Last January, the brick world was aghast when a news item spread like wildfire over the Internet regarding the discontinued support that were looming over LEGO’s Digital Designer. With such consternation across AFOL (Adult Fans of Lego) forums, the LDD’s Consumer Services Team were quick to clarify that continued support will still be provided for LDD’s current functionality. This means that they will not be doing automatic updates, but more elements will be added from time to time.
Now, as a way to stay true to their word, LDD has recently launched Version 4.3.9 as a patch if you have installed a previous copy already, or by clicking on the download graphic above to begin downloading the installer from the LDD website. If you have LDD previously installed, it will prompt you to download and install the update, otherwise you may proceed and continue offline. The patch is around 280MB in size so it might take several minutes before the update is applied.
We’re thankful for the efforts of our friends over at Eurobricks.com for the handy pdf file that includes all the new elements included in 4.3.9. Credit goes to forum member Superkalle for sharing this great piece of info.
