There is either a delay on GOG's part or there is something wrong on my end, as I am still on patch 1.6 and I cannot get it to update. I tried the verify/repair, check for updates and unchecking auto-update to see if the patch is listed yet (it is not).

TL;DR The delay is on our end. I'm going to pass on Hugh's message to a similar question posted elsewhere.

It's not GOG's fault, rather a combination of how we work all the way down to the wire and how they bugtest *all* game builds that get uploaded to their service. From a developer's standpoint it's awesome that they put this kind of oversight into their platform, and they've helped us troubleshoot some implementations like the GoG achievements. But it also means that they need lead time on any new builds, and that they can only process those builds during working hours in Poland.

So to actually answer your question of when the GOG build will get posted, it'll be sometime Monday morning in the US. It would've gotten posted today but after the initial patch launch on Steam we realized there were some additional fixes we needed to do so we've spent the day working on a hotfix. Since GOG has to review all builds that go through them, we opted to just defer the build review and have them only review the final hotfixed build once then post it Monday.

If we got things done ahead of time this wouldn't be an issue, but ehm, punctuality is not one of my strong suits.

Thanks for your patience in the interim, sorry you've had to wait for the new content.

Cheers,
Hugh

HughSJ: *snip*
Thank you very much for the new patch and content. :)
As pointed out by viperfdl, the v1.62 update should be live for GOG now
The patch is live, however the modkit and editor is still at 1.5c and shows as incompatible with the new version. When will this get updated?

The version compatible with v1.62 is not live on any platform currently but we're hoping to get it out end of this week. The new community compilation that's being added to the Modkit & Map Editor DLC has caused a slight snag but it's being finalized. Short version is, due to the memory ceiling which dictates how much can be added to the game and depending on your operating system, you may need to manually install the compilation one of two/three ways but it's not much hassle either if you're already used to the process.

Once it's out, if you find yourself running into trouble, please hop on over to our Discord server where you'll find the #maps-and-modding channel where there are plenty of experienced users that can help you out.
@BenjaminSJockeys

We've been on break for the past two weeks but we're back now. We'll be looking into resolving the various issues that have cropped up soon.
Updated to v1.62c (Galaxy & Offline Installer, Windows & Mac)

Changelog from Steam:

Bugfix Notes for August 4, 2021

ZED SPEAKS AGAIN:
- "Rebuke" horns (horns with a vocal component) should once again be audible.

Meatless Loadout Menu:
- Hitting the "Randomize" option should no longer assign you easter egg content when easter egg content has been disabled. SNC Obligate Munitions tenders its apologies.
Though it's not mentioned in the patch notes, the fire at your feet bug is now finally fixed!

russellskanne thank you for reposting it. We'll see about formally reposting and bugfix notes to the GOG forum in the future.
My copy wouldn't autoupdate, I had to manually validate the files. Then the 1.62 patch applied.

Saying just incase anyone else doesn't know why there's still says an older version (in my case, 1.5).

I did like the 1.5 loading screen better though. This one is to Mechwarrior/Battletech-ish. :)
