Hi,

A new DB mirror for Singularity has been requested and it is being prepared, but unfortunately it is taking longer than expected. We know that many are waiting for this new mirror, but unfortunately we are bound to the reality and can not use magic or similar tricks.
We have currently no ETA, but I'll update this thread as soon as I know more.

I'd rather have bug fixes done first before applying a new mirror

Have you tried sacrificing a dev or batch of server hamsters to Eyjafjallajökull?

Listen man, Blood makes servers messy, Very Messy, We need to be sacrificing stockpiles of Ram and Processors to the server-gods to lend us their strength. But seriously, blood will only cause shorting and overheating.

The two aren't related. Mirroring just takes a snapshot of the database of TQ, then we prune it to obfuscate sensitive information such as moon minerals and POS positions, then essentially replace Sisi's DB with this new DB. Any bugs in the code (with certain exceptions) will be unaffected by the mirror, and will be fixed in standard development cycles.

so on sisi moon mining is not possible ? i've try to test that but wasnt able to get anything from lowsec or nullsec moon.
as for removing poses i agree its sensitiv to remove them to prevent spying but why block moon itself from mining it

Hey Habakuk if you could throw out a number with like a 25% chance of being right on how many days it will be until Singularity is mirrored what would it be? I know you said theres isnt a definite ETA but i like the idea of having a 25% chance possibility instead of not having any idea at all. especially if its a Dev's opinion lol cant wait to get all my stuff over from TQ the anticipation's killin meh XD lol

To clarify, there is NO way our ships (that we've built on SISI) from this current mirror can be saved into the next mirror ? as in, transferred into the next mirror ?

Is it possible to perhaps get a one-day headsup or so, before this mirror ends ? I'd like to die in my supercap by letting the community take me down, would be fun & i'm pretty sure lots of other supercap-pilots would appreciate that too c:
