The Structure Browser contains information about what structures and stations are accessible and what services they offer.
The structure browser is in the NeoCom or by setting a shortcut in the ESC menu
All players can see the "All Structures" tab and this will show all structures they have docking access and the services available. From here players can search for specific types of structures or specific services.
Only players with the roles of Station Manager, Director, or CEO will see the "My Structures" tab.
The My Structures tab is where members of the corporation with the correct roles can see what profiles they have and to which structures they are assigned. The "My Structures" tab is also where the different access rights, tax rates, and ISK fees can be set. The "My Structures" tab will also show how much fuel the structures have remaining and what state of vulnerability they are currently in.
Structures such as Citadels do not consume fuel, but the Service Modules that are installed in them do. There is an initial onlining cost of 3 days worth of fuel which is taken from the fuel bay when a Service is onlined. There is an additional running cost which will take fuel from the Fuel Bay every hour that the Service is online.
Different Services use different amounts of fuel, and the details are shown on each Service Module.
Structures like the Citadel offer a bonus to the amount of fuel used by Citadel specific service modules.
Structures will accept any of the 4 currently available fuel blocks:
- Helium Fuel Block
- Oxygen Fuel Block
- Nitrogen Fuel Block
- Hydrogen Fuel Block
As of the 8th of September a roll-out of a new feature has started, named Quantum Cores. At certain time intervals the the feature will start to affect new Upwell Structure, until eventually every Upwell Structure will require a Quantum Core to function. The timeline is as follows:
- Seeding - 8 September 2020
- Required for new structures – 13 October 2020
- Required for existing structures - 12 January 2021
Seeding - Live on Tranquility now
Beginning with the update on 8 September, Quantum Cores are now available on the market. You can now begin acquiring them and moving them to your existing structures in space, or to prep for deployment of new structures.
All existing structures now have a new bay available to them, the Core Room. This is where you have the ability to install the core into any existing structure's Core Room to be fully prepared for the future.
Required for new structures - 13th of October 2020
The second phase of the roll-out will enforce the rule that Quantum Cores will be a required installation to complete the anchoring process for any newly deployed structures. This phase is expected to go live during the October update.
Deploying a structure in space will also include a notice of requirement for the installation of a core through the deployment UI window when choosing a structure name, profile, and reinforcement settings.
Required for existing structures - 12th of January 2021
The final phase for the roll-out of Quantum Cores will see some basic services that all structures offer become disabled until a core is installed. Without a core installed, ship fitting, tethering, and ship/module repair services will be disabled. As soon as the core is installed into the structure, these services will become operational again. This phase is expected to go live in the December update.
Quantum Cores - function
Once the anchoring process is complete a Quantum Core must be inserted into the structure before it can be brought online. These are sold by NPC corporations and each structure has a corresponding core.
|Structure||Required Core||Value (ISK)||Core Volume|
|Astrahus||Astrahus Upwell Quantum Core||600,000,000||500 m3|
|Athanor||Athanor Upwell Quantum Core||700,000,000||500 m3|
|Raitaru||Raitaru Upwell Quantum Core||800,000,000||500 m3|
|Fortizar||Fortizar Upwell Quantum Core||4,000,000,000||50,000 m3|
|Tatara||Tatara Upwell Quantum Core||3,500,000,000||50,000 m3|
|Azbel||Azbel Upwell Quantum Core||3,000,000,000||50,000 m3|
|Keepstar||Keepstar Upwell Quantum Core||30,000,000,000||95,000 m3|
|Sotiyo||Sotiyo Upwell Quantum Core||10,000,000,000||95,000 m3|
Once a core is inserted into an anchored structure it can be brought online.
Cores will always drop from destroyed structures that had them installed. Likewise, when a structure is decommissioned (unanchored) the Quantum Core will be moved into a container in space.
Structure Power State
Structures can be in two different power states, depending on if they have any service modules online.
If a structure has at least one service module online, it is considered to be in "Full Power" mode and will undergo an additional reinforcement cycle should it come under attack. If no service modules are installed or online, the structure will be considered to be at "low power" and will be considerably easier to destroy. A structure in low power mode will be indicated in the structure browser with the following symbol:
