There's still a patch to build and to test.

We're not delaying things just to torture you, as much appeal as the thought may have. ;)

Yes, yes you are enjoying this! Taking pleasure on little things in life, like making us drool for the 4.1 and me waiting for the license hahaha 😄

To give some impressions on what FPS you can expect with 4.156...and a large battle

With the release notes out, me doing accidental spoilers...is a thing of the past 😄

The 10th and final official video tomorrow "afternoon" (GMT+2; about the same time as yesterday).

The map installer will be made available for download (and installation) on Thursday, too.

And now, unlike any other week, Monday is something we are all looking forward to. 😀

Even if version 4.1 isn't really about new vehicles, maybe I should still post this summary:

 

Red arrows denote units that changed their parent menu.

Yellow arrows denote new unit types, or those with substantial changes.

It's "most of the units" because I didn't want to add the plethora of (mostly civilian) characters.

Disclaimer:  units "NATO target" and "B-412 FLIR"  are  SB Pro-specific features and  are not available in Personal Edition.

Is the Fennek "playable" or still just F8 view? 

F8 view only.

A potentially daft question but better to ask than "assume" and make an ass out of you and me:

 

If we download this when it arrives (pre 4.156) and install it, will it adversely effect an existing 4.023 (or other installation)?

 

I think I understand that the new maps will have a new file structure but can "C:\ProgramData\eSim Games\Steel Beasts" co-exist?

 

Am concerned for two reasons:

 

1. If downloading and installing the map installer "today" will mess with the existing installation of 4.023 prior to Monday's release of 4.156?

 

2. If I'll be able to maintain existing "SB Pro" versions on the same machine as SB Pro PE 4.156  and beyond?

I haven't tested it personally, but I can't think of a reason why it would.

The new map packages are completely independent of previous installations' ProgramData, unless you insist on instslling them into C:\ProgramDate\eSimGames\maps (and even then they will still not disturb the old files)

  1. No
  2. "Yes, but" ... legacy scenarios or map files that you open with the new version and then save in the new format will, of course, not be accessible by 4.023

Yes, in my experience you can install 4.1 and have 4.0 installed, it has been this way on my (and Beta tester's) machines for years and we managed to play TGIF. ;)

 

Obviously you have to install it into a different folder name though.  But the only time you run into problems is if you uninstall a version of SB *after* you install a new version. You always want to uninstall old version before you install the latest version, because otherwise you will end up missing some common files.

Will I be able to install the maps without the 4.1 license whilst I wait for the switch on my order?

Yes you can install them, but hopefully fairly obvious that you wont be able to use them until 4.156 arrives.

Thanks. That was my suspicion.

 

I have several copies of SB Pro and SB Pro PE on my machine, each in individual folders and they currently happily co-exist.

 

I just wanted to confirm that the new approach would not endanger that going foward.

 

No doubt as SB Pro moves to a similar construct things will become easier, not streamlined.
