relating to the Macintosh client, please use this thread.



Known issues

Character selection
  • Resizing the Character Select Screen causes the screen to go black but remain functional. Characters can still be selected, the game plays normally. The workaround is a client restart.

Map Beta
  • Transparent windows on top of map will show the scene behind the map.
  • The New Eden Store will not open when the new map is full screen.
  • ”Systems I‘ve visited“ filter can cause some display issues.
  • Opening ISIS when the new map is in full screen can cause minor display issues.

Confessor
  • The Confessor doesn’t animate in station (But the bonuses are correctly applied).
  • The Confessor does not yet have the correct industry tax.
  • The Confessors mode switching does not have keyboard shortcuts.

General
  • You cannot set Autopilot to a station while in Thera.
  • The Bowhead can currently be invented. This will be changed in an upcoming patch so we recommend you do not waste your time trying to invent it. Smile
  • Several items arrived with a slight delay to the New Eden Store and will be available later today.
  • In certain circumstances the camera can get stuck at a fixed point in and will only allow you to rotate. The workaround is a client restart.

Frequently asked questions and answers



How can I use the new Starmap (Beta)?
  1. Open the settings menu via ESC key.
  2. In the General Settings tab activate the new starmap feature by clicking the "Try new map" checkbox.
  3. Close the settings menu.
  4. To open the new starmap click on the new beta starmap icon in the NeoCom. Alternatively you can use the key combination CTRL + F10 to open the new starmap.

Further information about the map is available here.


How can I use the new manual flight controls?
  1. Open the settings menu via ESC key.
  2. Go to the "Shortcuts" tab and the sub-tab "Navigation".
  3. Click on "Direction Down" in the list and then click the "Edit Shortcut" button. Click on "Direction Down" in the list and then click the "Edit Shortcut" button.
  4. Assign a shortcut to steer your ship "downwards" by pushing the desired key.
  5. Repeat above steps for "Direction Left", "Direction Right" and "Direction Up".
  6. Close the settings menu.

Further information about the manual flight control is available here.


I don't like the new UI. How can I use the old UI?
There is no option available to switch back to the old UI. If you have specific issues with the new UI, please point out exactly the problem and reply constructively in this thread. Thank you!

Please be aware that you can change the window transparency and that you can disable window blur. You can adjust the transparency and blur options in the settings menu (open the settings menu via ESC key).

Further information about the new UI is available here.


How do I get to Thera?
You can only enter the new system "Thera" via a wormhole.

You have to find a wormhole to Thera on your own (check out Seamus Donohueor's excellent YouTube guide on probing). To speed up that process you can use player made tools (without guarantee!), for example EVE Thera or EVE Scout.

Further information about Thera is available here.



How do I upgrade my clone?
With Rhea all clone grades were removed, you do not need to upgrade your clone any more.

The loss of skillpoints in case of a podkill while having an insufficient medical clone, is gone (note: you still lose skillpoints when you lose a T3 cruiser).

Further information about the new clones is available here.



Why is my ship not looking as shiny and nice as all the other ships around me?
With the introduction of Physically Based Rendering (PBR) in Rhea, ships and other objects in EVE Online are looking much more realistic. In some cases this additional realism requires some tweaks to existing materials and textures. Those additional improvements will be carried out by our art team.

Further information about PBR is available here.

Edit: Moved from incorrect thread.

Edit: Seems to have corrected itself after the 4th attempt to download the patch.

Personally I'm having issues patching. I've downloaded the patch 3 times and during the update I will receive some error that I cannot cut and paste and then I'm forced to close the launcher and restart.

The only thing I can read in the mess of technical errors is something about a "client already in use" and it points to my Steam install directory. :/

CCP - When playing on a small monitor in windowed mode I am reduced to 1024x768 resoloution, this isnt a problem as this is what i was using before, however it now appears that my UI boxes in space are disproportionate to the resolution as I cannot fit as much on the screen even when I reduce the UI scaling in the options.

I run dual monitors, the problem one being a 17inch 4:3 monitor.

I need windowed mode in order to be able to play whilst doing other things.

Regards.

Well 101 new systems, new exploration content, new UI, new star map, new ship renders and textures and models.
I'd say 1.5GB is pretty reasonable.
Any devs want to say which of those took the most space? I'm guessing the PBR and new ships.

Following issue:

I log on with the launcher
The game opens in window mode
I see the login screen
I click the button to fit the game window to my screen (maximize)
-> all characters, basically the whole login screen disappears, except the EVE Online Logo and the days of the remaining subscription

Acquisition will work the same as freighters - there will be a NPC seeded BPO (with the same distribution as the Orca), it will be a bit cheaper than a freighter BPO, the Bowhead build materials will also be similar to other Freighters but will be be a bit lower. I would expect eventual market price to be 100 or 200 mil lower than other freighters.

It will use capital rigs.

I think it's been said other places but as far as loot - we hope to get a change ready in time for Rhea that will make SMA loot work the same as CHAs where the contents will be inside the wreck on ship death, it's still not totally clear if that will happen in time but it would be in the following release if not.

I'm not convinced about the EHP needing to be higher but I'll bring this to the rest of the team and get back to you.


I'm guess somewhere between this post and patch, they changed it again.

When targetting something by activating a module, the crosshair no longer follow the mouse, until you click or drag it.

So if you have nothing targeted, and you activate, say, your ice harvester, you get a crosshair to target something. Before it would smoothly follow the cursor, but now it just stays there.

Good patch but this bothers me for some reason.

When zooming in or rotating the falcon/rook/etc, the center of the actual ship doesn't feel centered. Once you zoom in, the ship is at the top of the screen when maximum zoomed. It makes it feel odd compared to using other ships when rotating around it, even when zoomed out a bit because of it.

The new map window needs a fastbutton on top to go to your current system.

The new map window does not close on CRTL+W

Most of the icon in the bar on the left have changed and I am forced to relearn what they are.

Everything is so fecking dark now, who thought of this? Did you change the GUI just to be able to annoy people?

No, this will start to happen around the 15th , the reason is we had a delay of getting the initial messaging out and we wanted to give the owners of those accounts 30 days to react.

I log on and i notice that the game changed my DirectX setting from 9 to 11. Second thing I noticed is that turning off blur and setting transparency to 30 made my fps og from 40 to 60.. Shocked

I love you guys at ccp .. really..and while I Already love a lot about Rhea, I'm not getting this change!
I would love to say "we", but I love and am quite used to the icons we had. Why change them to these, seemingly less impressive buttons?

was this in discussion prior to patch? o included in patch notes? ( if so my bad, I simply don't recall seeing it)

I think the ships look amazing ( i play 99% amarr ) but the new interface in stations.... just Why?
