Cryday with Means - May 15th, 2009
Fun and games with the TestServer today. Being disconnected after logging in with no error-log on the server for a couple hours is the kind of thing that makes me lie on the floor to feel better. It is a damn good thing we have some 220/30/70 technical guys here to figure out what is wrong or it would be an interesting weekend. This is precisely why we try to never touch live servers on Fridays.
Compression Proxy...wtfit??? Fix smart guys! Fix!!!! 101001001!
Fixed. Move along..nothing to see here. Test Server should be up again in about XXish minutes.
Pulse back to normal. Coders no longer sweating.
Test Server should be up shortly and we can get the chance to have a go at new instanced Pandemonium (or the non-instanced version should you so desire.) or be the first to build your own Organization city on one of the new "Serenity Islands" custom built off the Coast Of Peace. The door to the "Sunrise Station", the new orbital apartments is not active yet but will be the second we can safely fit the playfield into the database...which I am hoping is some time next week...it comes with a new vehicle too. See screenies.
Reset your Map Navigation skill? Sure..no problem. Start thinking about what to put in your client side chat filter...mine will have the words "fix" and "nerf" in it. Check out your hostile nanos running on others. There is so much new stuff in this update I'm having a tough time remembering it all. I'm certain you guys will have a great time ripping through the new database.
Have a great weekend!
