Beta first phase end & wiki opening
« on: March 14, 2014, 03:09:33 PM »

Hello Wastelanders!

It's been five weeks since the beta test started and thanks to the help of our testers, we were able to solve a lot of bugs and bring several improvements to the game. We could also run some stability tests to make sure everything runs fine. We're now close to the first playable version of the game, but some tasks still remain to be finished. That's why we'll close the server at the end of this week. It will be reopened in a couple of weeks for the second beta test phase when we'll be ready to launch it. We'll keep you informed of the progress as regularly as possible.

Meanwhile, we're working on a new version of the website, which will hopefully arrive soon now. This improvement should help us to communicate more easily and more regularly and bring a better atmosphere to the whole platform.

Finally, the wiki is now ready for contributions. It's still missing a lot of pages and we'll soon work on a more practical and cool display, but at least basic information is made available and that's the most important thing. We'll let you know soon about editing procedure. If you're interested in giving us a hand to fill it, don't hesitate to contact us in this post or via PM. We'll give you access to a testing server where you'll be able to gather information after server closure.

Stay tuned!

I would happily join the server if it will be on while the open beta is off, I usually play a lot and screw around with things so I could find out a lot of info

Server is now closed. We'll keep you informed about the beginning of the second phase and the next updates.

To those motivated to give a hand about the wiki, we'll send you details via PM within a few days.

Big thanks to everyone that tested the game so far!
Stay tuned, we'll be back!

Just to make sure I understood correctly,
I will play it either way, but is the next beta server going to be only available to those planning on contributing to the wiki?

It will be reopened in a couple of weeks for the second beta test phase when we'll be ready to launch it.

If you're interested in giving us a hand to fill it, don't hesitate to contact us in this post or via PM. We'll give you access to a testing server where you'll be able to gather information after server closure.
I may be reading it wrong, but these two statements seem to me to be contradictory to each other

You'll receive an access to the game server during this downtime period to get the necessary information. You should get it by the end of this weekend, btw.

Alright, that clears it up, thanks
EDIT: Spring break is upon us, what better time to stay up three and a half days to rise from tribal to apamk3 soldier w/gauss minigun?

Testing server is running and you should get the information and the new client soon now. I'll send you a PM as soon as it's ready. Perhaps later today, perhaps tomorrow.

Just made my day, thanks. Looking forward to it. Have there been updates, or is the purpose of this to check server stability/capability?

The goal is simply to let you access ingame data to help us filling the wiki, nothing else for now. There were some updates made but we'll detail them when server will be open again.

Alright, thanks. Gonna keep it in windowed mode. Is the wiki already filled with empty templates, or will everything be made from scratch?

Alright, so three small things:
Wiki won't let me log in with my forum info, but clicking on create an account sends me back to the forum homepage. Any ideas?
Do we still use the bug reporting section with the dev server?
Is there any place to gain materials without scavenging?

I completely forgot to change your access. Now, as Wiki Editor, you should be able to log on the wiki with your forum ID/pass and edit pages.

If you find bugs, you can report them, but there is a big chance that those bugs are already known and simply related to the WIP revision available on the dev server.

As for materials, I'll just add some piles in HQ's I guess.
