This Thursday at 8:00 eastern will be our first coordinated mission night featuring the new content from O.N.E., and while we have been cooking everything up I have also been hard at work preparing new missions to take advantage of the maps and content. I may also be on the server early doing testing.
There are already I think about ten brand new missions on the server leveraging the new O.N.E. content, including the alpha releases of the Dynamic Mission Machine and Invasion.
We will be playing through as many of these missions as we can, as hard and fast as we can, to detect any bugs that may have slipped through (in my missions -- I believe O.N.E. to be spotless at this point, with any luck). At the end we will shift into DMM and Invasion and test those.
I will also explain the new systems that pilots need to be familiarized with, particularly the GPS bombing system and the fastrope system. Don't worry, they're simple and intuitive.
Everyone is encouraged to stop in and make certain they have correctly configured their O.N.E. install and can join in-progress O.N.E. missions! Next Monday will NOT feature any installation hand-holding during gameplay time, so if you're not sure about it, come on Thursday and we'll get you sorted out!
See you there!
