Released on Tuesday, November 15, 2016
Hooked up some new sounds when docking in stations; one for each race.
Clone States and Free EVE Online
EVE characters will be assigned one of two distinct clone states: Alpha or Omega
Accounts with an active subscription and their corresponding characters will be assigned the Omega Clone State and will work the same as subscribed characters have previously.
Unsubscribed accounts and their corresponding characters will now fall into Alpha State, which allows free access to EVE Online using a specific list of skills and skill levels.
Omega Clone State
Assigned to all characters on subscribed accounts
Faster training rate and longer skill queue than Alpha State
Allowed to train and use all skills, ships and modules
Alpha Clone State
Assigned to all characters on unsubscribed accounts
May train and use skills from a specific list which focus on Frigates, Destroyers, and Cruisers along with basic Industry ships
List of allowed skills varies depending on character faction
If you are returning after lapse, the faction chosen at character creation will be used to determine which skill list you have as an Alpha
Accounts lapsing from Omega to Alpha will have their training queue paused and will have previously trained skills outside the Alpha set disabled until subscription is renewed
Alpha characters may not be logged in simultaneously from the same location as other active EVE Online clients. For details please see our End User License Agreement
Account services such as PLEX, Multiple Character Training, and Skill Trading are available to characters of both Clone States, which the exception that characters in the Alpha State may not extract skills from the Alpha skill set.
For more information on Clone States, including the Alpha skill list, FAQs, and community discussion, see these Dev Blogs:
Blueprints for all these modules will also be converted accordingly, along with any ongoing Science/Industry jobs
The Command Processor I mid-slot module will be converted to a Medium Command Processor I rig. Any instances of this module currently fitted to a ship will be unfitted before conversion and moved to the ship's cargo hold.
All T1/T2 Mining Foreman Link modules to T1/T2 Mining Command Burst modules. More information is available in the blog Mining Foreman Revolution
All T1/T2 Skirmish Warfare Link modules to T1/T2 Skirmish Command Burst modules
All T1/T2 Siege Warfare Link modules to T1/T2 Shield Command Burst modules. (Note that "Siege" is being renamed to "Shield" to better reflect how it operates)
All T1/T2 Information Warfare Link modules to T1/T2 Information Command Burst modules
All T1/T2 Armored Warfare Link modules to T1/T2 Armor Command Burst modules
Existing market orders and contracts containing these items will be cancelled and refunded
Note that the Command Bursts modules require Command Burst Charges in order to operate. These charges were introduced in the previous release in order to allow supplies to be built in advance.
The Rorqual sees changes and additions to its specialty modules: more information is available in the blog Mining Foreman Revolution
The Industrial Core module has been significantly improved, and a new tech II version has been added.
The Pulse Activated Nexus Invulnerability Core module is a new Rorqual-exclusive defensive superweapon. It allows the Rorqual to make itself and its allies invulnerable for a short time. This new module requires a new rank 8 skill called Invulnerability Core Operation.
Phenomena Generators have been introduced. Titans will be able to fit these new modules (one per race) that apply timed bonuses and penalties to ships over an extremely large area. Unlike Command Bursts, Effect Generators impact ALL ships within their defined area (friend or foe).
Entosis Link I module now requires Infomorph Pyschology II (was Infomorph Psychology I).
All small artillery weapons have had their powergrid requirements reduced by 2.

Please note, that for the Ascension release only brand new accounts with new characters will be able to participate in the updated tutorial.
The brand new Star Captain SKIN is now available for the Confessor hull.
In celebration of the launch of the Ascension expansion, the New Eden Store is hosting a massive sale of all store ship SKINs.
Science & Industry
The build, research and copy times of capital and structure blueprints have been increased. Find the details and discussion in this forum thread.
Improvement and changes to Industrial Command Ships:
The Porpoise is a new ship Industrial Command Ship that fills the hole at the bottom of the mining foreman ship progression line (further information).
The Orca is receiving a massive overhaul, with huge buffs to almost every attribute. It will be a mining powerhouse, a heavy duty ore hauler, a significant combat deterrent, and the strongest foreman burst platform available in highsec space (further information).
The Rorqual is getting a revamp from the ground-up - It will be capable of providing strong Mining Foreman Bursts, repairing allies and fighting off enemies, and vacuuming up ore faster than any other ship in New Eden (further information). The Rorqual will no longer be able to dock at Astrahus citadels, in order to bring its docking restrictions in to line with other capital ships.
The unpackaged volume of Hulks and Covetors will be dropping by 25% to make them easier to haul and store.
The Bowhead ORE Freighter is also receiving some improvements:
Slightly improved hitpoints and agility
37.5% reduced mass to match ORE’s commitment to improved wormhole utility
23% more capacity for the Bowhead’s Ship Maintenance Bay
Tactical Destroyers have been rebalanced. All the details and discussion can be found in this forum thread.
The new Sunesis destroyer has been introduced. Find the details and discussion in this forum thread.

