    New Test Center: TC-Prime


    Since we have completed our move the Dev and QA teams have asked for a new server that will allow us to test numerous things not possible on Nova.

    The inspiration for this server name comes from TestCenter/TCPrime getting started and FAQ.

    The goal of this server is to allow people to test the latest code before we push it live on Basilisk.

    The reality is people do not test at scale on TC-Nova and we need people to pile on and test new features before we roll them out to Basilisk.

    I'm working on a process that will automatically make a snapshot of Basilisk server (All accounts, items, characters etc.) and re-deploy it as TC-Prime.

    This means you will see your toons twice on the character selection page, you can still login to Basilisk and ignore the other toons.

    If however you actually care about the game getting closer to v1.0 then you can login to TC-Prime with your characters that are 100% the same as your Basilisk characters.

    You will have to re-setup macros and keys but those should hold between wipes because they're client side settings.

    TC-Prime is the place to test your characters, items, buildings etc. with the project's most recent merged code.

    When you first zone into TC-Prime you will get a pop-up on each of your characters, this message will be something along the lines of:

    IMPORTANT SYSTEM MESSAGE:

    THIS SERVER IS A COPY OF Basilisk AS OF 12/17/2017

    THE GOAL OF THIS SERVER IS TO PROVIDE A PLACE TO TEST
    NEW PRE-PUBLISH FEATURES WITH EXISTING CHARACTERS.

    THIS SERVER MAY BE UP OR DOWN AT A MOMENTS NOTICE.

    THIS SERVER WILL BE WIPED EVERY WEEK WITH A NEW COPY OF Basilisk.

    PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
    Once you hit OK on the pop-up it will go away until we setup a new message or we re-copy the server from Basilisk.

    TO BE CLEAR THIS IS A TEST SERVER, ANYTHING YOU DO THERE WILL BE LOST EACH TIME WE WIPE THE SERVER WITH A NEW COPY OF Basilisk

    My goal is to have this process 100% automated and running on a weekly basis, that said we may run the copy earlier to test new things and/or allow the server to stay for longer periods for testing purposes. You'll always get a notice when we make these changes when you zone-in to the server.

    Happy testing and enjoy TC-Prime.
