To close out the year, CCP has added the final quadrant, New Dawn, and now EVE Online’s big mining and resource update is here. The changes are extensive, and community feedback through the process was typically contentious and wide-ranging. The update goes live today with some adjustments to CCP’s original plan, but is still quite the overhaul in New Eden.
All mining ships have been rebalanced, and mining barges and exhumers have been changed to make them more survivable and yield more resources. Other ships have been changed to enhance yield as well. Changes for the venture, endurance, and prospect were reverted after community feedback that wanted the flexibility and existing structure. CCP has published a full list of changes, including everything for ships and for harvestable resources.
Resources also get an update that should shape ongoing gameplay and, of course, the economy. Harvesting is about to get more interesting since resources have been doubled. Some more players have a chance at greater yields and it leaves some room for less experienced players to get ahead.
