any risk that something that is put out on experimental and then taken away, breaks saves, so good point yes there is a risk there because if, if, if you save if you play on experimental and you save on experimental you can't go back to Early Access early early access, because you can always you can always load a save fult that was made in an older version of the game but if you save in a newer version, that will not be possible and there's been a couple of times where we've had to to, to Coke back to like a previous version because like something huge snuck through QA or or like our smoke testing or whatever and it's like a Hu it's it's like we can't take the time to W fix that up, it's like an easy step just to revert what's live that's happened a couple of times usually we do like we would only do that if we notice it immediately that something's wrong it's it's a decision that comes in like with the first couple of hours so it doesn't really affect too many people when we do that but that that can technically happen, but we are aware that this is a huge bummer if people like we wouldn't do this if we have it on experiment for like one or two days and then realize oh we shouldn't we should revert back like we won't do that it's like within the next hour or so, of upd that goes live where we're like whoops and then we reverted, so so yes the risk exists but it shouldn't really affect too many people honestly, and if it affects anyone it's like you lose like maybe an hour of work or something like that you know what I mean, unless you really bot your safe Falls then you'll have to wait until it next experimental but like when we do put out something experimental and we need to revert it we obviously intend to put it out a next a new update because we want to get that update out you know like so so the ramifications of that happening aren't super severe so I wouldn't worry about it too much honestly, famous Les words
