Dev Diary 15/2024: Making Great Strides in Scheduling

This week, we continued our major overhaul of the network scheduling for our next update and achieved significant progress. 🚀

Next Time On Endless Studio…

We've been diligently working on the scheduling revamp to ensure the next release is ready as soon as possible. Since our last Dev Diary, we have:

  • Developed a new method to store all data for the updated scheduling processes,
  • Implemented an archiving system for old scheduling data to prevent slowdowns in games with extensive progress,
  • Established a new broadcast/cable scheduling logic that operates weekly to optimally fill each time slot,
  • Refined the streaming scheduling logic to support both weekly single-episode releases and full-season drops,
  • Introduced a new setting for streaming networks to choose between airing an episode weekly or releasing a full season at once,
  • Enhanced the initial scheduling framework for starting new games.

Next, we'll focus on refining the viewership calculations and the renewal/cancellation logic to align with the new scheduling formats.
