To end the year, CCP added a final quadrant, New dawn, and now EVE Online‘NS Major mining and resource updates are here. The changes are huge and the community feedback through the process has been often controversial and wide-ranging. An update was released today with some tweaks to CCP’s original plan, but still an overhaul in New Eden.
All mining ships have been rebalanced, and the mining barges and excavators have been changed to make them more survivable and yield more resources. Other vessels have also been modified to improve productivity. Changes to ventures, durability, and leads were reverted following feedback from the community that wanted flexibility and an existing structure. CCP has released the full list of changes, including everything to ships and harvestable resources.
Resources also receive an update that will shape the ongoing gameplay and of course the economy. Harvesting is about to get more interesting because resources have been doubled. Some more players have a chance to get a bigger output and it will leave some space for less experienced players to get ahead.
With new resources doubled available, all pairs with increased capacity. Crystal mining gets an overhaul and a new mechanic, mining scum, has a chance to destroy a resource unit from the source. Ore recycling skills other than moon ore are now just new six-level skills in a reorganized system. Those who have trained their reprocessing skill up will see their skill points and ISK refunded for that training.
One of the things CCP has done in recent months is to make the game less shady for new players but also wants to improve accessibility and growth while setting up EVE Online for the future.
