Mass Test on Singularity: Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

2019-11-19 - By EVE Development Team

We are planning another mass test on Singularity on Tuesday, November 19th, at 17:00 UTC (= EVE time)!

What exactly is being tested? Shareable Bookmarks and the Travel System.

The Travel System update is a graphical update with gameplay implications. The test participants should pay attention to how the jump effects look and feel, and how readable the game information is (sec, empire) for the tunnels. The team is on the look out for any exceptions or tech issues that haven’t presented themselves in-house (bug reports from in-client most appreciated - just press F12!). We are also interested in gathering feedback in many areas, a short list is below and may be updated before the test:

  • Smoothness and timing of jump sequences
  • Awareness of difference of tunnel types (e.g. Location, Security Level, Travel Method)
  • Tunnel lighting and brightness
  • Lightning brightness and intensity
  • Queasiness or discomfort from using the tunnels
  • Technical concerns (performance, camera edge cases, driver issues, crashes, etc.)
  • The team would appreciate a variety of ship classes and sizes to be brought to the test, since the camera is repositioned by data inferred from the hull.

Shareable Bookmarks allows sharing of bookmark folders based on access lists and was already tested in the last mass test. This time we are running further server performance tests for the new system.

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.
  • More detailed instructions are available here.
