New Avlis needs You!

Post by Plethora » Wed Mar 05, 2014 7:32 am

Okie dokie Peeps !!!

Thanks to Krackq and PJ, our new servers are ready for stress testing, as in, we need to go in beat the hell out of them !! The teams been testing everything for a few weeks now, but we really need to put some strain on these babies.

You can rp if you like, but for now its OCC there, we need everything you can think of tested.. and as many of you on as we can in large numbers so dms can try to kill you help you test if its gonna hold us all in full swig. If there are no dms about, grab them from IRC, announce times you want to grab people in the calender, and all try to hook up, and do.. stuff :D

Nothing you do affects Main Avlis in an RP sense, or your PCs state, so if you ever wanted to go kill everyone in Le'or.. nows your chance! Wreak the servers! Chaos! Good news!
DMs can easily reset them :wink:

Alright, the new hosting has the latest copies of the mods and has a copy of the Vault, Game database and Alpha DB as of 3/4/2014. If someone was off-world with their character at that time, they won't be able to log in with that character.

People can log in and try whatever they wish except portaling off-world.

Going to be up for testing for at least a week. Feel free to post here if you find something dodgy, or whatever. Make threads if you like also.

For this time, I am going to open my private team TS3 channel to the playerbase, so those brave enough to talk to each can communicate faster, hopefully DMs will also be in there.
Teamspeak3 is free to dl. <[8)

Channel is

au1.pure-voice.net:8023

No password

Thanks to QA and dm staff for your testing so far.. please feel free to boss around the players while test stressing.

QA staff should be consulted in this test as they know what has been done or not, and are badass :)
Use DMs for slamming massive amounts of things, and help with testing ;)

p.s TA says "Hi!"

Connection stuff

The hosting ip address is 198.101.12.59 All of the same server ports apply.

198.101.12.59

port 5121 - Mikona
port 5122 - Wilderness
port 5123 - Elysia
port 5124 - LeOr
port 5125 - Deglos
port 5126 - Ferrell
port 5129 - Visimontium
port 5130 - Underdark
port 5131 - Mchek

Let's make some noise ;)

We all have a story.. it's just waiting to be claimed..

So how about we have a big, multi-DM, as-many-PCs-as-possible, TS3-enhanced, mega-Battle?

Strictly OOC, so bring whatever you have, regardless of IC affiliations and we spawn as many NPC monsters as possible and TPK you all - and maybe TPK the server as well.

Anyone interested?

Players
DMs
NPC Monsters


Dates? Maybe the weekend, so we can all be there.

How about Friday evening, starting at 19:00 GMT, going on until everyone is dead? :glaskugel:

Hi!

There has been an amazing amount of work that's gone into this behind the scenes and I'm very excited that we get to show it off to the whole community now. Let's beat it up, bandage it, and then roll it out as the official Avlis server hosting.

Hi all,

Just a heads-up that at this time not all modules on the new server represent the latest versions. eg. you can disregard any oddities with the Mikona Marketplace and Robsin Pass.

Thank you!

Just as FYI as we weren't sure if relevant, but not everything merges with all shifter forms on the test servers. Seems to be the original merging 'rules'

Did some testing today putting down the rebellion I set up yesterday and the npc's were based on npc soldiers, defender faction I believe. When we would attack the npc's they would only go hostile per what seemed to be a line of sight policy. Unsure if bug or feature.

Ok, I'm done for the night. I did a few dungeons. I left a corpse on Elysia on purpose.

About 45 minutes from now on New Elysia :glaskugel:

Bring whatever you have - they will not be affected permanently.

We can boost them up if required.

Free Rezzing when they die :lol:

Since RCon is a humble fellow, I take this opportunity to point out that he kindly reset Deglos, Ferrell, and Wilderness. Those and Mikona are now up to speed. Passing the torch for volunteers to reset the Underdark, Visimontium, Le'Or, M'Chek and Elysia when possible.

Has anyone retried this to see if it functions correctly or at least functions like the live servers do?


Also there was a report of the ammo toggle system not functioning correctly, can this be tested again?

Thanks!

Shall we have another go at this tonight?

Let's meet at Elf Gate on the New server at 20:00 GMT, instead of the Live server.

Bring whatever you want to test :glaskugel:

All OOC, so no problems with whatever you bring :lol:
