As part of their refocusing on the “Flying In Space” aspects of EVE Online, CCP have undertaken a beautification of the nebulae found in EVE. They are now more breathtaking than ever.  More importantly they closer you get to the regions that contain or are surrounded by these, the more imposing they are, until you are enveloped by them yourself.  Quite stunning really.

Below I have images taken by myself while playing around on the test server (click for images):

What Region is this? (Seen from Fountain)

On the edge of Delve, I can see Verge Vendor and ??

A closer look at the other region as seen from the cusp of Delve

It appears closer in Querious:

Space right out in Delve, Querious & Period Basis, is often so dark:

The Galactic Rim? Or something else?

Approaching Omist from Feythabolis

Getting closer via Tenerifis:

So pretty

Moving towards hisec space in Immensea

Catch, really has some amazing views:

Views from Khanid space:

Heading towards Domain

Domain Dominates the local skies

The greatness of the Empire lights up Kor-Azor Prime:

Amarr, centre of the Empire:

Lonetrek, from The Citadel

Lonetrek, Too much Blue for this Red to like

Back in Null, and I have this region to find

Still not found it yet, however this Nebulae looks amazing:

Looking at Lonetrek from Metropolis

Metropolis, this is a home for a Red!

Fire & Ice

Inside Perrigen Falls:

Genesis, was largely unimpressive (I expected a huge EVE Gate related nebulae), however it was surrounded by:

New Eden, the place where it all began:

The EVE Gate, in all its shining glory

After 450+ Jumps, 8hrs roaming around EVE on SISI, I feel that is enough.  I have seen and flown thru many of the new nebulae and the following regions:

Syndicate, Placid, Cloud Ring, Fountain, Delve, Querious, Period Basis, Paragon Soul, Esoteria, Feythabolis, Omist, Tenerifis, Immensea, Catch, Khanid, Tash-Murkon, Domain, The Citdael, The Forge, Lonetrek, Vale of the Silent, Tribute, Branch, Tenal, Venal, Fade, Pure Blind, Black Rise, Great Wildlands, Metropolis, Cache, Geminate, Kalevala Expanse, Perrigen Falls, Outer Passage, The Spire, Essence, Everyshore, Genesis.

Although many, many more remain to be discovered, however I shall keep those for when these wonderful additions go live on TQ, and endeavour to take Ganked to visit them all!
