Default GURPS Vehicle Builder version question

Hi there, just a quick question: Am I wrong in believing the Vehicle Builder was made for GURPS 3e? Is there any difference between vehicles in 3e and 4e? In other words, if I get the Vehicle Builder, will I be able to use it with my GURPS 4e books?

GVB was built for GURPS Vehicles 2nd edition, which is a GURPS 3rd edition book. The GURPS Vehicle Designer book (for GURPS 4th) is currently in production, as is the updated version of GVB.

To answer your question: No. The current version of GVB is for GURPS 3rd. OTOH, if you know the changes between GURPS 3rd and 4th, GVB is perfectly useable, you will simply have to edit the output slightly.

Thank you ever so very much, that's all I needed to know.

As an aside, however, could I ask if there are any plans for a weapon builder? Cuz that seems to be another thing with variable stats that's pretty complex to write up.

Thanks again, in advance.

The current version of GVB includes all the weapon building rules as templates in the repositories. We know the current version of GURPS Vehicle Designer (the update to GURPS Vehicles) will not have the weapon design rules included. They are slated for a future product called GURPS Armory. Current status of GURPS Armory is it has a name but I know nothing further about it.
It is our plan to include the GURPS Armory rules into GVB once the product becomes available.
