Hi all DS players,
I was wondering if anyone had advice on testing ships in Beta. All the planets are unknown from what I saw and zero AI to kill. Is there a certain system to test in? Any advice would be great.

The beta maps get reset to blank at every beta-update so we don't have any anomalies.

If you did pay attention to what the latest Beta update was about then you would have noticed that you need planets and Shipyards in order for AI to start spawning at all.
Since the map is empty, no AI.

The best place to test AI changes would be in the Ursa-Minor sector. (aka Newbie-Area) (Williams 38a, Williams 22, Cephid Prime)
As this sector has a spawn-gate for all three factions.

As to testing advice, this differs each time to what you want to test.
At the moment we looking at AI spawn rates, so just grab a ship and look if you actually notice a difference between enemy opposition.

P.s; Do not capture/bomb shipyard planets.
