    ...for an update! Yay!

    We don't expect downtime to be longer than an hour. Please keep an eye out on the blog for version notes.

    Edited to correct the date.

    11:18 Update: We're having a major issue with our internal test server. We need to fix that bug and make that build stable before we're comfortable to bring it out for you guys to test.

    I'll keep you guys update!

    4:44 Update: Because EA-Land is taking longer than expected, we're going to hold off on updating TC3 until tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. PDT.

    Blazing Falls and possibly Betaville. Maybe he thinks there'll be "lost cities" added to the map?

    I think since tomorrow is our normal update day (Wednesday) this was just an advance posting of the fact that the city would be going down. Does seem a little premature though since the city isn't going down till mid-morning PST and not early in the morning, but maybe Parizad needs sleep, which would account for the fact that the date is wrong on the post *and* for the fact that it's posted so early if she plans on sleeping past 11am her time [​IMG]

  18. Argh, I can never find the post regarding this issue, so can someone tell me what to put in the "target" bar for the shortcut to the EA Client to play in both windows mode and to see all 6 sims in TC3? I'd appreciate it.

    For TC3 you need to add this: "-CSCity:Test Center 3" to your target line, in the client shortcut properties.

    Argh I double checked after reading this and I did in fact have to change it to Test Center 3. Somebody else had posted "TC3" and that's how it stuck in my mind but looking back on it I do remember having to elongate it to Test Center 3. Too little sleep, not enough coffee and a long evening ahead yet and still. Mea culpa! [​IMG] LOL

    No worries! I appreciated the help anyhow. I should've had the common sense to try the full name, but I too am in need of a few more hours of sleep and a nice pot of coffee. We can take turns napping and brewing up caffeine. Deal? [​IMG]

    Guest Guest

    Okay, so...

    As stated previously, we won't take TC3 down while EA-Land is offline. Because I've posted in the other thread that EA-Land will be back up before noon, at this point, honestly, we don't know what time TC3 will go down, or even if it will go down this week.

    Mods, will you please lock this thread? I'll make a brand spankin' new one tomorrow if we decide to take TC3 down. That way everyone won't be confused with all the updates.

    Thanks guys!

    ...and with this, I'm outta here! Ooh look, 8 mins before midnight. It is still technically Wednesday! Goodnight!
