EVE Online for Mac1919884

28 July 2021

Massive multiplayer online game set in outer space.

What is EVE Online for Mac

EVE Online is a massive multiplayer online game (MMOG) set in a science-fiction based, persistent world. Players take the role of spaceship pilots seeking fame, fortune, and adventure in a huge, complex, exciting, and sometimes hostile galaxy.

A nominal monthly subscription is charged for each player's account; users are responsible for their own Internet service fees. EVE is not a stand-alone, single player game and can only be played online. Unlike most MMOGs that split a large player base up among small clones of the same game world (called "shards") containing no more than 3,000 people, EVE is unique in that all of its players inhabit the same game world.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it offers in-App Purchases. More info here.

What's new in EVE Online

Version 1919884 (2021-07-27.1):
Graphics:
  • The Encounter Surveillance System has received a new visual update.
  • The in-space model has been updated.
  • Perimeter lighting now reflects the range players need to be within to access the banks.
  • The new model will now animate when the banks are accessed by Capsuleers.
  • Visual Effects will now play when accessing the ESS.
  • Effects will play for accessing the Main or Reserve Banks
  • The effects will reflect the time of payout when a capsuleer receives the encrypted bonds from the ESS.
  • A new warp disruption bubble is now present for the ESS. This effect is more subtle than the previous iteration and will change visible prominence depending on the camera zoom level.
  • When zoomed in, this will increase the subtlety of the effect.
  • Zoom out to see more clearly the borders of the bubble.
Exploration:
  • Secure Commerce Commission (SCC) Secure Key Storage Sites (SKS sites) are now distributed throughout low-security space. These well-hidden and hard to access sites are fiercely protected by the SCC against any unwanted trespass. Rumor has it from the Guristas Pirates is that behind every SKS site lies an ESS Reserve Security Key, whether you want to believe the rumor them or not is up to you.
  • Roaming NPCs throughout Pochven are changing which points of interest to explore. Triglavian fleets will focus their attention on Stations and Conduit Loop stargates, while EDENCOM NPCs will turn their eyes to sites and celestial locations (such as planets). Drifters and Rogue Drones will be more common around wormholes. Conflict zones will be around Planets, Suns, and the Dazh Liminality Locus. To know exactly where else these NPCs will roam to we will leave for you to discover.
Market:
  • New Eden received a sales tax reduction of 50% in all regions.
  • Brokers’ fees are also reduced by 50%, so the Advanced Broker Relations skill will now provide a 6% relist fee reduction per level instead of 5% (max reduction at level 5 will now be 80%).
Missions & NPC:
  • The restrictions on rewards granted through sites in Pochven (such as Observatory Flashpoints) have been changed. Rewards will now be paid out similar to how Incursions work, in that only a single fleet which has done the most damage and healing inside the site will receive the payout. Only those fleet members present in the site at the time the reward is granted will receive rewards if they are eligible (Eligibiliy is: Not cloaked, Not inside a rookie ship/Shuttle/Capsule/Zephyr).
Game Systems:
  • Encounter Surveillance System (ESS) has received an update to its gameplay: Reserve Banks.
  • The Reserve Banks are now able to be intruded upon with the use of an ESS Reserve Security key.
  • Reserve Banks once opened, will begin to pay out every minute to any Capsuleer who is linked.
  • Every Capsuleer who is linked at the time of the payout will receive a share of the money in encrypted bonds (to be redeemed on the market from NPC Sell Orders).
  • Capsuleers can only maintain an intrusion link to one bank at a time (Main or Reserve).
  • ESS Reserve Security Keys are now available.
  • These keys allow the keyholder to trigger a release of encrypted bonds from the ESS Reserve Banks. The keys are assigned to quadrants of New Eden's regions and are available in two variations which unlock the reserve bank for either 15 or 45 minutes.
Structures & Deployables:
  • The Defunct Encounter Surveillance System deployable has now a decay component of 14 days, removing the last of the old ESS deployables from space.
User Interface:
  • Added a brand new in-space User Interface with the Encounter Surveillance System.
  • This new in-space UI is a major milestone which unlocks exciting potential for EVE Online.
  • The UI will react to camera angles and zoom levels.
  • Elements of the UI are anchored to the physical locations of the Main and Reserve bank.
  • This will show intrusions into the Main and Reserve Bank with timers.
  • Out of range markers will also show when your ship can not access the ESS.
  • Updated the ESS Info-Panel with more information.
  • Both Main and Reserve bank information is now present.
  • Intrusions into either bank are updated immediately.
  • The section title for Main Bank and Reserve Bank can be clicked to open up the transaction log for intrusions.
  • When a security intrusion starts, a Warp To button will appear for players to warp to the site if they are not already there.
  • The Reserve Bank section will show more information on mouse-over.
  • A collapsed version of the info-panel is also available which reduces the size of the panels elements.
  • Removed the ESS Window.
Localization:
  • Removed mention of skill loss from Strategic Cruiser traits tab.

