The Beta Preview has been refreshed with another set of fixes, detailed below. The Havok4 project team is working to replace the physics engine in Second Life with a new version. This build resolves a number of avatar and vehicle behaviors, as well as some performance adjustments.
The Havok4 Beta Server regions on the Beta Preview have been updated to v220.127.116.11587
The Havok1 reference regions have been updated to v18.104.22.168747 (same version as on the main Second Life system)
More Havok4 project information, including new linkability rules and a listing of regions currently enabled on the Havok4 Beta Preview, is posted here:
