Phase Testing Tasks for Week of 3/16

Task Rundown
  • Crafting - Armor and Clothing
  • Entertainer (Band Flourishes)
  • Focus Marksman Testing (all skills / abilities)
  • Focus Brawler Testing (all skills / abilities)
  • Bazaar & Auction Systems
  • Denver Configuration Test

Details and Notes

Crafting is a huge focus this week (see 1376, 1377, 1380). Many new schematics in the wearable category will be making way to the server over the next week. Please test them in depth to make sure: All the ingredients/amounts are good, functionality, that armor has the correct specials and vulnerabilities, sockets are generating like pre-cu, and also that the combat equations are holding with the new armor.

Entertainer should be feature complete. ANYTHING that is missing from the Entertainer profession set should be reported on the Bug Tracker. Issues with band flourishes, which were added recently, should be the focus this week (how they affect HAM, etc).

TAFirehawk has added almost all SWG weapons to the BF. Please test Marksman from a fresh char, with limited blue frog assistance (besides weapons). There was an internal staff test of marksman earlier, but there are probably a bunch of things we missed. Please report any issues asap!

Brawler should also be tested from ground up, with limited BF assistance. Report any issues to the bug tracker.

Bazaar / Auction:
A few issues with the bazaar & auction systems have been patched (the description no-load and owner retrieval). Please continue to test the Bazaar and Auction system, comment on existing bugs, and submit unreported ones.

Denver Configuration Test:
We are in the process of moving the TC to our new location in Denver, Colorado, USA (see latest BiWeekly for details). The website and TC may experience small outages as we switch and settle into our new configuration. When the TC comes online make sure you run Launchpad Enhanced, as it will patch your client configuration to the new TC address (denver.swgemu.com). Please bear with us and report any issues you come across on either the Website and TC.

Closing Notes

This week, we have set internal staff goals to complete ASAP. These changes should make testing a bit easier and will be applied as soon as the modifications are available.

  • Increase overall spawns outside major cities on Corellia & Naboo
  • Determine & Provide new characters with a reasonable starting item set - most need cert's to use anyway.
  • Loot - all creatures should drop something of value to starting players. We are testing the beginning game, but the rate at which we allow it to progress will make the testing exp. easier and have no effect on the quality of bug reports.
Overall Goal: Decrease scarcity of common goods, esp. those used for beginning-game testing.
BlueFrogs will be REMOVED in the near future - we are preparing the TC content to allow for a sustainable economic pool room to grow. Try playing without the BlueFrogs more and more, depending on them only for getting started on weapons. The feedback we received from Scout and Medic was great, any remaining issues for those professions will be fixed this week - please continue to test them.

Thanks to LakMoore, the HAM 1/1 bug has been fixed!

My bad if this has been previously discussed, but has the dmg on the attacks from animals been reduced? it would make for slightly easier grinding. (=

No they have not reduced the attack speed yet. Unless there was another update I don't know about, its still going to be attacking at 1 instead of 2

Not sure if this is the right place to post this reply, but can anyone tell me why I keep having to recreate my character each time since the database wipe?

Yesterday, for the second time in a row, I had to recreate my character again. As soon as I had gone through the character creation screens, I started on Theed and BF'd master marksman and master artisan, as well as getting weapons, comp armor and camp kits from him, then off I went.

I then spent the next six hours gathering the resources to make a speeder, replanted a harvester (which for some strange reason doesn't seem to accept power) plus a wind generator (which still doesn't work). I then took time out to attend the event at the Mos Eisley cantina (where fun was had by all, and a bunch of people patiently stood in line to get a swoop).

Imagine my dismay and frustration when I logged on just now, only to find myself staring at the character creation screen again. I realize this is only the beta test and I should expect to run into some bugs, but this is one is a bit much. Is the database getting wiped every day, or do we lose our characters when we log out?

I'll keep playing, of course, but if we are to test profession grinding, then I think this issue is something that needs to be looked into asap.

Now to log in and recreate my character all over again (sigh).

Not necessarily a bug, but the Nalargon and Ommni Box are missing.
