Mass test on Singularity: Thursday, June 21st, 2018

(CCP Antiquarian) #1

Hello Capsuleers!

We are planning a mass test on Singularity on Thursday, June 21st, at 17:00 UTC (= EVE time)!

What exactly is being tested?

  • Client and server performance
  • Graphical changes to missile level of detail distances, impact explosion loading, and scene cleanup

How to connect to Singularity for this test:

  • Change the server from Tranquility to Singularity in the upper left corner of the launcher and log in as normal. More detailed instructions are available here.

Test steps:

  1. Since we are mostly concerned with missiles, you will want to fit yourself an appropriate missile platform, ans especially frigate/destroyer class rocket ships.
  2. We will start in FD-MLJ, at the station - [FD-MLJ VII - Moon 2 - Intaki Bank Depository].
  3. Fit yourself some hulls with launchers and load up the appropriate ammunition. The more missiles/rockets/torpedos you have ready the better.
  4. Undock and warp to the gate to X-BV98
  5. Jump to X-BV98.
  6. Warp to a Tatara and shoot it (only for a minute)
  7. Warp to Poitot gate
  8. Fleet W: Jump to Poitot + setup gate camp.
  9. Fleet X: Jump to Poitot + fight at the gate

What else should I know?

  1. Use the command /moveme to be moved to the start system FD-MLJ
  2. 2M Skill points will be awarded on Singularity for this mass test

I will come. I wish good luck to everyone… +;)

Any more details on the exact missile changes?

The devblog will show up after the result of the Mass Test (I’m 60% confident we won’t have to tweak the content too much), but these changes are from the Audio and Graphics group, and do not affect the functionality of missiles in game. The focus is expressly improving client performance by modifying the way the graphics engine handles and displays missiles (level of detail, impact effect loading, functions for where the explosion appears, and object clean up in the space scene).

(Arthur Aihaken) #7

Rats. I was really hoping for a missile buff… Still, I’m looking forward to the changes.

yeah, me as well. :sadparrot:

Good luck on the masstest today all! Look forward to seeing y’all there.

Can we bring Logi?

(HoLeFuc WiHungLo) #11

do the 2m skill points only go on singularity or will you get skill points in tranquility?

(QuakeGod) #12

You only get the skill points on the test server.

2M skill points have been added to 245 characters on Singularity. Thank you for helping!
