I quickly opted in to the SU 7 Update Beta because there were a few things on my list I really wanted to try out, like Bush Trip fixes and weather improvements. SU8 is a strictly bug fix update, and to Asobo’s credit, the list of bug’s fixed is extremely long.
However, SU 8 has nearly nothing that was on my list, and a tiny fraction of the bugs fixed are important enough to have been flagged by the community. Here are the stats:
Not including SDK and Reno fixes, there are 219 individually listed bugs fixed in the SU8 Beta. Of that list, 8 were shown as identified from community input, so, by us. That is 3.6% of the bugs fixes are ones we deemed important enough to file and vote up for investigation. Of the 219 bugs, only 3 of them appeared to be bugs I have seen, and none of those were game-breakers.
So my question to those of you who have taken the Beta, has it been worth it, and why?
This also begs the question how Asobo comes up with their list of bugs to fix. I would trade in 216 of the 219 fixed bugs for 5 of the game breaker bugs that are talked about here every single day.
