Apologies for the late notice on this but we have just found a disparate but severe graphical issue that will invalidate all of the testing that we had planned for today. We will be rescheduling this test, tentatively, for next Tuesday (21/07)

That would have been my first guess, but I wanted to be sure. Will the new effects be less graphics intensive for us with older machines?

From the numbers I've seen there are only a couple of effects from our revamped set that have an increase in milliseconds/frame and those are quite minute, so you shouldn't be able to discern any performance degradation from these effects.

I know that aspects of Doomsdays have always been a performance hit (see Gjallarhorn/Oblivion impacts) but we're making every effort to improve on those.

Will you release gifs of the new stretch effect or something of the sort?

I was actually thinking of making a comparison chart showing old and new as I was walking in to work this morning!

Just to confirm,

does this include graphical improvements, akin to the ship Explosions showcased during fanfest?

And whilst on the topic, when are the new explosions/propmod effects coming?

How long will the test be running?

When was the last sync between Singularity and Tranquility? My account is only a few months old,; as of a few days ago, it doesn't seem to exist on Singularity yet.

Given the current server issues, is this test going to be delayed?

Hi folks, to give you an update on things:

Yesterday's disastrophe will have no impact on today's mass test.

The test will run for roughly 40-60mins (historically closer to 40).

I wouldn't say that the new effects are as drastically different as the new explosions we showed at fanfest (and I cannot provide a timescale for when you'll see those particular effects).

Hope to see you there!

Is this severe graphical bug what's caused this bit of weirdness: When I log in to Sisi, the middle bits of the screen that should have, you know, space has the background image from character selection stuck there instead.

This is with a fresh sisi install after copying my TQ setuo, which works as normal.

That's the one. Fix should be in soon.
