    Default Sherman Hill Question for Marc

    Hello Marc,
    Just curious - do you plan on releasing another full route (WIP) for upload, or will you continue to upload just updates until the route is complete?
    I think I have got myself way out-of-sync, and because I am always busy with other things, thought it would be easier to wait for a future full route update vs. latest update.

    Continued success on your project

    Thanks very much,
    Neil

    Hi Neil ,

    As far as I know, the current full route download always contain all patches, except the currently available and latest update.

    Regards Claus

    I see. I wasn't aware the full route kept "current".

    Thanks Claus!

    I think that the full route build is updated periodically to incorporate the previous updates done since the previous build was posted.The date of the latest full route build is always posted which contains the route plus all previous updates to that date.

    On the other hand, the update file is cumulative, building on the previous update. Once the updates accumulate to a certain point (known only to Marc), they are incorporated into the full route and a new full route build is posted.

    That has been the way it has been done to my knowledge, as I have at least three different full route builds for Sherman Hill in my backlog files.

    That's why I try and always put out cumulative updates. When in doubt, full build + update always keeps you current.
