Edit: We played Blue Planet Multiplayer last weekend!
Test Concluded

Be on IRC around that span of time and we'll set up games from there

These used to be called public tests, but we've got enough established work to the point where it's turning out to be more of a game night. The 5th public announcement of WIH multi will focus on giving the more complete work a through playthrough, welcoming critiques on overall experience. These game days typicly end up being good fun for Freespace Multi and Blue Planet enthusiasts alike.

We are planning on playing the following missions:
Fleet Battle A/B
Blade Itself
Forced Entry
Escalation
Delenda Est
Plunder
Mars Red
Tev Capship Gauntlet
Rat Defense
UEF Gauntlet
The Plunder
TvT/DF missions

If you have any questions about getting setup, or are unsure about what an SVN is or anything technical. Join the multiplayer IRC channel. There is almost always someone there who can walk you through getting yourself ready to play.

I'm in.  What timezone is BST?
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!

BST is GMT +1. It's basically GMT which accounts for daylight savings time, so we add an hour in the spring/summer.

Use this map to determine your timezone

Saturday is unfortunately no good for me. I'm going to be out all day, but I'm free on Sunday. I'll also try to fix Preemptive Measures one final time in time for the test. Hopefully, for good.

Re: Let's Play Blue Planet multi this weekend!
An impromptu test session today brought out so many people we had to split into two games. Good times.

If the time is way too late for anyone in the far east, try logging onto IRC a few hours earlier and asking around. It wouldn't hurt, and who knows, maybe you can find a game.

EDIT: We are considering making a far east test at 1:00 BST for NEXT weekend June 11th. We'll keep you posted.

You can check the current BST here (http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/europe/uk/england/london/time/) and compare with your local time, I find that less confusing than the timezone map
