Heads up for all Developers!
We improved script collaboration with Collaborative Editing in Team Create. It was opt-in, like a Beta feature, so we could monitor feedback on any impact it had on your workflow. From the games that use this, we have seen an objective improvement and are ready to move it forward.
At some point next week (February 17-21, 2020), we are going to turn Collaborative Editing ON by default in Team Create.
What does this mean for you?
If you are using Team Create and already turned on Collaborative Editing - you are all set!
If you are using Team Create but didn’t turn on Collaborative Editing yet, we will turn this on for you next week. Editing scripts will no longer lock your team members out. Scripts that you edit will be shown in the Drafts widget that you can commit when you are ready.
For now, you can still turn the setting back to OFF. But please give us feedback if you feel this wasn’t an improvement for you.
What if I don’t use Team Create?
Then there is no change in behavior for you.
Where do we go from here?
You probably guessed this already, the next step after this will be to make Collaborative Editing just be part of Team Create. Once we have addressed any feedback we receive, we will remove this option (Game Settings > Options > Enable Collaborative Editing) in the future.
