Hi!

We will be holding a mass test on Buckingham on Thursday, September 27th, at 20:00 UTC (= EVE time).

What exactly is being tested?
  • Stressing the new district satellite system for DUST
  • Testing the district UI and planet graphics
  • Testing graphics for fake DUST battles and fake orbital strikes
  • Investigating grid not loading bug

How to connect to Buckingham for this test:

Test steps:
Probably similar to:
  • Meet in D2-HOS
  • Make several coordinated jumps to Odamia
  • Warp to many different district satellites
  • Warp all to one district satellite
  • Check planet effects, orbital strike effect
  • Jump / be moved back to 0.0
  • Short PvP fight


What else should I know?
  • We will be moving players to the test system (still undecided) - join the channel massmoveme for this
  • Skill points will be awarded for this mass test (on both Buckingham and Singularity)
  • Ship types: Only use ships, which can use gates, as we will be moving pretty fast. NO CAPITALS!
  • Please run logserver during the mass test, if possible. Please send us the logs per bug report, if you encounter the grid not loading bug during the mass test.

Sorry, it is clear that this test is pretty early and it is at a pretty bad time for Americans. The reason for this timing is the need to have a LOT of devs online at the same time (mostly as DUST mercenaries).

The problem here is, that it is not possible to connect to this test server as regular DUST player.

Nah, it's OK, we do not mind, The Mass tests are ALWAYS run when EST people are at work. (OK, there was 1 time... what... 2 years ago now?...)

But in general, we're used to it.

You know how to make the Tests close Habakuk... :P


I wonder if footage of both orbital bombardment and DUST gameplay (and preferably showing some Dusties melting) will be shown at somepoint so we can see it in true action ^_^

Unfortunately we have to delay this mass test as some features are not ready for public testing and would only cause unnecessary confusion, problems during the test and lots of worthless bugreports. We are very sorry for first advertising a mass test and then delaying it, but in some cases it has to be done. Ugh

I will keep you updated about the new date for this mass test, as soon as we have an internal decision.

Wait - so are we still doing it Thursday or did it get delayed again?

I swear to cthulhu this is getting annoying twice this week I have arranged for a day off work so I can be there for the mass test and you guys go cancel it the day before. I should be asking for some kind of compensation -_-

This is the first delay, and yes it is postponed until further notice.

Sorry for the short notice, but I'm afraid it was unavoidable. We appreciate your efforts in attempting to make the tests.
