I was going to release one at the weekend, but then I thought to wait until 103.0 is released.  In any case the lorries (along with everything else) are not balanced well, and that really needs fixing.  Is there general demand for an unbalanced release?

YES!

Or, at the very least, keep tossing things into SVN.

If you make unbalanced stuff available you suddenly have a pool of potential balancers. ;)

I haven't tried your new lorries yet, but I imagine it might be fun to balance them, maybe shooting for a baseline of operating cost = 40% of non-bonus cargo revenue on year of introduction . . . (I figure most freight is going to run at least 50% empty.)

I'd be happy to consult the conventional wisdom on balancing methodology, do a bit of grunt work, and submit diffs for your pak files . . .

OK, I can put together a release.  I need to test against the latest nightly to check nothing is broken, then that should do for the stable release of the exe. 

And thanks for the offer of balancing.  I'll open up a new thread with for discussion on proposed balancing methodology.
