If your getting it stuck at 100% now try letting sit on that for a while and see if it does anything. Also don't delete the shared cache folder contents anymore and maybe try just clearing the cache through the launcher settings. It will cause the launcher to freeze and will require forcing it to close and then restarting but maybe you will get lucky and it will force it to jump start like it did for me.

It is a really odd issue and results I guess do vary. I don't know why it worked for. That is the trouble with trial and error sometimes, makes it hard to know why you get it to work in the end.

The final solution might end up being to just wait until they fix it. If you get to frustrated.

Current issues:

New map icon for scans over 5% does not show up so you don't know where to scan.

Opportunities don't have a way to close them and stay close have had them open unexpectedly when jumping system to system. No opportunity completed however.

Mission opportunities are not working yet.

Remove fitting opportunity is not working.

The new opportunities have no flavor text and are missing some text strings.

Down load on demand is working differently on two different computers.

Really need D-SCAN support for the Beta Map to complete it with probe scanning.

Ummm, why did my feedback about the dumb "opportunities" get deleted? And/or how many others about it have been deleted?

This new function seems like a huge waste of time, especially for older players as it congratulates us for "targeting something" ect...all. the. time.

I typed in C:\Games\Sisi\SharedCache when the launcher asked me and found that Eve had barfed all over my C drive in the process.

Dear Devs,

When prompted I installed the resource cache files to:

R:\ProgramData\CCP\EVE\SharedCache

( R:\ is a ramdisk. )

---

There are no longer wait times of note in Eve. CQ appears within a second. Grids load magically. Logging into eve is almost instant. Undocking and redocking are nearly instant. Sure, any server query requires about a second. Yet once the server sends the information, everything simply appears without -any wait time at all-.

Thank you for this feature. it's completely fantastic.

Followup: system Star Gates do not always have their black, swirling space animation between systems, or the animation appears for a second or two, and then the user appears in the next system. This is excellent!

[Not being sarcastic here btw. This genuine feature / option is wonderful]

New map now has a icon when scanning over 5% When I warped to the location the green 100% location vanished and I thought the icon disappeared but it was only stacked with the I am here icon. This not being able to see more then one icon is a big issue with this map.

A follow me option needs to be added to the new map also so but the issues of showing the scan UI icons over a system that the probes are not actually deployed in still will be a issue.

A D scan wedge would be nice alsoTwisted

Master music is really low.

It certainly is useless for veterans, when it comes to the very basic achievements the system checks for. It's still targeted towards new players. As only new accounts have access to that on TQ and the implementation is for all players on Sisi, we'll have to wait for an option to turn it off completely. Unless we want to test the extra/new achievements that got added there and report bugs we find. And there are several.

Not sure wether this comes with Scylla, or earlier. The option to invert zoom direction will be quite useful for many, I guess.

Thank you CCP Terminus and CCP karkur!

Ok, trying probing with the new map again.

1) Scroll inertia is still a cruel mistress. Disable it past a certain zoom level so it wouldn't work in a system view.
2) Signatures of unidentified type are shown as black blimps. On black space. Yeah. Right.
3) Probe icons are in the way. With the standard pinpoint formation the central probe and the probe positioning cube are in the same place, and the cube can not be grabbed because the probe is on top of it. Either remove probe positions from the map (they can be identified by the spheres) or, better yet, make the control cube always on top so nothing would get in it's way including celestials.

You can remove probes in the show things options list in the header.
Agree with the rest.

The Distance where the probe spheres disappears when zooming out needs to be increased a little more.

Auto recovery of probes by gate jumping reloads the probe launcher. When this happens the probes stay visible in the previous system.

0% to 25% icon missing and the fact that the location is not persistent and disappears after mouse release when moving probes around.

Currently having to click the my location icon twice to actually show the system I am in.

Doing a new character run with NPE with fresh DoD.

Station Services fit a module Opp not working when fitting a dropped civilian module.

Player fitting an active shield module would expect the fitting window to change when fitting, a "when activated" in the tool tip would help that confusion.

Not having isk needed to buy skill books to use dropped modules is an issue.

Civilian modules require industry level 1? Can this be changed or given please.

whenever you adjust probe size, the cosmic signature becomes unselected and no longer shows up on the map (you have to adjust, go find the sig in the probing window, click it to show the black dot (change the color please), then scan.

Hey! Never done a feedback for SiSi before because I've never felt so strongly about a change, but I submitted a Support Ticket, turns out you devs can see them :) so they told me to post what I said in the ticket here:

I heavily dislike the the new tags for ships/drones etc in space.

I think that that is too much information to be trying to display, there is no need to show that kind of information for how much it clutter the screen. I've been playing with it on Sisi and its just impossible to see things in a clutter. The information is easily accessible by just hovering over the target, which is nor really hard to do (because you can't even find them in the mess of icons)

I'd like to know if it will be or ask CCP to consider it to be optional only. Is that something that will be considered?

Opportunities:

From the newStuff Achievements Group:

Could'nt trigger Unfit a Module while docked and sitting in a Reaper. Modules tried: Civilian Gatling Autocannon, Civilian Miner, Sensor Booster II. Boarding a Slasher and using the same modules also did'nt do anything

Selling your Stuff is subject to fail when a rookie attempts to sell an assembled Module, Blueprint (used BPO, BPC), used charges that have volatility (though this is unlikely to happen early in a rookie's career). But with the host of Civilian [whatever] Blueprint BPCs dropped by NPC in Rogue Cloning Facility sites (assumning a rookie actually warps there), there'll most likely be some that wonder where the "Sell This Item" entry is.

Adding an Opportunity for repackaging an item might help for modules, but not for blueprints/charges. But those could be added to the short guidance for such kind of Opportunity

Load Charges - Optimal outcome: The rookie checked his skills, found that he's got skills to operate small [turret weapon type] and therefore purchases such type of weapon. From that weapon's information, he finds the correct type of charge this turret can load.
Other option: he uses the career agents' rewards and completes this opportunity that way.

The latter does'nt require him to get any info beforehand \o/

From the extras Achievements Group:

This order is to be changed, right?
Further guidance hints in all of the extras are yet to be added, I guess?
I also already created a BR (EBR-34066) for "Refine ore" (Reprocess Ore since Crius)

So I try'd to update the Mac client today and got the prompt to either use the client on demand or not. I opted not to since I know the Mac will crash, but now sisi is wanting to download the whole 16gis rather than use what I already have for sisi now. Should you select the download on demand if you already have the client installed, or is this patch a new full download either way?

TQ builds are here:

Issues found.

Still getting notifications of 9 opportunities complete ting each and every time I log in. Notifications do not save and show up again as new when logging in again.

Beta map if you locate it stuck to the right or left does not save when you log out could this be done?

When resizing spheres the location disappears until after rescan. The fact that the 0 to 25% results in only a black dot is this by design its different.

New opportunities are not in this build. (per patch notes 4 where added. Are there triggers now to add them?

DoD needs a note in the launcher or the patch notes stating that original game files cannot be converted or if they can how to do that.

The command line tool tool to test if all the files are in place is not yet in the launcher.
