Hi!
We are planning a mass test on Singularity on Tuesday, July 12th, at 17:00 UTC (= EVE time)!

What exactly is being tested?

  • Visual damage system
  • Missile code improvements
  • Client and server performance


How to connect to Singularity for this test:
Change the server from Tranquility to Singularity in the upper left corner of the new launcher and log in as normal. More detailed instructions are available here.

Test steps:
1. Meet in FD-MLJ, at the gate to X-BV98
2. Jump to X-BV98
3. Warp to Citadel
4. Shoot the citadel
5. Fleet W: Jump to Poitot + setup gate camp.
6. Fleet X: Jump to Poitot + fight at the gate

What else should I know?

  • Use the command /moveme to be moved to the start system FD-MLJ
  • 2M Skill points will be awarded on Singularity for this mass test
  • Bring any of following: repair drones, sensor dampeners, tracking disruptors, triage, black ops cyno

If you are testing visuals, are there any recommended graphic settings you would like us to use?

Can we get some details on the missile code improvements?
Are they intended to stop the partial tick issue where missiles loose significant range in some cases (Like the Mordus ship line), or are they intended purely for server performance issues only?

Any chance I can get a bump in some production items my corp is working on? It would be fun to test with.

What was the visual damage system?

My client locked up about 80% of the way through the citadel shooting phase. I force quit the the client and did not re-log.

Thank you for helping in this mass test! Skill points have been added to 730 characters on SIngularity.

There are not so many features planned for the August release, so we just have individual threads, as soon as those features are ready.


Vincent Athena: Do you have any details on this lock up?

What are you looking for?
First, this was with an alt, so don't look for me in the list of participants.
I was orbiting the citadel, shooting it with rails and drones. I moved the camera to see if I could see any missile effects, panning and zooming in, and the screen stopped updating. The esc key did nothing, nor any other. Voice was still working, I could hear the fleet chatter. I waited about 3 minutes to see if it would come back, but it did not.

I was monitoring my fps before the lock-up. It was very choppy. It would sit at 10 for twenty seconds or so, then drop to 1, then over ten seconds, slowly recover to 10 fps. When the freeze hit, at first I thought it was just another fps dip, but a deeper one. But the client never came back.

The computer itself was not locked up. I could go look at the launcher, which still thought I was logged in (square icon beside the account). Force quit on the client worked fine.

Unless to make some tiny tests, why Skill points on Singularity?, It's possible transfer those to live?

Thank you.

You cannot transfer. The SP in Sisi is to allow you to test new things before you can use them on TQ.

CCP has a rule: Nothing that happens on the test server effects what happens on TQ. I've often wondered if that rule is really needed. For example:
You get a mission from an agent : Test new systems. The mission requires you to participate in a mass test. After doing so, you get a certificate that you can turn in to the agent. The agent then gives you a reward, ISK and LP, comparable to doing an hour's worth of courier missions in high sec. (Courier missions and mass testing both have zero or near zero risk.) The effect on TQ is now the same as if you had not done the mass test, but instead just done the courier missions.

Actually you will need graphics set to high, you don't see the effects otherwise. (just tested this again to make sure)

My opinions are mine.

  If you don't like them or disagree with me that's OK.- - - - - - Just don't bother Hating - I don't care

It really is getting harder and harder to justify $23 a month for each sub.
