RoR 0.32, IGF, no network

Finally the long-brewing new version of RoR is out!

Contrary to previous announcements, I had to make a strategic change of priority in order to enter the Independent Game Festival, and meet their October, 1st deadline.

That important choice has two consequence:
  • I had not enough time to develop and test a functional network version before the deadline. So I concentrated on finalizing a clean 0.32, "IGF edition" version of the game, and report the network feature to version 0.33. My plan is to concentrate on network right now, and release 0.33 ASAP.
  • I will not change the way Rigs of Rods is developed until the result of the IGF.
Features of the new version are:
  • New installer package
  • Smooth roads
  • Tons of new vehicles, sorted by category, thanks to all the contributors!
  • Different spawn points for trucks, airplanes, boats, and loads
  • Experimental vegetation, thanks to Thomas
  • Upgraded objects model, LUA scripting, and mission support capability
  • Update to Ogre 1.4.3
  • Many other features and bugfix
Enjoy!

Not having netplay is a disappointment, but the huge performance increase I seem to be getting really makes up for it. And the roads are finally usable now!

Is this some kind a of a joke? Until this version everything went perfectly, but now came a time of pointless and stupid "improvements" This version is all fucked up, only pointless changes were made, no real improvement at all. Everything changed to the worse. No offence but maybe it wasn't that a great idea for thomas to join the "team"

every one there own idea
but i can say that the 0.32 is super
it is faster than 0.31 whit the same settings
and if you don't like the improvements than stick whit 0.31,easy as that

g, How exactly is adding different spawn points for the vehicles, nicer menus, better object format, Lua and missions a pointless update, I'm sorry, but you fail.
