    That
    flash is a minor thing, it's gone next tuesday. Poorly implemented
    contract system? Whaaaaaaaa? Works fine for me so far. Remember this is
    only the first stage of contracts, more changes will be coming in Rev
    II. I've had no problems with the map so far, it kicks ass IMO.

    Do not get me wrong, i like the new redesign, look, and general concepts of most of the changes in Revelations I.  I even agree withmost of the reasons (and in an MMO thats REALLY new for me).

    But (you knew there was going to be a but in here somewhere), Nothing went smooth for me and my characters.
    1. When I went to update and it told me to do it manually, it kept telling me to download the patch for the test server, which this time was diffrent from the usual.  The night before, I decided to download the patch manually and install a second version of the EVE Online client to get a sneakpeak while they were rolling out Rev I on the main server.  after patching my main client, niether would log in, and niether would tell me I had the wrong version.  It just told me to download the same patch I had just installed.
    2. When I uninstalled my clients and mistakenly redownloaded and reinstalled the test server patch, because that was the EVE Online page it kept sending me to, it told me I needed to download another patch and install it.  It sent me to a page that just listed what version the patch would update to.  It didn't say that you had to be using the previous client not updated with the test server patch.  If I hadn't downloaded it in the background and launched it automatically I would have noticed this because IT WAS IN THE NAME OF THE PATCH image (D'oh! that one still burns).
    3. It took uninstalling and reinstalling the old client and patching it 3 times before it would let me back in. (yes I tried redownloading the patch each time)
    4. One of my alts wouldn't switch to so i could check the diffrences for a day and a half.(Patch day Syndrome... no biggie)
    There I was, in the new and prettier world, and in Opera with the new features changelog on the EVE online website  at the same time.  I checked out my charter and ships, and everything seemed good and cooler.


    But...

    I went to the contracts section because it directly affected my living in the world of EVE and I had Suggested that they do something like this and then I heard that they were implimenting it, I couldn't wait...

    I have Assets at 560+ stations across 3 Regions of space.  Courier missions need less to say ispart of doing bisiness for me.  I have had Over 20 courier missions I have posted COMPLETE in a single evening, let alone the ones that were still active in the cue.  The first thing I did with contracts is make a couple of test missions, but on doing itI decided not to issue them.

    As I learned more about thenew related skill that came with contracts things only became worse.  If I trained the skill Contracts to level V, I could only have 15 (or 16, they are not clear about that) outstanding contacts of any type at any time.  This includes Auctions, Item Exchanges (Escrow lite), Courier Mission Contracts, loans and the "freeform contracts".

    the only solution is if I quit my corp, incorperate myself, and never join another corp agian, take corperate contracting to level V.  and still I would eventually use up all of the slots on courier missions.

    the old way of making a Courier Mission:

    I pay broker fee + put reward I am offering in escrow + state collateral I want on the goods being shipped + what to ship + where to ship it to.

    the NEW WAY:

    pay 470% originall broker fee + reward in escrow + state collateral amount + a 'deposit' (I have to pay that is approxamately the value of the the reward and collaterall added together) so I appearently don't ripmyself off image + what to ship + where to go image!!!!

    1. See the post above yours
    2. The Headshots that are your character are also refered to by many as avatars (general term).
    3. many players are having problems with missing or altered facial images
    4. As for the map, lines aren't dark enough and aren't always displaying the proper information.  If I am in one regon of the galaxy and I want to zoom in on another I have to select a star in that region, and if I click on the wrong thing it zooms me back to my location on the map.  if I goto check info on themap as I fly in space  it takes me to system view (practically useless) and to zoom out to galaxy view I have to search a galactic loacation and zoom to it.  Map look pretty.. Work Baaaaaaaaaaaaad.
    5. As for the White flash being a cosmetic thing, for many of Us players they are so bright after about 5 or 6 they really start to hurt the eyes.  When trying out the new map system, I had to watch over 20 on a dark background.  Headache soon ensued.  I am far from the only person complaining about this as being more than "minor annoyance"

    It went pretty smooth in my opinion, the only trouble is that killmails sometimes fail to specify who laid the final blow. Mean that the victim gets his death mail but the agressors don't get a kill mail, you'd be shocked how many players we've owned in 0.0 are reluctant to help our killboards by supplying their death mail! And quite rude about it!

    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience"
