Excellent! I'll have to try this stuff out!
Nice! I was wondering about what to do when you have a newer/updated version, without the hastle of having the older one deleted and all the posts with it.
Is there ver.B?
So how does this work? Does it happen automatically when you post something by the same name, or do you have to do something specific? I'd like to update my alphabet, specifically. Thanks!
It's automatic. I didn't even know it existed until I updated my levels and it did it.
I remember updating something awhile back expecting this to happen; but it didn't. :P
I assume it'd be similar to how a level will detect updated assets (ignoring changes in name, description, etc.); but how does it recognize it as the same thing?
It does seem to work; I'm guessing the old and new item have to be named exactly the same thing. Doesn't affect the download history, rating, or comments, but before I concealed the old versions, a link was added in the description of each version to the other. Apparently it's supposed to also work when submitting an edited version of someone else's creation, which is actually pretty useful for keeping track of, well... versions.
It relies on a unique ID present within the creation - you can not see it or modify it. You can rename things with no worries, and it does not take into effect the comments or downloads of older versions for statistical purposes.
