At the launcher menu, i never knew i could switch servers lol. But i was curious about this

We have created a new code that you can enter either at the trion web site, or when logged into the PTS servers:

........................................

This code will do a one time grant of:
10k Arkforge
All 5 DLCs
+2 Character slots
4 Jackpot Lockboxes
1 Biohazard lockbox
1 Powertech lockbox
3 T4 Lockboxes
1 Machinist lockbox
1 Outlaw lockbox
1 Survivalist lockbox
1 Veteran Lockbox
25 +15 slot inventory modules

And, this code will give a recurring monthly grant of
2k Arkforge
4 Jackpot lockboxes
30 days Patron Pass
300 of each reputation*

So do i need to uninstall the game i have and install the PTS server or can i just use that code for na server?

Hi Legendary

Yes, you can access PTS - which stands for Public Test Servers.
We created that code for the PTS Servers (and only PTS Servers) to help out people who want to test on there!

PTS is a separate patch depot, and thus a separate install of the game. You can, however, have PTS and Live installed at the same time.

just a reminder, if you decide to enter the PTS world
you can have your character copied (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?167724-PTS-Bonuses-Character-Copy) to PTS.
not sure if it happened to everyone, but for me, not all my completed pursuits made it, but they were already completed, so I will not be able to get them for EGO points, and the result of that was my copied character was lower ego level then my main live. and I will not be able to reach cap.
I'm okay with that, just giving a heads up so there will be less shock if such a thing would shock you (or others planning to do the same)

For the laser suggestion: http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?170975-Defiance-Community-Q-amp-A-August-8

Q: Could we have a sight mod which has a NPC sniper or Helibot laser sight trail thingey?

A: That rifle effect is very processor intensive, so we have to be very careful how many we render on the screen at a time. As such, we cannot make it available to players.

For the rain suggestion: http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?172596-Community-Q-amp-A-August-22nd

Q: Do we have an updated time for when rain could appear again in Silicon Valley?

A: We are only happy when it rains properly, so we will likely hold off on this for a bit. There were two issues that caused us to pull rain: There were some bugs with rain being completely blocked when inside buildings, and the geometry on trees that pointed down (away from the rain) has visual issues. Besides while there lots of fog and rain in San Fran, its almost always sunny further down in Silicon Valley.

There are probably other responses to some of your suggestions in older Q&A threads. If you really want your ideas to get attention post them here in the form of a question: http://www.defiancedata.com/questions.php

If its good and people like it they can back the question.

Glyph allows your to chose separate install locations depending on the servers you are connecting to. Live-US and Live-EU can share patch data. PTS can not share patch data with Live (since we put out content unique to PTS and if we shared it, it would conflict with live).

By default, PTS will chose separate install locations - as you as you don't change this things should be fine (you can manually change the install locations under settings as well).

Expect a long, initial, download for PTS to get up to date, then you should be fine.

Sure, Ill try and take a look at those questions.
