State Of Deployment Info Thread: The Second Dream Hath Arrived


Recommended Posts

could someone explain this to me? xD does this mean on the brink of deploying?

Nope, it means that they do not yet even know what they are releasing, still working on it and do not have a build ready to even think about deploying. It will be along way off - probably many hours.

This is pretty much par for the course.  DE is halfway killing themselves trying to get everything ready right now, have been all day, and will be until like 11:30am tonight, if they get it out today.  Just throw a sweet clan hall party to celebrate the coming update.

To answer an earlier question - When DE reffers to 'build candidates', it means that they have a whole bunch of different new things, existing(live) things, and variables within those elements all mushed together in code to form a 'build'.  When they get ready to push a particular set of code to what we as players see as 'live', that big set of stuff has to pretty much play nice ( no bugs, odd things, leaky memory holes, messed up behaviors/textures, etc. ) as much as possible. 

 

Each time anyone changes any part of any of those items, variables, etc., it means a different build, because sometimes ( ugh, often ) in coding, changing a tiny thing in one place makes a huge set of issues/behaviors somewhere else that you weren't planning on.  So, part of what they do as a company, is look for and test a few stable candidates that employ the changes they -want- to push, without comprimising stability of the overall program.  ( Again, perfect world scenario )

 

Hope this helps clear things up!
