NPC Stress Test - Sunday 4/15/07

Here we go..

Ult and I have been starting to work more and more on core3, a shift from our previous job as dedicated analyst of protocol. Oru and TA have made leaps and bounds with core3 since our last stress test, and it is about time for another stress test.

What is new since the last test:
-Event based. The entire community will be engaged in a single objective to complete as a whole.
-NPCs. A ****load.
-Some of the Top 10.
-Possible Npc vs Npc combat (depending on what story path we go with for the event).
-Core3 used to run ontop of cygwin on windows because some portions haven't been ported to native windows. That created a 5-10% overhead. We now run core3 on freebsd and right now it uses like .15% of cpu.

Event Mini FAQ:
Q) What time sunday?
A) This has yet to be finalized. The time will try to best fit for players in North America.

Q) Could you give a basic overview of the event story?
A) Sure,
Tusken's are advancing upon Anchorhead, and it is up to the community to defend anchorhead until reinforcements arrive to push them out. The "reinforcements" will probably be a battle group of storm troopers and a couple Imperial machines that will fight along side players.

Q) Was this shot in core3?
A) Yes, on a private core3 server. No footage was shot on dummy servers or core1 (lol), its all core3.

Q) How did you get your camera to fly over all that?
A) Its an Ultyma-trick.

Q) Will NPC's be in the MO before the event?
A) No.

Q) Will Npc's be in after the event?
A) Random spawns, probably.
