We are planning a mass test on Singularity on Tuesday, February 26th, at 17:00 UTC (= EVE time)!
What exactly is being tested?
Fixes to position desync (where the server and clients disagree on the position of your ship). The main fix was mostly for a case when colliding with a gate in abyssal space, but it will probably also fix cases when colliding with Upwell Structures or during fleet fights.
How to connect to Singularity for this test:
Change the server from Tranquility to Singularity in the bottom right corner of the launcher and log in as normal.
The mirror is currently from December. If your account exists, then you can create a new character directly on Singularity. If you have currently no account on Singularity then you will have to wait for the next mirror (probably at some point in March).
He brings up a good point in that a noob can join a fleet fight at no risk to himself what’s so ever to he’s/hers in game character. Something a new player might never be exposed to otherwise. (sry, assuming that he’s been playing longer than a week )
I don’t see why these are not promoted more for the new players? Just a short line at the end of the announcement stating its new player friendly and they are encouraged to join.
I have only been able to make a couple of them because of work. But they are a lot of fun to be involved in! I would only ask that no one pop pods on purpose, You never know whos filming and the new players would get to hang around and watch.
pods should never be popped outside of the one area where popping is legal. Also, if a player has been in since the last mirror as stated, they’ll get a chance to join in… but otherwise they won’t be able to get on SiSi until the next mirror.
@CCP_Habakuk i can count multiple times when jumping to acceleration gates, mostly in a noctis, it gets hung up on “nothing” and i have to manually move it to get it to warp through the gate… not sure if this is in with the same issue or not.
Sorry I didnt get to make it up to the start point as it was 54 jumps away. But I did try bumping into gates and when I hit the E7VE-V gate in Impass it wouldn’t let me jump and said it went offline. I flew to a station and then came back and then it worked. that was the only problem I encountered. The recent upwell gate in impass isnt present so I could’nt test that to bump, lol.
I just tried it today and I can now see the fitting window. I did try and send a bug report yesterday when I would not see the fittings, but it kept saying the fields were not filled out in the bug report , yet they all were. At least now I can see the fitting window
Thank you all for participating in this mass test! The results are very promising in regards to our fixes and we gathered very valuable data for tracking down another somehow related bug.
I applied 2 million skill points to 275 characters on Singularity as small reward. Enjoy!
