idoc changes?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Eyes of Origin, Mar 16, 2011.

  1. i might be mistaken, but didnt idoc stages change at server restarts?

    ie. greatly worn this morning at server up, would go idoc at server up tomorrow?

    anyone know?...

    guess im confused... this afternoon a house i was watching was greatly... figured it would go idoc in the morning, but 6 hours later i go to log out at the house and find its already idoc.

    They didn't change at server-up. Not sure if it was the same on all shards, but on Siege houses that decay due to account inactivity would change state somewhere between around 1am and 4am Eastern. A few would change later in the day, but I think they may have been ones where the owner had placed a house elsewhere.

    However, things have certainly been a bit weird of late and I haven't quite determined what is going on. Perhaps it is due to the recent server changes.

    Idocs that used to FALL between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm central now fall either before or after server down on Pac, so either before or after 7 am central, so there has been about a 3 hour change to Fall times for sure.

    (I'm guessing that is due to the recent change to new server hardware.)

    Since idocs fall 7 hours plus any server down time that occurs AFTER they change to In Danger of Collapsing, this means that the decay status change also got pushed to 3 hours earlier than it used to be.

    I used to start watching for the final decay status change, Greatly to In Danger of Collapsing, at 2 am, now i have to start at 11 pm.
  4. that sounds about right... and here I thought I was going to get away with sleeping before the house fell... good thing I'm off today.

    IDOC timer is tied to payment date and time.
