New Build up now!

I feel that i can safely call this beta build the first release candidate.

in the following 2 weeks, i will be testing this in lower expansions,
making sure that this mod looks good under different sims 2 expansion configurations.

if all tests go well, the next build will be the long-awaited "Golden Master".


Now i should ask: Should i put this Mod's update in it's own download thread?
or should i update the existing download thread.

I'm asking because i pretty much have to rewrite the entire thread on the day of release
and i also need to take a lot of new screen captures,
since this mod's new textures are completely different from the older version 2.4.1

Additionally, i will be keeping version 2.4.1 available for download for those who prefer the older textures.

I just need your input on that.

@simmester

Phase 1 is complete, i suggest you read the release notes to see what has changed since the previous build.
this build being a Release Candidate means that this build could become the Golden Master (GM) build.

and If you are wondering, there is no harm in trying this mod's update while it's in beta,
because this update is structurally the same as version 2.4.1, just with new textures across the mod.

you can just upgrade like you would going from any 2.x release to the current release,
and if you want to go back to the current public release, you can always downgrade back to 2.4.1.
