    It gives me great pleasure in announcing the release of Scorched3D version 42.
    New features include:
    o Optimized graphics rendering to take better advantage of hardware
    o Scripting language support for weapons and server scripts
    o Much larger landscapes supported
    o Added multi-lingual support for chatting and player names
    o Added localization support for dialogs and messages
    o Some gameplay adjustments
    o Better LAN/Internet communications for less timeouts
    o Some new maps

    Download Version 42 here:
    http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/downloads.php

    Full list of version 42 updates here:
    https://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=661264&group_id=85144

    Many thanks to the developers and contributors, and a special thanks to the current scorched3d server admins without whom there wouldn’t be any official servers.

    The 41 -> 42 patch did not work for me. Received the following error:

    Edit: It’s seems the problem is with launching the client using the server list or .s3l files.

    I went with the full version and had no problems at all. It took about 1 min. and 15 seconds to download with the total time to install and start a game being less than 5 minutes.

    Until the offical servers come up, I can only report that it is playing fine locally.

    I can hardly wait to try out the mass tank kill on the servers.

    Here’s what someone had to say on IRC about the release:

    12:57 The .tar.gz for download at sourceforge.
    12:57 It is not a .tar.gz
    12:57 Is it an uncompressed tar
    12:58 Scorched3D-42-src.tar.gz is not compressed.
    12:58 Since it has a .tar.gz ending on it and is not compressed that causes an unexpected
    problem for my download scripts.
    12:59 Thanks for providing Scorched3D
    12:59 I appreciate it.
    12:59 🙂

    I haven’t had a chance to download it myself, but the size of the tarball given on the download page is suspicious.

    Thanks, it does seem to be an issue I’ll look into it.

    Yeah it wasn’t zipped, that explains the huge upload time! I’ve fixed it now.

    Either compile from source or use “alien” to convert the RPM to a DEB, which you can then install with “dpkg -i”.

    Correct. Also, has the .scorched3d directory in the users home directory been removed? I uninstalled v41.3 then installed v42 and it was gone.

    I believe he still has it flushing out old mods and settings before
    inserting new version..
    Back-up those mods and id-keys..

    It should ask when you remove it if you want to remove the .scorched directory.
