Did restarting all the sims fix region crossing problems?

Recommended Posts

I've had my best few days ever with region crossings. I've been all the way around Bellessaria in a boat. I've flown a helicopter from the west coast of Bellessaria all the way north across Sansara to Denby for a meeting and back. I've driven one of my motorcycles fast around Satori for an hour, at speeds up to 120KPH. Zero region crossing failures.

Oz and Simon insist they haven't changed anything or deployed a new version of the sim code. But, last week, every sim on the grid was rebooted to undo a bad change. Things immediately got much better. What are others seeing?

Maybe we just need more frequent sim restarts on a regular basis. LL supposedly restarts sims about once every 3 weeks to a month. That may be too infrequent.

I thought I'd test this out, but didn't get far until I encountered a Bellisseria-adjacent, strangely sick sim, "Delby Depths", that seems to have special trouble with sim crossings (vehicles optional). Unfortunately, it's hard to gather consistent data because I keep getting totally wedged and eventually disconnected trying to cross out of that region.

This may be just the one sick sim on the grid, though.

As I wrote several times in this forum, region crossing issues come and go, apparently without any changes made — I've seen it happen over the years. I even remember that some time ago LL tested some code at a few sims in Blake Sea but I could never notice any change, crossing into/out those sims didn't get better than doing it at other regions that were healthy.
Yes, it's got better, I've had no issues but I'm not holding my breath.
Supposedly, regions are automatically restarted on a 10 days cycle. And yes, of course that after a restart regions do get in a healthy state unless something goes wrong.
Issues on crossings, coming and going, may have many causes, as you know, from buggered sims to network bottlenecks. Possibly, many times it's a set of different bad things happening coincidentally... As far as I know, LL could never determine the cause, maybe because there isn't a single cause.

As usual, variable results just now, but if it's like this before the weekend even starts it's hard to be optimistic.

If regions are restarted on an automatic 10-day cycle, that's not what I am seeing. Undocumented changes, again?