The game has a massive learning curve, but I found when taking it very slowly it's not so bad to figure out. Don't expect to be flying massive ships in huge battles any time soon. The client runs well on my Mac (MacBook Air) though it does tax the CPU (the top corner of the keyboard gets hot after a while). Graphics look great and I've not had any technical issues.

One of the best MMO games out there. The learning curve is indeed very steep! But there is no other game as realistic as EVE Online.

Overall a big disappointment. Graphics are suburb - the only positive quality of this game. The interface is screaming for simplicity...twice I "lost" my ship, and had to resort to chat to get help in finding it. Chat community was borderline hostile, with many not only not offering help, but instead treating my requests for help with acerbic and obnoxious commentary. But my main complaint (as if the chat wasn't enough) is that there are too many buttons!!! There are drawers, folders, icons galore in the main interface. Too confusing, it requires more than the 14 days my trail was limited to. It would be vastly improved if it were not for that one glaring problem. I should have to buy a book just to pick up the basics...MMORPG should be "jump right in" with skills picked up along the way, rather than the gameplay hindered often and frequently with searches on Google for how to do this, and how to do that. Pretty disappointing!

For what it is, a space trading and PvP strategy game, it is unsurpassed. It is actively developed and consistently improving. It grows on you and before long one is delving deeper and deeper into adventure and riches. Good stuff.

Apocrypha is running very well, considering the forced graphics upgrade from the classic client. I'm running 10.4.11 on a 2.33GHz iMac (upgraded 256meg 7600 card) and it's still quite playable with all graphics setting turned to high -- though for big battles I'll probably need to lower some settings.

This game is the most extensive MMORPG I have ever seen. Its economic aspect has been the subject of numerous WSJ articles and is widely regarded as a completely accurate economic model. The PVP of this game is a lot of fun as well. The universe is extremely expansive as well and the possibilities are endless. This game makes WoW looks like childs-play (this is coming from a former hardcore raider) The current stability of the client is slightly buggy though. I have confidence in CCP that they will iron out all the issues soon, considering they just released an enormous expansion. oh yeah, did i mention all expansions are free?! WOOT :D

It is not $20 per month to play. It is $20 to set up an account and get one month of play. After that at is $15 per month. Month to Month 71.70 for 6 months 131.41 for 12 months. When setting up a new account you can also get a 14 day free trial. I believe this pricing is virtually identical to WOW.

After starting the download (slow high speed,) I checked their website. It is $20 a month - is any game worth $240 a year to play? On downloading the game, this file is just a patch. Now to find the game to see if it is worth it.

For Windows there's a version with "Premium Graphics Content": "The same game software as Classic, plus the Premium Graphics Content for all ships, stations and stargates." Mac and Linux users can't currently download this it seems. :( I guess there aren't any affordable graphics cards for the Mac that are capable to run the game with that detail anyway... >:( I'm tired of being a "second class citizen" when it comes to gaming just because I prefer the Mac OS. Apple: do something! :)

Just an FYI- The Mac client will time out without warning (or any indication that it did, for that matter) if you take too long to make your character (and why wouldn't you?) The only solution at this time is to take a screenshot and start over and try to duplicate your choices. Not exactly a great new-user experience... LAME! Please fix!

I played this game a couple of years ago on a PC. Now I'm playing it on my Intel iMac 2.4. Very smooth graphics at the highest resolution of 1680x1050. Very excellent game in my opinion.

I was always a bit curious about this game, although I never had a computer capable of running it natively. Having played it previously, I was highly interested in the Mac version, even if it was merely a wrapper around the original Windows version. Sadly, the game has proven completely unusable for me. In the first few minutes of designing a character, I was disconnected three times and crashed another two. When I finally got into the game with a character, I crashed again with a runtime error. Although others are having a good time right now with it, it's my feeling currently that I was trying to run an alpha version of a product, not a final release. Perhaps a future version will do better.

NOooo!!! There goes the rest of my spare time! I'd managed to tell myself that it wasn't worth getting a PC to play this game. But now...
