Well without knowing I have said in a previous post somewhere that in order for the test to actually test the server it needs to be big enough so that enough people can download the file at the same time. A 1 mb file wont do the trick here seeing as most people can download that in less than 1 second. I would imagine something like 100-400 mb. Which could technically be enough for a very very small demo of the game, possible the dev map with the claas and/or mb trac and maybe the cultivator and/or plow. The base game of FS17 without the data folder is around 400 mb if you then add a small map 512x512 with flat terrain and a few 3d object(trees, building, road segments) you add 200 mb at most(Old Streams V2 is 220ish and thats a beautiful and pretty detailed map) that adds up to 600 then add in 2 tractors and 2 implements that's about 80 mb. This is based on the fs17 file sizes which most likely wont be far off CnC sizes ... with all that said I would be surprised if we get a mini demo

THIS is all speculation on my part. it could also just be a small video showing off something or something else but one thing I do know is that the file needs to be big enough if they want as many as possible to download at the same time. Wont make sense if 10 people start downloading and then when the next 10 starts the previous 9 are already done. Unless of course you can set the launcher to download automatically but I doubt that.
