Hi!

We will be holding a mass test on Singularity on Monday, May 27th, at 17:00 UTC (= EVE time).

What exactly is being tested?
  • New features for Odyssey
  • New jump and pod death transitions
  • Hacking mini-game (only short check)

How to connect to Singularity for this test:

Test steps:
Probably similar to:

  • Before the proper mass test starts: Hacking mini-game tests from 16:00 - 17:00
  • at 17:00: Meet in FD-MLJ at the gate to X-BV98
  • Settings change: Set texture quality to low
  • Settings change: Set texture quality to high
  • Jump to X-BV98
  • Warp to a beacon with hacking containers
  • Warp to a POS and kill the tower
  • Fleet W: Jump to Poitot and prepare gate camp
  • Fleet X: Jump into the gate-camp and fight


What else should I know?
  • We will be moving players to the test system - join the channel massmoveme for this
  • Please bring a good mix of ships, cynos will be provided (but we also want many in smaller ships)
  • Skill points will be awarded on Singularity for this mass test
  • The server population will be capped at 650 to avoid too heavy time dilation, make sure to log in early enough.

woohoo masstest \o/ I'll do my best to be there.

Few questions though,

Will a mirror be applied before than?(Or are the issues still ongoing?)
Will there be a server cap again?

Could you please consider instituting proper penalties (preferably permabanning) for people who insist on smartbombing or shooting testers during the masstests?

The unnecessary ship destruction, podding and reshipping during non-combat tests due to these idiots puts me off ever attempting another.

This, its simply uncalled for. If they want to grief, do it on TQ....otherwise, you can put your shenanigans aside for a single hour to let ppl test the crap CCP is giving us. We don't get many chances to test it before we tell them its crap, so please let us have that chance.

Currently, is there even an actual penalty for SB'ing or shooting everyone while we are waiting for Hab to get his titan into the right system? If not there should be, and i agree with the above opinion. If the only reason they are "participating" in the test is to smartbomb and shoot ppl while there is no 'testing combat' taking place, then they should lose their privilege of using the test server.

Will you be taking feed back on this, or is it just to make sure it does not explode the game once it hits TQ?

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

Did you guys stop putting it into the in-game calendar on TQ?

Mirror: probably not, Ops is working on fixing the issues, but it will probably not be in time for the mass test.
Server cap: Yes, there will be a cap (at 650), but I don't expect that we hit it this time, as the mass test is a bit earlier.

We are trying to apply proper penalties (banning included) for ppl breaking rules (mostly for bubbles and smartbombs), but we are often too busy with other stuff to figure out who exactly is breaking rules - but we are trying out best.
Smartbombing during the final PvP part at the end of the mass test is allowed (we also want to make sure, that smartbombs are not causing any issues).

I personally am mostly interested in the performance impact, but there will be members of Team Prototype Rocks around, who are for sure interested in other feedback (as long as it is constructive).

I hope it will be added very soon (but I don't have access to it myself).

  • Will this be a test /check on functionality, and if so, will it be geared to solo players or are you still wanting explorers to take mules with them when doing a hacking site?

    I asked in another thread, but I didn't get a solid answer. I am loving the shiny new Super Capitals and Titans you deposited in my hangar but if I undock it before the mass test will I be able to put it back in the station?

    Things that keep me up at night;  Why do we use a voice communication device to send telegraphs? Moore's Law should state, Once you have paid off the last PC upgrade you will need another.

    It is likely we will update tomorrow, but can't be sure. Depends if people are working today or not and need their stuff in for the test.

    Since there will not be a mirror, will accounts be reactivated?

    Will the launcher be functional by tomorrow to DL this latest patch? B/c as of now my launcher has decided it wants to see that there is a patch to DL, but makes no attempt to actually DL it.

    so in other words, you're not planning on actually fixing this launcher anytime soon if you are broadcasting the player found work-arounds...awesome. (already read that thread)

    Easier fix is to delete the launcher folder in your sisi install, copy it from your tranquility install, then re-run. It'll download what it needs.

    My guess is a bad build got pushed out that they basically can't fix from their end. There's no point spending a ton of time making an official solution since it only affects singularity. Think about it: you're asking for a launcher update, when the bug is that your launcher can't download the launcher update anyway.
