Default Quesation re: GCA 4 Data Update (29DEC2016)

If I am downloading a current version of GCA4 from Warehouse 23, do I need to run this update (or the patch from the same page)?

No, if you download the installer from Warehouse 23, you have the most current program and data files available in installer form. You gain nothing running the Patcher or the Data Update installers in addition.

However, it's been a while since those installers were built, and Eric has made available a number of files that he's updated since they were released, which are available in this thread: Sticky: [Official] GCA Data Files available for download.

Thank you! That's what I was thinking, but wasn't positive, so felt I should ask. Our gaming group is readying a new GURPS campaign, and the GM is wanting everyone to use GCA (hooray!)

And I give thanks also to Eric and everyone else who has ever made a template for GCA. I'm finally starting my own learning curve on it, after I don't know how many years of using GCA (when was version 1 released?)

Early in 1995. It's gotten a lot better since then.
