A separate thread reminds people that most vehicle models got updated. As a consequence, most old vehicle skins that modders have created and that people have collected, will not work without showing visual artifacts. The official advise by eSim is to delete the skin folder completely before installing SBP 3.0

Regarding old scenarios, eSim has reiterated their intention to leave old scenarios functional, although this obviously cannot be achieved without the need for minor modifications. The sim in version 3.0 brings new features and changed functionality details. These differences need to manually checked for and, where needed, corrected for existing scenarios. But in principle - old scenarios remain to be playable. This need is not different to earlier SBP upgrades.

Newly released screenshots confirm the following content:

* AMX-13 with 75mm gun (edit: non crewable)
* PT-76 (edit: also non-crewable? Most likely, but not explicitly confirmed)

A dozen of the oldest buildings in the SBP library have received a facelift.

I believe I also identified new rubble structures, but I am not certain on that point.

Confirmed:

* Leopard-1A2 (non-crewable)
* Leopard-1V (non crewable)
* prolonged transition phases from darkness to brightness (and vice versa) at dusk and dawn.

Addendum:

AMX-13 confirmed to be non-crewable, too.

Screenshots from dusk and dawn released today show - to my relief - that the light conditions do not shift the colour palette excessively into the comic-styled hysterical red or violet, like so often to be seen in other sims (and the pink sky in current SBP 2.6xx as well).

They have started with gradually replacing older buildings with new 3D-models that have inner spacings, open 3D windows and internal walls. This swapping of buildings will continue for the forseeable future, I understand. Plans are to have them ready for some so far unrevealed future features from 2015 on.

Koen at eSim boards just reminded of this nice article by simHQ back from 2006, which I completely missed at that time, so it was a first read for me today. A good tactical first advice for newbies in tanking:

LINK: A flightsimmer's guide to Steel Beasts

Link added to the SBP resource thread.

Confirmed:

That thing looks like a burglary prevention device!

Indirectly confirmed by a mysterious hinting by Ssnake:

* old explosion and smoke effects no longer there

Whatever that means in the end. But the old visuals are gone, that much seems to be certain. Most likely means: complete replacement.

I missed the small difference:

* playable: Leopard-1A5 GE (so far we had the Leo1A5 DK)

---

Me thinks with the - so far unplayble - M60A3 and Leopard-1 in four versions, the T-55, T-62, four T-74, T-90, Leopard-2A4, M1A1, Centuiron, AMX-15, and several cold-war era APCs for both sides, one can now set up some really nice cold war scenarios without abuing improvised vehicles types as placeholders. And some more cold war stuff maybe coming.

---
On a side-note, Cobrabase has an extensive Youtube channel, 140 videos about SBP and tank-related stuff. He did two well-done explanatory videos where he compares the Leo-2A5 with the M1A1HA, and the frightening (in its time) frontal armour of the T-80U with Western weapons and Western tanks. I think he misses or ignores two or three points in the M1-Leo2 comparison, but in general I think he really got the stuff nicely and correctly together. Maybe there will be something like that for the Leopard-2A6 and the M1A2(SEP) in the future, I would really know what he has to say.

According to technical director of eSim, Ssnake, the likely release date is 4th of July.

* Infantry now affected by how tired they are. The more exhausted they are, the slower they run/walk.