Ice Harvester Drone Operation: 5% reduction in ice harvester drone cycle time per level.
Ice Harvester Drone Specialization: 2% reduction in cycle time and bonus to max velocity of drones requiring Ice Harvester Drone Specialization per level.
Added new skill Invulnerability Core Operation - requirement for Rorqual's new PANIC module.
Added new skill Spatial Phenomena Generation - requirement for Titan's new Phenomena Generator modules.
The requirements for training the Command Ships skill have been adjusted, significantly reducing the time required before the skill can be obtained. Find the details and discussion in this forum thread.
When undocking any ship from a Citadel or Engineering Complex that would not be able to re-dock at that structure, a warning confirmation will now be displayed explaining that this will be a one-way undock.
The number of service module slots on Citadels have been reduced. The details and discussion can be found in this forum thread.
The skill queue will now pause and restart without intervention after a Clone Jump.
A new character sheet has been introduced for EVE Online: Ascension.

Omega items have the Omega item added to the Show Info window.
Minor text changes to Fast Checkout window when Fast Checkout needs to be activated.
The buff-bar has been enhanced to support the new Command Burst mechanics. The buff-bar is designed to show timers that are associated with your ship.
The incoming buffs that your ship receives from Command Bursts will now show up in this area. There will be one icon for each of the 5 Command Burst categories. A timer animation will show the duration of the buff, and tooltips will give more details of individual buff durations/values.
A number of other buff/debuff effects have been also integrated in to this system, including the Titan Phenomena Generators, Supercarrier Burst Projectors and the Rorqual PANIC module.
The warp-scrambling debuff side-effect of super-weapons will also appear here, showing the countdown until it has cleared.
Timers that are associated with your character (such as Criminal flags, Weapons timer etc) will continue to appear in the upper-left of the screen - these will follow your character regardless of ship switching (including whilst docked in station).
Searching in personal assets and in corporation assets is now also returning items in structures like Citadels and Engineering Complexes.
Several changes have been made to the fitting window. Most notably is the addition of the Fitting Simulation.
Other improvements to the fitting window include:
When mouse-over modules while in normal fitting mode, the fitting window will no longer show preview in yellow text. This functionality has been moved to simulation mode, which provides an accurate preview.
Textures in the fitting window have been updated.
"Alpha strike" has been added to the damage section.
Damage sections now show combined dps with a tooltip that details how the dps is divided between weapons systems. In addition to raw dps, it also displays dps with module reload times taken into account.
A 'Fuel' section has been added for structures. It shows how much fuel the online services consume per day.
A 'Drone' section has been added to the fitting window. The drone panel lists bandwidth and drone control range of the deployed drones or the top drones in your drone bay.
"Align time" has been added to the navigation section. This is the time it takes for a ship to go into warp from a standstill.
Armor repair rate in the defense section now takes into account whether Ancillary repairers are charged or not.
Capacitor simulation estimation now takes into account capacitor boosters and their reload times.
Saving fitting from fitting window will now include the load charges.
A "Group All" button has been added. It can be found in the gap between rig slots and high slots
Effective hitpoints now assumes omni-damage, rather than the damage the ship is weakest to.
Text readout of the calibration output and load has been removed. This info can be found by mouse-over the calibration gauge next to the rig slots
The ship name has been moved to the left side of the ship.
Price estimation of the fit has been added to the fitting window. It has a tooltip that lists the prices of the ship and the fitted items. The prices used for the estimation are the global averages for each of the types.
The 'Save' fit button has been moved to a new panel in the left side of the window. The panel can be accessed by clicking the 'Browser' tab.
The 'Strip' button has been removed. This option is available in the ship's right click menu.
The 'Browse' button has been removed, and instead a new fitting browser has been added. It's still possible to access the fitting management window, either from the E button in the Neocom (or for now, by double clicking on the 'Hulls & Fits' tab)
The fitting management windows have been updated:
The windows will now use icons to indicate whether the fit is personal or corp owned. For corp fittings, by default, the ‘Save’ button will save the fits as corp fits, but for personal or unsaved fits it will save it as a personal fit.
For those with the corp role Fitting Manager, the 'Save' button will have a tooltip allowing you to save it either for the corp or the character.
The name of the fitting can by modified by clicking the fitting name.
The 'Rename ship to fitting name' has been moved to a setting wheel.
Fits can now be imported and exported from the fitting window through the ‘Import & Export’ option in the left panel of the window.
Fixed a case where it was possible to end up with a T3 cruiser with missing subsystems after applying a fitting from a link.
It is now possible to trash asset safety wraps.
Corrected the materials received when reprocessing the Standup L-Set Ice Grading Processor rigs.

