The planets look amazing. But surprisingly to me, the stars added a whole lot to the background. I heard the stars were getting a graphical upgrade, but didn't think it would add too much to the game. But they did for me, along with the much nicer looking planets.

Seeing a plasma planet from the ground would be incredibly cool.

I am posting in game through the new browser for Eve. The new planets look really good.

The game is running faster and smoother since the patch. The new browser and email system are now modern and slick. The planets are a little disappointing, not looking as good as the hype suggested. Maybe this will improve over time.

I like the new red alerts you get when your shiled and armour deplete. And the fleet finder is a big improvement.

The planets do indeed look very good.

It's just a shame that they didn't change the data along with the graphics.

We now have "temperate" planets with an average temperature of around 20K (that's cold enough to freeze oxygen)

That's coming with the next expansion if I believe.

They didn't promise T3 frigs for Dominion they'll be in a future patch.

CCP doesn't do one huge patch every 1.5 to 2 years, nor do they make you pay $50 either. EVE have two major patches per year plus minor ones once to twice a year.

The Sov changes have a 7-day grace period and will, of course, mostly effect 0.0 space. There will be ripples if there is many huge fights for Sov increasing demand for ships/modules/ammo.

have you seen the patch notes?

The planets are amazing and I agree with the other poster about the stars. It really has added a lot to the gam.

Eve is definitely one of the most beautiful games out there.

Everything looks better now, including the starting screen, planets, window boxes, stars, etc...

I'm finally getting around to the free trial, and really enjoying it.
Even the fetch quests are fantastic. The game has a nice pace - you actually find yourself reading the quest text, not just clicking and running...
