My bad, you lost me here... But then I'm old and slow. I'm aware of the frogs and understand that for a while we are testing the new system.

My hopes of better resource spawns are/were intended for once the O.R. stabilizes and the initial "wipes" are over. After playing on Nova for close to a year, I noticed that the quallty of resource were far lower than what was available on live. I, for one have never really enjoyed PvP, and always found the hunt for the servers best resources to craft the best part of SWG. After all SWG still has the best crafting system in any MMO.

its most likely a bug. i use to get the same message that i could create 1 toon on the TC but i kept trying and it went through to the character creation screen

09-06-2010 03:29 AM

I get this message on login and stops me loggin in untill i delete the 3rd toon :D

InTensify 09-06-2010 03:29 AM

cant edit..

btw, i didnt create any other toons until last week when i decided that i was gonna run more toons when OR comes.

Intensify- Rifleman/Combat Medic
Sigint- Artisan/Scout

fairly recently they only allowed you to CREATE 2 toons per day. you can have as many as you want on nova but only 2 online at the same time and can only create 2 per day. i had a total of 7 on nova. mostly ground up since june.

Mattwo 09-06-2010 06:38 AM

Aww snap I just noticed DE wasn't there. Guess for the same reasons as CH?

Here is the answer and if anybody is having account problems please go to support, not this thread, so it can be fixed.

When the "wipes" are over we'll be very close to version 1.0 release which mean the resources spawn will be like in pre-CU, somtimes good and sometimes bad. I wouldn't be too worried about that, unless you want sweet resources all the time ;)

it would be nice, but it would be more "realistic" to have them good or bad when spawning

TAfirehawk 09-06-2010 09:11 AM

Diktator is right, expect wipes throughout the TC: Nova until v1.00 is on SunCrusher. Of course we won't wipe it just because we are evil, but because it serves the developers' work.

I noticed that too, bit of a bummer but I can just test the crafting profs (WS/AS/Chef/Tailor) I didn't try until it comes along.

Sonno 09-06-2010 12:00 PM

Call me selfish :D

After the OR goes permanently live, how often will it be wiped?

Better question... Can you guesstimate how long after the OR goes live that it'll be up like Nova is now, if at all?

09-06-2010 12:06 PM

The days the OR was put to test, a couple weeks ago, artisan was available for testing, in fact is what I did (along with plant some factories and harvesters). You can be sure you will be able to test all crafting professions. I've got the feeling OR is quite polished about these professions, though I only tested artisan since I couldn't get to higher levels because of the short time OR was tested and the daily wipes. As soon as OR will be 24/7 online we will have the chance to test thoroughly crafters and any other profession.

If you have read anything in these threads you would know the answers to your questions.

1. It will be wiped as often as deemed necessary to facilitate the Dev's work

2. Trying to get a guesstimate is pointless as you will never get one. Unless I am wrong, OR is not meant to be like Nova. It is the code that needs tested extensively that will get us to ver 1.0 and Suncrusher.

If all you are looking for is to "play", then you best look elsewhere until SC goes live. Nova was here to placate us while the OR code was being worked on in the background, but now that era is soon to be over and the server will be back to a true testing phase.

Won't call you selfish, but if you are not interested in testing and all you want to do is "play", well not much esle to tell ya.

Rowgen 09-06-2010 02:13 PM

I am actually looking forward to the progression of player buildings. I understand that the wipes are necessary and for me, to make certain that everything is going to, in the end bring back a game which was the best sandbox out there during it's heyday. I started the Test Center later, and despite a few of the glitches with regards to spawn rates, scaling of the size of spawns, lack of a working garage, it was all very very close to how the game was pre-cu. Kudos to the developing team and their continuing hard work!

Fivo 09-06-2010 04:20 PM

I got to wear a working backpack today! Woot!

Belashe 09-06-2010 07:26 PM

looking forward to the OR myself and a step closer to the final product.keep it up doods

Master Chief 09-06-2010 09:02 PM

Full testing?! I'm there...as soon as the time comes, of course!

snowwolfjacob 09-06-2010 09:06 PM

Once the OR is up for longer periods of time, I'm in! I was able to be on for a few minutes earlier today. Hope we get longer testing time in the near future.

Guryon 09-06-2010 09:09 PM

Wow you guys are just awesome. Love you, love your work. I don't pop my head in here all that often any more, but my monthly contribution is still trickling in and I am so looking forward to the future of this project.

*Happy sigh*

Taivan 09-06-2010 10:00 PM

I was on earlier today and went fishing. Talk about awsome. Cant wait for the OR to hit nova for good.

Ama-Ebi 09-06-2010 11:31 PM

I've been away from game a couple weeks and look forward to testing the new stuff..backpacks..YAY!

I know how hard it is for me to get time away from family and RL duties to enjoy time in-game. I truly appreciate the time devoted by the EMU staff. Thank you :)

not once did he use the word "play" in his response.
some of you people need to stop trying to take every opportunity you think you see to be condescending d-bags, in some feeble effort to brownnose the emu staff and or make yourself feel superior to someone merely asking a question.

Zarniwoop 09-07-2010 11:41 AM

Really great to see this update.

Thanks for all the hard work!

Apex_ 09-07-2010 02:58 PM

Lay off each other, folks. There's a lot of misunderstanding going on here, so let's try to keep from making jabs at each other.

Participating in focus testing is appreciated, but in most cases just trying to fiddle with skills, crafting and combat will help as well. It's perfectly fine to "play" in the OR so long as you remember that wipes will happen often and there won't be any "gameplay considerations"; that means blue frogs will be present as long as they need be, even if getting things for free isn't "fun". It also means that fixing bugs will be prioritized, and what you consider a major game-breaking bug in a combat skill may not be as important as another issue on the list.

So if you haven't already done so, re-register on Mantis and get ready to submit those bug reports!

InTensify 09-07-2010 05:25 PM

where are the blue frogs gonna be located?

silkspinner 09-07-2010 05:39 PM

They're bright blue, obvious to see.

Fingies 09-07-2010 11:32 PM

Play cities, wha?
 
Whoa whoa whoa, player cities exsist in EMU?

Haven't played for a while, and was a little confused, sorry.

squinthemp 09-08-2010 12:11 AM

In "OR" yes nova not currently

InTensify 09-08-2010 03:24 AM

^^^ what he/ she said. player cities as said in the beginning post are gonna come post-wipe.

theyll be a popular thing. IMO theyll be useless for a bit but they need testing so im all up for it even if its not my own

zeustacos 09-08-2010 05:23 AM

You could have just edited the second one, but I'm not one to point fingers. As a side note on topic, in Coronet I couldn't kill anything, it always said invalid target and on tatooine every creature NPC (or mob?) around mos Eisley..must've been in the ground.
These are the bugs I found. In rest, I learned how to place cities and I went around both Correlia and Tatooine and did stuff, it was awesome.

When exactly did you test those things?
