Try and pay attention. Below each of them it says "Full Version, Patch, Skin Pack" if it says patch..Yes you need to download anything that says Full Version that matches That Patch Version.

Fair point. Parts 1,2 and 3 used to be on Gamefront, but not ModDB. However, Gamefront then decided to clear all of boothy's uploads, so I had to upload the 3 parts to ModDB. Of course, this will have been after 3.3 was put up.

So..! If I may ask, when is the Adeptus Mechanicus stuff headed our way? This update, or the one after that, what?

..'Cause I'm looking forward to that a lot more than GK stuff.