Materiel efficiency: "Efficacité matérielle" is now "Efficience matérielle"
Info shard: "Fragment d'information" is now "Partition de données"
Location marker: "Marqueur d'emplacement" is now "balise astrospatiale"
The citadel docking restrictions for the Rorqual now correctly match those of other capital ships. This means that Rorquals will no longer be able to dock at Astrahus citadels.
Science & Industry
You can no longer invent a Capital Capacitor Booster II blueprint from a Capital Compact Pb-Acid Cap Battery blueprint.
Resolved an issue which caused some brief client stutter when logging into a character that is in space.
Fixed a timing problem, which could in rare cases lead to being tethered to a citadel while being many AU away from the citadel.

Patch notes for YC118.9 Release 1.7
Published on Tuesday, November 1st, 2016
The post processing (PP) system has been refactored. This has led to client performance improvements on all GPUs. In addition to giving our PP engine more horsepower, we have improved the bloom effect and consolidated options such as HDR and 'crepuscular rays’ into the PP system.
A new graph library has been developed and replaces the old market graphs, this makes visualizing data more interesting and interactive and will allow us to do more interesting things with data visualization in the future.
Science & Industry:
The blueprints for Command Burst charges are now for sale, allowing players to build the charges in anticipation of November's fleet boost revamp.
The Caedes and Rabisu Alliance Tournament prize ships have been added to the game. You can check this forum thread for their stats and bonuses. Follow the Alliance Tournament XIV weekends on CCP's official twitch channel (October 8/9 and 15/16) and watch live to see who is winning the prize ships!
Paste %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\ into the command window. This will open a file explorer where you should see a number of folders.
Find the suitable folder. The folder should be the the path to your exefile executable (for example "c_eve_sharedcache_tq_tranquility").
Open that folder and then "settings", then "Browser" (in our example, the path to that folder would be %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\c_eve_sharedcache_tq_tranquility\settings\Browser).
Locate a file called bookmarks.dat. This file contains your bookmarks.
Corrected a bug that would cause the booster explosion radius penalty to always apply.
All drones have had their sensors checked and calibrated, so that they now have their appropriate racial sensors.
Warp Disruption & Warp Scrambling now have different combat log messages.
Stargates would occasionally express their envy of dynamic objects by moving to a different position in their solar system after downtime. They have now been properly anchored and should remain firmly in their intended positions. "Pity the poor stargate, destined to remain forever immobile whilst faithfully sending ships towards locations that it can never know."
Activation of Clone Vat Bays no longer prevents tethering.
Prevented a situation where the wrong ship could sometimes be ejected in to space when undocking after rapidly switching ships.
Warp Disruptors and Warp Scramblers now have different graphical effects.
Fixed the visibility of eyebrows for certain colors.
Fixed an issue that would disable the autopilot under certain circumstances.
Unjammed the turret mounts on the Vehement so that they extend properly under siege mode.
Applied some grease to the wheels on the Vanquisher so that they turn again
Adjusted the 'Look at' camera distance for both cynosural & covert cynosural beacons.
Fixed an issue with Aura voiceover looping over spammed commands.

All ship tree ambient effects are correctly muted when the "Map & Ship Tree" audio slider is set to 0.
The AE-K Compact Drone Damage Amplifier now correctly drops from NPCs.
Improvements of several Russian translations to be clear, shorter and closer to the English original, e.g. "Shields" are not translated as «щиты» instead of «силовые поля», and "Damage" is now translated as «урон» instead of «поражающее действие».
"XL" and "Capital" when referring to a module or charge size are now consistently translated as «Сверхбольшой».
The market categories, ship bonuses, skill names and skill descriptions have been fully reviewed and adapted to be consistent with the new terminology changes.
Resolved an inconsistency in the description of skills using "Notice" instead of "Note".
Removed a number of occurrences where double-spaces and other incorrect punctuation appear in descriptions.
Fixed a bug which sometimes caused a too high drone dps display in the fitting screen.
Made the market window more resilient against server lag and connection latency to prevent reloading the market data for an old item after having already selected a new one, which could have caused accidental purchases.
