Products Going "Gold"?

Recommended Posts

I see a FS product has been noted as "going gold" on the Avsim homepage. Just wondering what this actually means? I presume it's due to achieving a certain number of sales. But what is the figure? Are there any other "levels" - silver,platinum for example?

It means that they have so called a "gold" disc that can be copied in mass production to reach public.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2

It means the beta testing has been completed and the code has been "locked down" (no more changes) and it's ready to sell to the public. All that's left is to start duplicating CDs and getting them in the production pipeline. If it's a download product, it should be available within days.
