Phoebe has been successfully deployed to Tranquility!

The release brings a whole host of new changes, including Invention Updates, changes to travel in New Eden, the new Mission Objective Guidance System, the addition of unlimited skill queues, changes to trial account restrictions, multisell!, changes to exploration content and significant changes to the user interface that should allow easier and more efficient piloting of your spaceships!

You can check out an overview of all these features in CCP Seagull's "Coming to EVE Online with the Phoebe Release" dev blog, and find more granular details in the full patch notes.

Most of all remember to fly safe.

Please provide general feedback in this thread. For any issues you encounter, please post in the Phoebe issues thread.

Happy Birthday To FAWLTY7! <3

Remove being above Compare on the Market Quickbar despite Remove/Cancel, etc. being below it everywhere else feels really weird.

Regarding the Jump Fatigue UI element, I have a quick suggestion. When your fatigue value is 10 minutes or less, it's actually considered to be zero, as far as the jump fatigue formula is concerned. However, if you don't actually know the formula, this fact is pretty obscure and can lead to you waiting more than you really need to wait, especially if you're flying a fatigue-bonused ship such as a Jump Freighter.

My suggestion is to subtract 10 minutes from the jump fatigue time on the in-game UI element. This does not need to be a backend change, only a change in how the number is shown to the user. This might help soften the impact of jump fatigue a little to the less savvy end-user.

Multisell is restricted by skills even when making an immediate sale.

This is absurd.

I understand that when you're making it immediate sell you're still, very briefly, placing a sell order on the market. However there's no reason that the game should be trying to create all of these orders simultaneously, and restricting you to how many orders you can make at once. That just smacks of CCP programmers either not having enough time or imagination to figure out how to work around this. Or more likely, you didn't consider it a problem that "multisell all the things" really turns out not to be the case... for me it happens to be "multisell five things at a time" which just brings us back to a slightly improved version of what we had before. Not exactly what I thought was being advertised.

You really should queue it so that each order is placed sequentially, instead of trying to add all orders simultaneously. If I want to sell 100 items immediately, the game should let me do so regardless of my skills.

When setting up an advanced BUY order, entering prices "below Regional average" gets a red warning despite being beneficial to the buyer while setting up buy-prices "above Regional average" gets a green warning despite being bad for the buyer.... it should be the other way around for both.
Advanced SELLING works correctly (with "below Regional average" being bad for the seller and thus red and vice versa).

Overall positive impression of the patch.

Punkturis did a great job with the multiple sell GUI Market feature. While I have stopped doing heavy trading a long time ago, I do recognise the added convinience such a GUI change gives. Good job!

Other than that; very intrested in seeing how the jump range/fatigue changes affects the game on a strategical level.

The combination of the Ship Mastery level and 1 year skill queue is brilliant. Over the years Ive started training ships, but gotten distracted by new stuff/fleet requirements, often leaving xyz ship requirement only partially trained.
Outstanding synergy and making the players life so much easier.

Fun times ahead ^^

Having the notification settings reset was a bit of a pain, and the bookmarks in space being slightly off-center is killing me.

I just saw someone's post disappear in this thread.
And then it reappeared. Lol.
That's not feedback related though...

How many years of service does it take one to attain the title of General Feedback anyway?

The new scanner stuff is all pretty terrible.

The UI element looks like crap for one. All these spinning lights around my ship's console... no please, it's just distracting. This ain't no disco, this is internet spaceships. The bookmark lights show up even when disabled.

Using the bookmarks themselves is still poorly implemented. I was actually expecting them to show up as entries in the scanner. They cannot be accessed any easier with these changes. One of the first lessons you teach a noob in PVP is don't click things in space, click them in the overview.

Bookmarks change should have included their addition as an element in the scanner or better yet the overview.
Ship in structure? Highlight bookmark in the overview. Spam warp.
Naga sniping? Align to bookmark in the overview. Here come's an inty... closing in... and warp.
That is how it would be useful.

Edit; The bookmark lights can all be disabled now. Guessing it was just a bug. You cannot however disable the disco lights while keeping those elements viewable in space. It would be beneficial to have that functionality.

Then we get to actually using the bookmarks themselves, which cannot be accessed through any menu. Clicking in space is a big no-no, one of the first lessons you teach a noob in PVP is don't click things in space, click them in the overview. The beauty of the bookmark change was that you could warp to a safe more easily.

You can always click the star icon next to the system name in the upper left corner to bring up the same menu that you get from clicking in space.

I don't know why you have such an aversion to clicking in space though... I do it all the time for bookmarks.

Sell order form is only 8 digits long. Would also love if the contents were pre-selected for easy overwriting/copypasting.

Edit: As you can see the percentage is also unreadable on 90% UI.

I don't like the bright orange "This skill cannot be trained on trial accounts" on tooltips in the training queue window.

My account is not a trial account, so why do I have to suffer this eyesore?
