Hi,

Not sure if this is the right forum for this but i hope so. I feel its kind of weird that its so hard to find the patch date or patch month for new patches. Maybe you should have a sticky in this forum about the next patch date or patch month, whichever is known.

I know that Trinity is supposed to come out in Nov, but i cant confirm or find any other precise date for it. Maybe im doing it wrong or havent looked in the right place, if so, im appreciative for help.

Really? I thought there was a date out the somewhere? Isnt the DT announcements a little longer than a few days normaly? and with a pathc this size its strange that they dont try to have an open time- and deadline...

If they're sticking to the "late november" deadline, then it will be happening in 6 days. Most like mid-december though =(

I would hope the release is within the next 14 days.

The fact that they now have the advert site up for Trinity trying to get people to try out the new features that are about to hit the game. It would be pretty stupid to get people to sign up for the trial and then have their trial period end before they get a chance to try the new graphics that were used to lure them to the game.

Code freeze was about a month ago, Economy Blog mentions the 27th of November as patch date, which is a Tuesday...

I think the "end of Nov." inofficial deadline is already history. I would be ****ed off, if tehy annouced it only 2-3 days before the patch. Also if you look in this forum here, there is still a lot of work to do. Let them take their time.

Supposedly about 500 remodeled ships, stations and stargates will be, as will the new ships, some new interfaces and a drone revamp. Its all said on the Trinity page, the graphics overhaul will continue and add more objects, effects and nice thingys over time but the Trinity graphics will be released with this patch. They will be as its said earlier DL'd in the backround and you will prolly be able to use them a few hours after the server comes back online from patching.

But im only asking if they have a timeline and that it would be nice of them to sticky a somewhat date of the next major patch on either this or the general forum for us junkies to read and drool about. I know some issues are still on test (mainly balancing) but that does not stop the things that are done to be released, which most of them are done and working, atleast what ive seen.

This is a loose/loose situation for CCP really, if they don't give a release date you get these kind of threads, if they do and they don't manage to actually make that date all hell breaks loose on the forums
this way works best TBH ;)

And i'm still putting my money on the 27th YARRRR!!

As we come closer to the actual patching (or not, we cant be sure) there should atleast be an aim for what week, like last week of nov or first week of dec, then if they move it its not the whole world...

Well, there was a clarification... it'll be this winter, just not necessarily winter 2007. And unless I'm incorrect 'winter' by the calendar does not actually begin until sometime in december. Nov 27th would still, technically, be 'autumn' (in the northern hemisphere, anyway).

Winter starts earlier in Iceland Laughing

"this winter" for Iceland can mean so many things... one can only hope for november (winter starts in the 21st of December AFAIK, but most people consider it to start with the 1st of December). If I had to bet isk on it, it would be first or second Tuesday of December. Anything later than that can be considered a small fail (as far as marketing and time-to-market is considered). Not a big deal, if you ask me but I'd really like to know :p

Remember that Rev3 != new engine. We will first have the patch with the "content" (new ships, scripts, whatever) and later (though not much later I think) the new engine with new graphic content (for the people that can use it: Shader model 3.0 needed)

Rev 3 aka Trinity = New engine |= new models.

The old gaphics engine is getting upgraded to Trinity 2.0 to utilize your gpu instead of your cpu to render the graphics regardless of what client you use when it be mac classic, Linux Classic, Windows Classic, or Windows Trinity DX9SM3

Content for the new engine will be seperate and im sure they are very much planning on having this content on soon asap which is probably the day of the release of the expansion.

As far as balancing and tweaking goes they are almost done it wouldnt surpise me if they launched next week, right now its probably qa time to test patchability and any last minute issues that might rise up.

How on earth did you idea on what is happening get so twisted?

Rev3 != Trinity

Trinity is released this winter with the new content, graphics models etc.

Reverlations 3 SHOULD (tm) include factional warfare and whatever they want to do next. This will be released next year.

The things that are slated for a possibility next year are (the above) factional warfare, ambulation (what I think you are getting confused with) and a DX10 version of the new content.

The date was announced as the 27th of November some time ago. The date was again confirmed at fanfest.

will be interesting to see how script is seeded and where it's seeded or lots of people in 0.0 are going to be screwed waiting for someone to run 100000 of the various scripts to 0.0.

Trinity (the expansion) contains Trinity v2 (the graphics engine; v2 not II).
Tush proving that there this patch will include the new graphics engine, AND the upcoming changes.

They really should explain also what they're thinking with all the nerfs and changes before patch cos it will get messy when they hit tq with nothing said. Yes we will adapt but give us the reasoning behind the changes ffs!
