Last night I stayed up until 2am to grind out a final overhaul of a system in World // Zero. I can’t remember if I submitted the draft or not, but the code was complete and I went to bed.
Thismorning I woke up and was working on my other computer, doing some GUI changes. I adjusted the size of some guis, and uploaded new icons to replace old ones. We had a power outage 30 minutes later.
I booted my PC back up and noticed none of my gui changes had saved. This is odd because team create is enabled, and these are not script changes. I then noticed my scripts from last night weren’t changed, so I figured I forgot to submit the draft on my laptop. I went to my laptop and the drafts are empty. So this work has been erased.
I have had 2 of our builders tell me they’ve been experience build progress getting reverted in the past week, and have turned off team create to avoid the issue.
tl;dr Team Create / drafts are currently not in a reliable state and should be disabled until Roblox can verify developers time is not being wiped.
We are going to try doing manual merges of our scripts with offline-places for the time being. This has a major impact on our ability to operate & scale a game studio. Roblox needs to have working collaboration tools, or switch to supporting proven tools such as GitHub out of the box. Team create has been having issues deleting people’s work for years and I thought it was finally patched.
