Hey folks,

Sorry, but the Polaris ships will remain unattainable for players during this test. You're really not missing out on anything. We only fly the ships when we're working and ergo need to be protected from dying. I'll be logged in to Solace and you bet I will not be flying anything starting with Polaris!

Will post again to answer the rules queries once we wrap up that discussion.

But on a more serious note, can we have access to these special ships on test servers?

Would be awesome of you!

Good to see a bunch of big boys are so excited at unboxing their thanksgiving presents. Please put them together and bring us players the wonder of computing technology.

All 5s? Titan fleets anyone? That was pretty fun last time.

The new server sounds really good and getting to mess around with max skill points is great, but it would be nice to get a full seeded market of all the stuff for example, all the shiny and rare ships like the Freki, Mega fed issue, AT ships and the Revenant super carrier also the other supers. As this server will only be up for a short time until it goes live as main server. I know you don't like to seed shiny stuff but as this is only going to be running for a short time I thought it would be good as a one off, also will we get the moveme commands?

It's probably worth telling people here that Solace won't show up as selectable, unless you tell it to make it work.

The E in the top right, settings, then tick the box next to solace, to make it actually work.

Woo! CSM XI!

Here's the news item that was just posted:

Hello testing capsuleers, new and old, subbed and un-subbed.

Ever dream of flying an Imperial Apocalypse? How about self-destructing 50 Gold magnates?

Well, now you can! Simply show up for the Ops Super Special Mega Shiny Solace Hardware Fun Time Event happening tomorrow, Dec 4th starting at 15:00 UTC! Dont worry too much if you miss this one as we plan on having a second event once we move all the hardware to the new data center in London, sometime in January. To participate, grab the new beta launcher and change your server to Solace from the drop down menu.


While we were not able to get you into Dev Ships, we have been able to work it so everything else is on the table. Or in this case, IN the table, ha! Get it? A table, a DB table! Cause you know, databases! *sigh Damn it Jim, Im a DBA not a content writer! (Ed note: we do not endorse bad DBA jokes).* Wait, where was I? Oh yea, Guardian Vexors? 100 ISK.Old alliance tournament ships such as the Mimir? 100 ISK. This is THE place to be!


Now just to be clear, the goal of this first ever OSSMSSHFTE isnt necessarily a stress test of the hardware. But rather just a fun event where we can feel good about having a cluster up and running on the new hardware.While we ARE curious how it behaves, were more interested in just having virtual spaceships exploding in all their pixely glory to celebrate the coming of Tranquility Tech III.


So with that said, Ops is looking forward to not only flying with you, but also deleting your accounts (on the Solace server) if you do bad things like buying out the market of all items or really anything else that that strikes us as wrong or 'unbecoming of a good test server citizen'. Additionally, we have not requested any support from QA or CS for this; so if things dont work for you, were sorry but youre basically out of luck. Please also do not file any tickets or bug reports based on anything you experience on Solace during this test.


One last thing: We have altered the deal and hacked the Gibson to re-activate every account that has subscribed at any point since 2014.01.01! So tell everyone! Just be aware that if you cant remember your password from back then, we have no way to help you and again, youll be sadly out of luck.
We look forward to seeing you all there!

Wow, sounds like a cool test. Thanks for the writeup on the hardware, I always like seeing things about the guts TQ runs on :).

Is Singularity down due to the change in hardware and how long is it down for?

What do I do if I don't have Solace as an option in the drop down menu? It's not even in the list of test servers in the launchers settings

http://imgur.com/y2yTXWF

EDIT: May have found it.. apparently there are 2 seperate settings windows.. one with the visual style of the launcher and another accessed from the top right that looks like it came out of windows 95.. the latter one had Solace as an option in the settings, and checking that box and restarting launcher made it show up in the drop down..

CCP You may want to clarify this. I'm sure I'm not the only one that had issues finding it.

Solace has been added in the web gui settings - if it doesn't show up, try restarting the launcher.

So we sorta broke the markets by seeding ALL the things to ALL the stations...

We've had to revert back to only seeding stations in the main systems that we picked. You can use /moveme to get to any of these:

Thera
Egghelende
Aunenen
Tama

I've managed to run the new launcher and login to Solace.
After a few updates, I clicked the login button very very enthusiastically...

alas, waiting for the last half hour at a screen saying nothing back to me. (except a 'please wait' message at the bottom of the launcher)
Network meter shows a download happening in the background.
I dont know what I'm downloading and how big it is. No indications anywhere.
(yes, my Tranquility client was current)

I'd like to terminate this if I'm downloading gigabytes of a new client.
Dev blog has nothing on this issue like the need for a download of a client but it uses the same build of Tranquility.
Maybe I can copy my current Tranquility for a Solace client ?
I'm confused.
Any clues ?
