It's here! Our new server hardware for Tranquility is here in our Reykjavik office, being anointed with sacred oils and being serenaded with the ancient hymns of configuration. If you want to see more of our new baby, check out this dev blog by CCP Gun Show


Please note that Solace is not enabled by default in the BETA launcher. Following are steps that can be taken to enable or disable any test server in your launcher.

Launcher Requirements:
Latest release version
GUI 1.729 or later (if you have 1.727 or older, restart your launcher)

1. Open the settings in the leftmost menu.
2. Visit the Test Servers tab
3. Tick Solace (and/or any other servers you want to enable)
4. Save

The desired servers should now be preparing for use in your launcher.

Alongside with the max SP, can we get access to the awesome Dev ships?

Pretty please!

When it comes to shooting each other, normal test server rules apply?

As an IRL sysadmin, I gotta say this is the part of the job that's really fun. Enjoy, CCP. Cool

I know what you meant, but it would be awesome if you gave us Polaris skills and Dev ships.

I'll bet that you'll have everyone logged in for that!

I think the big problem with that is most of our dev ships are just plain invulnerable... So it'd be pretty boring :) No one would be killing anyone.

But this was a request from QA to limit that stuff, so I couldn't say for sure the exact reason

Maybe they don't want to crash the server? Lol I remember watching a video showing an all skills 5 supercapitals seeded mirror from 2011/2012 on sisi that did not go well, maybe they want to try and prevent that. Personally I'd love to see that happen again though and see how it would hold with TiDi and the new equipment Twisted

Just the Polaris Frigate is invulnerable, everything else has stupid HP as a few cockroaches were suicide ganked.

I was thinking this as you want numbers and people to provide said numbers. Having a one time thing where we get to play with these special ships would have ALOT of players logging on...!

I think that is what the all lv5 skills part is for. The dev ships seem like they would be uninteresting to fly.

heh now I'm thinking it would be funny if they handed out dev ships for Christmas gifts, and no one would even be able to fly them. talk about hangar ornaments Big smile

They've done that a few times in the past already on SISI with not a hell of alot of players showing up.

Seeing how alot of people would like to play with toys restricted to Devs on TQ, you'd see ALOT of people showing up to fly them!

People have been begging for this for years!

All the more reason to unlock them - stop hiding behind broken af ships and mechanics and expand the balance pass to there!

Most of the pleasure of mining comes from watching the ore pile up and knowing that some other player will give you ISK for something they are unwilling to do for themselves.

Well, that's very nice, but if normal test server rules do apply, then shooting first can result in a ban.
