Shard Change Notice: Tuesday 1/3/2011 7pm US/Mountain
I'm going to take the shard down to replace a file that clients download with a new one that was built with our build system. It should keep the game in the same state as it is now (identical to MOULa). This is a test of the last untested build process to generate new game files. The downtime should be minimal, but if the new game file turns out to have problems I'll take Minkata down again and restore the previous file.

What's changed? This is the first time the python scripts used to control object behavior in the game have been converted into the python.pak file using our local toolkit. The python code is the same as MOULa, this is just a test that the resulting file is usable and elicits the same behavior in gameplay as the original MOULa code.

I'm also going to update the MOSS server with some bug fixes that address database issues, and hopefully fix the Net6 crashes that occur upon linking from one age to another.

What should be tested after the change? Anything in the game that interacts with the player (the KI, for example) or is an object that changes it's behavior during gameplay (doors, cones, puzzles) will use these python scripts. They should all be behaving normally. It is likely that if something is wrong, it will be dramatically wrong, producing a game crash or a hung game. Please report these types of bugs (and include your game logfiles as described here.)
